About Dr Richard Kent
Dr Richard Kent is a retired medical doctor. He was born in 1946, and trained at the Middlesex Hospital in London. He qualified in 1969, at the age of 22. He met his wife, Val, a staff nurse in Casualty, soon after qualifying, and they have been a very happy couple ever since. They married in 1971, and have three daughters, Emma, Sarah, and Lucy. In 1973 Richard joined a very large medical practice with eight partners and 18,000 patients.
One of Richard’s patients was a 4 year-old boy who died with leukaemia. The little boy died whilst Richard was actually treating him at home. This greatly distressed the poor parents, and it greatly upset Richard as well.
Following this, Richard and Val were “seeking” for some meaning to life. In his job as a GP Richard was very familiar with death at all ages, and wanted to know the answer to the following three questions:
- Where do we all come from?
- Why are we here?
- Where do we go next?
Richard and Val found these questions very difficult question to answer! In the UK most people have no answers to these questions, and frequently do not even understand the questions!
Richard also found that many people were embarrassed by these questions! Richard’s first job as a General Practitioner was in Brighton and Hove, working in a Jewish practice. Richard is not Jewish, but he developed a great liking for the Jewish people. Richard and Val have visited Israel many times since, and also attend a church that supports Israel.
Richard had an interest in the history of the Second World War, and was familiar with the details of the Jewish Holocaust. Richard and Val recently visited Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland, and regularly visit Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem.
Richard was careful not make any personal judgement on the people responsible for the Holocaust. Richard did however come to the conclusion that there must be an evil force on this planet that caused people to inflict such suffering on others. The Bible refers to this spiritual entity as Satan, and Richard decided that Satan was very real. This lead to a detailed study of the Bible, and Richard and Val became born again Christians together in 1974.
Richard became interested in the research into after-death experiences by the American consultant cardiologist, Dr. Maurice Rawlings, who wrote the introduction to Richard’s first book The Final Frontier published in 1997. This interest was the beginning of Richard’s research into the experiences of clinically dead patients who were resuscitated, and reported near-death experiences. Richard is a co-author of two books The Final Frontier and Beyond The Final Frontier, which include a total of 51 true stories of patients who have died and met Jesus Christ. Many individuals in the books visited either Heaven or Hell. These books are both available free on this web site.
Richard retired from General practice in 1997. For the next 15 years Richard travelled as part time unpaid conference speaker, evangelist, Bible teacher and author. His wife, Mrs Val Kent, is a retired nurse, and works closely with Richard. They now live in a rented house near Winchester in the UK, close to other members of their family. Richard is now a member of King’s Community Church, Upper Northam Road, Hedge End, Hampshire, SO32 4BZ, UK, a large church with 750 members. Val gives separate regular Bible Studies mainly on the Hebrew understanding of the Scriptures, in various homes and churches.”
Richard used to regularly run the London Marathon, and other marathons, to raise money for various charities.
In 2011 Richard was nearly killed in a serious road traffic accident. Richard was cycling, and a car drove into the back of Richard’s bicycle at 50 mph, according to the police records! Very few people survive such an accident, according to several experts! Richard sustained 11 fractures, a head injury, a cardiac arrest (according to the ambulance records), a deep vein thrombosis, and pneumonia. Richard is grateful to the wonderful staff at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, and to the Lord, for saving his life! This did put Richard out of action for quite a long time! Richard’s family were absolutely wonderful! Richard learned how important forgiveness is, and holds no unforgiveness whatever to the driver of the car, who Richard has never met! Richard is very grateful to the driver of the car, who kindly stopped and phoned 999. A helicopter and an ambulance came, and the road was closed for 4 hours. In fact, Richard learned a great deal through this experience!
I retired from General Practice at the age of 50. For many years I worked as an evangelist with churches in 27 countries all over the world, in the UK, the Caribbean, USA, Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, India , Pakistan, and ending up in Death Row in the Philippines, a ministry started by Corrie Ten Boom in 1946
Regular TV Presenter on Revelation TV Since 2009
In 2009 I became a regular TV presenter on Revelation TV, with my two lovely co-presenters, Dr Laura Richardson and Birgit Whelan.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity to share some of the important truths concerning Creation, Evolution, DNA, our Human Bodies, Plants, Birds, Animals, Carbon Dating, Biblical Archaeology, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, Irreducible Complexity, the Universe, the Bible, the Divine Ratio, Miracles, Archaeology, Abortion, Near Death Experiences, Our Resurrection Bodies, Evangelism, Money, and much else besides!
Essential Information for Evangelists in an Atheist World
When speaking to atheists around the world, any new evangelist will probably need the free information shared on this website! Too many people, it seems to me, simply believe everything that the evolutionists teach in schools and universities as fact! Their information is very easily countered with scientific fact about Irreducible Complexity in our bodies, and the universe in which we live.
In other words, GOD has been removed from much of today’s society, and this needs to change!
I do realise that the shorter 5 minute videos, which I have called Fun Facts, are much more popular and more easily digested than the much longer programmes produced on Revelation TV. I am therefore busy breaking down all of the longer programmes into shorter 5 minute Fun Fact videos!
