“Unprecedented in church history”

  • A major cultic church is transformed from within.
  • Its leaders publicly repudiate key doctrines.
  • Christian churches from all denominations open their arms to the
    Worldwide Church of God.

This is the remarkable story of how the Worldwide Church of God was
transformed by truth. It is also a compelling account of how God can
change hearts and minds. Its message is timely and relevant to all
denominations and seekers of spiritual truth.

More praise for the book 

For nearly 70 years the Worldwide Church of God, founded
by Herbert W. Armstrong, preached a “different gospel.” Then,
in December 1994, eight years after Armstrong’s death, the church
publicly renounced its unorthodox teachings, embracing historic
Christianity. What happened? Toward the end of his life, Armstrong
himself expressed the first doubts. Soon falsehood after falsehood fell
away and the truth prevailed. In this fast-paced narrative, Joseph
Tkach, son of Armstrong’s handpicked successor and head of the church,
tells this remarkable account of the transforming power of the gospel.
