Grant Reid Jeffrey (October 5, 1948 – May 11, 2012) was a Canadian Bible teacher of Bible prophecy/eschatology and biblical archaeology and a proponent of dispensational evangelical Christianity.[1] Jeffrey served as the chairman of Frontier Research Publications[2] for more than 20 years. His books (variously published by WaterBrook Press,[3] Bantam Books, HarperCollins, Zondervan, Word and Tyndale House) have sold more than 7 million copies and have been printed in 24 languages.[4] Jeffrey was working on a new book called One Nation Under Attack (WaterBrook Press, January 2013), at the time of his death.[5] He also appeared on television and radio shows, particularly on Christian programs and also had been invited to speak to groups around the globe.[6]

In 1982, Jeffrey earned a Chartered Life Underwriter Certification from the University of Toronto's Extension Program. He later received his Master's Degree and Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from Louisiana Baptist University.[2]

In 1999, Jeffrey's book, The Millennium Meltdown, reached #2 on the Publishers Weekly bestseller list for religious paperbacks.[7] In 2000, his novel By Dawn's Early Light, which he co-wrote with Angela Hunt, won the Christy Award for futuristic Christian fiction.[8]

In 2007, Trinity Broadcasting Network began broadcasting, Bible Prophecy Revealed, a 30-minute weekly program hosted by Jeffrey.[9]

Grant Jeffrey died suddenly of a cardiac arrest on May 11, 2012, in Toronto, Canada.[10] He is survived by his wife, Kathleen Grant Jeffrey.
