Learning From the Writings of Herbert W. Armstrong

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations... teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always” —Matt 28:19-20

“But when they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of man comes.” —Matt 10:23


Many organizations that call themselves “Christian” spend very little time teaching the actual words of the Bible. Hence, we should not be amazed when the organization which Herbert W. Armstrong founded no longer distributes or his writings.

While Herbert Armstrong never claimed that his writings were perfect or equal in authority to the scriptures, they have certainly influenced many thousands of people to reject false ideas taught in the name of Christianity and to understand much of the truth of the Bible.

While some people have understood a great amount of Truth by reading the Bible and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it seems that most learn it with the help of a teacher. It is a great aid to read the writings of a man that strove to learn and teach the Bible for over 50 years!

While some of his works (e.g. 1975 in Prophecy) are primarily of historical value, Mr. Armstrong's writings are an invaluable tool in teaching the truth to people that have never had a chance to hear or see him. They touch nearly every area of Bible, religious, social, and ethical questions that people ask today. Few men have ever or will ever write so much in one lifetime.

While many “long-time church members” have shelves and boxes full of these old articles and booklets, there are many others that have no access to them at all. We must remember that Herbert Armstrong has been gone for nearly ten years. There are many capable, converted men and women today that were children or teens when he passed away.

One such man is David Day. In order to serve the Eternal’s people, he has taken it upon himself to make copies of the text of the writings of Herbert Armstrong available to those that would like to read them. He already has nearly 100 books, booklets, and articles in a ready-to-reproduce format, and he is working on others. Mr. Day’s list contains some titles written by close associates of Herbert Armstrong, since these works are largely another author’s understanding of Mr. Armstrong’s teaching on a particular subject.

You can obtain copies of these writings by requesting them from:

David Day
548 Havasu
Tooele, UT 84074
Telephone: 801-833-0622

David would like to make these copies available in the same way Herbert W. Armstrong did: free of charge. However, we at Servants’ News would like to take it upon ourselves to encourage you to help David in a few simple ways:

1) Do not ask for everything you need to fill out your collection or for everything that you might want to read someday. This can require a lot of time and effort and result in little benefit. Ask for those items that you intend to read or give to others in the near future.

2) If you can, send something to help defray the cost of reproduction. Pages can easily cost five cents each to copy and about fives cents more to mail first class. Fourth class mail is only one to two cents per page, but it does arrive more slowly.

3) Let Mr. Day know about any important booklets or articles that you might loan him that are not on his list. Also, he is thinking about making Mr. Armstrong’s audio and video tapes available in the future.

The following page contains a list of the works available from Mr. Day. Those with two asterisks after the title (“**”) have not yet been prepared for reproduction. Please do not expect quick service on these items. This list is sorted in alphabetical order, with the words “a”, “an”, and “the” removed from the front and placed in parenthesis at the end of the title. Some of the titles, are booklets, some are articles, and some had been published as both..

We hope this literature can be a help to you and many others.
