I have finished reading one of his books for the third time. His books were like that, the more you read the more you get out of them. His intellect is unmatched in his genre of Christian writing. His topics of prophecy and The Supernatural Worldview were topics most "Clergy " wouldn't touch. We are at a crisis point of having church leaders not understanding what is really going on in the last days. Hop in your car on any Sunday and go to almost any Evagelical church. You will here a salvation sermon and the same for week after week. Not meat is being taught. Your average Christian couldn't defend their fath to a kid. Rows of people waiting for a rapture that's never going to happen. Thank you Mr. Putnam for giving it a shot. Now you have all the answers. Most of the rest will sit on the pew waiting until time to leave so they can watch the pagan football game.

He is blessed by our Lord and savior in Heaven. He will be missed here on Earth, but has conquered it. Amen.

I can't believe that I just found out today of Chris' passing. I totally admired and respected work with Tom Horn and I was always facinated when Chris would discuss and explain the findings of research regarding the project he had or was working on. Of course, the news of his passing is not all bad. In fact, I rejoice for him that he is now in the presence of Jesus and his earthly struggles are over!!

He's a mighty man of God who will be missed dearly this side of heaven. My condolences to his family and community, for I am sure that he was a light shining in a dark place wherever he was.

I am deeply sorry to see Cris go. I thoroughly respected his research information and in-depth Biblical knowledge. He had a way of tying together disparate pieces of information and making sense of the conclusions.

What a beautiful man who really loves God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, I never met him but saw his youtube videos from I know he is with Jesus and we will see him shortly. Love, Anna Maples

Just learned of Chris' passing. He was truly inspirational to watch and I have learned so much from him. He completed the race and is now at home with the Lord. Weeping may come for a night but joy comes in the morning. We will see Chris again so for right now we'll just say "save us a seat". May our Lord continue to strengthen his family.
