Pastors: Can I have your books?

20150630_095701Dear AG Pastor,

I know you have too many books.  We pastors love books. My shelves are overflowing.  I know yours are too. Here is a chance to get rid of some of them.   I am working on my PhD doing research on Assemblies of God doctrine.  Right now I am looking for sources in two areas: Bible Doctrines and Eschatology (Bible Prophecy).  I am surveying all of these books to understand what the AG believes on these topics and how these sources relate to the Statement of Fundamental Truths.  Most of these books were published between 1930-1960.  I can read them the ORU Library, but they don’t have all of them.  I would LOVE to have my own copies of all of these books.  I will be working with them for the next 6 years and having my own copies would be a great blessing.  Plus, I just love collecting primary sources when I study a topic.   Many of these books are probably in your office or in your church library collecting dust. Can  I have your books?

I am looking for all editions, the older the better, published by Gospel Publishing House on the topics of either Bible Doctrine (16 Fundamentals) or Bible Prophecy (Eschatology, Return of Jesus, Dispensational Studies, Revelation).

Major authors include:

  • P. C. Nelson – Bible Doctrines
  • E. S. Williams – Systematic Theology
  • Myer Pearlman – Knowing the Doctrines of the Bible

Other Authors include:

  • Frank Boyd – All his Prophecy books
  • Stanley Frodsham – Things Shortly Come to Pass
  • Ralph Riggs
  • Ralph W. Harris
  • Stanley Horton
  • John G. Hall

If you have any of these old AG books published by Gospel Publishing House and would be willing to donate them to me for my work, I would be so grateful.
