THIS IS A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EACH OF THE 20 BOOKS

 

POPULAR BELIEFS: ARE THEY BIBLICAL?

Description. This best-selling book examines ten popular Christian beliefs from a historical and biblical perspective. Each belief, like Infant Baptism, Life After Death, Sunday Sacredness, is traced historically and tested biblically. Many Christians will be surprised to discover that some of their cherished, popular beliefs derive from unbiblical pagan teachings and church traditions. The aim of the book is to help sincere and open-minded Christians to test the validity of their beliefs on the basis of the normative authority of the Bible.

 

FROM SABBATH TO SUNDAY. A HISTORICAL INVESTIGATION OF THE RISE OF SUNDAY OBSERVANCE IN EARLY CHRISTIANITY

Description. This book presents the results of five years of painstaking research done by Dr. Bacchiocchi at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome on how the change came about from Saturday to Sunday in early Christianity. The book has the distinction of being the first publication written by a non-Catholic ever to be published with the Catholic imprimatur-approval. The book documents the role of the papacy in changing the Sabbath to Sunday in early Christianity.

 

DIVINE REST FOR HUMAN RESTLESSNESS. A THEOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE GOOD NEWS OF THE SABBATH FOR TODAY

Description. This book complements From Sabbath to Sunday by offering a stirring theological presentation of the relevance of the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath for our tension-filled and restless society. You will find in this book practical principles on how to experience through the Sabbath the Savior's rest and peace in your life. The book has been translated in fifteen languages, helping many to discover the Sabbath as a day of joyful celebration of God's creative and redemptive love.

 

THE SABBATH UNDER CROSSFIRE. A BIBLICAL ANALYSIS OF RECENT SABBATH/SUNDAY DEVELOPMENTS

Description. The book analyzes in a systematic way the most common arguments used to negate the continuity and validity of the Sabbath for today. With compelling Biblical reasoning, it unmasks the fallacies of the attempts made to reduce the Sabbath to a Mosaic institution, fulfilled by Christ and condemned by Paul. The final chapter, "Rediscovering the Sabbath," offers an informative update on the rediscovery of the Sabbath by numerous religious groups and church leaders.

 

THE SABBATH IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

Description. In this book Dr. Bacchiocchi summarizes his extensive research by presenting four basic reasons for the permanence of the principle and practice of Sabbathkeeping in the New Testament. The second half of the book answers a wide variety of questions often asked about the Sabbath. To the delight of many the new edition includes a chapter by Mrs. Bacchiocchi where she shares 20 of her family's favorite Italian Sabbath recipes.

 

IMMORTALITY OR RESURRECTION? A BIBLICAL STUDY ON HUMAN NATURE AND DESTINY

Description. With compelling Biblical reasoning, this book unmasks the oldest and possibly the greatest deception of all time, namely, that human beings possess immortal souls that live on forever. It will help you understand how this deceptive teaching of innate immortality has fostered a whole spectrum of erroneous beliefs that have affected adversely Christian thought and practice. Most important of all, this book will increase your appreciation for God's glorious plan for your present life and future destiny.

 

THE PASSION OF CHRIST IN SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY

Description. This book has two major objectives. The first is to provide the information necessary to help people distinguish between what is biblical and what is unbiblical in Gibson's portrayal of Christ's Passion. The second objective is to help Christians of all persuasions more fully appreciate the centrality, necessity, and achievements of the Cross. May a thoughtful reading of this book lead many people to appreciate more fully the Passion of Christ as His passionate love to redeem us from the penalty (Gal 3:13) and the power of sin (Titus 2:14) through His sacrificial death.

 

THE CHRISTIAN AND ROCK MUSIC: A Study on Biblical Principles of Music

Description. Seven authors of six different nationalities have contributed chapters to this book, which has two main objectives. The first is to help people understand the true nature of the various styles of rock music popular today. Special consideration is given to the problems arising from transforming rock music into a medium for Christian worship and evangelism. The second objective is to define those biblical principles that should guide Christians in making good musical choices. The book clearly delineates the issues and provide biblical answers to the problems which have caused so many Christians to stumble. For concerned Christians, this book may well be a musical survival kit in our compromising society.

 

CHRISTIAN DRESS AND ADORNMENT

Description. At a time when nudity is in and modesty is out, it is important to understand how our outward appearance reveals the picture of Christ whom we serve. This book examines the Biblical teachings regarding dress, cosmetics, and jewelry. It is an important book designed to help Christians follow the simplicity of Jesus' life-style, even in regard to clothes and appearance. 

 

THE MARRIAGE COVENANT. A BIBLICAL STUDY ON MARRIAGE, DIVORCE, AND REMARRIAGE

Description. What many people appreciate most about this book is the clear and compelling way it articulates the Biblical principles for building a happy and lasting marital relationship. Many have expressed their appreciation for the enrichment this book has brought to their marriage. Some couples claim that this book has saved their marriage. You will appreciate the Biblical approach to marriage, divorce, and remarriage.

 

WINE IN THE BIBLE. A BIBLICAL STUDY ON THE USE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

Description. This timely study has been heralded by many Evangelical scholars as a breakthrough research which is desperately needed to meet the alcohol epidemic raging in America today. With painstaking research the book shows that the Bible consistently teaches total abstinence and not moderation in the use of alcoholic beverages. This timely book is designed to help, especially young people, develop the moral convictions needed to resist the peer pressure to drink.

 

THE ADVENT HOPE FOR HUMAN HOPELESSNESS. A THEOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE MEANING OF THE SECOND ADVENT FOR TODAY

Description. This book offers a compelling analysis of the unprecedented fulfillment of the End-time prophecies. This book will teach you how to live in the joyful anticipation of Christ's Return. It will help you, who are called to live among the uncertainties and trouble of this present world, to find meaning, courage, and hope in the assurance of a soon-Coming Savior.

 

HAL LINDSEY'S PROPHETIC JIGSAW PUZZLE: FIVE PREDICTIONS THAT FAILED

Description. This book analyzes five of the predictions which Lindsey made in 1970, showing how they failed to come to pass. The purpose of the book, however, is not merely to show the senselessness of Lindsey's sensational end-time scenario, but primarily to help Christians understand the true nature and purpose of Biblical prophecies.

 

WOMEN IN THE CHURCH.A BIBLICAL STUDY ON THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN THE CHURCH

Description. This book provides a much needed balanced interpretation and application of the overall Biblical teachings on the role of women in the church. With compelling Biblical reasoning Dr. Bacchiocchi shows why Scripture excludes women from serving in the headship role of priests, elders or pastors, but includes them inthe supportive ministries of the church. The reason for this Biblical distinction derives not from the cultural conventions of the times, but from the distinct and yet complementary roles God assigned to men and women at creation.

 

THE TIME OF THE CRUCIFIXION & THE RESURRECTION

Description. This book examines the time element of Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection and offers compelling Biblical and historical evidences which clearly refute the Wednesday-crucifixion and Saturday-resurrection dating. The new edition includes new chapters dealing with the meaning of Christ's death and of His heavenly ministry. 

 

GOD'S FESTIVALS IN SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY  Volume 1: THE SPRING FESTIVALS

Description. This book traces the meaning and observance of Passover and Pentecost through Biblical and Early Christian History. The study shows how the Spring Festivals invites us to commemorate the redemptive accomplishments of Christ's first Advent, namely, His atoning death, His resurrection, ascension, inauguration of His heavenly ministry, and sending of the Holy Spirit.

 

GOD'S FESTIVALS IN SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY  Volume 2: THE FALL FESTIVALS

Description. The second volume examines the historical and theological development of the Fall Feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. The study shows how the typology of Fall Feasts points to the consummation of redemption, namely, the judgment, the final disposition of sin, the second Advent, and the restoration of this world. The two volumes challenge Christian churches to develop a church calendar pattern after the Feasts of Israel in order to celebrate during the course of the year the redemptive accomplishments of Christ's first and second Advents.

 

PROF. GRAEME S. BRADFORD, MORE THAN A PROPHET: HOW WE LOST AND FOUND AGAIN THE REAL ELLEN WHITE

Description. This book offer a much needed balanced picture of Ellen White by showing the authenticity of her divine revelations as well as the reality of her human limitations. This book has long been overdue and will do much to restore confidence in the validity of the gift of prophecy as manifested in the writings, preaching, and teachings of Ellen White-a woman who has left such a rich legacy, not only for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but for the world at large.

 

PROF. WILLIAM E. RICHARDSON, SPEAKING IN TONGUES? IS IT STILL THE GIFT OF THE SPIRIT?

Description. Through a painstaking analysis of the restrictions Paul places on tongues-speaking during the worship service, Prof. Richardson shows that Paul disqualifies much of the Pentecostal speaking in tongues today as an unbiblical, illicit activity. The confusion caused by several people speaking in tongues at the same time without any translation, is an illicit activity clearly condemned by Scripture.

Bruce M. Metzger, Professor of New Testament
PRINCETON THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
"The warning has gone out, Sunday is in trouble. . . . In order to gain a much needed perspective on this issue, a practical and worthwhile reading of From Sabbath to Sunday is needed."

Thomas G. Simmons, Director, CATHOLIC DIVINE WORSHIP 
Review, MODERN LITURGY MAGAZINE
"From Sabbath to Sunday is a remarkable ecumenical portent. After reading this solid piece of research any reasonable person must question the general easy uncritical acceptance of Sunday as the Lord's Day."

Marcus Ward, THE EXPOSITORY TIMES, England
"The scholarship of From Sabbath to Sunday is not just impeccable, it is truly a marvel. No patristic stone has been left unturned. An when, as in several instances, Dr. Bacchiocchi's patristic and scriptural interpretations are opposed to traditional interpretation, they are generally quite thought-provoking and in all rather persuasive. I am really most thoroughly impressed by the scope and vision of the work."

W. A. Jurgens
Review, THE CATHOLIC HISTORICAL REVIEW
"From Sabbath to Sunday goes over the traces of early Christianity in a very serious way to show how and why Christians moved their day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. . . . People who consider themselves far removed from the issue, will find something or other in this book that will lead them to a new understanding of worship."

Martin E. Marty, Ph. D., Prof. Church History, Chicago Divinity School,
Review, THE CHRISTIAN CENTURY
"From Sabbath to Sunday is a well-researched and well-written treatise that combines erudition, devotion, and an irenic spirit. ... The implications are staggering, not only for the Sabbath/Sunday question itself, but also because of the larger question of the relations between the Old and New Testaments."

Don A. Carson, Ph. D.
Editor of the symposium FROM SABBATH TO THE LORD'S DAY
"Divine Rest for Human Restlessness invites every reader to a penetrating and suggestive analysis of the tradition and significance of Sabbathkeeping."

Lloyd Wyman, Ministerial Director
PACIFIC UNION CONFERENCE OF SDA
"Few have pursued so rigorously the potential implications of the Biblical holistic understanding of human nature for such matters as the state of the dead and the final state of unbelievers, as Dr. Bacchiocchi has done.

Those who consider themselves biblicists cannot simply dismiss his findings out of hand."


William W. Klein, Ph. D., Professor of New Testament
DENVER SEMINARY
"Immortality or Resurrection? is an admirably clear survey of the Biblical holistic view of human nature that incorporates both body and soul in one unified self. It is based upon sound scholarship. I especially recommend it for students, pastors, and church leaders."

President of Christian Theological Research Fellowship,

UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH

Norman R. Gulley, Ph. D., Professor of Systematic Theology,

Woodrow W. Whidden, Ph. D., Professor of Historical Theology, 
ANDREWS UNIVERSITY
"In From Sabbath to Sunday Dr. Bacchiocchi attempts to ascertain the historical genesis of Sunday observance by a thorough investigation of Jewish, pagan, and early Christian contributive factors. His findings are significant and deserve one's careful consideration."

It will be helpful for all Christians."

James A. De Jong, Ph. D., 
President, CALVIN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
