    Soriano was known as his signature method of "Bible Expositions" in his radio and television program "Ang Dating Daan" (The Old Path), which started airing on radio in 1980.

    With his style of preaching, he received numerous death threats and libel cases. He has since used this opportunity to preach in other countries.

    According to MCGI, the show currently airs in 73 countries worldwide including the United States, Brazil, Uruguay, Portugal, Spain, India and South Africa.

    "Now, Bro. Eli is more than 70 years old. And yet, he still manages to conduct more or less 10 Bible Expositions in four different languages a week; crossing states, countries, and time zones, be it physically or via satellite points or internet packets," a post from his website said.

    Soriano was born in Pasay City in 1947 and grew up in Pampanga.

    He was diagnosed with emphysema and congenital heart disease at an early age but able to conquer adversity.
