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.
January 19, 2020
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!"
December 13, 2019
I spent many hours listening over the internet to Bob while working in Taiwan. I believe the Lord led me to the People to People website as I was going through tremendous confusion as a newborn Christian.
I remember making a special trip from South Africa to the 2004 conference like it was yesterday. So lovely to meet Bob and Amy and the rest of the crew.
I am deeply grateful for the message of Grace and Truth spoken with clarity, humour and humility by Bob. And as Amy says: Goodbye is not forever - see you again, Bob.

I was in a SBC seminary in 1984 when my wife and I began to listen to Bob. For years I struggled with the inconsistent teaching on forgiveness. What he said made sense and gave me a simple common sense understanding of forgiveness. I have served in churches for 40 years and my wife is a counselor and SBC seminary professor. Bob’s love for God and His word and for love and grace changed our life. I teach, preach, and live my life by God’s grace and I cringe at the thought of asking God for forgiveness because I have it! Past, present, and for all eternity.

There is no where else to go to hear pure truth and grace. Supporting anything less is very detrimental to our walk with Christ. I am blessed by God to have sat under Bob George's teaching for the last 30 years. It's right where I needed to be having spent the first 30 years under heavy legalism and lost. I have not encountered any other teaching so free of legalism and don't think I will until I meet Christ for the first time in Heaven. There is unbelievable push-back from all man-made religion against the grace message. Bob gave his all to get the grace message out. You're not going to hear Bob's teachings in virtually any man-made religion. That is sad!!! Thank you Bob!!
July 1, 2019
I remember the retreat in Colorado at glenaire, just great. Bob is having some fun right now, walking with Jesus !!!!
June 23, 2019
When shouting wouldn't have been enough I started living again. Dear Bob, your message of God's grace saved my life after 25 years of living in spiritual darkness. I was saved at the age of 23 but was never told the whole story. Excommunicated and shunned at 25, I was told I had lost my salvation and was going to hell. I lived like the devil for the next 25 years...and then one afternoon years ago I heard your radio program. The blinders came off my eyes and I saw the truth for the first time. I am almost 80 years old now and God's love and grace have carried me through though the consequences of those 25 years. See you in His heaven...
June 1, 2019
Legalism was the only aspect of “Christianity” I knew until finding Bob’s People to People broadcast many years ago. I was led to that broadcast by the Holy Spirit who continues to lead and teach me, lifting me more from the tomb (Law) to the refreshing wind of Life (Grace). This resonated so completely so as to open His life and mine to the relationship we now have (salvation.) I’m grateful to God for saving Bob and Christ working through him. I’ve realized how this is so troubling to the religionists, no different from the clashes Christ had with the religionist of His time. That clash becomes more apparent every year I’ve “grown in the knowledge and grace of Christ.” I’ve learned that grace is not a something but a someone and the world is very hostile toward Him, so much so as to murder Him. I can’t thank God enough for Bob George and I miss him.
May 24, 2019
I have just spent the past 3 hours reading Bobs book “Jesus Changes Everything” here in Johannesburg, South Africa. I hope his family reads my message- Bob has literally pointed me to spiritual freedom and renewal that I so desperately needed. I know that he is with the Lord, “good and faithful servant”
March 27, 2019
Sad to hear just now of Bob's passing last year, but joyful knowing he is with Jesus! I look back at the DCS Conferences of 1994 and 2009 on Mt. Hermon with great fondness. Especially 1994 as I was battling great depression and hopelessness. Everyone there was such an encouragement - I began to see that all hope wasn't lost - and it was the beginning of understanding God's unconditional love for me.
It was a pleasure meeting Bob and Amy on both occasions and my heart goes out to the family!
March 11, 2019
I came to the Lord in the late 1970's . Thanks to Bob through my darkest times in my life ,I came across his program on Warv in R.I. People To People .I loved the message he gave on the finality of the Cross and power of the Resurrection through Jesus Christ .I was saved. I faithfully listened to his program and how he help many like myself. Since not hearing the program in years , I always wondered what happened to Bob and People to People Ministry. Today I decided to check on internet and here I am . Sadden to hear Bob passed last year . But I know that he is absent in the body and present with the Lord. Thank you Bob and Amy and People to People for all you have done for me in my early days as a believer . God bless

Bob touched my life in New Jersey back in the 1980s… Via radio… And the discipleship counseling seminar you had here… I was fortunate enough to talk to he and Amy before he passed… To thank him for all he’s done for me… My 29-year-old son who is a Christian past year and a half ago… And Bob’s teaching really opened up my heart to get through it… The biggest Takeaway is life life life… And not the preoccupation with sin that today’s preaching tends to have… that Sam is on believe… And the preoccupation with the worlds version of Sam keeps us in bondage… I can’t think Bob and Amy enough… Debbie please please please try to get up to New Jersey/New York with your mom… My wife Diane and I are going to try to come down to see you all in Texas next year… I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done… Bob Ferla

I was sitting in a bible study today and sharing my freedom in Christ as taught to me through Bob's teaching when the Holy Spirit said to my inner self that Yes, listen to this! What rang true then, rings true now. I've never been the same since. So, in today's sharing of the finality of the Cross, and finding agreement in some of the faces saying "Yes, I want to listen to this," while others still grappled with their law of good works---I thought of Bob. Looked him up tonight and found his obituary from last June. Oh, how he will be missed here, But oh how happy he is there with Jesus His Savior and all the saints He set free indeed through Bob's fearless ministry in teaching us of Christ's unconditional love through reconciliation.
I attended the Discipleship training, the last one at Sonridge, in October 1991. I'll never forget that communion, which was the most tender-hearted and united experience I'd ever had and the only one like it ever since. All paled after that; however, that experience there--that unity in the faith--sustains me to this very day.
Thank you, Bob and Amy, for whatever it took to get Christ into you like He did and sharing Him with us. I can still hear Bob's voice over the radio waves, "Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying for my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and give me Life." I said these words today: Jesus died for me, to give His Life to me, to live His Life through me ...to honor the Truth behind Bob's simple explanations of the profound!

Good bye is Not Forever thanks to Bob and Any George. I had the distinct privilege of sharing a week in Sandy Cove Maryland in 1994 with all the Bobs, Ed Hecht and so many friends I have kept in touch with to this Day. The World is a better place because of All Bob and Amy gave to make it so. Our condolences to the Family. Thank you Lord for Bob George and Macolm Smith's interview at the NRB in 1989 my life has never been the same since.
May you all be set free by the infinite ways Bob George had for helping so many eyes and ears to open to the heart felt way he gave all the richs that are found in Christ Jesus. Thank You Amy for standing your Man. He changed our World with the Love of God.

I just heard about Bob's passing the other day. I remember soaking up his teachings on the radio from the People to people broadcast. It was Bob who solidified the doctrine of grace to me, and 2nd Cor. 5:21 became my favorite verse of scripture. I still have many of his broadcast on cassette tapes..lol. I went to Dallas to take part in the Discipleship training ..I think it was in 1989. I was impressed by his kindness and love for the scriptures. I will be eternally grateful for all that he taught me and I am sure he would be proud of me as I am passing on the message of grace to all who have ears to hear. May God bless you as you are missing and grieving the loss of this wonderful saint in Christ.

I started listening to Bob on the radio, driving to work and back. Things that he was teaching caught my attention. My wife and I also enjoyed listening to people calling in with questions, comments. We did get to see him in person. We got all of his study material that day. We shook hands, laughed and talked at the table while looking at the available teaching during a break. It was great! His family has our deepest sympathy. He will be greatly missed. We learned a lot from him.
September 23, 2018
I first heard Bob on radio in 1985, driving to work in Atlanta. Immediately, I knew the Lord connected me with an unparalleled "gift to the Body of Christ." The tenets of Bob's teaching will live on. Our prayer is that His teaching will continue reaching more and more pulpits and crusades throughout the world. Bob is probably the most oft-quoted teacher on earth by Christian pastors - a testimony that Bob truly was chosen in 1969 to carry the truth of God's grace to those with ears to hear. Bob often said the first person he'd like to meet in heaven after the Lord is Paul. For me - you guessed it. After Christ, I'll be looking for Bob!
September 10, 2018
I have just learned of Bob's passing. Oh how I fed on his broadcasts and books while in Seminary in the 80s. I've shared Classic Christianity with so many people. God bless your family as you are temporarily separated.

All my life I knew the importance of Calvary; and Christ removing my sins through His precious shed blood. I knew that the resurrection was crucial in scripture fulfillment, but I didn't understand how vital it meant to me. I lived a half-gospel. Until I listened to Mr. George on his People to People broadcast circa 1999. Now I understand that not only did Jesus died for me; He lives in me! I knew that I was saved but I didn't understand the full gospel of grace and power delivered to me until I listened to Mr. George expound it from the Scripture. Condolences to all Bob's family. We will all meet again very soon!
July 29, 2018
I am sadden yet rejoicing simply because I believe the heart of Bob George was pure and that Jesus has accepted him into heaven. I can and have continue to live by the lessons learned through Bob George Ministries. The impact has been priceless. I will ALWAYS remember him and I'm happy that he is with the Lord. Words just escape me right now because although I never formally met Bob George, I feel like he is my father, teacher, motivator, inspiration, guidance, and through his teaching, I am a different person today. I will FOREVER honor and admire him.

We thank God for using Bob to teach us about the grace and new covenant
of Jesus back in 1991. It was on the radio when I accidentally turned the
radio to am station. I was so down about all the law I had been under and
couldn't be free . I wanted to understand this grace that Bob was teaching .
I prayed Lord this sounds so radical, and if this is not of you I want nothing to do with it. I continued to listen, called the station , spoke to Ed Hecht
and started learning about law and grace. That is when my grace journey
began, I loved listening to Bob teach , he made it so easy to understand .
He had such a love of Jesus in his heart for wanting others to be set free too. We are forever greatful to Bob and the ministry that sets people free.
We still support the ministry and enjoy hearing him on our Denver,Co radio station, because we want others to learn about Jesus and the freedom that the grace brings . We love you all and pray for continuous comfort and support to spread this great news of Jesus Christ,
We will miss Bob, but we look forward to seeing him in our heavenly home .
Love , peace and grace through Jesus,
DeWain and Sue Stoll 💕😇💕

I'm so sorry for your loss. My brother held bible study in our home using the teaching materials from People to People. We started in 2009 when our son was born. What a weight that was lifted as I started to understand Grace. Fast forward 19 years of Bible studies we lost our precious son. I'm so grateful to Bob George for giving us such understanding. A child loss is devastating . I know it was not coincidence that we started our studies a few months after his nirth. I truly believe God was preparing us so we could lean on him. Bob was a daily voice in our home. We were so blessed to be a part of his teachings. Continued prayer for your family. Thank you Bob!

I am so sorry for your loss. What can I say except that Bob’s teachings changed my life. It was like being born again, again. I found him one day on my car radio in the early 90’s, while trying to tune into another program. When I heard what he was telling a caller about grace and the life of Christ in you, I couldn’t believe my ears. My first remembrance was that I knew what he was saying was truth. At the same time, I felt absolutely desperate to know more. I began recording his program on a portable cassette recorder while I was out, and listening each night for many months.
I attended a one day Saturday conference he held at Wheaton College, and was amazed that he taught this radical message purely from Scripture on an overhead projector.
I eventually read Classic Christianity, began teaching from it in a small group bible study, and attended three of his conferences in different cities. Since then, I have shared this message at every opportunity.
I am eternally grateful to Jesus Christ for what He did for me at the Cross, and for Bob George, for spreading the radical, true message of the Gospel.
July 2, 2018
I will forever miss Bob George. He is the man who introduced me to the endless love and grace of God. After many years as a legalistic Christian I stumbled across Bob on the radio. I was drawn to his sincere love of God, fellow believers and even non-believers. Over the next few years I began to listen to him on the radio quite regularly. Then in the 90's my mother and I attended a Classic Christianity Conference in Atlanta, Ga. At the end of the conference I can remember telling my mother, this is good news! For the next few years I read all of Bob's book, sometimes more than once. I began buying them in groups of five or ten and giving them out at the Spirit led me. Bob's teaching on the love of God has changed many lives, especially mine. Since those days I have continued to study and today I lead classes and on occasion get to talk to groups about God's love. Thank you again BOB GEORGE for showing me the real Jesus Christ.

The first time we heard the Grace message was through Bob George on People to People (almost 20 years ago)!!!
We would listen to Bob's tapes every evening; it changed our lives!! Thank you Amy for loving Bob and standing by your man through it all! Praise Jesus for you and your family! We love you!
June 21, 2018
Dearest Amy and family,
I am thanking Jesus for sweetly tending to each of you and filling your hearts and thoughts with peace at this amazingly bittersweet time. I am so deeply saddened with Bob's passing and I send a warm hug to each of you.
Bob George. That Bob George!!! What a guy! Oh, how grateful I am that God put Bob and People To People in my life in 2002. I had no idea what I was missing until I began to learn truth and was set free! Oh, how I long for those Classic Christianity Conference days. They were some of the very best days of my life! Priceless!!!
Because Jesus turned on my truck radio to let me find PTP live radio show, I have been wonderfully blessed with some precious friends/brothers and sisters in Christ from the conferences and Metro.
So here's to Bob who could really express truth about our Lord Jesus!!! He was, no doubt, one of a kind and will be sorely missed until we join him in heaven. Oh, and thanks to Bob, I know I am a new creation and I am flying like a butterfly!
June 20, 2018
Condolences to the extended George family for your earthly loss. Praises to our Lord for His perfect timing however; I can imagine Bob's frustration in his last years at not being able to communicate as he so profoundly did over his earthly ministry.
We founded a ministry, Joy of the Lord in the San Jose, CA region in 1991. It is a Christ-centered recovery entity and was birthed in a home out of a desire to blend the truth of the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the unbelievable outreach He started in the rooms of 12 step recovery. A brother in Christ introduced me to Classic Christianity and the People to People ministry/radio program. It has since radically change my life and many others over more than 27 years of weekly gatherings.
We developed the mantra of 'Crucifying the Confusion', as a way of introducing some very wounded people who crawl into the rooms of the more than 200 12 step recovery programs in existence today. For God so loved the world...
The introduction to the truth of being a New Covenant family as the result of the completed work of Christ, and being filled with resurrection life has literally touched thousands. Praise God!
"Lord Jesus, thank you for the creative work you did in Bob's life. His earthly influence has touched so many. Thank you for sharing him with us. We are so grateful to you."
Because of Jesus... Don Zonic

Amy, Bob and Debbie,
I'm very sorry for your loss. Bob had such a large personality and I know how much you all will miss him. His love for the Lord was so apparent and I know it gives you all such great joy and peace knowing that he is with Jesus praising God and possibly holding court and teaching classes! I say that lovingly because I know that was his great passion to spread the word. Amy, you are an inspiration to any who know you and have seen your love and devotion to Bob all these years. I am so grateful for your influence on my own walk with Jesus. My prayer is that God will give you all peace and comfort and companionship during this difficult time. XO

Dear Amy and Family, Thoughts are with you all . My wife Susan and I Both attended your conferences. Shared Bobs message Jesus Has Risen and Amy , I shard how your Dad received Christ . He said that he also had no dought that he received Christ , this all took place shortly before he passed from ALS . Thank you all for being available to the Living Christ .
June 15, 2018
Dearest Amy and family, it's never easy to say good by, and the passing of loved ones seems so final,
but we know it's only the temporal waiting for the eternal. I was introduce to Bob's early radio ministry
by James Mitchell and Chuck Wray my co-workers at Campbell Taggart, they would pray for me daring
their work break while I enjoyed coffee and friends at break.
Bob was so passionate about the truth of scripture in context, I had never heard teaching like that. My
wife Lisa and I where still attending a denominational church on Sunday and on Thuesday evening a bible
study with Bob and his great staff. After the study I ask Bob what am I not understanding about God's law
and God's grace. Bob looked me in eye and said Larry what are you trusting in for salvation your ability to
keep the law or what Jesus did on the cross when He said IT IS FINISHED! From that moment on the pride
of Larry got set aside to come to Life in Christ. I have been so blessed to meet many like-minded believers
thru the People to People Ministries, which was bless by God's spirit thru Bob. Bob truly had a gift of
teaching with a passion to share the love of Christ with all. I truly loved Bob and all the staff what a beautiful
time was had by all.
Love to you and all the family.

Through the ministry of Bob George, especially his books, I came to have a deeper understanding of the grace of God and the security that comes from knowing it's not about anything I can do but it's all about what He's already done for us. For this I am eternally grateful:)
June 12, 2018
I’m so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing.
I hope you & the family and mom are doing okay through this difficult time. We are praying for you guys and that the God of Comfort will comfort you during this difficult time. My heart is sadden by this news. ; (
Your dad was Great!! He changed my life and my relationship with God. There are no words to describe my gratitude for what your Dad has done. He will be greatly missed!! Tell your mom we said thanks for sharing him with us and all the People to People family over the years, again I appreciate it more than you can ever know.
I loved the tribute video, it was Great!

On Sept 12, 1990 , Bob George married me & my husband Bob. I had attended one of the Descipleship Counseling Conferences where Bob George trained me, mentored me & taught me more about scripture than I had ever learned from anyone. I was fortunate enough to be able to counsel with people who came to the People to People office, which, at the time, was located behind the Cooper Aerobic Center on Preston Rd. I also took calls that Bob would let me handle off air on his radio program. My life was changed after hearing Bob George on the radio. His message of Grace set me free from the cycle of 'sin and death' that Paul talked about. I have given the Depression series to literally dozens of people. To Amy, Debbie & Bob, jr : Thank you for sharing your husband and dad with us for so many years. We loved him more than I can say. He is now absent from the body & present with the Lord. We will all be there to join him one beautiful day. Sending love to all the George family, Bob & Sharon Diana

Bob led me to the Lord,Jesus in 1989 over radio. For the first time,I had hope with regard to my destiny.My life was changed forever thru my encounter with the Living God. Our regards to Bob's family thru their loss of Bob,but we will see him again!!!
June 8, 2018
I will always be grateful to Bob who help me to see the truth that would set me free. I knew about some truth, as Bob had said when the Son sets you free you will be free indeed is what God had started in my heart from the beginning.
As a friend in Christ had told me to listen to this program that this man knew how to explain the word of God better in terms that I could understand.
I bought the book Classic Christianity change my life over night, I saw Jesus walking beside me with my old body and this young child beside me. Jesus was talking to the young child beside me, which was myself as He sees each of us his children.
I knew that God had started something in me which Bob showed me at another time when I had seen him in Vancouver Canada.
It was so powerful of hearing the gospel in clarity of the New Covenant and meeting Bob and Amy that day was just so wonderful to see the love of Christ in both of them was shown that God was please with what He had started in Bob to complete His perfect work is for all of us that are in Christ Jesus.
I will see you later. God looks forward to bring us all home to be with Him forever. As Amy says "Goodbye is not forever". Your brother in Christ Jesus--Mike Fournier

It was summer 1985 and through the static I heard a man speaking to me through my radio from 1440 AM out of Orlando. Every day I had to listen. Could it be true? If grace was a wooden platform and there was a crack in the wood, I was certain I had fallen through it. Day after day I listened. The man told me to check out what he was saying with scripture, I listened more. Over time, I felt a healing balm flow over my soul. I finally got it. It went from my head to my heart. There was no condemnation for me. None. That summer changed my life forever. The man on the radio was Bob George. And I am forever grateful.
June 8, 2018
There are literally no words or method of calculation that can actually measure the impact that Bob George had on millions of human beings. He rescued me from a prison of lifetime legalism, & lead me to authentic, classic Christianity. It has resulted in my duplicating the same experience w/ others, and all of us owe him a debt of gratitude that can never be paid. I’ll miss Bob, and the radio will never be the same.

We were happy to have seen Bob one last time a few months back—and thank him for how his ministry has profoundly helped us along, in this walk of grace through faith. He will always be remembered by us.
June 7, 2018
I first heard Bob on the radio, in 1996. At first I could not process the message he spoke of. After about a year, it took hold, and forever changed my life! I was blessed to visit Metro many times, and got my parents involved there! I was blessed to counsel with him, and also to hear his Last sermon, at Christmas - "Wise Men Still Seek Him". He was going to do a mini conference here in El Paso, a few months later, and I was So excited! Furthermore, because of Bob, and the way the Lord used him, some friends and I were able to start a New Covenant fellowship, in 2007, and preach Grace, and the New Covenant! I will Forever be grateful for Bob and Amy George, and the miraculous ways in which God used them in my life!!
June 7, 2018
Bob freed me from the chains of legalism, and taught me the joys of my Salvation.
I am forever Grateful.
June 7, 2018
I am thankful for your life. A life that God used to change a young man's heart to understand
God's unconditional love. I am the result of your ministry, changed by the Spirit of the living God! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to work along side of you in your ministry for 15 years. I am forever grateful. In this day and in many days to come I will remember you!
Your friend in Christ,

I listen to this day, over and over and over and over to Bob's messages. I was raised in church and legalism and I was in disbelief when I heard Bob's teaching which was good news. I had to check the bible to see that it actually said what Bob said it did and to my absolute shock it said what Bob said it said. This was the first time I had ever heard good news re God. Prior to Bob it was 24/7 non stop condemnation, confess, confess, confess, 1 John 1:9 over and over and over again. I am getting reprogrammed to this day and am eternally grateful for Bob going against what it seems like all the churches I had ever been in taught, which emphatically was not what the word of God taught.....however, until I heard Bob's shocking message on the radio I didn't realize there was actually good news in there. That my sins had been paid in full, that my debt with God did not need to be cleared every 10 seconds because it had been totally cleared at the cross unbeknownst to me.
I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo grateful for Bob and his teaching which seemed the polar opposite of everything I had ever heard in church . Sincerely Bob Pearson
June 6, 2018
My condolences to Bobs family.
I have had the privilege of reading all the messages sent to Bobs' family and have agreed with all of them.
I too began to understand Gods grace through Bobs People to People ministry. It has made such an impact on my life that I have never been the same again. Thank you Bob for being such a faithful servant to the Lord!!
I now continue to use his teaching in prison ministry and nothing gives me more joy than to share Gods unconditional love with them.
I also lead Bible studies sharing His truth with others.
May God bless you, at this time and bring you comfort knowing how many lives Bob George has touched!!
Together in Christ,
June 6, 2018
26 Years ago I began listening to a radio program called, “People to People”. I listened 4-5 times per week for 2 years. While I found Bob’s counsel to the callers to be intriguing, the reality of God’s grace somehow escaped my personal circumstances.
Then, during a time of brokenness, I suddenly NEEDED what Bob was saying to be true. Suddenly, my spiritual eyes were opened to the reality that God viewed me on the basis of my belief in Jesus AND NOT on the basis of my performance. It was this TRUTH that opened the floodgate of God’s Love for me and triggered a deep, thankful love in me – for Jesus!
For the last 25+ years I have been driven to teach and bring this TRUTH (and FREEDOM) to my family, church and friends. The Love of God compels me because the Love of God compelled Bob George.
Thank you, Bob George, for bringing to me (and my circle of family and friends) the GOOD NEWS of the NEW COVENANT. I am only one, of perhaps millions, that you helped experience God’s Love – In Jesus!
WHAT A LEGACY!!!
June 5, 2018
My husband, Mark, and I had the privilege of sitting at the feet of Bob George for many years. He was one of our greatest teachers, and we soaked up the life changing message of God’s unconditional love and acceptance, His grace and total forgiveness. We have been able to share this message throughout our 36 years of marriage with our daughters, friends, small life groups and Sunday School classes. There is no other message to share, and through Bob’s confident and practical teaching , not to mention his many books and Bible studies, we have seen lives changed and others realizing what true freedom in Christ is. Bob was like a second father to us, and we have been honored to know he and Amy and family. Bob has, and always will, hold a VERY special place in our hearts. Our love and prayers to you, Amy, Debbie, Bob, and families.
June 5, 2018
Thank you Bob George for the clarity of how the Christian life is to be lived. Your teaching and books were so instrumental in my coming to the end of my rope of legalism. Truly it is a Joy to have the assurance of faith that is in Christ Jesus.
We celebrate with you that you are no longer "sagging and baggin" but as complete as you can get.
To your family we are so sorry for your loss but are confident you will celebrate Bob's promotion.
Love in Christ

When Bob George started his ministry on the radio, I had just received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I thank God for Bob because I didn't have the chance to experience legalism. As soon as I heard something contradicting Gods grace I knew better.
My condolences to the family and at the same time rejoicing he's with our Lord God.
Thank you Bob.
June 5, 2018
Bob George brought the TRUTH concerning JESUS to our family and friends 20 yrs ago on KBRT in CA. Our lives were changed and we found through Bob's teaching of God's Word the unconditional love, acceptance and forgiveness of God.
It was our pleasure and privilege to have joined Bob and his amazing wife Amy at three of the People to People conferences. The fellowship was so special.
Our love and prayers go out for all the family and friends of our beloved brother in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
We are eternally grateful for Bob's ministry and faithfulness to God's message of grace for ALL
June 5, 2018
Found Bob half a lifetime ago, on the radio, where he confirmed in me the clarity of the NEW Covenant of the Gospel ... and set me free from the legalism of my upbringing. I will forever be grateful for his generosity and faithfulness of heart. He IS and will always be a precious member of the Church family God has made for us. What a blessing to have known him. Thank you, Bob.
June 5, 2018
Condolences to Amy and all the beautiful family. Bob was such an awesome gifted teacher. More than just teach he had a way of tearing down misconceptions, replacing them with truth and building a rock strong foundation that fills your life with love joy and peace that can never be shattered. He has helped so many people in my small circle and I believe he changed the face of Christianity around the world from legalism to simple trust and rest in Jesus. My fondest memories of my life are of listening to Bob late at night as he dished out giant nuggets of truth. He helped me immensely when I was feeling like a lost soul. I loved the way he could listen to people’s troubles and identify the error in their thinking and set them on a new path of faith hope and love, same as he did for me.
I cried when I heard of his passing on to glory and I will never forget this most awesome guy who has imparted such a beautiful gift to so many people.
The ministry of Bob and Amy together was so beautiful, it could melt the hardest of hearts . I wish Amy and all the family to have great peace and comfort as only the Lord can give. I love you all very much and it is great you keep Bob’s ministry going.
June 5, 2018
Thank you Bob!
I am forever grateful for your clarity and commitment to teaching me about the True Gospel and the message of God's grace! You were the messenger God used in my life to heal my heart and now I know you are at home with our precious Lord as He embraces you with His Love.
You ran a great race my dear precious friend!
I love you dearly and I am forever grateful!
May your family be surrounded by God's Love and the support of dear friends,
Grace and Peace (learned about from Bob),

We’ll miss you Dear Bro. So many terrific memories going back to IU in the 50’s & sharing our Christian Testimonies and some great times in Florida. Getting to know Amy was such a Blessing. You’ll be front row center in the Heavenly Choir for sure. God Bless dear friend. “Goodby is not Forever”. Jack

Dad and Mom, I am eternally indebted to you and the ministry that God gave you. Dad has been promoted to the arms of Christ. We will be with him as well. Sincere thanks to you both for being "sheep dogs pointing to the Shepherd".
June 5, 2018
I will forever be grateful for the ministry of Bob George. In October of 2000, I was confused and struggling with legalism. I had recently changed jobs and my supervisor at the time gave me a cassette tape of Bob’s message “ God’s solution to mans problem.” For the first time I fully understood that I was forgiven and that I had been trying to live a life that only Christ could live through me. Romans 5:10 has been embedded in me ever since. Bob’s ministry touch so many lives and I am certain when he stepped into eternity he heard, well done my faithful servant.
June 5, 2018
I can't really say I was saved until I heard this messenger of God convey the medium by which we are saved....grace. Held in the darkness of legalism, light began to permeate through Bob's radio program, listening intently as I fed the cows. As a result, I see so much separate into the "camps" of law and grace, from raising children to relating with people. His message crumbled the cold heartless towers of the law replacing them with a home filled with the colors of the rainbow. I'm forever grateful to you Lord, for the life of Bob and the life of Christ within him, which he taught to be enjoyed and drawn from within myself. No man has had as much influence in my Christianity as Bob and he is missed with a similar sorrow of losing a child.
June 5, 2018
What an honor to have served with you as your staff writer for five years. You taught me so much during that time, and I am forever grateful. You will be greatly missed, my brother, but I know you are in the arms of Jesus, the Lord and lover of your soul. Thank you, Bob, for your many years of faithful service that has affected untold lives. I will be praying for Amy, and your entire family, at this most difficult time. Rest now.
June 5, 2018
I was working in Denton , Allen , and all of those cities north of Dallas back in 1989 and so on . I lived in Terrell , Tx. at the time and had a lot of travel time . One afternoon I was flipping through the radio stations and happened to land on Classic Christianity . I listened for a while , and said t' that is not what the Bible says '. The speaker ( Bob George ) said , " Don't take my word for it , read it yourself " . So when I got home , I did !
( I had been in church and a Christian for many years at this point ! )
In fact , I reread it for the next week . The first couple of times I read it , i said ' you could 'make ' the Bible say that ! Then one time i read it ,,god opened my eyes and heart and told me ' THAT ' is what the Bible says.
Thanks to Bob George , my walk with the Lord has not been the same . He ( the Lord ) has given me a deeper and clearer understanding of His Word !
I can't really express my gratitude for the in sight that Bob George has shown me ! I have meet him several times , and even attended Metro Bible Fellowship when they me on Spring Valley. I even went to Rosemeade several times .
It is with a regretful heart that I learn of his passing , though , I feel confident of his destination .
" To be absent from the body , is to be present with the lord " .
On fine day we'll meet in Glory !
Praise God !
June 4, 2018
I know it is never easy to lose a loved one. I pray you are comforted by the same grace that Bob always proclaimed. Please know the impact that Bob had on me and many of my friends was profound. The transforming power of truth of the Chrit life in us and through us is unequaled. And Bob participated with His Abba Father proclaiming Christ in us. I can think of no greater achievement in life than to know your Savior and telling others they can know Him also. I have so many memories, but I can sum it up with this. Bob is my brother in Christ, and my brother always said Christ in me was my hope of glory. Praise God for this man and all of the family that worked with him and supported him, and prayed for him, and loved him.
We all grieve the loss of our brother because we don't want him to go, yet we want him to go home. It is bittersweet, but Bob's gain is immeasurable seeing our Savior clearly and face to face.
June 4, 2018
Oh what a precious child of God Mr. George was! When I was saved 20 years ago, I wasn't sure how to live the Christian life. But God, in His wonderful mercy and grace, put Bob's book "Classic Christianity" in my hands. Mr. George's own testimony, gave me such insight into what the New Covenant means to believers, and how the "finished work of the cross" assures us of God's unconditional love and forgiveness of sins. All sins! Yes,the love of God leads us to obedience! Bob never said we wouldn't suffer or be disciplined by the Father. He always pointed to the power of the Holy Spirit, to show us how to live a godly life. "Go to the Word, don't believe me", he would say. Thank you Pastor Bob, you will always be in my heart. Blessings and love to the family!
June 4, 2018
I am deeply saddened by this news. I remember first hearing Bob speak on the radio in the 80's and my mind could not comprehend the message I was hearing, but my spirit was awakened to the truth of the Gospel...this was my first step on my journey into receiving the complete forgiveness and true life of Christ within me. I also attended a week-long, life-changing conference at Sandy Cove in Maryland. I will be forever grateful( and I do mean forever!) I am praying for his family during this heartbreaking time.
June 4, 2018
Bob, your faithful explanation of the Gospel through Hebrews 10 set my husband and myself free. Your visit to Fresno, CA in 1991 made us feel "born again again". Your earthly life is over...but your heavenly life has just begun. Rest in peace good and faithful servant.
June 4, 2018
His writings helped guide me to begin my journey to Grace! As a pastor, I am so glad I found this truth. Thank you Bob George!
June 4, 2018
I am so deeply saddened Amy, Debbie, Bob and families to learn of this terrible loss! I know that you are all aware that Bob is in the presence of our Lord and Saviour (2Cor5:8), and that we’ll see him again soon, but I am also deeply aware of your feelings of loss. My sincerest sympathies to you all! Bob was an amazing gift to this generation with his teachings of God’s Grace. I can truly say that Bob has been one of the most tremendous and influential people in my 53 years. Ever since I bought his book, Classic Christianity, four years ago…at a second-hand store owned and operated (ironically) by Seventh-day Adventists. Sadly, I never had the privilege of meeting this precious person. But Bob made the finality of the cross and the reality of the resurrection a reality in my life, and I continue to listen and learn (almost daily) the truths in God’s Word through his online Bible studies. Thank you to all involved in keeping Bob’s ministry on the air and online. He was our “Paul”, and has influenced and affected so very many people with his precise and accurate teaching! I am so thankful for him, for the life he lived, and for the passion and desire he had to spread the Truth to the world. I now look forward to meeting him in heaven.
June 4, 2018
Thanks much Bob for the knowledge and understanding. I am thankful for your Radio program in the nineties. You are still having an effect on me - just the other day I listened to one of Bob's Friday teaching editions on the Reality of the Resurrection.
My thoughts and prayers and best wishes for the Family. Special thanks to Debbie for picking up the ball and promoting Bob's teachings even today.
June 4, 2018
My wife and I thank the Lord often for Bob and the truth and meaning of God's Word He shared with us
since 1995 or so. The Lord showed me with a yes and amen that what i was learning is truth. This
truth was also conveyed to my pastor and he said our talks ,discussion, meetings was ordained by God.
Just a month ago we visited friends out of state and introduced them to the teaching on the website. They said
they listen now daily are being blessed very much. Bob's teaching has impacted my life and I will be
eternally grateful for him and his ministry . My prayers for Amy and family Thank you Bob

June 4, 2018
My deepest sympathy to Amy, Debby, Bob and family. It was through my sister, Deborah, introducing me to Bob’s radio program that I first wrote to the ministry and what a difference it made in my life. Not only did I hear Bob’s message of God’s love and grace, but through my first email to the ministry God sent Edward Hecht into my life to love me and eventually marry me. In my heart I see Bob and Ed worshipping our LORD together just as they had for so many years. Two men who loved our LORD and each other and loved to tell others about His love and grace. I still pass out the Born Free tracts as Ed always did (if you look closely you can see them in his shirt pocket, in this last picture of us taken about 6 weeks before his homegoing).
My love and prayers are with you,
June 4, 2018
Thank you Bob George for sharing the love and grace of Jesus Christ in a way that was life changing. You would say, "Don't thank me, but thank Jesus." Well, then thanks for being that open vessel. Thank the Lord that Paula and I had the opportunity to attend a couple PTP conferences and to meet you and Amy. Your home with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! In Christ-Kevin & Paula Baylor
June 4, 2018
Bob George will be missed here on this earth! God blessed him to share the truth of God's word, like none other. And I'm thankful that he was able to pass that on to folks like Bob Christopher and many others, to continue proclaiming The Truth. He was and will always be MY modern day Paul, and I know for so many other's as well. He radically changed my life, and the course of my family, when 30 yrs ago I heard him say on the radio, " In and through Christ, you have been reconciled to God and He is no longer counting your sins against you". I had never heard that before in my life and wanted to know more. I am free in Christ today, able to receive God's love and love others because of Bob. I've had an eternal joy and hope for 30 yrs that cannot be moved because of the truth of God, that Bob so simply shared. He was about as subtle as a meat clever at times, as he exposed scripture taken out of context. He always said, "don't believe me, get in the word and read it for yourself!" I am eternally grateful that God brought Bob into my life to show me that the opposite of truth is error, and that through all his books and CD's, I can continue to grow in God's truth! I'm thankful that we will be reunited someday with Bob, because as his precious wife Amy reminds us "goodbye's are not forever".
June 4, 2018
I first heard the truth about Jesus Christ from Bob George. The truth about total forgiveness and Jesus Christ living His resurrected miraculous love life in and through me. Also His New Covenant and His Grace. Thank you Bob for showing me the truth that is in the better covenant of Jesus Christ. I rejoice that you are joyous now in seeing Christ and living with Him forever.

I thank God for Bob George and the message of grace and love that he preached. My prayers for Amy and all his family. A life well lived!
June 4, 2018
This man is almost singlehandedly responsible for me coming to know Christ personally if it wasn't for the holy spirit. I know he was used by God to save me.
I had never met another Christian until after being born again. His program people to people spoke into my life like a bull horn in the summer of 2006 and most of 2007. In Sep of 2007 he convinced me that i needed Jesus to live inside of me to be made whole again and to truly fix the God shaped hole in all our hearts. You could say when I was done listening to this man preach grace,I was full . And he went on many many more times over the years filling me with the knowledge of God's grace. Thank you Lord for having this man ready and willing to speak into my life when he did. It literally meant life and death to me. May God comfort his family during this process and remind them that he has received an inheritance fit for a million kings!

Bob made the biggest difference in my faith in 1998, when I heard him on the radio driving around on my lunch break.
After that he taught me what real Grace is and how to rely on the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. We are
so grateful to him and Amy for the love, guidance and continued teaching all these years.
Miss him, but know he is home where he belongs.

To Amy, Debbie, Bobby, and your entire family, please know you have our heart felt sympathy for the loss of Bob. You are in our prayers, daily. We know that Bob is home with the Lord. So, Well done our brother Bob.
Back in 1998, while working as a field technician for a forklift company, I heard Bob George on the radio. Being in and out of my van and not being able to get all the details of where the broadcast is coming from, I heard enough for Bob to lead someone to Christ on the first broadcast.
The following day, another soul lead to Christ, along with some very good calls & answers.
The third day was teaching. What a jewel that was. I told my wife, Angie, "we have to find this man, he is saying what I have been reading, and that nobody is teaching"
We did find Bob & Amy, in a warehouse in Carrollton. We were settled into a bunch of chairs, and about 15 minutes into his teaching, we turned and looked at each other and nodded in approval. We were home!!
We were blessed each and every service, each book that we could get from Bob's writing. And each book sent us right to the bible scripture he taught from.
Classic Christianity by the "10 pack" became a staple for us. What a wonderful gift Bob had written for us, the we could give out to others.
I serve in a small east Texas bible church, and currently, our pastor is going through the book of Galatians, and the lessons that Bob recorded many years ago is helping him to expound and explain these wonderful scriptures of "freedom in Christ" Thank you Debbie, for the CDs.
We still listen to Bob on KAAM radio, and to KLTT radio, on computer broadcast. Let's keep this message of complete forgiveness going out to the world.
To all the George family, It has been such a pleasure to know and love all of you, and to walk in grace and love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Debbie & John, I praise the Lord for your constant effort to keep the ministry moving forward. Our love.

I continue to Thank God for the day I "accidently" found Bob George's voice on the radio.
June 4, 2018
I came across Bob George on the radio while trucking in California in 1995, through Bob’s Teachings I learned that in the Bible, God says that I am totally forgiven and how God loves me unconditionally. I will always be grateful and thankful to Bob for that. In a sea of confusing doctrines Bob’s Teachings are truly a beacon of light. I remember a time when the Christian buzz of the day was “to be more like Jesus” even though Bob never talked about being more like Jesus, I saw and witnessed many times how Jesus used Bob to communicate and show His love to countless of people who needed it. My condolences to the George family and rest assured we WILL all be reunited again someday .“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”
June 4, 2018
Bob and Amy have been a huge part of my husband and my marriage. Just when another church was trying to tell us to separate, Jesus brought Bob's message to us through a friend. We have been living through Grace for over 20 years. Bob's message saved us and our marriage. My husband respected and loved Bob so much that his Christmas present one year was to visit Bob and Amy in Texas! My husband still says it was the best Christmas present he has received and it was an honor to be with Bob in person. My prayers are with you all.
June 4, 2018
Classic Christianity and Bob turned my life around. What a blessing Bob has been to me. I use his teaching in prison ministry and pass the blessings along. So thankful for Bob and Amy.
June 4, 2018
I drove a truck on the Central Coast of California throughout the 90's where I discovered "People to People" on AM radio and listened daily for the next decade.
Until I heard the truth of God's grace through Bob's teachings I was on the "Christian Treadmill", as Bob would say. I struggled with the error so prevalent in the Church, that every time we fail in the flesh, fellowship with God is broken and only by confession and grovelling before God could we be forgiven and have fellowship reinstated. Bob's scriptural teaching made clear the truth of the finality of the cross and I was freed to live a joyous life in the Spirit of God. I have a great debt of gratitude for Bob George's ministry. Thanks to his teachings I know who I am in Christ Jesus and what God has made available to everyone. God's richest blessing on the George family and ongoing ministry. I can't wait to meet Bob in the clouds as we worship our Lord Jesus together.
June 4, 2018
I met Bob in 2007 when my future wife Paula asked if I would like to go to church with her, of course I said yes and am so thankful that God used her and Bob to reach me. I went the next week and sometime during his teaching on that particular Sunday, I was born again! I had gone to church most all my life but never heard the Good News of the Gospel taught by the spirit until I heard it from Bob. God opened my ears and used Bob to teach me the simplicity and power of the Gospel, and continued to use Bob to develop my maturity in Christ. I was fortunate to hear Bob before he became too ill to teach and even more fortunate to get to know Bob and Amy after he retired from the ministry. Regardless of his health or circumstances, nothing filled Bob with joy more than to preach the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We both shared a fondness for queso and chips too! Despite the sudden turn of events, we saw a great softening of both their hearts and we were fortunate to spend much more time with both of them these last few years. It was our greatest privilege for God to allow us to get to know both of them and to be of service to he and Amy. We sure enjoyed watching God direct their steps. We are also extremely thankful to God that we are still able to hear Bob's teaching on http://www.670kltt.com/. Absent with the body and present with the Lord for Brother Bob. Well done good and faithful servant - Well Done!
June 4, 2018
I don’t know if I just missed the message of grace in the three churches I grew up in or if it just wasn’t taught but, at any rate, by the time I was 25 I had resigned myself to a life-long miserable Christian life that would, one day, finally, be relieved by heaven. At 30, I was finally exposed to grace through People to People. Classic Christianity changed my life forever. The impact of knowing I am free in Christ, taught to me by Bob George, has impacted the Kingdom through my life and many ministry opportunities where I have been able to share Christ’s message of freedom to others. I am eternally grateful Way to go, Bob; one of the clearest and best communicators ai have ever known

My husband and I were dating at the time we got a hold of Classic Christianity. It changed my faith completely and made my husbands really come to life. We attended many conferences and always loved listening to Bob and how he made the message of Life really simple and clear. We will be forever grateful to Bob and Amy and everyone else that made this message spread. We continue to have a group in our home and pass Classic to everyone we know. We now have 4 kids and they hear the name Bob George all the time :) Love to you ,Amy and your family, and praise Jesus, Bob is now in the presence of Jesus our savior!

We will miss him so much. In 19 87 and in a strange sequence of events and almost against my will, I gave my life to Christ. I had no idea what that meant but I do know that I had been running from religion for so long. I decided that I should start learning what it meant to be a Christian so I started listening to Christian radio. One of the first programs I tune in to was people to people. The message Bob was teaching totally changed my life. I soon realized that it wasn't Bob's message but it was Jesus and that Bob just articulated it better than anyone I have ever heard before We attended metro until we moved away from Dallas and ever since we have been spreading that same message although I'm sure not quite as well. We have seen changed hearts every time we teach this good news. Well done Bob George. We love you, Amy, and the rest of the family Barry and Twiletta

It was a hot summer day in New Orleans after we had just been stationed there. I happened to turn the radio dial and heard a man talk about Jesus in a way I had never heard before. He’ said, “Jesus took your place of punishment so you could go free.”
Freedom was something I desperately needed. You see, I had had an abortion when I was 18. I had lived in torment for many years thinking I had committed the unpardonable sin. I grew up in church and knew the law, but what I didn’t know was God’s Grace. After listening for a couple of months, one day Bob said, “ you can’t believe what I’m saying, you have to go to the word of God for yourself. God will speak to you thru His word. “
I picked up the word of God for the first time in many years. My eyes fell on,
“God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind “ 2Tim.
All fear was removed that day, and I’ll be forever indebted to Bob (and Amy.). There’s no one like them in the whole world. Very special and forever in my heart and prayers.
I’m sad, yet rejoicing because Bob is now in the arms of his Savior and I know he heard, —“welcome home “
Prayers going up for Amy and family.

It was sometime in 1992 that Robin and I first began listening to Bob's broadcast. We had both been in Christ for over 25 years, but what we heard about our identity, and the absolute forgiveness we already had, but had not fully understood until then, set our life on a new path. We will forever be thankful for Bob's passion for unabashedly conveying the message of unequivocal Grace in Jesus Christ.
Among the treasures of our life, is the time we were privileged to spend with Bob and Amy in Glen Eyrie and in Dallas. Ours is one of many ministries spawned by their message. We will forever believe that God placed Bob in our path at precisely the right time, and we are so thankful that He did.
Amy will be in our prayers as she navigates this new chapter of her life, apart from Bob, but certainly not alone. As she so beautifully phrased it herself, Goodbye Is Not Forever.
What a Day of Rejoicing That Will Be!

Bob George was my hero. He led me and my whole family to Jesus Christ and I will ever be so grateful. I’ll never forget the day I heard on one of Bobs radio shows about a new life in Christ. To this day I give out Classic Christianity to whoever seems ready for it and listen to the archived shows on his website.
To Amy, Debbie and family please accept our heart felt condolences. We know how much you will miss him. The good news is that Bob has his new spiritual body and we will see him again.

Amy, so sorry for your and the kids loss. Love you guys. Bob was the most influential person in my life. He helped me see God’s unconditional love and grace in and through Christ Jesus. Life is short...see you soon, Bob.

I'm so sad!!!
I was thinking about Bob just a few days ago.
I'm currently in the ER with another family member...
So we completely understand...
We heard People to a People 1992.
I also left a testimonial on your site a few years back.
You guys have been to us what the Apostle Paul was to the people back then.
I thank God for you.
We are ETERNALLY greatful.
Love, Lee/Joy Deaver

While accompanying my wife to a used book store around 1990 I came upon a little book called Classic Christianity in the religious section. This book literally changed my spiritual life. Having been raised in legalistic religion since I was young, I couldn't believe the freedom in Christ that grace affords all who seek a relationship with the Father. Bob had a way of clearly expressing the true gospel message that those of us who were in the bondage of religion could see Christ as He is and the life that He gives. Bob's love for Jesus was evident in the messages he brought and the calls he took on the radio. So many people I know have been set free from hearing the grace message expounded by Bob and his clear understanding of the scriptures. He will surely be missed but I rejoice that he dances in the presence of the his Savior, Jesus Christ. May God bless and comfort Amy and Debbie and all those thousand of lives Bob touched.

I became a Christ follower 27 years ago but soon became overwhelmed with the "do do Christian list" I remember telling my husband that "if this is Christianity, I want off the bus!" We began to listen to Classic Christianity on the radio and heard the Grace of God being taught...Wow! We even flew to California for one of Bob's conferences and our walk with the Lord was forever changed. Bob's teaching was simple and straight forward and I, as a new Christian, allowed the Truth to set me free from my "do do" list and really fall in love with Jesus and His finished work on the cross. We absolutely love Bob and Amy and have most of his books and read them again and again. We are forever grateful for his radio ministry and how his teaching about God's unconditional love and Grace changed our lives.
Blessings to your whole family,

I remember one time Bob telling a nervous caller on his radio call in show, "there's no reason to be nervous, your just talking with friends." Bob truly meant that! The first time my wife and I attended the church Bob pastored, he visited with us like we were best friends! Bob didn't know it, but he was already one of my best friends even though I had never met him prior, but only listened to him on the radio. Bob's teachings have carried over to my friends and family since the first time I heard him in 1993, and will continue for the entirety of my life because as Bob often said, it is truth that will set you free, "and if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" John 8:36. I thank the Lord often for Bob and his gift of proclaiming God's word!

Bob had a handle on the grace of God like no one else. He had a way of sharing Truth that helped so many of us become free from our shackles. I will always keep Bob in my heart and remember how much I owe him for leading me back to the simplicity of Christianity and the freedom of the life I now live in our Jesus.
I would like Amy, Debbie and Bob and your families to know we are thinking of you all. We live in a small market town in Devon, England and I thought it would bring you comfort to you to know how much Bob is thought of all the way around the world.
Two days ago I was listening to Bob reading Classic Christianity on audiobook and thought how wonderful it was that all these years later the ripples of acceptance and grace are continuing to reach out.
With all our love...

I am convinced that my message will be one of many like messages. My first decision to walk an isle seeking salvation was at an evangelistic crusade. I was not sure of what I did or knew, other than my knowing I did not want to go to hell. I walked the isle at another evangelistic crusade just to make sure I prayed the right prayer and was truly saved, and even wrote the date in my bible for future reference. As I attended a fundamental Baptist Church and failed to live a righteous life, I walked the isle more times just to make sure I did not lose fellowship with Jesus. As an adult knowing that I had a call to ministry, I could never accept it as I still struggled to work for God's love. Then I heard Bob George on the radio. It was the first time I truly heard the whole gospel and understood the unconditional love and acceptance of God through the finished work of Jesus Christ. I did accept a call to ministry and have taught many others that "there is nothing I had to do to earn my salvation, nothing I had to do to keep my salvation, and there is no way I can lose my salvation", because "God gave his for us, so He could give His life to us, so He could live His life through us". I praise God for His working in and through Bob George to impact my walk of faith and ongoing ministry. I pray the Lord will give peace and comfort to Bob's family, friends and many followers. I will look forward to meeting him someday in heaven.
