July 1, 1948 marked the beginning of the ministry of Truth For Today, Inc. Mr. Oscar M. Baker, the founding editor, had a deep concern for neighbors and friends, having been blessed and encouraged in his studies of the Scriptures by applying the divinely given study principle of "Right Division", and he desired to share those blessings with others. His method of sharing those blessings would be the little Bible study paper known as Truth For Today, and that is still at the center of the ministry. His first issue was only about 150 copies. He mailed it to all on the township tax rolls.
Today we print over 2500 copies of each issue of Truth Today, not a large number, but the seed of truth is being widely sown. It is presently being sent to all 50 states and to 61 other nations. Through the paper, and now our web site, we make available the writings of Bible teachers such as Mr. E. W. Bullinger, Mr. Charles H. Welch, Mr. Stuart Allen, and other men of GOD who have lived and labored faithfully, honoring the Lord's command in II Timothy 2:15 and Philippians 1:10 to "Rightly Divide" the Word of Truth.
After almost four decades of faithful service in the ministry of Truth For Today, Mr. Baker fell asleep in the Lord and it became necessary to move the ministry to its present location in Lafayette, Indiana. The heart of the ministry is still the Bibles, books, and other study aids featured in the paper and on our book list. The loving generosity of the many who share our concern make it possible for us to offer Truth For Today free of charge to anyone, anywhere, upon request. We also do what we can among the needy to assist the serious student and teacher with books and Bibles featured on our book list.
Through our web site we are now able to offer new ways to expand our small ministry by offering different articles, book reviews, and our current book list. The editor of Truth for Today is Robert Guenther. If you like the articles and book reviews and would like a copy of Truth For Today, or you would like to have your name added to our mailing list, you can contact us at the address below or by e-mail. Remember, Truth For Today is mailed out bi-monthly to anyone, anywhere upon request free of charge. Please write or e-mail us with any questions, concerns, or comments you may have.
