THE MANIFOLD BENEFIT OF THE WAY OF LIFE ADVANCED BIBLE STUDIES SERIES

Way of Life’s Advanced Bible Studies Series is a serious set of Bible studies, equivalent to a complete Bible College curriculum. We don’t believe that you will find better quality, more truly life-changing Bible courses from any other source. We are continually revising the courses, and with each new edition they become more mature. There are currently 20 volumes averaging 265 pages each. The subjects are Acts, Bible History and Geography, The Bible Version Issue, Defense of the Faith, First Corinthians, The Four Gospels, Genesis, Give Attendance to Doctrine, Hebrews, A History of the Churches from a Baptist Perspective, How to Study the Bible, James, Job, The New Testament Church, Pastoral Epistles, Proverbs, Psalms, Revelation, Romans, and Understanding Bible Prophecy. (The place to start is with “How to Study the Bible.) The courses are based strictly upon the King James Bible and the powerful word studies assist in the understanding of the KJV but do not cast doubt upon it. They are thorough and comprehensive, yet they are laid out in outlines that are easily taught. They are very practical and have the objective of producing well-equipped Christian soldiers that have a solid understanding of the Bible and God’s perfect will. They stress holy and obedient Christian living and separation from worldliness and error. They magnify evangelism and the New Testament church and promote world missions. They emphasize the essential differences between law and grace, the church and Israel, positional and practical sanctification, and they continually fortify the student’s understanding of the life-changing doctrines such as justification, substitutionary atonement, and eternal security. The courses are non-Calvinistic and interpret Bible prophecy from a literal pre-tribulational perspective. The diligent student can be prepared to stand against the wiles of the Devil and to refute the major theological heresies of our day. One pastor said the books “are extremely helpful for any Christian, no matter where they are spiritually; the practical application is extremely helpful and edifying.”

THE BOOK OF ACTS. ISBN 1-58318-083-4. This course covers one of the most exciting and important books in the Bible. It deals very practically with church and missionary endeavor and also covers many important and foundation doctrines and practices, such as the resurrection and second coming of Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, repentance, inspiration, preaching, prophecy, baptism, church membership, the Lord's supper, Christian charity, apostles, deacons, missionaries, pastors, bishops, ordination, offerings, the nature of the church, prayer, holiness, martyrdom, and evangelism. The course refutes many false doctrines that are prevalent today, such as Charismatic tongues, healing, and second blessing. It clears up many controversial issues such as the difference between the baptism and filling of the Holy Spirit, the woman's role in the ministry, baptismal regeneration, election, sign miracles, repentance, modern church growth practices, and how to deal with false teaching. The course includes several Bible maps, and the student learns where each event in the book of Acts takes place. 168 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $9.95

THE BIBLE VERSION ISSUE: A COURSE ON BIBLE TEXTS AND VERSIONS AND A DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE. (Note: The 775-page book Faith vs. the Modern Bible Versions was originally advertised for the Advanced Bible Studies Series, but we have decided that it is more a seminary level course. Thus we have replaced that title with the shorter volume entitled The Bible Version Issue. The book Faith vs. the Modern Bible Versions is available separately from Way of Life Literature.) The Bible Version Issue is an extensive defense of the King James Bible. In this course we examine five reasons for holding to the KJV: (1) because of the doctrine of divine preservation, which authenticates the Traditional Greek Text underlying the King James Bible, (2) because the theories of textual criticism supporting the Modern Greek Text are heretical, (3) because the modern texts and versions are a product of end-time apostasy, (4) because of the King James Bible‚s superior doctrine, and (5) because of its unmatched heritage. The course concludes with an exciting study on the history of the English Bible from Wycliffe to the 1611 KJV. The course features 429 sectional review questions to reinforce the teaching. A separate teacher's test book is available containing sectional and final tests with answer sheets. 415 pages, 7X8, perfect bound, $19.95

THE BOOK OF FIRST CORINTHIANS. ISBN 1-58318-102-4. This course, is an in-depth study of Paul’s first Epistle to Corinth, one of the most important and practical books of the New Testament. This unique epistle contains the most complete biblical teaching in the entire New Testament on the following important subjects: Disunity in the Church (1 Cor. 1-2), the Judgment Seat of Christ (1 Cor. 3), Church Discipline (1 Cor. 5), Marriage and Divorce (1 Cor. 7), the Believer’s Relationship with Idols (1 Cor. 7, 10), the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11), Spiritual Gifts (1 Cor. 12-14), Love (1 Cor. 13), and the Resurrection (1 Cor. 15). 1 Corinthians should be viewed as a missionary manual in that it deals with a wide variety of doctrines and practices that arise in the context of church planting. Consider, for example, 1 Cor. 9:19-23, where Paul carefully explains the difference between giving up one’s liberty so as not to cause unnecessary offense to the gospel and going beyond this to doing something that is unlawful in this pursuit. It is right, for instance, to adopt a certain type of dress that is worn in the culture in which one is preaching the gospel, but it is not right to adopt any type of dress that goes against the moral standards of the Bible. Paul bared his soul more in his letters to the church at Corinth than in any others and gives many details of his life, ministry, and revelations that are found nowhere else. 270 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $19.95.

THE BOOK OF GENESIS. ISBN 1-58318-086-9. This large course covers one of the most important books in the Bible, the book of beginnings. Genesis is the foundation for the rest of the Bible. In fact, it is impossible to understand the rest of the Bible apart from this book. Genesis explains the mysteries of life, the origin of our world, the purpose of human life, the great mysteries of pain, sorrow, and death. Genesis prepares the way for the gospel by describing manxs fall and documenting the early genealogy of the Messiah and the covenants upon which the gospel is based. Genesis also points to the last days and brings New Testament doctrine to life in its character studies. This is a life-changing study of one of the worldxs most amazing books. The course deals with the geography and customs of Genesis, and the location of each event is noted on one of the coursexs six maps. Each section is concluded with a series of review questions. 345 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $19.95

GIVE ATTENDANCE TO DOCTRINE. ISBN 1-58318-062-1. This extensive study on Bible doctrine is very practical and deals with questions that commonly arise in connection with Bible truth, such as the following: How can we know that the Bible is the Word of God? Is there any real evidence? Can we be sure that Adam and Eve were real people? Was the flood of Noah's day worldwide? Is it proper to pray to the Holy Spirit? Should Christians speak in tongues today? What does the Bible say about "slaying in the Spirit"? How do we know that Jesus Christ is God? Why do some verses seem to say that Jesus is less than God the Father? Did Jesus make alcoholic wine or have long hair? Can the teaching of evolution be reconciled with the Bible? How do we know that man is not merely an animal? What does the Bible mean when it says man is made in God's image? Is man a little God? Does the Bible teach "soul sleep"? Can the Christian attain sinless perfection? Why does James say that faith plus works are necessary for salvation? What is the meaning of Bible words such as propitiation, repentance, redemption, justification, hope, mystery, impute, glory? What does it mean to be born again? Does God choose who will go to heaven and who will go to hell? Did Jesus die for all sinners or only for a select few? What does Romans 9:13 mean when it says that God hated Esau? Does eternal security mean that a Christian can live any way he pleases? What happens when a Christian sins? What about the verses used by those who say the believer can lose his salvation? Will there be one general resurrection of the saved and the lost? What will the resurrection body be like? What was Satan like before he sinned? How can the Christian defeat Satan? What is heaven like? Are the wicked annihilated in hell? 208 pages, 7X8, perfect bound $14.95

THE BOOK OF HEBREWS. ISBN 1-58318-090-7. This commentary and Bible course covers one of the most important and amazing books in the New Testament. Though there are unquestioningly many “things hard to be understood” in Hebrews, we understand that God has given us a key to unlock these things. That is, the proper interpretation of Hebrews depends upon understanding its two-fold theme: (1) Hebrews is a warning to Jews who had professed faith in Jesus to continue in that faith and thereby show that they were genuinely saved (Heb. 2:1; 3:12; 4:1, 11; 6:11; 10:38; 12:12-13). (2) Toward this end Christ is shown to be superior to all things that unsaved Jews put their faith in: prophets (Heb. 1:1-3), angels (Heb. 1:4 - 2:18), Moses (Heb. 3:1 - 4:13), the Mosaic Law and the Priesthood (Heb. 4:14 - 8:5). We know that the writer of Hebrews is not teaching that true believers can lose their salvation, because he plainly states that continuing in and persevering in faith is the EVIDENCE of one’s salvation rather than the WAY OF salvation. Hebrews teaches that it is possible to come near to genuine salvation without experiencing it. In Hebrews “we see Jesus” (Heb. 2:9) in a special way. The book opens the veil and invites us to gaze upon the throne in the holy of holiness on high more plainly than any other book of the New Testament. Hebrews “presents the only full discussion in the New Testament of Christ as the believer’s High Priest.” We show that the blood was not merely symbolic for death but was itself a crucial part of the atonement. The book of Hebrews teaches us anew that the Bible is a self-interpreting Book. In the book of Hebrews we have a divinely-given interpretation of the Old Testament tabernacle and priesthood. These were types of Christ and prophecies of the future and we are not left to imagine what they might mean. We are given a definite key to their interpretation. Hebrews, of course, is not only for Jews. It is for all of God‚s people throughout the church age, and it is a very practical book. Scattered throughout are exhortations to everyday Christian living based on the doctrine that is taught. Hebrews contains essential instruction about sanctification, backsliding and apostasy, Bible study, prayer, the exercise of faith, chastisement, the ministry of exhortation, church attendance, church leadership, hospitality, and worship. 307 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $19.95

HISTORY OF THE CHURCHES. ISBN 1-58318-079-6. This exciting course on church history begins with the apostolic churches and ends with the early 1800s. (We intend to deal with modern church history in a separate course.) The author believes that sound New Testament churches have existed side by side with the apostate churches throughout the centuries, including the darkest hours of the Middle Ages when Rome was at the height of her power. In the first section, we deal with the characteristics of apostolic churches. The next section covers "The Budding of Apostasy 100-700 A.D." Under this section, we deal with the development of the Roman Catholic "church," the church fathers, the progress of true churches, and the persecutions by pagan emperors. The next sections cover the Roman Catholic Church 700-1500 A.D., the Waldenses, the Roman Catholic Inquisition, the Bible in the Middle Ages, John Wycliffe and the Lollards, the Protestant Reformation, the Catholic Counter-Reformation, the Bibles of the Reformation, the Anabaptists of the Reformation, and Revival and Missions in the 1700s. The course contains 111 rare illustrations. 400 pages, 7X8, perfect bound $19.95.

JAMES. ISBN 978-1-58318-114-0. This commentary and Bible course covers the Epistle of James, one of the most overlooked but practical books in the New Testament. Though James was written to Jewish believers in the early days of the church age, it is needed today as never before. We can understand its importance when we consider the condition of churches in our day, even of the staunchest, most fundamentalist, Bible-believing types of churches. (1) Persecution and affliction is widespread among Christians in these last days. James addresses this matter in its theme of patience in trials. (2) Immaturity is rampant among professing Christians today. There are multitudes of people who profess Christ but who remain babes in their knowledge of the Scripture and in scriptural maturity. They are like those to whom James addressed his epistle. (3) “Easy Believism” is rampant today. $9.95

JOB. ISBN 978-1-58318-107-2. This powerful book has three great themes: The sovereignty of God, the age-old battle between God and Satan, and the age-old question of why the godly suffer and why God seems to hide his face in times of trouble. The study of this book will challenge and encourage every saint. Job is a powerful illustration of the truth of Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Note that the verse says “all things,” butwe often wonder if it really means “all things.” Consider Job. All things for him meant the violent destruction of his children, the sudden loss of all of his property, the unexpected onslaught of a terrible disease, the failure ofhis wife’s faith in God, the cruelty of his best friends, and the mocking of society at large. It appears that “all things” truly means all things! Job teaches the saint to praise the Lord and trust Him in the direst circumstances. We show how that Job did not know the reason for his affliction and why it was essential that he not know. This study not only contains lessons about God’s sovereignty and the suffering of the saints, but also on Satan, friendship, philosophy, science, prosperity and want, and many other things. We describe 10 scientifically accurate statements made in this, the Bible’s oldest book. 103 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $5.95

PROVERBS. ISBN 978-1-58318-109-6. The theme of this powerful book is finding wisdom through the fear of the Lord, and we have titled the course “Wisdom for the Wise and Foolish,” because Proverbs can help the foolish become wise and the wise become wiser. It is one of the most practical books in the Bible.True godliness gets down to where we live our everyday lives and involves every activity and relationship. It is first of all a book for young people, being addressed to “my son” and “my children.” Youth is the best time to learn wisdom, and this is where Proverbs begins, but it is also a book for saints of all ages. The book of Proverbs contains more wisdom about human life and the operation of home, society, commerce, and government than all of this world’s secular colleges and universities combined. There is more sound information on child training in the little book of Proverbs than in all of the child psychology books that have ever been written. The breadth of Proverbs is amazing. It contains practical wisdom for every type and class of person, for the king and the subject, the simple and the prudent, the male and the female, the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the master and the servant, thewise and the foolish, the married and the unmarried, the husband and the wife, the parent and the child, the angry and the calm, the patient and the impatient, the sluggard and the diligent, the friend and the enemy, the sad and the joyful, the one who talks much and the one who talks little. The book of Proverbs is a mirror that shows us the condition of our hearts. This course contains four major sections: (1) an introduction to Proverbs, (2) a verse byverse study of Proverbs 1-9 and Proverbs 31, (3) studies of the major themes of Proverbs 10-30 (Anger, Child Discipline, Counsel, the Fool, Friendship, the Poor, Pride, the Sluggard, the Talebearer, the Tongue, and Wine), (4) and studies of many of the important individual proverbs. 309 pages, 7X8, perfectbound, $19.95.

PSALMS. ISBN 978-1-58318-108-9. The book of Psalms is a most amazing and wonderful portion of Scripture. It is a devotional book, providing comfort, hope, compassion, encouragement, conviction, and spiritual zeal. It is a prayer book which teaches us how to pray. It’s a song book, a divinely-inspired hymnal for the child of God who walks through this present dark and pain-filled world. It’s a praise book, teaching us the acceptable way to worship a thrice holy God. It is a poetry book that far surpasses anything that the pens of the most acclaimed men have produced apart from divine inspiration. (And the King James Bible captures the exquisite poetry of the Psalms in peerless English, as we show in this course.) This course containsan extensive introduction to the Psalms that deals with its title, splendor, authorship, inspiration, inscriptions, division, interpretation, and New Testament quotations thereof. It then looks at ten major themes of the Psalms (the blessing of the righteous, the importance of the Word of God, the judgment of the ungodly, the afflictions of the saints, prophecy, God as protector and help, praise and worship, righteousness, God as great and holy, and imprecations). Finally there are expository studies on many of the individual psalms, including Psalm 1, 2, 12, 19, 22, 23, 37, 51, 72, 73, 90, 103, 119, 127, and 139. 250 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. $14.95

REVELATION. ISBN 1-58318-105-9. This course is a thorough study of one of the most important books of the Bible. Revelation’s chief purpose is to exalt Jesus Christ and to challenge New Testament saints to be ready for Christ’s imminent return. There is a great sense of urgency to this book. The very first verse says these are “things which must shortly come to pass,” and four times the expression, “Behold, I come quickly,” is repeated. The amazing events described in Revelation are imminent. They can begin at any time, and the book of Revelation, literally interpreted, is a great motivator for zealous Christian living. The Advanced Bible Studies course on Revelation is practical, comprehensive, exhilarating, and life changing. The student will learn how to interpret this prophetic discourse in a literal, consistent fashion that brings out the meaning of the most obscure sections. Revelation19-22 is simply breathtaking, with its description of the Bride’s wedding and eternal dwelling place, and we have attempted to bring out the glory of this passage to the believer’s heart. In the preparation of this course the author has had opportunity to glean from the pages of many old out-of-print pre-tribulational studies. For use as a commentary on Revelation, I believe this course will prove to be the most important one in your library. In fact, I will give you your money back if that is not. 465 pages, 7X8, perfect bound.$19.95

THE BOOK OF ROMANS. ISBN 1-58318-084-2. This course covers the Epistle of Romans, the first epistle in order in the New Testament because it is certainly the most important doctrinal epistle. The book of Romans is an orderly presentation of the gospel, of the way of salvation. It answers the great question, “How can a man be righteous before God?” It was also written to give Christians a doctrinal basis for their faith. It covers the important doctrines of salvation, sanctification, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Christian living, prophecy, and much more. Romans was also written to defeat the false teachers who were trying to confuse the believers of that day. The best way to overthrow the work of false teachers is to preach doctrinal truth carefully, point by point, and that is what we see in Romans and that is what we do in this course. We cover almost every verse in Romans and deal carefully with all of the difficult passages. 172 pages, 7X8, perfect bound $9.95.

We don't believe that you will find better quality, more truly life-changing Bible courses from any other source. They are based strictly upon the King James Bible and the powerful word studies assist in the understanding of the KJV but never cast doubt upon it. They are thorough and comprehensive. They are very practical and have the objective of producing well-equipped Christian soldiers that have a solid understanding of the Bible. They stress holy and obedient Christian living and separation from worldliness and error, exalt evangelism and the New Testament church, and promote world missions. They emphasize the crucial differences between law and grace and positional and practical sanctification, and they continually fortify the student's understanding of the life-changing doctrines such as justification, substitutionary atonement, and eternal security. The courses are non-Calvinistic and interpret Bible prophecy literally. The student will be prepared to stand against the wiles of the Devil and to refute the major theological heresies of our day.

One pastor said the books "are extremely helpful for any Christian, no matter where they are spiritually; the practical application is extremely helpful and edifying."

WAYS THIS SERIES CAN BE USED

- As private study guides for the individual Christian
- As Sunday School lessons
- As textbooks in Bible colleges
- As part of a home schooling curriculum
- As study material in jails and prisons
- For discipling new (or older) Christians
- As refresher study material for Bible College graduates
- As expository preaching outlines
- As Bible commentaries

Memory verses and review questions are included with each course.

TESTS AND SCORE SHEETS FOR TEACHERS ARE AVAILABLE SEPARATELY FOR EACH COURSE.

A lot of time and effort has gone into the creation of the review questions and tests, which are carefully designed to draw the student's attention to the most important points of the lessons and to help him remember these points long after the course is finished. There are no fluff questions and no mere busy work that merely wastes the student's time with things of no consequence. Each question is important and deals with things that the Bible student needs to keep in mind beyond the life of the course. The SECTIONAL REVIEW QUESTIONS go over all of the important points in the lessons thus pointing the student's attention to the most significant material and preparing him for the sectional tests. The SECTIONAL TESTS are drawn from the most important of the review questions. And the FINAL TEST draws from the most important of the sectional tests. Thus each test focuses the student's attention in more closely on the things that he should take away from the course and helps him remember these things by repeating them throughout the review and testing process.

If you take the courses by yourself, don't skip over the review questions and tests. Get the test books (and don't cheat yourself by looking at the answers) and find someone who will test you on the material. It is a very important part of the learning process.

(The previous description doesn't apply to some of the earlier courses such as The Four Gospels.)

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL

God promises to bless the man of God that separates from evil and delights in His Word (Psalm 1:1-3). I believe that the child of God can experience spiritual revival if he will devote an hour a day to the study of the Bible and the use of these courses.

IN WHAT ORDER SHOULD THE COURSES BE STUDIED?

The best place to start is with the course on "How to Study the Bible." This course teaches the principles of how to interpret the Bible and how to study it effectively by means of the most important Bible study tools.

The second course that we recommend to be studied is "Bible History andGeography," which gives an overview of the Bible and how each part fits together within the whole.

After that we suggest studying the courses in the following order: Acts,Romans, Defense of the Faith, Proverbs, Psalms, Four Gospels, UnderstandingBible Prophecy, Give Attendance to Doctrine, The New Testament Church, 1Corinthians, Genesis, Pastoral Epistles, Revelation, A History of theChurches, The Bible Version Issue, Job, and Hebrews.

TESTIMONIALS

"I wanted to say that your DVD series on How to Study the Bible is awesome.It is very helpful."
________________________________

"We are in our fifth week of classes teaching How To Study The Bible andGive Attendance to Doctrine. Every Tuesday I teach the Study course and every Wednesday I teach the Doctrine course. Each class is two hours in length. There will be a total of eleven classes for each course--that is 22 hours of classroom experience."

"I thought you would want to know that these folks are 'eating this up. They are delighted to be gaining a deeper understanding of the Word of God.They are memorizing verses, taking notes, writing papers about what they have learned, and taking the tests. What a joy it is to see them so eager to learn and to witness them growing in the Lord."

"I've been recording all of the classes on CD and we have one church member who listens to them while traveling for his company. He is listening to them and passing them on to others. Another student takes the CD's home and his wife listens to them. My sister is planning on using the CD's to teach her two boys while home schooling."

"I want you to know that I would recommend these books to any pastor orChristian educator."

"I currently am using the Bible study on the Gospels for our new teen SundaySchool program. I have found it very helpful in organizing my thoughts and giving me direction as I teach. I have found it very helpful to have a guide to determine what to say and how to say it. I have already seen growth in our youth group on the spiritual level because of this Bible study. Thank you very much for helping churches across North America and around the world to equip their people for service and deepening their relationship withChrist."

"I have used your Advanced Bible Studies books as teaching materials to prepare one of our men for the ministry. I appreciate your clear,straightforward Biblical teaching, and the man that is working through thebooks is growing and learning by leaps and bounds!"
________________________________

"I just wanted to give you some feedback on the Way of Life Advanced BibleStudy Series books, particularly 'The Book of Romans' and 'How to Study theBible.' Both books have been a tremendous blessing. I'm teaching Romans forSunday School and 'How to Study the Bible' on Wednesday evenings. Both books are extremely helpful for any Christian, no matter where they are spiritually. The practical application is extremely helpful and edifying.So, on behalf of our church family here in Park City, Utah, we thank you. I look forward to using your other books in the future."
________________________________

"I'm currently using the 'Give attendance to doctrine' series as a guide fora basic doctrines series in my adult Sunday School class. As a teacher, the book has been invaluable for planning and putting together notes for teaching.  What I appreciated about it, was that it was detailed (most similar courses are so shallow) without being so scholarly/academic."
________________________________

"I have read 'How to study the Bible' and used the DVD course with it. I also am currently reading 'Acts.' I have found these courses extremely helpful. I have learned a lot from them and I am planning to read and study all of the Advanced Bible Study Series books. I would not change a thing about the books. I love the format, the clarity, the assignments in front of the book and the questions that go along with the books."
________________________________

"I bought the whole series a few months back. The Lord had me to start with some basics (How to Study the Bible). Brother, that helped me a great deal.The Scriptures have 'come alive' even more, and it's amazing what a simple word search and study will reveal. God is so good. I'm now conducting a study of the New Testament Church and am looking forward to the rest of the series, and especially to Understanding Bible Prophecy."
________________________________

"I used your book 'How to Study the Bible' as a guide/textbook for preparing a Sunday School series on Studying the Bible/Bible Interpretation. I enjoyed the book. We made copies available for our people to purchase and encouraged them to purchase and read it. I taught many of the lessons and also added my own material. It worked very well!"
________________________________

"I am currently using your 'Defense of the Faith' book for a course by the same name that I am taking through Baptist Bible College Canada. It is a great book, very methodically laid out and thorough in its focus. The way the information is laid out also gives great sermon/Bible class outlines!"
________________________________

"Thank you for writing the course, 'History of the Churches.' It is very well written and documented. It was a little discouraging when I first began my search for an appropriate text for our college class. Your book has been selected as the text for our Church History class at Columbus BaptistCollege. Thanks for your in-depth research and writing. May the Lord continue to bless your faithful ministry for His glory."
________________________________

"Thanks for your stand on the Word, and Separation. I'm enjoying theAdvanced Bible Study Series I've purchased from Way of Life. I'm on volume two of about 14 -- a lot of information to process."
________________________________

"I want to thank you for the History of the Churches Study series. I have had my eyes opened to some things that I was not even aware of as far as the history of the Baptists. Your book really made a difference in my life and I now have a greater appreciation of the Baptist History. I am an Ind.Fundamental Baptist who is now informed on the How and Why of my faith. I have been saved for over 18 years and never have I read the complete story.I knew the Who, What, Where, When but the How and Why just didn't click. I intend on ordering more of the advanced Bible Study Series and I intend on becoming a more informed Christian. The book actually brought me to tears and conviction about some of my own short comings. I have asked the LORD to open my eyes and make me a better Witness and Soul Winner. Please continue to print and publish fantastic Baptist information."
________________________________

"I have thoroughly enjoyed your book on Hebrews.  It was very helpful in my teaching of this book in Sunday School."
________________________________

"We are busy preparing the Bible College for classes to resume in February.I am looking forward to teaching the Pastoral Epistles using the Advanced Bible Studies Series book. I am enjoying it & believe it will be used of theLord in grasping a good understanding these three books. Each student will have his or her own copy to work from."
________________________________

"I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your DVD series on church history.  Thank you for the fundamental and enticing delivery."
________________________________

"I recently purchased the study on '1 Corinthians' and 'How to Study theBible' which I found very helpful and extremely insightful."
________________________________

"I have used your Advanced Bible Studies Series on Acts, Defense of theFaith, The Pastoral Epistles, How to Study the Bible, and am starting on 1Corinthians. I recommend them to everyone, if you are a new Christian or been saved for 40 years. I feel that the Advanced Bible Studies Series is a great learning tool and I look forward to future books being published."
________________________________

"I have used several of the books in the Advanced Bible Study Series for personal study and in our church. The book that has been the best received is 'How to study the Bible.' God has used it in our church to help people grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior. They are constantly asking when we are going to study it again! Our Ladies Bible study is currently using the book on Romans. They tell me it has been a fruitful time. Our Wednesday Night Jr. High/High School Discipleship used the book onActs to study the first century church and their obedience to the GreatCommission. I just finished preaching through Hebrews on Sunday Nights, and the book on Hebrews helped me prepare messages, and offered insights.  I am praying about starting a Bible institute for layman. We will be using several of the books in this series if the Lord opens this door. These books are extremely practical and I have found that they can be used to help new believers, as well as spur the mature believer to a deeper consideration of the truths of God's Word. God bless your ministry!"
________________________________

"I have ordered other so called 'Advance Studies' but none come close to your Advanced Study Series."
________________________________

"The books are outstanding. I especially appreciate your direct, concise,no-nonsense, and strictly Scriptural approach. 'Defense of the Faith' and'Church History from a Baptist Perspective' are books that should be read by every Bible believing church member in this country."
________________________________

"I have eleven of the Advanced Bible Studies Series in my collection and I have found them to be very excellent sources for nearly every facet of ministry from preaching to teaching as well as for my own personal study and benefit. I have taught many college level Bible courses and these studies are the most comprehensive I have yet to get my hands on. You don't have to be a preacher, missionary, or evangelist to find these works of great value."
________________________________

"Each course seems to get better, and they were excellent to start with!"
