DR. BACCHIOCCHI'S 17 BOOKS

 

         Until November 30, 2004, you can order the complete set of the 16 volumes I have authored on our fundamental Adventist beliefs, for only $120.00, mailing expenses included, instead of their regular price of $305.00.  This means that you are paying only $7.50 per book, instead of the regular price of $20.00 per book.

 

         These 16 volumes represent for me 30 years of painstaking biblical research designed to help Christians understand and experience more fully those vital truths that God has revealed for our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  My aim is to provide not a cultural but a Biblical perspective on crucial issues we face today. This is why I have chosen BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES as the logo of my ministry of research.

 

This is a brief description of each book:

 

 

 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 GibsonÕs portrayal of ChristÕs 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.

 

 

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.

 

 

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 GodÕs glorious plan for your present life and future destiny.

 

 

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.

 

 

 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 imprimaturÑapproval. The book documents the role of the papacy in changing the Sabbath to Sunday in early Christianity.

 

DIVINE REST FOR HUMAN RESTLESSNESS.

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 SaviorÕs 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.

 

 

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 JesusÕ 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 is the largest and, in the view of some people, the best book that written by Dr. Bacchiocchi. You will find in The Advent Hope 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 LINDSEYÕS 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 LindseyÕs 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 ChristÕs 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 ChristÕs death and of His heavenly ministry. 

 

 

GODÕS 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.

 

 

GODÕS 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.
