Book: Occult Holidays or God’s Holy Days—Which?

Fred R. Coulter attended the University of San Francisco and graduated from San Mateo State College before graduating from Ambassador University (Ambassador College), Pasadena, California, with a BA in Theology in 1964. He was ordained a minister of Jesus Christ in 1965 and pastored churches of God in the Pacific Northwest, the Mountain States, the greater Los Angeles area and Monterey, including the central coast area of California. Mr. Coulter completed advanced biblical and ministerial studies in 1972-75 under the Ambassador University Master’s Program. While completing these studies, he was encouraged by his professor of Koiné Greek to consider translating the books of the New Testament.

For the next twenty years, Mr. Coulter diligently studied, continuing to expand his knowledge of Koiné Greek. While undertaking a verse-byverse study of the books of the New Testament, he was moved to translate the New Testament into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary readers— resulting in The New Testament In Its Original Order—A Faithful Version With Commentary. He has consistently used this translation of the New Testament in his other publications.

Fred Coulter has dedicated his life and talents to proclaiming Jesus Christ as personal Savior for all. Since 1983, Mr. Coulter has been the president of the Christian Biblical Church of God, headquartered in Hollister, California. He has an active ministry which reaches all parts of the United States and Canada, with additional offices in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Ethiopia and Kenya.

Each year nearly 500,000 people from around the world actively utilize the church’s Web sites—where they find timely, inspiring weekly sermons and in-depth, verse-by-verse biblical study materials covering virtually all of Scripture.

With his ministry now spanning over 45 years, Fred R. Coulter has again been inspired to take up the sword of God’s Word and has published this recent book: Occult Holidays or God’s Holy Days—Which? This work documents the pagan and occult origins of the holidays accepted and celebrated today by Orthodox Christendom. The book then demonstrates in great detail God’s true biblical feasts and holy days that He has commanded His people to keep—through which God actually reveals His plan and ultimate purpose for mankind, the pinnacle of His creation.
