We're living in a time when there is a maifest crisis of worship in the church, a rebellion among people who find church less than meaningful. They're bored. Dr. R. C. Sproul searches the Scriptures to show us how God Himself designed worship to give His people a taste of heaven. God intends worship to be an unforgetable encounter between Himself and His people--a joyous experience engaging the worshiper's entire being."

Beyond The Norm by Norm Miller
"The amazing story of a traveling salesman who went the extra mile to become Chairman of Interstate Batteries. Over 35 year4s, Norm Miller built Interstate into the premier company it is today and he wrote this book because he wants to tell the story of how it all came about. He wants his readers to draw some help from it for the living of the rich, full life God intends. Chuck Colson said 'America would be a better nation if there were more CEO's like Norm Miller. His deep faith in God is not only the handbook for his personal life, but it permeates every phase of his company which is operated on Biblical principles." 

Choosing Forgiveness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
"It's time to get your life back. You may remember the moment--the time of day, the look in the other person's eye--when you were hurt. When your hopes and dreams were damaged by someone you trusted. And since then your life has been put on hold, sabotaged by harbored resentment, dreams of revenge, or perhaps indiffence and numbness--left you with a knot in your stomach and a dull ache in your heart. There are no magic words or secret formulas but there are biblical principles that can help you break free. Author DeMoss uncovers the promises in God's Word and shows us how to put God's grace and mercy into practice. It could save your life. Break free! Choose forgiveness."

Created For Commitment by A. Wetherall Johnson
"This is the fascinating life story of Wetherell Johnson and the remarkable ministry she founded, Bible Study Fellowship. From its humble beginnings in 1952 as a study group of just 5 women led by Miss Johnson, BSF has grown into a worldwide organization studying God's Word. God prospered this ministry and made BSF known for its careful study methods, astonishingly effective organizational style and especially for the Bible study notes written by Miss Johnson which are read daily all over the globe. See how God rescued her from agnosticism, delivered her from a Japanese prison camp and gave her the strength and wisdom to lead millions into a deeper knowledge of Jesus Christ."

Dead For Nothing? by Phil Pringle
"We are born with a bias toward doing wrong and moving away from God.  The cross presents us with the most powerful and enormous work of God in the earth. To get back to the cross, is to get back to an amazing life, based on the death and ressurection of Jesus, rather than the eforts of man. When we are born again, we receive a bias toward God. Then, our faith begins to acknowledge truth rather than facts. There is more to the cross than we realize. The cross presents us with the singularly most powerful and enormous work of God in the earth. Dr. Phil Pringle is pastor of a major church in Sidney, Australia."

Discover God Study Bible by Dr. Bill Bright
Bill Bright, one of my heroes of the faith, said, "you can trace all of our human problems to our view of God. The most important thing we can teach another Believer is who God is." I was so exited when I learned that his wife and partner in establishing Campus Crusade For Christ had decided to publish his personal study bible with all its notations and the lessons Bill Bright had learned during 50 years of ministry. Lessons that enabled him to live supernaturally, empowered by the Spirit of God. The result was Campus Crusade for Christ in 191 countries, The Jesus Film viewed by more than 5 billion people and The Four Spiritual Laws and his intimate and powerful relationship with the living God.

Epicenter by Joel Rosenberg
Epicenter is the factual and scriptural basis of all Joel Rosenberg's popular novels: The Last Jihad; The Last Days; The Ezekiel Option and The Copper Scroll. He looks at both the recent history, the future of the Middle East and world politics through the "Third Lense" of Scripture. He applies the prophecy of Ezekiel, Isaiah, Joel, Amos and Jeremiah to confirm that we entered the Last Days when Israel was reconstituted with the capture of Jerusalem. As a Messianic Jew, Rosenberg shows us how prphecy is coming together for the War of Gog and MaGog wher the Lord Himself will preserve Israel. Then the Babylon of Revelation will rise from the desert of Iraq and the Rapture will open the way for M

Fight Like A Girl by Lisa Bevere
"Today's twisted pictures of gender roles create confusion over how a woman should define herself. How can a woman feel good about being female when society is constatly dictaiting otherwise? Learn how to  discern between God's ideas on femininity and man's? Lisa Bevere implores us to embradce the differences between the sexes instead of trying to eradicate them. Lisa challenges women to accept and celebrate themselves as God made them--their feminiity is their greatest stren

Foxes Christian Martyrs by John Foxe
"John Foxe completed his Masters at Oxford in 1543. He studied the history of the martyrs until he was forced to leave England and flee to Switzerland under the persecution of Mary Queen of Scots. In many parts of the world today, experiencing suffering and tribulation for your beliefs is still a dailyh part of life. For most of us, this is thankfully not the case. And yet, our Lord warns us of the troubles still to come, and knowledge of the history of Christian persecution is valuable preparation. Reading this book may not be a pleasant experience. It is, however, a valuable one. Foxe's book was one of the most popular books for Christians to read in the 16th Century." 

Godless: The Church of Liberalism by Ann Coulter
"If a Martian landed and set out to determine America's official state religion, he would have to conclude it is liberalism, while Christianity and Judaism are prohibited by law" and politial correctness. "Many Americans are outraged by liberal hostility to traditional religion. But as Ann Coulter reveals, to focus solely on the Left's attacks on our Judeo-Christian tradition is to miss a larger point: liberalism is a religion -- a godless one. And, it is now enthroned as the state religion of this country. Though liberaism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, it bears all the attributes of a religion. Coulter throws open the doors of the Church of Liberalism, showing us its sacrements,  holy writ, martyrs, clergy, churches and doctrine."

In Search of Temple Treasures by Randall Price
"The search for the Ark of the Covenant has fired the imaginations of archeologist and students of prophecy through the ages. Could the discovery of the Ark and other priceless Temple treasures be the match that lights the final rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem? Dr. Price will take you on a remarkable expedition into the Ark's mysterious past, its explosive significance today and its implications in the timing of last days's events. Meticulous research, exclusive photographs and charts and dozens of interviews with leading authorities in the Middle East provide a factual inside view of one of history's most facinating quests."

In The Presence of My Enemies by Gracia Burnham
"For American Missionaries, Martin and Gracia Burnham, what started out as a relaxing, once-in-a-lifetime anniversary getaway at an exotic island resort turned into one of the most horrific nightmares imaginable. They were kidnapped and taken off into the jungle by the Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group with ties to Osama bin Laden. During a year in captivity, they faced near starvation, constant exhaustion, frequent gun battles and cold-hearted murder. This is a griping firsthand account of faith, love and struggle in the midst of casual brutality. Whatever the struggles of your life, you'll find encouragement and hope in this refreshingly honest store of a yearlong battle with the darkness that inhabits the human heart."

Dr. Randall Price is a Pastor, a Bible scholar and an Archeologist! "The community of people who wrote, copied and hid the Scrolls in caves lived in anticipation of the end times.

Strong's Concordance of the Bible by James Strong
"Dr. James Strong, a professor of exegetical theology, spent 35 years during the l19th Century preparing the most widely accepted concordance of the King James Bible. The remarkable dedication involved is realized only when one considers that the work was done manually without the benefit of modern computers or other electronic equipment. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance was first published in the 1890's and has been acclaimed an indispensible reference work of Bible students and scholars ever since.." It has really been critical for me in research for POWER UP! RADIO.

The Battle For The Last Days Temple by Randall Price
"Why is the Temple Mount the most volitile property on earth? One of the biggest battles raging in the Middle East involves the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Many Jews long to rebuild the Temple destroyed by the Romans in AD 70. But the site is now dominated by the Muslim Dome of the Rock, and Palestinians claim the Jews have no previous history at the site! Pastor, Archeologist and Middle East expert, Randall Price, provides fascinating answers to our questions based on archeological evidence, historical records and exclusive interviews with those at the forefront of the Temple movement. Along the way, he shows how today's headlines line up with what the Bible says about the future.

The Coming Last Days Temple by Randall Price
"Jerusalem's last Temple was destroyed by Rome in A.D. 70, and the Muslim Dome of the Rock currently sits on the Temple Mount. With the Israeli-Arab conflict raging and the Temple Mount at the center of the controversy, what will the future bring? The Bible is surprisingly rich with answers-- with prophecies about the future Temple found in both the Old and New Testaments. Some claim these prophecies are merely symbolic, but are they? Does the Bible give evidence that we can expect a literal Temple? Right now, plans are well underway in Israel to construct a new Temple which could be the most significant building of our time. Dr. Price matches prophecy with the news headlines of today."

The Faith of the American Soldier by Stephen Mansfield
"Stephen Mansfield,author of The Faith of George W. Bush, in studying our troops in Iraq, reached surprising conclusions about the need for structured faith on the battlefiels and how it's absence contributes to catastrophes like those at Abu Ghraib prison. War forces a definition of belief. It strips away the superficial and even the cultural and leaves only what is relevant in the face of death, horror and fear. It's unforgiving of superficiality, easy answers and thin religiousity, War demands real world meaning. Religion on the battlefield has to work. Our Millenial generation, the spoiled children o the godless anti-war hippie parents--these kids get it! The Marine Corps Commandant said 'there are no atheist in foxholes."

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
The Hiding Place records the life of the Dutch Ten Boom family prior to and during World War II and their deep felt religous calling to save Jewish neighbors. When they are finally caught, they are taken to camps in Germany where Corrie was the only member of the family to survive. She became a wonderful speaker and teacher after she was released and recovered. It was wonderful to meet this wholesome family filled with Jesus.

The Holiness of God by R. C. Sproul
"Are you intrigued by God's holiness or are you terrified? Jesus prayed 'hallowed be your name' but He is not treated with holy reverence. His name is tramped through the dirt of the world. God's kingdom will never come where His name is not considered holy. This is one of the classic theological works of our time. Every Believer who is serious about his or her growth needs to read this book. It will drive you to your knees and dramatically change your life."

The Prayer of Jesus by Ken Hemphill
The longing for a deep and enriching prayer life, and the intimacy with God that comes with it, is desired by all believers. So why do so few find it? Desire is not the issue. Sincerity is not the issue. Even those  who saw with their own eyes blind men healed, demons cast out, and the lame walk again had one request for the Master, Lord, teach us to pray. The answer was the Lord's Prayer. Pastor Miller calls it the Disciple's Prayer, because it is an outline of what we need to know to pray. Ken Hemphill is President of Southwestern Theological Seminary and author of numerous books."

Traveling Light by Max Lucado
"The luggage of life. You've been known to pick up a few bags--you did this morning between the first step on the floor and the last step out the door, you stepped over to the baggage carousel and loaded up--not the one in the airport; it's the one in the mind. And the bags we grab are not made of leather, they're made of burdens: The suitcase of guilt; The trunk of discontent; A backpack of anxiety and a hanging bag of grief. Add on a briefcase of perfectionism, an overnight bag of loneliness and a duffel bag of fear. No wonder we are so tired at the end of the day. Pastor Lucado walks us through the verses of the 23rd Psalm to help us inventory our burdens and release them--burdens God never intended us to bear."

Unveiling Islam by Ergun and Emir Caner
"An inside look at Muslim life and beliefs. Islam is often obscured by a veil of unfamiliar beliefs, custom and practices. We watch intruguing images of Islamic nations on our televisions. We hear words like Muslim and jihad defined in conflicting terms. What is Islam, truly, when you peek behind the veil? Brothers Ergun and Emir Caner were raised in the mosque as Sunni Muslims--they lived the Muslim life and they can explain the culture with clairty. Now Christians and respected theology provessors, the Caner brothers are in a uniques position to present an sider's look--a sympathetic yet uncompromising presentation of the entire scope of Islam--its practices, ethics and beliefs including it's primary differences with Christianity."

Walking The Straight and Narrow by Tino Wallenda
"This book is full of lessons of faith from the high wire. Tino Wallenda has walked over dens of lions and tigers, between buildings, across rivers, and over a pool that contained more than 50 man-eating sharks. With all the fame and acclaim, however, he is best known for his simple, yet powerful message of fearless faith breathtakingly delivered from the high wire." It has been my pleasure to watch and listen to Tino as he walks across, sits on a chair and stands on his head 30' above the prison yard and talks to the inmates about lessons in faith and life. They never take their eyes off of him and they are listening, really listening. Then I have seen their response when he calls them to salvation.

When The Heart Waits by Sue Monk Kidd
After writing The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd now gives us an inspiring autobiographical account of personal pain, spiritual awakening and divine grace. There is no short cut to religion. She learned the disclipine of active waiting in the Lord rather than looking for an escape from her pain. She relates the passionate and moving tale of her spiritual crisis. when life seemed to have lost meaning. She blends her own experiences with an intimate grasp of spirituality." We can all benefit from her sharing her personal experience.
