We begin tonight in that section of Acts, were it any other book than the Bible, it wouldn’t be
here. The only reason this is in the Word of God is because the Word of God is truth, and it
tells the truth about men of God. Had I been God, I’d have never put the David-Bathsheba story
in the Old Testament, or a lot of other things. But I’m not God, and God in His Word, when
holy men of God spake as they were moved, God put in the Word what he wanted in it. That’s
why the 21st chapter and following is in the book of Acts. It is in that section of the Word of
God here that, boy I’d give almost anything if I didn’t have to teach it. Every time I work this
my heart breaks. I sit and cry in-side; and yet, it’s the Word and it’s the story of life.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
