   The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— 

Vol. IV.—The Times and Ministry of the Early Christians —The Acts of the Apostles. 

Heritage Edition—Over 100 Century-Old Illustrations, 385 pages. 

This fourth volume—The Acts of the Apostles—covers the experience of the early Christian Church. While the Bible’s book of Acts covers a period of only a little more than three decades, it is filled with important lessons for the church in every age. God clearly indicates that the Christian today shall experience the presence of the same Spirit who came with power at Pentecost and fanned the gospel message into a flame. The acts of the Holy Spirit through Peter and Paul, John and James, and others can be repeated in the modern disciple. The abruptness with which the book of Acts closes is not accidental; it deliberately suggests that the thrilling narrative is unfinished, that the acts of God through the Spirit are to have their sequel throughout the Christian dispensation—each successive generation adding a chapter full of beauty and power to the one that preceded it.

Vol. V.— The Christian Era Until Victory is Unanimously Achieved — The Great Controversy. 

Heritage Edition—Some 125 Century-Old Illustrations, 558 pages. 

This volume is a portrayal of the history and future of the Christian Church from the destruction of ancient Jerusalem in A.D. 70 until the establishment of the New Jerusalem as God’s eternal capital of the universe on this earth restored, with emphasis upon the end-time prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation. A clear description is provided of the over-arching great controversy between Christ and Satan, which began in heaven but is presently battling over the souls of mankind and will be brought to an end here on this earth.
