Book: God's Plan for Mankind

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. Coulter completed advanced biblical and ministerial studies from 1972 to 1975 under the Ambassador University Master’s program. While completing these studies, Coulter was encouraged by his professor of Koiné Greek to consider translating the books of the New Testament.

After completing his formal instruction in Koiné Greek, Coulter continued to expand his knowledge of Greek for the next twenty 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, Coulter was ultimately moved to translate the New Testament into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary readers. After twelve years of diligent translating, The New Testament In Its Original Order—A Faithful Version With Commentary was completed and published 2004.

Coulter has dedicated his life and talents to proclaiming Jesus Christ as personal Savior for all. Since 1983, he has had an active ministry as president and pastor of the Christian Biblical Church of God, Hollister, California. The CBCG has offices in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, South Africa and the United Kingdom serving thousands of people.

Each year nearly 400,000 people from around the world actively utilize the CBCG’s websites—where they find timely, inspiring audio sermons and in-depth biblical study materials covering virtually every topic in Scripture.

With his ministry now spanning 42 years, Fred R. Coulter has again been inspired to undertake the publication of this book, God’s Plan for Mankind Revealed by His Sabbath and Holy Days. This book expands upon the knowledge and information contained in another of his books, Occult Holidays or God’s Holy Days—Which?
