COMING November 24, 2009: The new, 2nd Edition of The Holy Bible In Its Original Order
The Holy Bible In Its Original Order is an extraordinary Bible unique in two ways. First, it is the only complete Bible ever published that follows the original inspired manuscript order of all the books of the Old and New Testaments. With the original order of the 49 biblical books restored, the Seven Divisions of the Bible are also re-established: The Old Testament contains: 1) The Law, 2) The Prophets, and 3) The Writings. The New Testament contains: 4) The Gospels and Acts, 5) The General Epistles, 6) The Epistles of Paul, and 7) The Book of Revelation. With this restoration, Gods purposeful design of the Scriptures begins to unfold, revealing His divine inspiration.
Second, this version is a new translation--A Faithful Version--that reflects the true meaning of the original Hebrew and Greek with fidelity and accuracy. Today, in the face of rampant religious confusion, those who read the Bible deserve a translation that can be trusted. Reviewer Dan Decker of Bible Editions and Versions (June 2005) writes of this Faithful Version of the New Testament: It [is] an excellent translation for those desiring a literal one. Likewise, the Old Testament rendition faithfully conveys the clear meaning of the Hebrew.
Why another Bible? After the publication of the King James Version in 1611, the English Bible remained virtually unchanged. Beginning in the late 1800s, however, inferior Greek texts began to gain in popularity among scholars, from which sprang several corrupt translations. Over the decades, scores of such revised translations have been produced, collectively documenting the insidious corruption of the Word of God.
Most alarming is the recent trend toward contemporary versions ranging from the inadequate to the blasphemous in which the emphasis on an accurate translation has been abandoned in favor of a liberal paraphrase. The more popular translations are nothing but freewheeling renderings that destroy the meaning of the Word of God and dangerously corrupt its teachings. Yet, when the apostle Paul wrote, he used very precise Greek to fully explain Jesus teachings.
Indeed, the foundation of Christianity is being subverted and corrupted with new easy-to-read translations that alter the Word of God so dramatically that the true message of God has become lost. Numerous contemporary translations omit or add words even whole verses. Some translators have boldly added entire books that were never part of the original canon. And todays higher criticism has purported to expose so-called weaknesses and discrepancies in the authentic texts, undermining the faith of many.
Author Fred Coulter contends that the current assault on the Word of God must not go unchallenged. It is against this backdrop that Coulter was moved to produce a new translation free from scholarly corruption, political correctness and crude language. After publishing The New Testament In Its Original Order in 2004, Coulter teamed up with biblical Hebrew consultant Michael Heiss to produce a faithful translation of the Old Testament from the Hebrew Masoretic text. With both the Old and New Testaments faithfully translated, Coulter then published The Holy Bible In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary in an effort to preserve the Word of God in an understandable, easy-to-read manner.
Included are over 250 pages of commentaries and appendices covering virtually every aspect of the history, preservation and canonization of the Bible as well as covering numerous teachings of Jesus and the apostles. Historical chronologies, detailed footnotes and marginal references are also included.

Fred R. Coulter Minister, Author and Publisher
With a ministry now spanning 44 years, Fred Coulter is on a God-inspired mission to preserve the truth of God for the next generation of faithful Christians. According to Coulter, secular-liberal, New Age-satanic forces are fast at work corrupting the fundamental truths of the Bible and destroying godly morality. Additionally, prominent atheists in America and the UK have mounted bitter assaults against God and the Bible. In fact, Christianity itself is experiencing rampant doctrinal confusion and heresy, resulting in the overthrow of bedrock moral values. Even the Scriptures themselves are no longer held as sacred, but have been thoroughly violated in the rush to produce so-called modern gender-neutral translations.
It is against this backdrop that Coulter has worked as minister, author and publisher to produce nine biblical books, an abundance of booklets and papers, 1600 audio sermons, and 400 video sermon--all designed to safeguard the true doctrines of Christ, as well as the Scriptures themselves. Recent publications include Occult Holidays or Gods Holy Days--Which?, now in its second edition. A much-needed resource for Bible students, this book contrasts the pagan holidays of nominal Christianity with the God-ordained holy days of the Bible. In July of 2008, Coulters work reached a personal milestone with the first printing of The Holy Bible In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary. This new English translation is an easy-to-read rendering of the Old and New Testaments and is completely faithful to the original texts--including their original manuscript order.
Coulter has also developed in-depth Web sites for the purpose of preserving biblical truth (cbcg.org and biblicaltruthministries.org). Over a thousand audio sermons and Bible studies are available for download, including numerous sermon transcripts and biblical articles. Commentaries, histories and chronologies are also available.
Education Coulter graduated from San Mateo State College and attended the University of San Francisco before graduating from Ambassador University, Pasadena, CA, with a BA in Theology in 1964. Coulter completed advanced biblical and ministerial studies from 1972-75 under the Ambassador University Master s Program.
Translating the New Testament After completing formal instruction in NT Greek, Coulter continued to expand his knowledge of Greek for the next 20 years by undertaking a verse-by-verse study of the books of the New Testament using the Byzantine Text. In the course of his study, he was moved to translate the Gospel accounts into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary reader--resulting in his first published work, A Harmony of the Gospels in Modern English (now in its third edition). Ultimately, Coulter was inspired to translate the entire New Testament. After twelve years of translating, The New Testament In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary was completed and published in 2004.
Ministerial Career Ordained as a minister of Christ in 1965, Coulter has served as pastor of several Sabbath-keeping churches in the Pacific Northwest, the Mountain States, the Los Angeles area and the central coast area of California. Since 1983, Coulter has served as pastor of the Christian Biblical Church of God (CBCG), headquartered in Hollister, California (cbcg.org).
