KPIX 5 reporter Andria Borba received one of the books and found out what it was all about.

“I had seen a copy of it outside before, so I thought it was my roommate’s,” said Jeff Bee of San Francisco’s Cow Hollow.

The 377-page tome on the past, present and future is a delivery from Remnant Publications, a wing of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

“I thought it was a book and I thought it was interesting, that’s a first. And then I flipped through and realized it was some sort of a bible,” said Felix Louisnji of the Cole Valley neighborhood.

On Remnant’s website, it said the mass mailing cost $250,000 and the church is looking for donations.

As for why we were targeted? The publisher’s website said, “Many of the people of San Francisco may not know it, but they desperately need the eternal hope that Jesus offers.”

“It’s not a bad idea. They can recruit, I mean being gay doesn’t mean you believe in Christ,” Louisnji said.

But, for some in the environmentally conscious Bay Area, the controversy isn’t in the pages of the “crucial end time book,” but where the books will end their time.

The book has also been distributed all over New York City, Charlotte and Washington, DC.
