BEFORE THE FLAMES BY ANTHONY HIBBERT, Ph.D.
WAS DAVID KORESH?
WHAT HAPPENED AT WACO, TX?
At the beginning of a new millennium, there are episodes which may be left in the past, once our questions are answered. The 51 day standoff of Branch Davidians Seventh Day Adventists at their headquarters near Elk Texas right outside of Waco, which ended in the death of four Federal Agents and eighty Davidians, seventeen of whom were children is one such episode.
The media’s sensational coverage of the entire event told much yet left many questions unanswered...who are Davidian Seventh Days Adventists? When did Davidian’s step upon America’s stage of religions? Where did they come from? Who was David Koresh? How can we prevent future tragedies like the torching near Waco.
In Before the Flames, Dr. A. Anthony Hibbert reveals a chronology of events that led to the Waco tragedy. He interviewed the few remaining original pioneers of the Davidian movement, David Koresh and some branch believers, to produce the only book that will accurately answer the questions that exist today.
A Davidian Seventh Day Adventist minister, Dr. Hibbert’s knowledge will provide a deeper insight into what happened in Texas and how it could have been avoided.
There is renewed interest in the entire affair while the trial is going on.
Before the Flames is a must read for all seeking the truth.
