Raising the Ruins
What happened to the global humanitarian empire of Herbert W. Armstrong, one of the foremost religious leaders of the 20th century? Here is the shocking, gripping untold story of the doctrinal hijacking and spiritual destruction of the Worldwide Church of God after the death of its founder. It is the story of a cabal of leaders who destroyed Mr. Armstrong’s work, sold the church’s assets and hoarded the money. It is the story of the life-and-death, six-year court battle that ensued when a faith-filled few held fast to his mission and sought to defend his legacy-by raising the ruins.
