the years we have received literally thousands of questions on various
biblical topics from our readers and viewers. In the past, we have
addressed many of these questions in our various periodicals. Unfortunately,
those new to our program and literature usually do not have access
to the many questions and answers we have published in past years.
For this reason, we have compiled, edited, and revised a fair number
of the questions and answers we have published, and are now presenting
them in this volume.
have observed that new readers and viewers, once they have had time
to compare our beliefs with the teachings of their own Bibles, often
ask the same questionsor variations of the same questionsthat many
before them have asked. It is our hope that this booklet will help
new students of the Bible to find answers to their questions more
will notice that the questions are organized under eleven categories.
of the categories overlap with others. For instance, the section
on the law overlaps somewhat with the section on the Sabbath and
festivals, and the section on prophecy overlaps with the section
on "last things." The latter deals primarily with concepts regarding
heaven, the soul, the afterlife, and the resurrection, while the
former deals mostly with properly understanding prophetic texts.
questions are representative of the many questions we receive by
way of the regular mail, e-mail, and telephone calls. Most of them
have been reworded and condensed for the sake of clarity.
hope you find this volume helpful to you as you continue your study
of God's Word.
