At the End of the Ages: The Abolition of Hell (#3331) by Bob Evely. Is hell forever? Most say that the righteous go to heaven, and the wicked to hell, forever! Is this what the Bible teaches? This book presents evidence that the Bible, in the original languages, reveals that one day ALL mankind will be saved. Through time our Bible translations have become biased through the official teachings of “The Church.” The author argues that teaching about an eternal hell slanders God, and it prevents many from having faith because the arguments in support of an eternal torment are illogical. Would a God of love keep many souls alive forever just to torment them because they failed to “accept Jesus Christ” in this lifetime? The author shows that the Bible does not teach this. The purpose of “the eons” (i.e., “the ages,” often mistranslated “eternity”) is to bring ALL mankind to the point where every knee bows before Him. This work is written with the average reader in mind. Paperback, 171 pages, $4.95

Studies in Ecclesiastes: The Words and Works of God and Man (#0325) by Vladimir Gelesnoff (1877-1921) Many current versions of the Bible often translate the same Hebrew word in various ways. In this way a veil of mystery has been thrown over many a passage, and a certain amount of human opinion and guesswork has been imported into God’s truth. The Book of Ecclesiastes has severely suffered from inconsistency in translation – no sacred book has ever been so much misunderstood in its whole aim and spirit. Our aim should always be to adjust our thoughts to the facts, and never to adjust the facts to our thoughts. Applying this principle to the matter in hand, our prime concern is to ascertain what the book of Ecclesiastes has to say about itself. The book aims at achieving a threefold object: (1) Recognition of God as God; (2) Reception of His revelation; (3) Regulation of life in view of a future rectification or judgment.

Concordant Version of the Old Testament: Complete One Volume Large Print Edition (Old Testament)

The procedures used in making the translation are as follows: By analyzing the contextual usages of each Hebrew and Aramaic word, a single English word was first selected as its most suitable equivalent. Then, to achieve readability, some words were given a limited number of idiomatic variants that are harmonious with the sense derived from the investigations. English words used as the common translation of particular Hebrew words, and even idiomatic variants, were not used for other Hebrew words. Boldface type was used for words (or even parts of words) having exact counterparts in the Hebrew. And lightface type was used for words (or parts of words) which were added to clarify the meaning of the respective word in the Hebrew text. In addition, small symbols and abbreviations were inserted between or attached to words to represent omitted terms, to indicate grammatical features and the sources of emendations to the Hebrew text. Printed on thin "Bible paper" and hardbound with black imitation leather.

Figures of Speech Used In the Bible (#5169) by E. W. Bullinger.

It cites nearly eight thousand Bible passages and includes five appendices and seven indexes, making it even more valuable as a reference tool.

First Idiot in Heaven, The: Secrets of the Apostle Paul (and Why the Meek Merely Inherit the Earth) (#3250) by Martin Zender. Paul was a visionary. He saw the world as no one else saw it. Jesus Christ blinded him with truth. “To live is Christ,” this man said, and he lived life with singular purpose: to see and know Christ. In Paul’s evangel, God justifies sinners, not law-keepers or moral performers. According to what the terrestrial-bound Jesus taught (the gospel of the Circumcision), law-keepers and moral performers stay on Earth (“the meek shall inherit the Earth” – Matthew 5:5). So the Christians who think that imitating Jesus will get them to heaven will instead (assuming they can actually imitate Jesus) wind up on Earth. If you want to stay on Earth, wrestle with law. If you want to go to heaven, give up on yourself and embrace the gospel for sinners and idiots. -- 352 page, PB, $18.95

Being OK with Not Being OK – Embracing God’s Design for You … and Everyone You Know (and Don’t Know) (#1985) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. For now, you’re broken, and you aren’t going to be “fixed.” Granted, you may have some days that are better than others, some circumstances that seem to indicate that you are “OK,” but the wearisome cycle simply will recur. Thus it is by design – by divine design. Father is bringing you to a place where you are OK with not being OK, where you simply rest in His current purpose and plan in your training and development for that grand and magnificent culmination that He has so wonderfully and skillfully designed especially for you – in your next life.

God’s Holy Nation: Israel and Her Earthly Purpose (Contrasted with the Body of Christ and Its Heavenly Purpose) (#2275) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Israel plays a key role in God’s plan of the ages. Though currently she has been set aside “until the times of the nations be fulfilled,” He is by no means done with her. Today, God is operating His purpose in the ecclesia – the Church, the Body of Christ. The Scriptures provide us with the clear, critical distinction between God’s earthly nation and Christ’s celestial body. This work highlights some of the more prominent distinctions which belong to God’s literal, physical, earthly nation. ISBN: 9781934251887 -- 360 page PB $19.95 
Daily Gleanings: 365 Selections on Scriptural Truths (#1836) Editor: Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.  This book contains a collection of gleanings from some 200 different authors. These excerpts are intended to be an encouragement to those who are walking on a different path with the Lord – a journey that is “outside of the camp.” Some quotations are from beloved and trusted authors, but more often than not, they are from unusual sources. Sometimes, it is simply amazing how an author can admit in print to some grand truth that their writings and ministries otherwise generally deny. For the authors of these quotes, the truth that is conveyed by them may oddly seem “out of place”; but in some ways, the more unlikely the source, the more amazingly it testifies to the truth – and the fact that it cannot be hidden. ISBN: 9781934251836 -- 253 pp, PB, $19.95

God’s Plan for Man: A Journey of Surprises (#5039) by Kenneth Joyce. This is a condensed adaptation of Adlai Loudy’s classic work God’s Eonian Purpose. “This book will delight you as you read of God’s purpose of all mankind. Written in clear and simple language, it traces the purpose of God from earliest revelation to its fulfillment in the reconciliation of all to God in righteousness.” - Andrew Maclarty, Grace & Truth. 88 page PB $9.95


What Is Truth?: Absolute and Relative (#3575) by Don Bast. High above the storm clouds the sun is always shining. When we get a glimpse of God's perspective we are able to experience the Son of His love shining through the darkest storms of life. Dean Hough of the Concordant Publishing Concern and the Saviour of All Fellowship writes to Don concerning his book: “Your book is full of important truth and a good aid to understanding Scripture.” 216pp PB $14.95

Humanity in the Arms of a Loving Savior: and Important Related Matters (#1025) by – James T. Burson. The chapters of this book are connected in this singular manner; always, there is the attempt to display the grandeur of God’s purpose in creation. Never, is it proposed that God had a good idea which went awry and thereafter He supposedly has been picking up the pieces. Our confidence, as believers, may always be premised upon an over-riding assurance that God does not behave like a mortal, being hesitant, exasperated, indecisive, or hoping for the best outcome. This volume expresses the author’s confidence in a far greater outcome of the entire human epoch, than that which is generally proposed to the world. The flow of human history will not end in a groan, rather, a crescendo of praise by all, to a true God of love and mercy. God will not only win but He will radiate His victory over absolutely all that he has made; no other truth can settle the heart like this. Paperback, 328 pages $14.95

Outcome of Infinite Grace, The (#6388) by Loyal F. Hurley. "The last enemy to be destroyed is death!" It was this verse which caused the author, a pastor, to study afresh the subject of the fate of the wicked. The three choices apparent from a surface reading of various biblical texts were eternal torment, extermination or ultimate reconciliation. The author studied to find which one was true.
