Format: Hardcover
Religion is dangerous, as world history and the events of today continue to demonstrate. When people form opinions without considering all the facts, they can lose their way. Over the last 3 decades I have found this study series to be a useful antidote to religious extremism. Fair, tolerant, and unafraid to challenge traditional views, this series undertakes a careful study of every aspect of Bible teaching. The favorite traditions of every denomination are exposed to the light of Scripture, and the traditions seem weak by comparison.
Volume 1, The Divine Plan of the Ages:
Major study topics: Evidence of the validity of the Bible; The "election" or call of Christ's church; Different levels of life in God's family; The Ransom or purchase of the human race by Christ, and what it really means; The concept of Restitution or restoration of what was lost; Dispensational time periods in human history; How human society is being changed by God; What to expect in the near future (eschatology).
Tens of millions have been blessed by this book alone. See my separate review.
Volume 2, The Time is at Hand
Major study topics: Bible chronology (dates from the Bible and secular history that establish a timeline past and future); Prophecies fulfilled at Christ's first advent; The manner in which Christ will return and reappear; The Jubilee or release from slavery of the entire earth; Parallels between the Jewish and Christian time periods; Prophecies of the rule of Israel by Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome; Prophecies about the coming of Elijah before the "end"; The "Man of Sin" or "Antichrist"; and conclusions about what to expect in the 20th Century.

The Early Beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses Jan. 2 2006
By E. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Charles T. Russell's famous bible study series that gave great impetus to the preaching work of Jehovah's Witnesses during the early days of their modern history in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Although there has been numerous changes in Jehovah's Witnesses teachings since that time as the 'light gets brighter and brighter' (Prov. 4:18) many of the fundamental teachings from that time, that distinguish Jehovah's Witnesses from other religions, remain essentially unchanged.

These fundamental Bible based teachings and others are found in this series written by Charles T. Russell the 1st president of the Watch Tower Bible & Tract Society:

[1] Jehovah is Almighty God not part of a Trinity, the Son was God's first creation, holy spirit is not a person but a force from God. - The Atonement Between God and Man, chaps. 2, 3, 8.
[2] God's Kingdom is a real government that will rule from heaven over the earth. - The Divine Plan of the Ages, Chap. 14.
[3] The soul is not immortal and the dead are unconscious awaitng a resurrection. - The Atonement Between God and Man, chap. 12.
[4] The earth will be made into a paradise home for mankind. - The Battle of Armageddon, chap. 14.
[5] The year 1914 marked the end of the the Gentile times - The Time is At Hand, chap. 4.

Of course since Russell's time Jehovah's Witnesses have gained a better understanding of the Bible so numerous explanations in this series have been abandoned. A example of this is in "Thy Kingdom Come", chap. 10, which deals with the belief that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was an extrabiblical sign given by God to aid people to have faith in the Bible. Jehovah's Witnesses no longer believe the Great Pyramid has anything to do with God or the Bible.

"Studies in the Scriptures" was very helpful in its time in helping many acquire a better understanding of the Bible. However, its time has passed so it will not aid you to gain an up to date understanding of the Scriptures. However, if you are interested in the history of Jehovah's Witnesses, this series is a must for your library.

finally, a home bible study that helps you learn your bible! June 9 2003
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read all seven books in this series and give high praises to the Lord for giving us this meat in due season. Broken down into seven books covering varying topics from the setting up of the Kingdom of God ("Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven...") to the battle of armageddon to what is expected scripturally of a Christian in his or her walk with the Lord (The New Creation), these books cover just about every facet of the bible relevant to the Christian today. Charles T. Russell was also ahead of his time when in 1910 he "predicted" from bible prophecy the return of the Jewish people to the homeland. He died in 1916, and Israel became a nation in 1948. Only God knows the beginning from the end, and could give such insight to a loyal servant. I have been extremely blessed by the messages in these books and after looking up each and every scripture as I read, I have good grasp on what the bible does and does not say. These books are for the serious bible student. If you are interested in an in-depth study of God's word and works, these are definitely the books for you! Lord Bless your studies.

Studies in the Scriptures- Six Volumes-Charles T. Russell Aug. 31 2012
By Bionic Tangerine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am extremely pleased with my purchase of STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES from Amazon.Com. This is a reprint of a set of books that has long been out of print, so I was pleased to find a "new" set. The pocket size of the volumes is 4 1/2" by 7 1/4". I was afraid that the print would be too small when I first saw the set, but it is fine. The product is well made, bound nicely with I guess a canvas type covering. The paper, as is the whole book(s) are of very good quality. They appear to be very durable, which is good as they are really a reference material. Would highly recommend. As usual, Amazon's service was amazing.

Great alternative to the antique version Feb. 18 2008
By Lauren Mendez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was very happy with the books. They are new and at a very reasonable price. It is very difficult to find all 7 antique books.
