While living in Colombo, Sri Lanka, brother Choate wrote these lessons as a Bible correspondence course which was printed in weekly installments in a local newspaper. His desire was to present the biblical truths regarding the Lord’s church in such a plain and simple way that even those who had no background in Bible knowledge could understand. Since that time, the lessons have been translated into more than a dozen languages and printed in numerous countries around the world.
The usefulness of the book is increasing even here in the States among Bible-believing people, because of the doctrinal weakness in the church. Each lesson is followed by questions. Useful as a Bible course or class book.
