If you are a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, you have no doubt heard of The Shepherd’s Rod, a message of present truth and reform first presented to leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the years 1929 and 1930. It has created much controversy. In What Every Seventh-day Adventist Should Know about The Shepherd’s Rod, author Garrick D. Augustus brings to light the historic and the theological reasons behind the rejection of The Shepherd’s Rod message. It exposes the systematic misinformation, as well as the willful manipulations of the facts surrounding Victor Houteff and the movement he began more than eight decades ago. It provides clear and accurate answers to the questions raised against the Rod’s message. And, it answers the objections church leaders have historically offered as “proof” against its bearing the credentials of inspiration. Augustus fused the forensic methods of evidence analytics, as well as the investigative method of internal evidence analysis, to the claims brought against the message by the leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. His research took him from the Heritage Library in Loma Linda, California, to The Biblical Research Committee in Silver Spring Maryland, and beyond. What Every Seventh-day Adventist Should Know about The Shepherd’s Rod journeys through the pages of history and helps to separate truth from propaganda. It takes a fresh look at an old controversy that began in eternity past and has played itself out in the rank and file of Seventh-day Adventism.

The amazing true story of an out-of-control rock star, his devastating addiction to drugs, and his miraculous redemption through Jesus Christ.

In February 2005, more than ten thousand people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian "Head" Welch—the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn—was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.

Now, in this courageous memoir, Head talks for the first time about his shocking embrace of God and the tumultuous decade that led him into the arms of Jesus Christ. Offering a backstage pass to his time with Korn, Head tells the inside story of his years in the band and explains how his rock star lifestyle resulted in an all-consuming addiction to methamphetamines. Writing openly about the tour bus mayhem of Ozzfest and The Family Values tour, he provides a candid look at how the routine of recording, traveling, and partying placed him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own.

Speaking honestly about his addiction, Head details his struggles with the drug that ultimately led him to seek a higher power. Despite his numerous attempts to free himself from meth, nothing—not even the birth of his daughter—could spur him to kick it for good. Here Head addresses how, with the help of God, he emerged from his dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him.

Discussing the chaotic end to his time in Korn and how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events of the last two years, exposing the truth about how his moments of doubt and his hardships have only deepened his faith.

Candid, compelling, and inspirational, Save Me from Myself is a rock 'n' roll journey unlike any other.
