Truth from the Earth – Volume Two: End-Time Prophecies Fulfilled
by Art Shotwell
About the author
Mr. Shotwell was born in 1948, the son and grandson of ordained ministers. As a child of five or six he participated in prayer and testimony meetings. He was taught as a child to “study all good books.” His writings show that he followed that admonition faithfully. He was the worship leader of his youth group and was ordained in 1966. He studied the Bible at Graceland College (now Graceland University) and was associate chaplain during his time there. As an adult he has preached “the word” in ten states and one foreign country. He and his wife Dawn served as guest chaplains in a physical rehabilitation facility in Virginia for sixteen years, conducting worship services every other month and substituting for other chaplains a few times. Now in semi-retirement, he continues to love the Lord and willingly participates in spreading God’s word whenever he is asked to do so or when the opportunity presents itself.
About the book
Chapter six discusses the nature and characteristics of God. Any statement, purported scripture, or theological claim which contradicts God’s nature cannot be true. If a person agrees with the Bible statement that God is unchangeable, but has a belief system based on the supposition that at some point in time God changed, that belief system must be questioned. If a person agrees that God is omniscient (all knowing) and wants every person to be saved, but does nothing to inform places in the world about the saving work of Jesus until they are discovered by European explorers fifteen or sixteen centuries later, that person must either change their beliefs about God or rethink what constitutes scripture. Chapter seven identifies seven characteristics of scripture and suggests that writings other than those included in the Bible need to be considered in the realm of scripture. Chapter eight details archaeological discoveries the author expects to be made in the near future. The content of this additional “Truth from the Earth” will sweep the earth as with a flood, causing an explosion in the knowledge and belief about Jesus. His return in glory will follow shortly thereafter. Chapter nine is a reiteration of God’s grace and the plan of salvation. The appendix “This Is True” is the author’s personal testimony of his encounter with the “still small voice” when he was reading scripture to his younger brothers as a teenager.
