A public talk titled "The World Has Ended; Millions Now Living May Never Die" was first delivered on February 24, 1918 in Los Angeles, California. Five weeks later, on March 31, 1918 the title was changed to indicate absolute certainty: "The World Has Ended; Millions Now Living Will Never Die." The public talk continued to be delivered under that same title until 1925. The material was published as this book in 1920.
This book may be of interest to students of human psychology and students of religious movements, particularly millennialist apocalyptic, "prophetic" religious movements.

enlarged duplicate of the original publication.
Once hard to find, this reprinting makes this historic book available at a reasonable price.

"Proof that the world will end in 1925. Millions to be immortal" The Watch Tower Bible and Track Society, Inc had some discouraging times for any business during the second decade of the 1900's. The predictions for the year 1914 that the corporation had been printing since Charles Russell helped Nelson Barbour publish the book Three Worlds, in 1877, had passed unfulfilled. Charles Russell had died in 1916. The followers of the group split after the book titled The Finished Mystery was printed without approval or input of the directors appointed by Charles Russell. The surviving group needed a new challenge. Millions Now Living Will Never Die, provided that challenge. First delivered as a talk and then published in print, the book was a success . . . until it's bold predictions for 1925 also passed. Rutherford claims in the book that the world had "legally" ended in 1914 and that millions of people then living would never die. The new date for it all is 1925. He... More > writes his thesis like a legal brief. He presented his case as a claim, he presented evidence, he challenged the clergy, he insulted big business and wall street, and he laid out his prediction for serial miracles in 1925. I obtained my personal original copy from a man who's father had bought an original copy from door to door book sales people in the 1920's and joined them after reading it. The reprint copy of Millions Now Living Will Never Die is a very high quality copy. It's better than my original and easier to read due to the large print format. I appreciated reading the "Bible Citations in Substantiation" compiled by Clayton Woodworth in readable print size. The reprint is nice looking, affordable, and a valuable aid to anyone interested in the Rutherford era of the Bible Student movement. I highly recommend it. Gary Busselman< Less
