***** 23 minutes in Hell, one man's purported vision of his vision of the realities of hell. Many will dismiss this outright, but I am not so sure. Everything described in this book has the ring of truth. You decide.

Bill Wiese

Richard Stearns

*** The Explicit Gospel, a call to true Christianity, to know the gospel explicitly, and to unite the church on the amazing grounds of the good news of Jesus!

*** Cults in America, Programmed for Paradise, a brilliant study of the rise of pseudo religions in America.

*** An Encyclopedia of Cults & New Religions, up to date facts on the major religions of the current day. A book that will be quickly outdated, as there is always another egocentric leader with the grand vision of gathering a bunch of folks around him in awe and obeyness. But! At the time, a necessarily good read!

John Ankerberg & John Weldon

**** Facing Terror, the true story of how an American couple paid the ultimate price for their love of the muslim people.

Carrie McDonnall, with Kristin Billerbeck

***** Escape, the story of one incredible courageous and determined lady who managed by using her wits and God's help, I believe, to escape this polygamous Mormon snake pit forever. In her words, "I was born into a radical polygamist cult. At eighteen, I became the fourth wife of a fifty-year-old man. I had eight children in fifteen years. When our leader began to preach the apocalypse, I knew I had to get them out." A must read for those with a heart for the folks trapped in this perverted value system.

Carolyn Jessop, with Laura Palmer

***** Exodus, an incredible book that left me indelibly marked. A towering novel of the twentieth century's most dramatic geopolitical event. Leon Uris magnificently portrays the birth of a new nation in the midst of enemies--the beginning of an earthshaking struggle f the Jewish nation for simple recognition as a people. Here is the tale that swept the world with its fury: the story of an American nurse, an Israeli freedom fighter caught up in a glorious, heartbreaking, triumphant era. Here is Exodus --one of the great best-selling novels of all time.

**** Selling Satan, the tragic history of Mike Warnke. For a considerable period, Mike Warnke made a whole lot of money off of Christians, but using stories of past satanism as a tool to engender the sympathies of the group he was selling to. For a while it worked well... until it because obvious that he was living like a king off the proceeds of folks that were not. The bottom dropped out of the Warnke ministries, and he has thankfully not resurfaced.

Mike Hertenstein & Jon Trott

**** Another Gospel, a great compendium of the world's cults from Mormonism through to New Age. All in all, 13 cults are discected and boiled down to their unbiblical roots.

**** Born Again, In 1974 Charles W. Colson pleaded guilty to Watergate-related offenses and, after a tumultuous investigation, served seven months in prison. In his search for meaning and purpose in the face of the Watergate scandal, Colson penned Born Again. This unforgettable memoir shows a man who, seeking fulfillment in success and power, found it, paradoxically, in national disgrace and prison.
Charles Colson

**** Life Sentence, The sequel to Colson's best-seller, Born Again, this book reveals how he began a new life and his struggle to begin a new ministry.
Charles Colson

**** Loving God, In his magnificent classic, the late Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian.
Charles Colson

****** The Harbinger, a beyond incredible book, that if true, and I absolutely believe it is true, we in N. America are in for some hard times at the hand of God. One of only two books I have ever rated 6 Stars! A MUST READ!!!!!
Jonathan Cahn

****** The Shemitah. The companion book to the Harbinger. A continuation to the premise that we are following in Israel's footsteps in ignoring God's warnings, and Isaiah 9:10 is going to become very real to us at some point in the future. Keep your eyes and ears on September 13, 2015. Another MUST READ!
Jonathan Cahn

**** A Grief Observed. An examination of C.S. Lewis' angry reaction to the death of his wife, Joy Gresham. The book is a testament to coming to the grips of God's not always comfortable requirements that you face his decisions with faith and equanimity. Which Lewis does, eventually, but he has to travel a hard road of anger first.
C.S. Lewis

**** Mere Christianity. One of Lewis' best loved books, a critical examination of the Christian faith. A required read for every Christian.
C.S. Lewis

**** The Most Reluctant Convert. An inside look at life of one of the greatest writers of the Christian faith, and the life journey that led him to the faith from professed athesim. In interesting insight to the life of this stalwart of the faith.
David C. Downing

*** Prophecies: For the Era of Muslim Terror. An interesting look at Old Testament prophecy and how it applies to today's events.
Rabbi Menachem Kohen

**** The Invisible Girls. A wonderful and engaging story. This lady, after nearly dying in her twenties of breast cancer, and flailing around from that and a failed relationship, relocates to Portland, OR. On a bus ride in Portland, she encounters a Somali woman and her children. Her subsequent attempts to help this struggling family survive in a culture they don't understand, becomes a lifeline for Sarah herself. Beautiful read, and God makes an appearance all though the book. Sarah Thebarge.


*** I Used to Have Answers, Now I have Kids, a funny treatise on the difficulties and challenges of raising children.
Phil Callaway

***** Bruchko, an incredible tale of pain, deprivation, stress, torture and determination. a story of Bruce Olson, who was without question called by God to reach out to the Motilone indians in Colombia, a group of savages who were notable for their penchant for killing anyone who ventured into their territory, and how God so intervened at just the right moments for Bruce to reach them for Christ, and bring them to a saving knowledge, and to an interface with the outside world.
Bruce Olson

**** The Happening, a gripping story of the murder of several Amish school children by an angry and demented indivual with his own axe to grind, who chose to grind it on female, Amish children. The most notable part of the book is the way the Amish practiced their value-system in complete forgiveness. A wonderful read.
Harvey Yoder

***** The Explicit Gospel, an interestering and a bit of a different take on the word of God that puts his justice up there where it should be, instead of shuttled off into a corner of the LUV discussion. A great read.
Matt Chandler

***** In Satan's Footsteps. A book examining the signs of our times, and exposing the god-haters and cults for what they are... following in Satan's Footsteps. March on folks.
Theodore Shoebat, 16yo

***** For God, or For Tyranny. Theodore Shoebat, along with his very talented son, explain the reasons why the rejection of God can only have one outcome, and that will be tyranny. We are already experiencing much of it in our so-called 'free country'.
Walid Shoebat & Theodore Shoebat.

***** Blood on the Altar. An explanation why the Christian will eventually be fighting his brother Christian as our society continues to free-fall into evil and corruption. Remembering that none other than J. Vernon McGee once noted that when persecution comes to the Christian, it will come from the mainline denominations. And it certainly will.
Thomas Horn.

***** Beyond Prison Walls. An incredible story of corrupt and manipulating prosecuting attorneys that on purjured testimony, put an innocent man into prison for 15 years. This is a story of faith and forebearance and the way he finally manages to get back into civil society.
Jeris Bragan.

**** Healing the Masculine Soul. An interesting approach to restoring men's perception of what manhood acutally means in the church. Highly recommended read.
Gordon Dalbey.


***** Same Kind of Different As Me. A wonderful story about a beautiful Christian lady that takes on a ministry at her local Mission, and as a result befriends and essentially rescues a black street man, brings him into the knowledge of the Lord, and in the end result, he ends up ministering to her and her family as she lay dying of cancer. I don't rate many books with 5 stars, but this one probably should have had 6.
Ron Hall & Denver Moore

**** Sacred Acre. The story of a dedicated coach and Christian, who profoundly affected the lives of his students and nearly everyone he touched. An engaging read and a classic demonstration of what one committed individual can accomplish in a community. Sadly after a lifetime of service, he was murdered by a student with profound mental problems, one that the coach had repeatedly attempted to help.
Mark Tabb


*** Laughter Therapy. A book of vignettes to lighten lighten the Christian woman's heart.
Tina Krause.


* Favorite Father Brown Stories. A series of Christian stories in the lighter vein.
G.K. Chesterton

** Pagan Christianity. A book (one of many), that attempts to make the case that we're doing it all wrong. We may be, but not because we are not marching in lockstep with the founding fathers of our belief system. Tiresome reading.
Frank Viola & George Barna.

**** One More Mission. If you're thinking, what's this doing here? Then maybe you ought to read it. A relating of Oliver's trip back to Vietnam 25 years after he was there leading a platoon in 1968. This chronicles his discovery of, and participation in the various ministries active in this war-torn country.
Oliver L. North.
