If you want to get challenged than Jeff's book, Wrecked will do just that. Real people, real places, real life situations of the homeless, down and out is a wake up call to your Christianity and humanity.
Tension always exist. This book opens up your understanding on how to recognize, deal with and cope with those in-between moments in life. funny, witty and thought provoking.
Some say the office of the Apostle ceased with the first century church but that is the furthest thing from the truth.
Our friend Dr. Alan Pateman has written a must read book if you have ever wondered about Apostles.
One of my all time favorite subjects is the BLOOD of CHRIST. It doesn't matter who writes on this subject, I'll read it.
Dr Alan Pateman doesn't disappoint with this one. A must read for all believers...

Understand Your Limits
God has given us boundaries for a reason, to protect us and protect others from us. In todays electronic age boundaries are disappearing daily but without them you are vulnerable to attack from a constant invisible enemy. Leaders need this as well as those you are counseling.
Love is Powerful
There are primarily 5 love languages. All people respond and live by them. God in His ingenuity knew that once we understood these and implemented them towards self and others we would very close to experiencing heaven on earth. This book is a constant reread, to remind me to look for that thing which will give those around me the greatest and deepest amount of love possible. You can live a conflict free life...
Poetry in Action
I have never read such a simple but profound book. In nearly 30 years of ministry there have been a lot of books slid across my desk but none like this. God has given Nicholas Del Sesto the ability to transcribe the four gospels into prophetic prose. It is the same gospels if you were to lay the full edition next to his but Nicholas manages to peel off the layers of words to extract the bare essence of the scriptures below. Never before have I enjoyed reading the gospels like this. It was like reading them afresh for the first time. I highly recommend this as well as any of his other books.

Knowledge is Power
Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe - nothing overshadows it.
* God’s throne is established on His authority.
* God’s authority represents God Himself.
* God alone is authority in all things.
All the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. It is therefore important for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God. God’s authority is absolute, hence we must give Him absolute submission (our heart’s attitude) and absolute obedience (our outward actions). But to His delegated authorities we can render absolute submission, but only relative obedience. For their authorities are circumscribed by the measure of the life of Christ in them. Only when they themselves submit to God’s authority in them are they able to represent God. Hence there is much we have to learn about how to represent God.
If our inner world is in disorder then we will have chaos. If you have ever had internal anarchy happen then you need this book. We can be our ow worst enemies and what we don't know can hurt us. What we do know we can fix, heal, control or just plain throw away. Every person who desires leadership needs to read this.
This book was handed to me in 1993 and it revolutionized my life and that of my ministry forever. When you read this book you may become indignant at what you've been taught as the truth. This book does what scriptures say, You shall know the truth and it shall set you free. Breakthrough the old myths about finances and step over into the area God has always meant for us to live in. I am so glad he obeyed God
and wrote it, My life has been changed reading it.
Apostolic Strategies Affecting Nations presents proven strategies to raise up strong governing churches. These strategies provide the blueprints to raise up breakthrough believers, Senior Pastors, ministry gifts and whole churches according to the New Testament patterns.
Every minister should study this book. It is truly a cutting edge present truth presentation and revelation from the heart and mind of God.
Prophet Tom's Life
Everyone has a story God makes sure of that. In 2001 Father God commissioned Tom to write his.
This book will take you from 1958-1986, roughly thirty years of Tom's life. This book is mind boggling and spell bounding. It is written in a tri format style analytical, metaphorical and allegorically. So no matter your reading style, you will get something out of this book. Great for personal devotion or group study as well.
Let's Mix It Up
I met Tom & Adrienne at a seminar they were holding on step families, conflict and resolution. I was newly married with a 13 year old step daughter. I had read all the conventional books on relationships but natural families are not blended families. The rules are different as I found out the hard way. This book or any of their books are highly recommend for those of you who our involved in step family situations.
This little book found itself into my hands and my heart back in 1987. I was a five year old christian. I had a call on my life to be a an apostle and didn't even know what one was or how to become one. God in his mercy established within my foundation the understanding of this book. This book is not for the faint of heart but for those who are truly seeking to do His will, His way. The Steps of Humility and Pride by St. Bernard of Clairvaux will change your life.
What happens when church doesn't satisfy any longer? Where would you go if that's all you've ever known? This book will make you think. The author was a Pastor who came into Christianity with a vision to make a difference. Years later the politics, the machine called religion and a chance encounter with a man named John changed the course of his life and his thinking. Interesting read. It will challenge you.
I first read Growing in the Prophetic back in the late 90's. It was one of the most practical books I had ever read on the prophetic. Mike Bickle does an incredible job helping to sort out the sometimes spooky spiritual side of ministry. This book will give you clarity, help you become more functional while making your ability to minister more practical. There are some ouch comments as he talks about another minister which I don't condone but over all you'll love this book.
Are we ever really lost?
Henry Van Dyke does an incredible job of creating a tale of not just three wise men looking for the Christ child but four. Yes there was four. We know what happened to the three but what about the other person? Who was he? What happened to him? You'll have to read this book to find out. When you think all is lost and when you have nothing left you may find yourself right on time in the exact place you need to be. You will want to give copies of this to your friends and loved ones.
What Does God Sound Like?
Prophet Kim Clement wrote this incredible book about hearing the sound of His voice. You will laugh, you will cry, you will be amazed it's so easy to hear the sound of God's voice. Kim writes like he talks. This work is prophetic profound and yet so very simple. It's a great read.
You will read this book more than once. If you are called to leadership then this book is a must read. It is the story of three very different kings and how they dealt with the aspect of being broken by the hand of God.
The year was 2010 and I was just coming off a year sabbatical when the Lord led me to this book. During my year of fasting and praying I had encounters with the Lord, saw things in heaven and so many other things which were not confirmed until... This book shocked me because many of her descriptions were identical to things I saw. I checked my journals against many of her encounters and found that God confirms His word through the most unlikely sources.
It's a good read. It will challenge you and give you hope. It will definitely make you think.
A Game Changer
I can't believe this book is celebrating 20 years. I purchased it new and actually still have my original edition. If you are married or considering getting married, read this book. It will be a game changer on not only on how you see your relationship to each other but to love itself.
This book will challenge both of you.
Tears Will Flow
I am the furthest thing from a novel junkie or an author groupie but Paul Young has written another incredible book. Leave it to Paul to bring to light topics and subjects that most if not all mainstream religious churches and leaders avoid. Paul has a solid grasp on theology but it's his love for The Father, The Son & Holy Spirit which always shine though. His writing style is unique and his word pictures will make you laugh and cry a lot.
Anti Christ Wisdom
I picked this book up years ago and I wasn't ready. It has been slid back across the table towards me and this time I get it. Time and maturity cultivate wisdom. This book is a fascinating read about how the enemy speaks and looks at us. First published in 1942 and it's become a classic.
If you love reading scripture then you'll love this one. This bible literally has 26 translations under one hood. You no longer need multiple versions. It's all here.
Prophet Tom has been using The Word as a study book for years. This version is not for the faint of heart nor the novice. If you can afford it, you'll have it for life.
I first read this book back in 1987 and it challenged me as well as changed me.
When one goes through a life altering experience it would be natural to hide, to seek being alone. God in his infinite mercy allowed me time to be alone but He would not let me hide. In my quiet times of healing, this book challenged me to break through the wall of separation that I had already built.
A must read for those who wish to be alone or you're already there.
Stephen Skelton has written a book about a fictional character named, Superman. In today's world many people think Jesus is a fictional character. This book gives incredible insight to the conception and the manifestation of a character we've all come to love. If you are a Jesus fan or a fan of superman then you'll love this book. The parallels and comparisons are incredible and to think we always thought superman was fictionally based.
Fiction At It's Best
I'm not a fiction reader so this book came as a surprise to me. In it's day it was controversial to say you were reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. To think a custodian wrote it is amazing because many well educated people shy away from the topics this book easily and effortlessly discuss and uncover. It is fiction folks but you may not think so when you're finished.
Father God Loves Us
I found this book about six months ago while in a second hand thrift store. I love browsing through the used book & music section. While I was looking this book seemed to jump out at me. Holy Spirit said buy it. I knew of the author, Gene Edwards. I've read some of his other works but not this particular book. I must say although it started off slow by the time you finish it this book will pull you in and squeeze your heart. Father God does love His creation and this little gem of a book does a wonderful job describing that.
I first encountered this book back in 1988. To be honest a girl said if you want to understand me you'll have to read this book. I did read the book. I never got to date the girl.
I have read and reread this so many times over the years that I had to buy a hardbound edition and copies for family and friends because they kept taking my copy. If you love allegorical reading then this book will bless you tremendously.
Why Did You Do That?
I saw her in person. I bought the dvd and have used it many times to minister to people. Now it's in book form. Betrayal is a big thing and it happens every day, to all of us. We are just now aware of it and the toll it takes on us. This book will open your eyes and allow you to get that healing you need. Tremendous book. Worth every penny.
The Ultimate Journey
This book is not for the faint of heart. It was written more than 700 years ago and is almost 900 pages in length if you read the version with side notes. If you love virtue, passion, theology and adventure wrapped up in story form then you'll enjoy this book.
The original is written in Italian but I found a great translation in the English language by the late John Ciardi.
A must Read
First published in 1678.
If you are a devout Christian who sometimes doesn't understand the journey you're on, then welcome to the club. This book will be soul searching, spirit challenging and read with a sense of awe. A timeless classic, a masterpiece of literature.
Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan
A New View
Brene' Brown has written a book that will make you think, it will make you cry, it might even have you upset as your eyes are opened seemingly for the first time. This is a non religious book but then all books do not have to be about religion.
If you are in need of mending and enjoy a deep thought provoking read concerning matters of self then you'll love this book.
She has great resources, other books and a great weekly live blog.
Someone recommended this book for another person I know but I read it first.
I don't suggest books I haven't read first, ever.
Musicians & Ministers Are Alike
I have just started reading this book but from what I can tell it's going to be a slow read. It's 400 pages and thought provoking. Zorro the drummer has documented the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of the music industry. His slant is real, his view is objective and the book is truly inspirational. I have been in the creative arts in the church for years. This book is God's GPS system for every artist who has a dream. A must read...
Dr. Alan Pateman has done it again. His latest book, "Why War" is destined to be a must read among those who need to understand spiritual warfare and the armor of God. This book is full of insight and wisdom that can only be taught from a man of his stature. You earn what you learn and you share what is given.
Life & Death
Bound together between two covers. This small book was thought a doable read as a younger Christian. Now in my later years I am attempting to pick it up once again. The shear weight of the words and wisdom captured for the reader is no doubt equal to the weight of the cross and not so easy to bare.
Life is in the Blood
This book was handed to me in 2001. I was health conscience but not a fanatic. After reading this book, implementing some basic dietary changes I was completely healed of a life long battle of hypo glycemia.
There was nothing more confusing or embarrassing than being a minister of the gospel and seeing everyone being healed around me. But God in His sovereign timing knew this book would come into my hands.
A Great Bible Study
I have a had this book for years and the title says it all. This book is broken down into five sections with a total of twenty four chapters for study and review. This book is for those who want to stop being defeated by the enemy and are willing to pay the price of reading, studying and implementing what you've gained through the whole journey. It's well worth the price.
My First Bible
This version of the bible was given to me from my grandmother.
It was my first love and still is. Ferrar Fenton did an excellent job in his translating. This modern version was originally written between 1853-1903. Yes that is correct. Mr Fenton spent 50 years of his life devoted to this work. If you wish to find out more click image.
