The Marked Bible – Book Info

by Charles Taylor

An amazing story that starts off as a miraculous tale of the power of prayer and a mother’s love — then ends with a whirlwind of powerful apologetics explaining the Biblical truths of the Seventh-day Sabbath, with point-by-point refutations of common “Sunday worship” arguments. A thrilling book, my two sons really enjoyed it too!

Free pdf/epub version available for viewing/download at or through Harvestime Print book available for purchase through the Amazing Facts Bookstore or the Adventist Book Center (128 pages paperback). Kindle version available through

The book is apparently published in Spanish (“Por Sendas Extraviadas”) and Russian (“Библия с пометками”) but I have not been able to find them for purchase. If you find these translations in PDF format please let me know! 🙂

When Harold Wilson found a Bible hidden away in his sailor’s chest, he flung the book over the ship’s railing and into the sea. Harold would have nothing to do with the Bible his mother had so lovingly marked in hopes that he would read its pages and turn from his life of crime and vice. But like Jonah the runaway prophet, Harold couldn’t run from God, no matter how hard he tried.

The classic story of a mother’s love, a rebellious son, and the transforming power of God’s Word. With the drama of a trans-Pacific Ocean voyage as a backdrop, the “marked Bible” takes center stage in the lives of Harold and his traveling companions as a strange preacher begins to reveal a forgotten truth from its pages. The entire ship is in an uproar, and soon lives will be changed forever.

An electrifying story of what can happen when sincere hearts pursue God’s truth, no matter the cost.

This little work is a composite life picture, not unreal, of the struggle of souls enmeshed in sin and prejudice, for light and truth. He shows the wisdom of the humble disciple and the power of the Word to lead the soul through it all to restful triumph in Christ. There is not a phase of life presented in this booklet against the truth of God, or that has not been witnessed over and over in the great throngs of humanity.

  1. Hi there,
    I stumbled across your blog while looking at book review stuff and I was wondering if you might be interested in a free digital copy of my book Life on Mission @ Work in exchange for an honest review and rating on amazon and (if you were so inclined, a blog post sharing your thoughts but that’s not required). It’s a short mini-book (50 pages) and I’m just looking to get some feedback on it and help share it a bit. Totally understand and respect if that’s not something you’re into or want to do. Just figured I would ask. Thank you for your time. Hope you have an amazing day!


  2. I want to order 50 of the Marked Bibles . Sister Zella from our church gave me 4 and it was so wonderful that I want to order some to give out to family, friends and anyone who will accept it.
    May God Bless your ministry for souls, sister Edith
