About the Publisher and Editor of Tree of Life Publications


by Nicolas Notovitch

Where was Jesus and what was he doing from ages 12-30? Why does the Bible leave out this important information?

Is there any truth to the myths and legends that proclaim that Jesus visited many other countries?

This book contains amazing accounts of Jesus' missing years based on an old manuscript that was found by the author in a Tibetan lamasery in the 1890's.

You will read about the author's dangerous journey to Tibet as you uncover the mystery of the "lost years" of Jesus' life.

Complete with maps, commentaries, and references. Oversized, 8 1/2" X 11".

Soft Cover - 62 pages ... $12.00 ... Sale price: Only $8.00

"A dark age began, a time of savagery, of barbarism, of book-burning, of superstition and worship of empty idols. The gentle Jesus was lost forever in the image of a crucified God; the Essene brothers hid their teachings in the minds of the few who could preserve them for their descendants, and the Scrolls of Healing lay neglected beneath the shifting shadows of the desert..."

"The Discovery of the Essene Gospel of Peace",

by Rev. Upton Clary Ewing

Who, in fact, were the ancient Essenes? What secret doctrines did they uphold? Why did they keep their practices hidden? How do these writings relate to Jesus and His teachings?

This vital book explores the pre-Christian origins of New Testament writings and the little-known mysteries of the ancient Hebrew sect called the Essenes. It explains their SEVEN DEVOUT PRACTICES.

New evidence is presented refuting the accusations blaming the Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus.

The author shows you why and how "The Sect of the Scrolls", the Nazarenes, the Ebionites, and the Palestine Christians were one and the same people.

Acres Diamonds

ACRES OF DIAMONDS by Russell H. Conwell

Meet a self-made man who lived a totally unselfish life, and who opened doors of opportunity for untold millions through his philosophy that "ALL GOOD THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!" He believed that each of us is placed here on earth for one main purpose--to help others.

Conwell was a minister, the founder of Temple University, and two hospitals where no one was ever turned away for lack of money. He was also a famous lecturer. In his lecture, the story is told of a man who sells his farm, to travel far and wide in search of diamonds. There is a moral to the tale Conwell gave the lecture over 6,000 times to untold numbers of people. It earned over $4,000,000 (about $150,000,000 in today's dollars) all given to youth and education.

"ACRES OF DIAMONDS" is a spiritual book. It is not a "get-rich-quick" guide. Conwell saw that success is a spiritual idea, and is a result of spiritual principles. The 160-page book includes the lecture and biographical material. Here is the original self-motivational message, long lost, now found!

You, too, can find your fortune -- if you know where to look. Let the author point you in the right direction to find your "Acres of Diamonds." There are many opportunities for success today as in Conwell's time, if not more so, because they are found first and foremost in one's own conscience.

Here is a real "must-have" in inspirational books! The ONLY COMPLETE TEXT EDITION.

Anne Hutchinson


ANNE HUTCHINSON: Unsung Heroine of History
by Bianca A. Leonardo and Winnifred K. Rugg

An Incredible Life .... a Tragic Death!


True, Dramatic, Inspiring! If Anne had been a man, she'd be in all the history books.

Her exciting story has been almost forgotten for 350 years! Anne came to America from a comfortable life in England, to settle in rugged, four-year-old Boston. The conditions were extremely harsh. The women, with constant child-bearing, suffered the most.

Spiritually minded, loving Anne became involved in helping the women in the Colony understand "the God of Love, not Law."

Anne's zeal for God's truth in an all-male clergy led to an outright inquisition, and, ultimately, to her excommunication and banishment. Soon thereafter, came her tragic and untimely death, along with her young children.

by Dr. Johanna Brandt

Cancer is the Number Two cause of death in the U.S. A new edition of the "Grape Cure," widely used by holistic health professionals in many countries to fight disease, often in patients with "inoperable cancer." Grapes contain a very powerful antioxidant that protects your body cells from "free radicals." Scientists have given it the name of "proanthocyanidin," but it is not new.

As far back as 1556, books on this wonderful nature cure had been published in various European languages.

Dr. Brandt was diagnosed with cancer in 1916, shortly after her mother died from cancer. Working with her own diet, fasting, etc., she began to see the relationship of the food she ate to the progression or regression of her cancer. It took nine years to achieve her healing. She discovered that a meat diet perpetuates cancer, a vegetarian diet conquers it, and that organic grapes aid healing. She helped others rid themselves of this deadly disease, left her native South Africa to bring her discovery to the U.S., and wrote this book.

She shares her journey back to wellness in this small, yet remarkable book, reprinted because "the need is greater than ever for natural discoveries to reach the people."
