Reinhard Bonnke (born 19 April 1940 Königsberg, East Prussia) is a German charismatic Christian evangelist. According to his evangelistic organization, Christ for All Nations (CfAN), his crusades have resulted in the conversions of over 10 million people to Christianity between 1995 and 2000, with a further 38 million from 2001 to 2005 and that 55 million people filled out decision cards ‘to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour’ from 2000 to 2009.

During a Reinhard Bonnke crusade in December 2001 at the Grace of God Mission Church in Onitsha, Nigeria, a local pastor was allegedly raised from the dead. The authenticity of this claim has been questioned, especially the fact whether the subject was injected with embalming fluid or not.

Bonnke has written many books and claims 178 million copies printed in 158 different languages have been sold or provided at no charge. In the early 1990s Bonnke, who had uttered a number of prophecies of a major world revival which would start in the United Kingdom, was involved in an initiative which aimed to reverse the decline in church attendances there. This involved the distribution of millions of copies of a booklet he had written called Minus to Plus to homes throughout the country, which was hoped to win 250,000 converts. However, only 20,000 were ‘won over’, and these were mostly those returning to the faith rather than coming to it for the first time. Church attendance in the United Kingdom continued to decline.

He was reportedly born-again at the age of 9. He studied at The Bible College of Wales in Swansea and pastored in Germany for seven years. He began his ministry in Africa, with which he is principally identified, preaching in Lesotho in 1967. He has subsequently held large evangelical meetings across the continent.

>Bonnke’s visit to Kano in Nigeria in 1991 was marred by the outbreak of riots in the city, as Muslims protested over uncomplimentary remarks he made about Islam in the city of Kaduna on his way to Kano.
