I have read this book about 4 times in the last two years. It is astounding and eye-opening! I highly urge everyone to read it! Be prepared to be amazed at what God has in store for all of us.

Truth will always have its critics in this world. Even though they see it, they do not accept it as a ... child, because it is contrary to what they wish to do / accept / have been taught.
This book unveils the truth scattered throughout the Bible ("here a little, there a little...precept upon precept") of the proclaimed soon-coming RULE of God's Kingdom over this earth through Jesus Christ and the then spirit-born brothers/sisters of Christ.
It does not say we will "rule over other god beings on other planets in outer space".
The late Herbert Armstrong ... lays out God's plan unrolling it like a scroll through each chapter and its subsections, constantly reiterating what has been said to keep you in remembrance.
The Bible was put together in such a way as to purposefully be confusing so those that would still be defiant / deceived by the ... fallen angels (aka spirits/demons) upon FULL knowledge of the truth, would not receive the ultimate sentencing of eternal [end of life]("God desires that all repent and come to a knowledge of the truth"). Mr Armstrong lays this all out clearly. Only in this human age is God calling a select few. Later others will know and see the beauty that God's Kingdom has wrought on this earth in the second resurrection.
This is a fine addition to anyone's Bible study library.

This is a great book that you do not want to pass around because you more than likely will not get it back, so if you by one for yourself, buy one for a friend too. I purchased two. One for my son and one for myself after my son told me about his reading it in prison. It made a huge impact on him and that made me want to puchase it. I bought him one too because he moves quite frequently to different prisons. Love this book.

This book gives the answers to why man was put here on earth by supreme spirit beings who have designed the future of mankind to become spirit eternal beings and share in the awesome powers of beings God and a part of the God Family to which all humans can be born into by a ressurection. Jesus Christ being the firstborn of many brethern. A great book for those who are confused by the Protestant and Catholic or other meaningless religions.

I have read the book. Every good member in Mr. Armstrong's church had one and read it. I also graduated from the church's college.

I gave the book 1 star, although on Amazon that means, "I hated it." I didn't hate it, but I have serious concerns about it as a former Church of God member who has no animosity against those churches. The author has only an experiential understanding of God and no formal religious or theological training, That means Mr. Armstrong did not have formal theological training which would subject his ideas to rigorous review from his Christian peers and scholarship. That is not so much a major problem, except the author goes further and blatantly rejects the vast majority of Christian scholarship and makes incredibly bizarre claims to "special revealed" truth. So if you read, be very wary and very careful. Consider the following quote from CS Lewis, "Theology means 'the science of God,' and I think any man who wants to think about God at all would like to have the clearest and most accurate ideas about Him which are available." - CS Lewis, taken from "Mere Christianity."

Biblical truth has a coherence to it (a little here and a little there, for sure, but truth coheres). Mr. Armstrong's truth does not cohere. In fact he states that the entire world has been deceived and the true Gospel suppressed since the first century. How does that cohere with hundreds of years of Christianity? Also consider that the church he started ultimately took the book out of publication because of that failure.

These books originately were not to be sold. The Late Herbert W. Armstrong believed "Freely you give, freely you have recieved". Look for Church of God groups that preach and believe the truths that HWA taught. The truth is always free.
