Transformed by Truth: The Worldwide Church of God Rejects the Teachings of Founder Herbert W. Armstrong and Embraces Historic Christianity. This Is the Inside Story.

“The top religious story of this decade” — ECPA, Footprints “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.

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.
