THE POLICY OF
THE BEREAN TAPE MINISTRY
"Commissioned to distribute the audio tape library
of the late Ferrell E. Griswold"
We want to express our appreciation to the multitudes
of you that have shown interest in and support of the work
here at the Berean Tape Ministry. This is very encouraging
to us as we labor to promote the Lord's wonderful Gospel
taught on these tapes by His servant, Ferrell E. Griswold.
Most of you ask what it costs to purchase the tapes.
In answer to your question, we have stated below our policy
on how we operate this ministry.
From the very beginning of the Berean Tape Ministry, back
in 1986, we have freely given the tapes to all that desired
them. We never even asked for a donation. There was no need
to because our Lord had provided us with the financial means
to operate in this manner; As the Gospel is freely offered
- the tapes were also freely offered. It is our heart's desire
that we will never have to put a price on these tapes - but
that we will always be able to offer them to you freely.
Since then, the Lord has opened many doors enabling us to
dispense literally thousands of tapes going into thirty countries.
He also allowed us to complete large projects providing tapes
for several thousand young men studying for the ministry in
seminary. These projects were very costly but we feel that
they were well worth the effort. But, it did take a
toll on our financial reserves and there were also other factors
that we had to face concerning the operation of the ministry.
On April 1, 1995 the postal rates increased 70% and that was
a big factor and still continues to be so. Also, the cost
of equipment and supplies steadily increase. We would like
for you to know that no one here receives a salary. All workers
volunteer their services because of their love for our Lord
and for you. Therefore, in consideration of all these
present circumstances we simply put it this way. If you feel
that you have been or are now being benefited by this ministry,
and the Lord should put it upon your heart to help us, we
would be most grateful for your help in sending a contribution
to assist us in the continuation of this work.
limit your order to twelve tapes or less **
** Also, we ask that you limit your

To order, please send us
an e-mail with your post office address and tape numbers.
Our e-mail address is included on each tape index page as
a hyperlink - so you can just click on it from there.
Any tape number that is
underlined with a blue hyperlink is also available as a CD,
and download as MP3. Please specify in your order whether
you would like cassettes or CDs.
We would like to point out to you that the tapes in our library
contain the messages that Dr. Griswold preached in his own
church and other churches as well. Sometimes the quality of
the original recording was poor and it shows up in the tape.
Remember that our tapes go back as far as the 1950's and the
recording equipment was not as excellent as it is today. However,
most all of them are very easy to listen to and we are so
very grateful that our Lord has preserved every last one of
them!! It is our prayer that the truth taught on these tapes
will indeed prove to be a great blessing to your heart.
