Robert Franklyn George 1933-2018

Robert Franklyn George (Bob) was born on February 2, 1933 in New Castle, Indiana to Franklyn and Helen George.

As a young boy, Bob started to show a talent for singing as he sang solos in church and school plays. He loved to play basketball especially with his best friends with whom he remained close throughout his life. Bob attended Indiana University where he was in a group called the Singing Hoosiers. He was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

After graduation from Indiana University, he was drafted in the Army 9th Infantry Division in Goeppingen, Germany. Bob was in the Special Services where he was a lead singer with the Army band. The group travelled throughout Germany entertaining troops. Bob met the love of his life, Amy, at the Cooke Barracks NCO club in Germany. Bob and Amy married in Germany and then came back to the United States.

After many years of working in the business world, Bob felt that something was missing in his life even though he had a beautiful wife and family. He felt empty. Bob found the answer to his emptiness when a friend shared with him the unconditional love of Jesus. By faith, Bob accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. After receiving Christ, he had a strong desire to share the message of hope in Jesus Christ with others so he followed the call of God and started his own ministry.

Bob founded Discipleship Counseling Services and People to People ministries. He wrote the best-selling book Classic Christianity which has been translated into 26 languages. He is the author of numerous books, Bible studies and audio series. Bob's People to People radio broadcasts helped countless people nationwide. It was a live call-in show that provided biblical answers to the problems that people were facing in their lives. His clear and practical way of teaching the Bible was a gift from God. He always pointed to the Scriptures for the answers and always made sure that the callers knew "beyond a shadow of a doubt" that they were going to heaven. He led many people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Bob and Amy's ministry, People to People, took them all around the world as they taught people about the love of God. This same message is continuing today through Bob George Ministries. God's grace is shared everywhere as an extension of his People to People ministries which he founded many years ago. His Classic Christianity radio broadcasts can be heard daily on 770 KAAM-Dallas and 670 KLTT Denver as well as online. Bob George Ministries is continuing and growing to this day.

I just wanted to share my thoughts and prayers for the family of Bob George! God used Bob George's book, Classic Christianity, to change my life when I was a young mother struggling to be a 'good enough' Christian and feeling like a failure. Learning about God's grace and unconditional love for me has been the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me and I prayed the prayer at the back of the book when I finished reading. Just to know that God is love and we are under grace not law has meant so much! I shared this book with my mom and grandma and they too loved it. I shared it with my pastor and he loved it and began passing it out to people at church. I also taught it in a Bible study at church and started a blog online to share what I'd learned. A pastor in New Zealand made a Bible study for his congregation out of some of the blog posts. So the message of grace that Bob George shared went all the way around the world! Please know that I am so grateful for this man and his message and will continue to spread God's love! God bless you!

I phoned into People to People once with a question and a comment on "Victory Over Depression" written by Bob. I was blown away to hear a segment of the interview being used to advertise "Victory Over Depression" on an ad shortly after that. Bob's humility is what always struck me the most. It was obvious he had a huge heart for God and I always reference Him when sharing grace with others.

"The scriptures will line up like tumblers on a lock when you see where The New Covenant starts--after "D" cross."
"B.C" before the cross. Old Covenant.

Amazing quote from Bob George.

I missed him in Michigan around 2010 and regretted it. I live in 🇨🇦. I will see you in heaven very soon Bob!!!

After becoming a Believer in Jesus there was so many denominations tugging and pulling at me even Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons. Having being led to the LORD through a Assembly of God crusade I attended their local church for a time and then a United Pentecostal church. Driving truck was my career at the time and I turned to People to People broadcast and listened intently to my dear friend and brother Bob George. I found Grace and Truth in every message I bought books at the time tapes and then CDs I couldn't get enough. I learned to Grow in Grace and I have learned to share that same message with others. Jesus used Bob George to lead me out of works and legalism for which I am eternally grateful. I never got a chance to thank Bob in this world but will soon some fine day.

I have no idea how I came upon Classic Christianity as I have dyslexia and struggle to read books but the very few books I did read were from Bob and they have been a ministerial point of my walk as it changes lives from keeping the gospel clear, I have bought Classic Christianity buy the case and have shared it with select few as it is for those who are really searching as the truth even amongst the church is sometimes hard to find and it has been loved by those I have shared it with, I loved them so much and people to people that I came to Carrollton 2 xs to meet Bob and took my mother once as well, Bob's books will always be a cherished point in my christian walk as keeping it simple is always the best way to share the gospel and I am thankful to the Lord for giving Bob that wisdom Peter Stokes Jr

I was a seminary student in New Orleans, LA, from 1986-1988. I was on the air at the station that aired Bob's program. I listened to him, prayed and sought the scriptures until the Lord got through my skull this message: You are forgiven, eternally. The Father used Bob to change me and my preaching. What a blessing Bob was to myself and my family.

My youngest daughter used to dance and sing when we listened as a family to the introduction song of People to People on the radio years ago in the early 2000's! Then we would listen to all of the real life incoming phone calls to the radio show and how Bob would emphasize the finality of the cross and the grace of our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Some callers would go off on a tangent and Bob would firmly bring them back from their "nonsensical" thinking to eternal life found only through faith in Jesus Christ. My wife and I still listen to some of the old radio broadcasts, still with profound impact.

Bob's ministry was used by the Lord to encourage me to overcome fear and to share the Gospel at funerals and nursing homes. We still thank the Lord for using Bob George to preach the Gospel!

Around 1994, after spending years trying to earn Gods acceptance and never feeling I quite measured up, I broke down and cried out to God to show me what I was missing and that if He didn’t open my eyes, then I would never know peace in my walk with Christ. By “coincidence”, I heard Bob George on the radio THAT VERY DAY for the first time. And I knew by the inner witness of the Holy Spirit, that the message this man was giving on radio, was the message I needed to hear. God used Bob to change my life. About 7 years later, I met Bob in Dallas after Sunday services. I thanked Bob from the bottom of my heart and started to tell him how he had been used by God to help me, but Bob didn’t seem interested in his part of it. He wanted to know more about my wife and I personally rather than talk about himself. Enjoy heaven dear brother. I will catch up with you when I arrive. Thanks for being a vessel that God used to free me.

I met Bob and Amy in 1970-73 when my wife and I were on the Lay Ministry staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. I look forward to spending time reading and listening to what the Lord did and continues to do through my brother in the 40 plus years since those early years in the 70's. Praise be to God for His faithfulness to Bob.

I stumbled across People to People Ministries on the radio around the early 90’s. Being raised Catholic, I appreciated Bob’s gentle teaching style yet firm in his knowledge of the gospel message. Now I don’t pass up an opportunity to tell others, even my non denominational pastor, that a butterfly will never be a caterpillar again but can still do wormy things.
Thank you, Bob George family, for selflessly sharing him with the world.

I started listening to Bob George on the radio in Louisville, KY. Soon after I read his book Classic Christianity and did the companion bible study. These teaching changed my life.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bob in person in Champagne, IL at a conference where he taught and he was as engaging and humble, feisty and fiery as I imagined.
I've lost count of the number of copies of Classic Christianity I've given away or the number of times I've done the companion bible study in a group setting or with just one other.
This dear brother certainly met his beloved savior who welcomed him in to a big ole bear hug and declared, "Well done! My good and faithful servant!"
