Revolution in World Missionsby KP Yohannan. The Outreach power of the original Christian Church is being repeated today.   Riveting reading: Free book sent on request.
Angels On Assignmentby Pastor Roland Buck. Fascinating account of Pastor Buck's personal encounters with angels and their messages for the world. Controversial - of course. But to suggest that God's activity ended with the writing of the last chapter of Revelation about 90 AD is not only arrogant - it puts Him under the limitation of our own human perception. The test for credibility is not whether the contents of Buck's discussions with angels are to be found in the Bible - that is nonsensical. The test should surely be whether the contents can be shown to be consistent with the relevant scriptures - which incidentally are fully quoted right throughout the book.
Agents Of The Apocalypseby Dr David Jeremiah. A great outreach resource which discusses fully the end time roles of the agents identified in the books of Daniel and Revelation. Interleaved with fictional stories that illustrate the working out of scripture.
Doing Business God's Wayby Dennis Peacocke. Not just a book for business people. God is in business, as Jesus was fully aware at the age of 12 years. Many of the parables of Jesus are based on business principles, and the sooner we learn and apply the principles on which God works, the better for us, our lives and businesses, and for our nations and the world..
Where God Was Bornby Bruce Feiler. This book "combines the adventure of a wartime chronicle, the excitement of an archaeological detective story, and the insight of personal spiritual exploration. Taking readers to biblical sites not seen by Westerners for decades, Feiler's journey uncovers little-known details about the common roots of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and affirms the importance of the Bible in today's world."
The Mystery of the Last Supper: Reconstructing the Final Days of Jesus by Colin Humphreys, Professor and Director of Research at Cambridge University, UK.
"With the clearest possible presentation of fresh evidence and good historical imagination, Colin Humphreys here tackles this problem in a completely fresh manner. His suggestions are likely to have a significant impact both on scholarly appraisal and on the regular Christian appreciation of these climactic events of the faith." - Hugh G. M. Williamson, University of Oxford.
The World Christ Knew by Anthony Deane. This is a highly useful book that offers an excellent exposition of the social, political and religious conditions in Palestine at the time of Christ's life. It is a wonderful guide to understanding the factors that Jesus had to face in developing His ministry, and the issues that shaped the way He presented His parables and teachings - essential reading.
Grace Works by Dudley Hall. "Letting God rescue you from empty religion". An outstanding teaching on how the grace of God (if we will let it) heals the orphaned spirit and offers the opportunity for man to live out his design in a wonderful mutual relationship with God.
Life After Life by Raymond A Moody Jr, MD. A compilation of over 100 accounts of near-death and after- death experiences, all the more valuable because these accounts have not been induced by hypnosis or any other extraneous influence.
