Way of Life Literature/David Cloud

Way of Life Literature is a 40-year-old Fundamental Baptist preaching and publishing ministry founded by David Cloud. The goal of is to stand for the truth of God's Word without compromise and to produce well-documented materials to strengthen New Testament churches in these apostate days.

Brother Cloud was saved by God’s marvelous grace in 1973 at age 23 out of a hippy lifestyle, and the Lord gave him a burden to communicate the truths of God’s Word via the printed page. Within six months he had printed his first booklet, warning of the dangers of rock & roll music. Brother Cloud was married to his wife Linda in 1976, and they have four grown children and seven grandchildren. Linda grew up in a non-Christian home in Alaska and was saved as a teenager after hearing the gospel preached on television and attending a Baptist church. She was called to the mission field while attending a summer camp. Brother and Sister Cloud have spent 25 years as missionaries in Asia and have had the privilege, with their co-laborers, of starting three Baptist churches, which in turn have started other churches. Way of Life Literature has published roughly 200 books in twelve languages, including the widely-used
Way of Life Encyclopedia of the Bible & Christianity. Brother Cloud is the editor of the monthly O Timothy magazine, which began in 1984.

The aim of Way of Life Literature is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to exalt the truth of His Word in this apostate hour through doctrinal preaching and carefully documented research. The name "Way of Life" is from Proverbs 6:23: "For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life." The biblical instruction that molds men to God's will requires reproof. It is not strictly positive. It does not focus on man's "self-esteem." It does not avoid controversial or unpopular subjects. It warns as well as comforts. It deals with sin and false teaching in a plain manner. It is reproves, rebukes, exhorts with all longsuffering and doctrine (2 Tim. 4:2). This is what we seek to do through Way of Life Literature.

Brother Cloud lives in South Asia, but he travels part of the year, preaching and researching. He built a 6,000-volume research library that is especially strong in the areas of Church History, Bible History, Bible Texts and Versions, ecumenism and apostasy.

Way of Life Literature is a ministry operated under the direction and authority of Bethel Baptist Church of London, Ontario. Wilbert Unger is founder and pastor of Bethel Baptist.
