Born in 1926, David Charles Haddon Hunt enjoyed the advantages of a godly upbringing and placed his trust in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord in his early teens.
As a young man, he served in the military toward the end of World War II. Afterward, he attended UCLA and received a degree in mathematics. It was during that time that he met the love of his life, Ruth Klassen. In 1950, they were married, and since both loved the outdoors, they enjoyed a beautiful honeymoon hiking in the High Sierrasâperfect for two young people madly in love and with very little money to their name. Marriage was soon followed by the birth of two sons and two daughters. Ruth was a busy mother and also a gifted writer herself. She had a tremendous interest in and knowledge of history, a gift that would help Dave further down the road. Daveâs own career path led him into a position as a CPA/management consultant...
Dave had such a fine record on exposing the cults and the Romish Church, and was a good dispensationalist besides that he went to speak at many Calvinistic churches, including Indian Hills Community Church.
Dave other errors before he came out of the closet, as one petal Calvinist, and a four-petal Arminian. However, limited atonement is of course wrong, q.v., Calvinism & Arminanism Contrasted. Dave lost much of his support with his anti-Calvinism.
Whilst Dave Hunt wrote much that was very good, it always saddened me that a man with such a 'Berean Call' and the middle names 'Charles Haddon' decided late in his life to make such a poor contribution to the defence of the faith by misrepresenting C H Spurgeon.

'On page 19 of your book, Dave, you make the assertion that Charles Spurgeon âunequivocallyâ denied particular redemption (limited atonement). Every single Calvinist who has done any meaningful reading in Spurgeon will be forced to immediately dismiss you as a very poor researcher on the basis of this statement' Blinded By Tradition: An Open Letter to Dave Hunt here
