The Gracious Giver of Life Everlasting This Book Is Dedicated

"The gift of God is eternal life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord."



FOR centuries man has searched for the fountain of eternal youth that he might for ever enjoy health, peace, and endless happiness. That great secret has ever been with Jehovah God. His time has come to reveal it to man, and to open to the vision of all who desire to know, the way to everlasting life on earth. Jesus said: "This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." This proves that knowledge of the way of life is necessary. This book is written to enable men to obtain that priceless knowledge. The great secret treasure of the truth is in the Word of God, and the student must find it there. The pages that follow will enable the reader to locate it.

Job is an outstanding character of the Bible. The book bearing his name has long been a mystery, to be understood only in God's time. Herein the prophetic words of the Book of Job are placed alongside of the facts which are known to exist, and the student is thereby enabled to see the meaning of that book.

If mankind can be restored to perfection of body and mind, and live for ever on earth in prosperity, health, peace and happiness, then all the difficulties that beset the world will be solved. Such are the blessings that God is now


opening to man. Life by redemption and restitution is God's way, and therefore the only way, for man to live for ever. Every man must be brought to the knowledge of that fact. Parents owe it to themselves and to their children to obtain that knowledge. It is within the reach of all.



THIS book is not propaganda. It is no part of a propaganda scheme. Its pages contain facts of vital importance for the education of the people. The reader is not asked nor expected to join anything. He is not asked for nor expected to contribute money. The facts are laid before him to enable him to see God's way, and therefore the only way, for man to obtain life everlasting on the earth.

Jehovah God made this earth for man, and made man for the earth. He alone can and will give man everlasting life on earth. This book brings to the attention of the reader God's gracious provision for man. The proof set forth herein shows that God's due time has come for man to understand and know the way to life.

This is not a religious book. It tears the mask from hypocrisy, tradition and formalism, and sets before man the truth. When you read it you will be able to understand it, and you will be glad. With full confidence that it will lift great burdens from the oppressed and bring joy to the sad, it is sent forth.
