“Jehovah [is] the tribal God of the Jews. Jehovah is not God” (AliceBailey, Esoteric Healing, p. 393).

“Always down the centuries… a divine Son of God has come forth and under many different names. Then the Christ came and apparently left us, with His work unfinished and His vision for mankind not yet consummated. For two thousand years it has seemed as if all His work had been blocked, frustrated and of no avail” (Alice Bailey, From Bethlehem to Calvary, p. 191).

Note: The writings of Alice Bailey have resulted in a number of “New Age” groups. Those based to one degree or another on her writing (all make use of them) include the Arcane School, Meditation Group of the New Age, Full Moon Meditation Groups, School of Esoteric Studies, Arcana Workshops, Aquarian Educational Group and the School of Light and Realization (SOLAR). Robert Assagioli, founder of the Psycho synthesis movement, was the Arcane School representative of Italy for many years (Alice Bailey, The Unfinished Autobiography, p. 224).

His final book, published in July 2014 with Harvest House Publishers (coauthored with John Ankerberg), is especially fitting. How to Know You’re Going to Heaven offers a biblical and personal look at the way God has provided salvation through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) and the confidence the believer can have of eternity with Him in heaven (1 John 5:13). John’s life and work have touched countless others seeking to grow spiritually and better understand the Bible. His friends describe him as genuine, humble, and passionate to share the hope of eternal life with everyone he met. His work will continue through his many books, his online writings at The John Ankerberg Show website (, as well as through the many people John has personally influenced through his ministry.
