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).

Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.



"The integrity and accuracy of the word of God continues to be man's greatest spiritual and, consequently, his greatest material problem.
"A believers unbelief usually shows up most clearly in the category of money.
"The word "tithe" means tenth. If you earn one dollar, the tithe is ten cents. It's that simple. God knows that you can't receive without first giving. Noah knew it – Genesis 8:20. Abraham knew it – Genesis 14:20. Ananias and Sapphira didn't. They cheated and died – Acts 5:4, 5, 9, 10.

"The people at Corinth were abounding in some things, but not in giving and receiving, and this neglect stopped them from attaining an abundant life. Furthermore, giving and receiving is in keeping with God's calling. The believer called of God under Old Testament times gave a minimum, one-tenth. A born-again believer called under this, our Grace Administration, should give more and receive more. That is abundant sharing."
