Andaman and Nicobar Islands, popularly known as ‘Kala Pani’ comprise of 572 islands, only 36 being inhabited.The early history of these islands of exquisite beauty is shrouded in mystery. Occupied by East India Company towards the close of the 18th century, they were used by the British for a penal settlement after 1857. Prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment were kept in a cellular jail. The real inhabitants of these islands are, however, some aboriginal tribes like the Great Andamanese, the Onge, Jarawas, Sentinelese and Shompens, whose past is mysterious and future uncertain. The Japanese had made all preparations for the occupation of the islands a decade before actual occupation on 23rd March 1942. New hopes and desires of independence were enkindled in the minds of the islanders. However, the duration of this period of friendship was extremely short, and people were soon caught in a grip of terror, resulting in atrocities, round-ups and mass murders. Netaji's visit also could not improve the situation The nuclear attacks brought Japan to her knees and the Instrument of Surrender was signed at Port Blair on 9th October 1945. As a result of the war-crime courts, out of 16 accused, 6 were executed at Singapore and the rest were sentenced to various terms ranging from 7 to 25 years. The islands now enjoy the status of a union territory.

[Publisher's note: This written statement was penned over a 100 years ago.] The following was written nearly six years ago It was only after much hesitation and prayer, that, at the repeated requests of some esteemed Christians, and after a careful revision, I have resolved to commit these notes to print. I confide in the well-known forbearance of my dear fellow Christians in this country, as to the imperfections of expression. The twenty-third Psalm has been so interwoven with the whole of my Christian course (of more than 26 years), and our gracious Shepherd has, from this precious portion of His Pasture, whenever I turned to it, so often blessed my soul, that I could resist no longer the desire to communicate to others what He has been pleased to give to me. The dispensational side of our Psalm I have only occasionally touched upon, as the chief object of it is the feeding of the soul on Christ. Consequently even the great Christian principles of truth, foreshadowed and embedded in this Psalm, are considered, only as far as they concern the flock of God; for instance, the question of worship at the Lord's Table, where we feed upon His death, when "We sing of the Shepherd that died, That died for the sake of the flock." For, however important a place the Church, as such, may occupy at that blessed Table of our Lord, and in His counsels, yet this portion of divine truth would be out of place in our Psalm. May God keep us from growing into cool and enlightened churchmen, to the neglect of the pastoring of the flock, for whom the Good Shepherd died.

Once described as “the most exhaustive treatise on the ‘Kingdom of God’ ever written, the late Rev. George N. H. Peters, the author of “The Theocratic Kingdom,” left many unpublished personal bible studies. These recently discovered handwritten documents are now being meticulously transcribed and prepared for publication. What makes these 100 year old studies unique is the straightforward grammatical viewpoint taken by Rev Peters towards interpretation, that the language of the Bible does not require spiritualization or mysticism to be understood, that such unjustified additions actually confuse and mislead the reader. The application of these practical Rules of Interpretation, as seen in the recently published “Testimony of Jesus” and “Testimony of John,” gives the Gospel of Luke a clear, fresh new voice given from the viewpoint of an contemporary Man who was neither an Apostle or Disciple of the Lord during his earthly ministry. The Rev. Peters clearly exposes the simple interconnected design of the book, a testimony to the true identity of Jesus as the covenanted and predicted Messiah. The Study focuses ONLY on the unique accounts of Luke not contained in the other three Gospels. Every instance in each chapter of Luke's testimony confronts the reader with this most important distinction. By the end of Luke's testimony the evidence is so overwhelming, the distinctions so clear that only one realization remains (the reason Luke wrote the book in the first place) that All of the (past-present-future) Biblical prophecies are to be fulfilled in the person of this Messiah, ONLY the Messiah has the God-given authority and supernatural power to succeed in these appointed tasks, and most importantly, that Jesus and the Messiah are one and the same person. In the plainest manner possible then, Luke spreads within the grasp of the reader the heart and soul of the Bible, the past and future hopes of mankind in this one simple truth. Luke like Jesus would ask "Believest thou this?"
