Not what men PLAN - but what GOD SAYS! Here, in understandable language, is a quick SUMMARY of all prophecy - the neglected one-third of your Bible - made PLAIN. It's truly startling! ....

A Tale Of Two Prophets
The accent in this booklet is on Moses because his true purpose and personality are not visible in most "Christian" literature. Our style of presentation is not pedantic, argumentative or coldly factual, but rather, personal, intimate­ an attempt to give human warmth and feeling. In that concept, some quotes are not intended to represent "Scripture"-adequate documentation of ac ...

Did the MIRACLE OF FLIGHT come from frayed, loosely hanging FISH SCALES? Did the myriads of birds EVOLVE from ungainly, hulking caymans and crocodiles? Evolutionists say they did. Reason, logic, common sense, TRUE science and the Great Creator God say they DIDN'T! Here's the PROOF! ....
A Theory For The Birds


A True History Of The True Church
Is Christ divided? There are more than 250 major denominations in America alone -- and other hundreds of little groups and sects. WHY? When did this confusion originate? How much do you really know about the TRUE CHURCH? Where has it been? Have you supposed it was re-established at the Protestant Reformation? IT WAS NOT! You will be ASTONISHED to see the true history of GOD'S Church. This true his ....

Did DOLPHINS and whales EVOLVE? Evolution says fish grew lungs and slithered ashore. Then, claims evolution, many RETURNED to the sea, DISCARDED their legs, changed them into flippers, "evolved" a built-in grin and became dolphins and whales. DID THEY, REALLY? ....
A WHALE of a TALE, or--

A World Held Captive
You live in a world of awesome progress, but paradoxically, of appalling evils. WHY? It's a world held captive, deceived into loving its captivity. Deliverance from kidnap in deception, human discontent, suffering and death hastens nearer. World peace, happiness and joy are just around the corner....
After Death ... then what?
Just what is death? Is there a resurrection? Do the dead know what the living are doing? Is suicide unforgivable? Where will you meet loved ones again? Why does God allow Christians to die? Does death ever come as punishment? What if one dies being unconverted? Is he lost forever? Here are the answers to these questions from God's inspired Word. DEATH is the enemy of man — and we all hate it ....

All About Water Baptism
IS WATER baptism essential to salvation? What about the "thief on the cross"? Was he saved without it? What is the proper form, or mode — sprinkling, pouring or immersion? Should babies and children be baptized? Suppose you were baptized by a minister you have since lost confidence in. Should you be baptized over again? Suppose you were baptized "in the name of the Father, and the Son ....

Answers From Genesis
THE first six chapters of Genesis present a brief sum­mary of vital high points of approximately the first 1650 years of mankind — from Adam's creation to just before Noah's Flood. In this basic summary of events, many details have been omitted. However, God saw to it that what we really needed to know was preserved for us today. Sufficient was recorded to show that mankind was instructed of God ....

Are We In The Last Days?
How can you know whether we are near "the end of the world"? Can we prove it? ARE we now in the biblically prophesied "time of the end"? President Reagan, of the United States, spoke of world conditions seemingly indicating we may be nearing "Armageddon." The atomic scientists some time ago set the doomsday clock one more minute forward from four to only three minutes ....


Are We Living In the Last Days?
"There have ALWAYS BEEN false prophets, wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilences and earthquakes ..." some will claim. "It's nothing new." How can you KNOW whether this really IS the end-time generation? Can you PROVE it?  YOU ARE living in the time of the end. But people have said that for centuries, haven't they? ....

This, truly, is one of the most incredible success stories of our time. There is a very significant reason! For it is the story of what the living God can do -- and has done through a very average human instrument, called and chosen by Him -- one whose eyes He opened to astonishing truth about the real cause of the troubles and evils heads of governments face, and the way to World Peace -- one He reduced to humble obedience, yielded in faith and dedicated to God's way! ....
Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong Volume 1

Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong Volume 2
THE "lean years" continued through 1938 and the succeeding decade. It was a constant struggle and hardship. Growth seemed so very slow. Yet, viewed today in retrospect, expansion has been consistently rapid. Occasional setbacks were discouraging. But the forging's ahead were far greater than the slips backward....

Come Help Humanity
Up to the present, we know, the whole created universe groans in all its parts as if in the pangs of childbirth, (Rom. 8:22). Humankind somehow senses that something is very wrong with this world today. The tragic symptoms are everywhere about us. Humanity is continually confronted with a growing multiplicity of problems: the specter and shadow of the Bomb, overpopulation, famine, pollution, crime ....
Coming A New Age!
If there's anything the world needs now, it's hope. Hope for the future — hope for a time of peace, prosperity and general spiritual enlightenment. But such hope escapes us in this world of war, crime, famine, environmental crisis, moral profligacy and political upheaval. Something is terribly wrong with this world. The future of man looks bleak indeed if man is to control his own future! ...

Did God Create a Devil?
IS THERE a Devil? Many people talk about the Devil and Satan. Others scoff and say it’s just superstition and imagination. But is there a Devil? The Bible pictures the whole world under the sway of an invisible Devil. Where did he come from? Did God create a Devil to tempt us and to lead us astray? Here are the answers from God’s Word ....

Do You Have An Immortal Soul?
Why should there be so much confusion about what man IS? What happens to a human at death? Does death separate an immortal soul from the body? Read the startling proof, answering these questions that have perplexed millions. THE ONLY sure thing about life, they say, is death and taxes. That’s a common saying — at least in America. To the average man on the street, death is a vague, far-off, unreal ....

Does God Exist?
Can the existence of God be scientifically proved? Where did the first LIFE come from? Can we know whether God possesses MIND power? LET'S FACE this question! Is it rational to believe in God? Is God merely a myth -- an invention of an ignorant, superstitious past? Many today assume this....

Does God Heal Today?
Is the day of miracles PAST? We read in the New Testament that when Jesus Christ was on earth 1900 years ago, He HEALED THE SICK. And it seems there are so MANY MORE sick today than there were then. Well, is the day of miracles past? WHAT ABOUT this thing we call divine healing? I've encountered scores of folks who say, "Well, I know God can HEAL today IF it's His will but HOW CAN WE KNOW ....

Easter Is Pagan!
WHY DO you believe the things you believe, do the things you do? The chances are you never stopped to ask yourself that question. You have been taught since childhood to accept Easter as the chief of the Christian holidays. You have supposed it is part of the true Christian religion to observe Lent, "Holy Week," "Good Friday," to buy hot-cross buns at the bakery, to have ....

Ending Your Financial Worries
What are YOU most concerned about? Is it the threat of hydrogen bomb WAR that can blast all human life from off this planet? Is it the race to conquer SPACE? MOST are concerned not about these issues but about making ends meet. THINK OF IT! In the industrial nations about 25% of parents are "farming out" their children so that both parents can work! WHY are most families ....

God's Sacred Calendar
HERE IS the true calendar for all mankind. Its principles go back to the very first chapter of the Bible, where the sun and the moon were appointed to be for signs, seasons, days and years (Gen. 1:14)....

Hippies, Hypocrisy And Happiness
The "Hippies" have emerged as a whole new subculture around the world. The drug-taking cult has rejected modern society, rebelled against the Establishment, and withdrawn to a psychedelic world of bizarre thrills. You need to know WHY the Hippies are the BAROMETER of a SICK, SICK SOCIETY! ....

How Often Should We Partake Of The Lord's Supper?
The "Lord's supper," like so many essential points of the original true doctrine, has fallen into the mire of erroneous tradition. But Jude exhorts us, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." Here is the real truth as to when and how often we should observe the "Lord's supper." ....

How To Have A Happy Marriage
How to Have a Happy Marriage. No matter where you live, there are certain basic principles that make — for marital happiness in any culture or society.

Why is the Bible the most misunderstood book in all history? The most twisted, distorted, maligned, misrepresented and lied-about book there is?

How to Study the Bible

How to Understand Prophecy
The major events that will headline tomorrow's news are already pre-recorded. About one third of the Bible is prophecy, and most prophetic passages apply NOW — to our time — the world in which we live. Yet Biblical prophecy is a complete mystery to millions. Why? Because certain vital keys are not understood. They have become lost ....


Human Nature Did God Create It?
Here is a bombshell of truth almost no one has understood. The world's evils are attributed to human nature. But are babies born with this selfish, evil nature? I OVERHEARD one say: Just look at that beautiful, sweet little baby — and to think it's filled with all that evil, despicable human nature!" But was it? Think of this paradox! How can it be explained? ....

Were all animals made clean? What about the unclean animals shown to Peter in a vision? Here is a straightforward Bible answer, giving the New Testament teaching. This subject is important to your health and well-being! AFTER THOUSANDS of years of human experience on earth, it seems there still is nothing people know less about than food. ....

Is God a Trinity?
Is God a Trinity or a family? Was Jesus Christ God, or merely a man? Was Jesus the born son of God, or only an adopted son? Is the Holy Spirit a person or the creative power of the Godhead? These questions about the nature of God are answered in this booklet. ....
Is Sex Sin?
IT SEEMS to make little difference that famine, starvation and disease lurk in India, or Pakistan; or that the United States of Europe nears reality; or that nuclear overkill means each human being has, specially reserved just for him, at least 150 tons of TNT in explosive equivalent. The main thing for many to think about — it seems — is sex! No matter the headlines of disaster....

Is There A Real Hell Fire?
A leading Protestant theologian remarked,... 'It is doubtful whether many educated Protestants today believe in "heaven" and "hell" as literal physical places..." Yet to many millions hell is frighteningly real! Is there a real hell, a real fire, a real torment — what does the Bible say? ....

Is This The End Time?
"There have ALWAYS BEEN false prophets, wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilences and earthquakes..." some will claim. "It's nothing new". How can you KNOW whether this really IS the end — time generation? Can you PROVE it? You ARE living in the time of the end. But people have said that for centuries, haven't they? Yes, they have. And, surprisingly, we say it again today....

Just What Do You Mean...Born Again?
Don't be too sure you know! Many professing Christians sincerely believe they have been "born again" — but do not understand what Jesus meant by those words. The true answer is not only surprising — it is startling! — THE MOST IMPORTANT truth you can know, here made SO PLAIN you will UNDERSTAND! ....

Just What Do You Mean...Conversion?
How many times have you heard non-Christians, judging one who professes Christ, say in disgust: "Well if that's Christianity, I don't want any of it!" How many judge GOD by the way professing Christians live? How many assume that one must live a perfect life, before he can become a Christian? How many say: "If I could give up smoking, I'd become a Christian." ....

Just What Do You Mean...Kingdom Of God?
Is it the CHURCH? Is it something "set up in the hearts of men"? Is it the British Empire? Is it "the good within you"? Is it "the Millennium"? Each of these is widely taught — yet none is right! The shocking TRUTH is here made PLAIN! WHY cannot the churches agree on what is the GOSPEL? Jesus Christ came preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God....

Lazarus And The Rich Man
DO SAVED mothers up in heaven see the writhing and hear the shrieks of their own lost children down in hell? Stop and think! Would you really want to spend eternity in a heaven where you would be forced to gaze constantly upon your own loved ones who were lost, hearing them frantically screaming to you for help you would be unable to give, watching incessantly their indescribable agony, as they are ....

Life After Death?
Do you have an IMMORTAL SOUL? Do the dead know what the living are doing? Does suicide "end it all"? Will you meet departed loved ones again? Did departed ones "pass away" to heaven or hell? WHY THIS MYSTERY about life after death? WHY so many beliefs of so many different religions? How can we know? Can we believe God? Adam and Eve didn't. Few believed Christ ....

Managing Your Personal Finances
MORE MONEY cries the average American family. "Look at these bills", "How can we ever get out of debt?" What a paradox! Americans earn more, and can buy more than ever before — yet have more financial headaches! But WHY? What is wrong? Why such worry over "making ends meet?" This booklet makes the answers plain. It pinpoints mistakes made in handling money ....

Never Before Understood

Why Humanity Cannot Solve Its Evils
WHY DO we lack the know-how to solve world troubles — or even problems between individuals? WHY?

New Facts About Marijuana
The use of MARIJUANA is soaring, skyrocketing! Never have so many "turned on" with drugs and "dropped out" of society. Never has there been such concern and confusion over an issue. But WHY? What are the REAL facts? Is marijuana harmful? Are there physical and psychological side effects? Does smoking marijuana lead to stronger drugs? What does it do to formation of personality ....

Our Awesome Universe
The grandeur and splendor of the universe has always challenged the mind of man. It taunts him with the unknown. Where did it all come from? Why does it exist? Is there any purpose behind it? Is our existence the result of intelligence or are we mere cosmic orphans adrift on the ocean of time and space? Many do not know. Yet answers are available. WHEN MAN looks up to the starry heavens on a clear ....

Pagan Holidays--or God's Holy Days--Which?
Does it make any difference which days we observe — or whether we keep them? Does the Bible establish whether we are to keep certain days holy to God? Were these days given to ancient Israel only? Are they binding today only on the Jewish people, while Christians are commanded to keep holidays such as Christmas? ....

Predestination Does the Bible Teach It?
Is your ultimate fate decided for you in advance? No subject has baffled, perplexed, and worried people more.

Seven Proofs of God's True Church

Jesus said, "I will build my church"! And He did build it! No one in the Christian world denies there is a true Church of which Jesus Christ is the Head somewhere on this earth right now!

The Bible Superstition or Authority? ...and can you prove it?
Why is the world's best selling book held in awe by some, in passive discredit by others, and understood by virtually none? WHY the Book of mystery nobody seems to know?

Have you ever PROVED whether, as the book itself purports, it is the authoritative Word of the Creator God? ....

The Crucifixion Was Not On Friday
This is Golgotha, the Place of the Skull, upon which Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, was crucified. The natural caves in this small hill outside the walls of Jerusalem give the appearance of eyes, and, below the rock wall recently built by the Arabs, another set of gaping holes representing nose and mouth hence the name of the hill. Immediately to the left is the Garden Tomb, which once ....

The Dilemma of Drugs

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Like ghostly specters of dread disease, death, and warfare, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse appeared to John in vision at the close of the first century A.D.

Were they merely a vivid nightmare of the elderly Apostle John....

The Incredible Human Potential
This is the eye-opening story of the real gospel message of Jesus Christ -- of how this missing dimension was withheld, and the whole world deceived. It's positively astounding!

The Key to the Book of Revelation
MYSTERY Book of all the books! If the Bible as a whole is the Book that NOBODY understands (except the very "elect"), certainly  REVELATION is the one Book IN the Bible least understood of all!

During the Depression New Deal many said it was ....

The Middle East in Prophecy

You need to understand! This booklet contains a shocking message — a warning for our day....

The New Feminism... Have Women ever Really Had Their Rights?
Have Women ever REALLY Had Their Rights? A new militant “RIGHTS — DEMANDING” CRUSADE suddenly gains momentum — A WOMAN’S LIBERATION MOVEMENT. Here is a condensed factual report on an in-depth research into both sides of the question. WAS MARRIAGE invented by men to subjugate women? Is not the very FAMILY-AND-HOME institution discriminatory against women? ....

The Occult Explosion... What Does It Mean?
Widespread occult interest has been both hailed as a breakthrough in knowledge and as a modern retreat into superstition.

The chances are you never stopped to ask yourself that question. You have been taught since childhood ....

The Plain Truth About Healing
You live in a world that relies primarily on medical doctors to treat illness. Most professing Christians today say: "God raised up medical science for our day.

Some believe in healing by one of the forms of ....

Few professing Christians have ever thought to question or to prove ....

Tithing
