n Indian proverb states, "A people without history are like theblowing wind." Today, there is an abysmal lack of knowledge amongSabbath-keepers of their own history. This dearth has motivated me towrite a couple of books on the fascinating subject of church history.
Why should you study church history?
Because you cannot understandwhat is happening today in the Sabbath-keeping Churches of God without abackground of what has happened in the past. Unless we learn the lessonsof the past, we are destined to repeat the mistakes of our ancestors. Thehistory of God’s Church is both thrilling and educational. "He that hath anear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches,"
Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22
.I have long been interested in the history of Sabbath-keepers. Not knowingone’s history is like starting to watch a movie in the middle. You don’tknow what happened before, and have difficulty understanding what ishappening now. When you look into the history of Sabbath-keepers, yousee striking examples of the maxim, "history repeats itself." You see therelationship between different groups, and appreciate more fully how theyarrived at their position today. You find characters, such as John James, Dr.Peter Chamberlen, Gilbert Cranmer, and many others, with whom you canidentify. You can appreciate their work for the Master, their problems andtheir trials.
