CCG publishes bookabout Sabbatarians

WODEN, Australia--The Christian Churches of God, based here, is accepting advance orders for The Sabbatarians of Siebenburgen, by Samuel Kohn, a rabbi, which concerns the history of the Sabbath-keeping church in Transylvania after the Protestant Reformation.

Rabbi Kohn (1841-1920) deals with an element of the Sabbatarian church and its subsequent conversion to Judaism.

"The importance of the work is that it explains what our early doctrines and practices were and it will help our people to come to grips with their history," said Wade Cox, coordinator of the CCG. "It may force a reevaluation of some Sabbatarian denominations."

Bonne Rook and Thomas McElwain translated the book, which is available for $20. For more information write the CCG at P.O. Box 369, Woden, A.C.T. 2606, Australia.
