About the Author

COLIN AND RUSSELL STANDISH were born in Newcastle, Australia, in 1933. They both obtained their teaching diplomas from Avondale College in 1951. They were appointed to one-teacher Seventh-day Adventist primary (elementary) schools in rural areas of New South Wales, each teaching for three years.

Both in 1958 completed a major in history and undertook an honors degree in psychology at Sydney University in the field of learning theory. Colin continued in this area, obtaining his Master of Arts degree with honors in 1961, and his Doctor of Philosophy in 1964. In 1967 he completed a Masters Degree in Education.

Russell graduated as a physician in 1964. Six years later he was admitted to the Royal College of Physicians (UK) by examination. He was elevated to the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Physicians in Edinburgh (1983) and Glasgow (1984).

In 1965, Colin was appointed Chairman of the Education Department at Avondale College. Subsequently he held the posts of Academic Dean at West Indies College (1970), President of West Indies College (1970-73), Chairman of the Department of Psychology, Columbia Union College (1974), President of Columbia Union College (1974-78), Dean of Weimar College (1978-83). He was invited to become the foundational president of Hartland Institute, which consists of a degree-issuing college, a wellness center, publishing house and a world mission division.

Russell as a Consultant Physician (Internist) has held the posts of Deputy Medical Superintendent of the Austin Hospital, University of Melbourne (1975-1978), President of the Bangkok Adventist Hospital (!979-1984), Medical Director at Enton Medical Center, England (1984-1986), President of Penang Adventist Hospital (1986-1989), and Director of Health Services in the Southeast Asia Union (1989-1992).

A fantastically written book, elevating the Absolute All Sufficiency of Christ. Excellent documentation exposing The Holy Roman Empire and it's role in end-time bible prophecy. Definitely something to be cherished outside of The Word of God Himself. While it is important to never take your eyes off Rome and her deeds she does in the dark with all the kings of the earth, this book will help you see how much terror and darkness this whore who sits has done to this earth and to God's people. Please read this....all of you!!!!

Format: Perfect Paperback
In 1988, my father left me an 1887 issue of Henry Grattan Guinness' book, Romanism and the Reformation (Hodder and Stoughton). The author is a great-grandfather of Os Guinness, a one time leader of L'Abri and Founder of the Trinity Forum. The author is also the father Mary who married a son of China Inland Mission founder J. Hudson Taylor.

The author refers to Boniface VIII (became pope in 1294 AD) and wrote that the he claimed to be "as God" (quasi Deus) on earth: "The pope is of so great dignity and power, that he constitutes one and the same tribunal with Christ (faciat unum et idem tribunal cum Christo), so that whatsoever the pope does seems to proceed from the mouth of God (ab ore Deo) ... The pope is as God on earth (papa est QUASI DEUS IN TERRA)" (pp 25-26)--emphasis the author's.

I believe it was when Pope John Paul II visited Philadelphia in 1979 that I heard him referred to as the "most holy father," but this is sad. The Lord Jesus addressed His Father with "Holy Father, keep them in Your name"( John 17:11), but "most holy" suggests that the pope is more exalted even than God the Father. Returning to the book being reviewed, the pope is NOT "as God" on earth. He is a sinner like the rest of us and will get into heaven only if he is wearing Christ's robe of perfect righteousness received by faith.

The author believed the Apostle Paul was referring to the oppressive rule of popes beginning around 600 AD. On pages 75-77, he wrote:

You will see that Paul's foreview consists of two parts: the first gives a general view of a great apostasy, which would in due time arise in the Church; and the second a carefully drawn portrait of the power in which that apostasy would be headed up.

I personally loved this book. It is a great read and a great resource for finding other resources of information for further study. I would recommend this book to anyone who is researching the reformation and the role of Romanism from the standpoint of prophecy. Just like the title of the book explains

The View of Romanism from the Early Reformers which is Sadly not being taught anymore in the Churches.
The Evils of the Rome should Not be Forgotten, as Many Lost their Life at the Hands of the Vatican System.
Many Interpretations of Prophecy of Today Seem to have Changed in Favor of Rome, why is that and are these Changes Correct ?

And Ofcourse : Should the Churches want to Reunite with Rome or is their Good Reasons not too ?
This Book will make you See Why we Should NOT, and is a Great Help in how to See the 1500 Year old Vatican System in Prophecy, as the Reformers Did.

Great Read worth every Dime, God Bless.

It found the book to be informative, it just shows how far Protestants have moved away from what they once believed in favor of the counter reformation teachings of Rome. The only draw back with this book is the type errors in the kindle edition otherwise its a great read.
