This book explains the Bible's main message in plain language. It is the basic truth of God, so staggeringly mind-blowing that men have not believed it. Satan hates it, and inspired many men hide, denounce, fight over, and even kill to bury this message. It answers life's basic questions as stated on it's front cover: Did you ever ask yourself "Who am I?", "What am I?", "Why am I?" Now, you can understand! Written for the people of the world!

A stunning egotist and vain person, Herbert Armstrong, whose biographer Herman Hoeh, claimed Armstrong to be "of royal blood", claimed that this book was "The Greatest Book Since the Bible". Upon reading it, however, it is more than filled with heresy, trite aphorisms stolen from other cultic religions, endless plagiarism and the shallowest hermeneutics a first year baptist Bible College student could take apart in 10 minutes.

The book was wholly written to serve Armstrong's enormous ego and unif

A must read for those in God's Church.

An extremely unique perspective, Armstrong challenges many traditional beliefs regarding Christianity. He attempts to reveal the truth of our existence by combining modern (at his time) science with Christianity. He proclaimed a very different message than his peers. Through spiritual enlightenment, Armstrong stated that he found the answers to life itself.

Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in 1933. He proclaimed that in his lifetime, behind world events, loomed a prophecy. Foretold

This is another book which I read many years ago but decided to re-read it in light of current world events.
I am glad that I did.
This amazing book will open your mind to understanding what is going on in the world today and will answer many questions.
Read it for yourself and see that Mr. Armstrong's interpretation of Bible prophecy is right on the mark.
Highly recommended.
