Schoettle Publishing Company refused to comment on The Selected Writings of A. Edwin Wilson, which contains a denunciation of the civil rights movement and a diatribe against desegregation. The book is featured in its catalog. Asked if the company supports Wilson’s racial theories, Publisher Lewis Schoettle wrote by e-mail, “The editor of the Wilson book is: Arlen Chitwood. You might want to ask the EDITOR…your questions.”
Schoettle (pronounced “shuttle”) is an “extension” of InTheBeginning.org ministries.
Earlier in the week, KingdomExclusion.com published an article about Wilson’s racial theories, featuring a response from Chitwood, who compiled and edited the book.
Promotional literature at SchoettlePublishing.com, borrowing from Chitwood’s introduction, describes Wilson as “one of the great Bible teachers of our times.” And a featured customer comment exclaims, “Brother Wilson’s book is a jewel to the Christian layman. This one book has provided insight and truths previously not revealed in full to me. I never cease to turn to it for short readings as well as long studies of subjects it contains. This book is the one I use to give as a gift to those God leads me to fellowship with regarding kingdom truths. THIS BOOK NEVER GATHERS DUST!” (emphasis in the original).
Subsequent inquiries have not been returned.
