picture of front coverAikman, David,
Jesus in Beijing: How Christianity is Transforming China and Changing the Global Balance of Power
(Paperback edition 2006), ISBN 1596980257.

From a review in Foreign Affairs: "Aikman, former Beijing bureau chief for Time, starts his impressive analysis of the state of Christianity in China with a solid review of its early history, from the Nestorians and Jesuits to the Taiping and Boxer Rebellions. Most of this book, however, is devoted to the current scene, which consists of Communist Partysponsored Protestant and Catholic churches and thousands of "home churches" that are technically illegal but often have large, conspicuous buildings... He estimates that "Christian believers in China, both Catholic and Protestant, may be closer to 80 million than the official combined Catholic-Protestant figure of 21 million" and that "it is possible that Christians will constitute 20 to 30 percent of China's population within three decades." Like the many observers who get carried away speculating about China's economic growth, Aikman proclaims that this spread of Christianity will ultimately change the global balance of power. But one does not have to agree with such a prediction to find much of interest in this book."

Interlinear Greek-English New Testament
(1997 reprint), ISBN 0529106329.

From the "Introduction": "There are many ways scarcely needing metion in which the Interlinear New Testament may prove its value, not the least of which is the facility with which it enables one, even if rusty in his Greek, to put his finger on the original Greek word or phrase, and at the same instant upon a literal rendering... The Greek Text is that of Stephens, 1550... The Greek words have always been kept in their right order, and where the interlinear English would not make sense in the same order, the words have been numbered to show how they must be read."

The Companion Bible
(1995 reprint of 1922 edition), ISBN 082542237X.

From the "Preface": The Companion Bible is a new Edition of the English Bible. Published originally in six Parts, it is now [in 1922, posthumously to Dr. Bullinger] presented in one Volume... It is called The Companion Bible because its wide margin is intended to be a Companion to the Text; and the whole is designed as the Companion of all readers of the Bible. The human element is excluded, as far as possible, so that the reader may realize that the pervading object of the book is not merely to enable him to interpret the Bible, but to make the Bible the interpreter of God's Word and Will, to him.

A Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the English and Greek New Testament
(1999 reprint), ISBN-13 978-0825420962.

From the "Preface": The design of this work is to give every English word in alphabetical order, and under each, the Greek word or words so translated, with a list of the passages in which the English word occurs, shoing by a reference figure which is the Greek word used in each particular passage. Thus, and one view, the Greek word with its literal and derivative meanings may be found for every word in the English New Testament. The Great importance of this will be seen at once, when it is stated that the same English word is used in the translation of several Greek words.

Figures of Speech Used in the Bible
(2003 reprint of 1899 edition), ISBN 0801005590.

From the "Introduction": The Word of God may, in one respect, be compared to the earth. All things necessary to life and sustenance may be obtained by scratching the surface of the earth: but there are treasures of bearty and wealth to be obtained by digging deeper into it. So it is with the Bible. "All things necessary to life and godliness" lie upon its surface for the humblest saint: but, beneath that surface are "great spoils" which are found only by those who seek after them as for "hid treasure."

picture of front coverBullinger, E.W.,
How to Enjoy the Bible
(2004 reprint of 1907 edition), ISBN 082542027X.

From the "Introduction": "'The majority of mankind think that they think; they acquiesce, and suppose that they argue; they flatter themselves that they are holding their own, when they have actually grown up to manhood, with scarcely a conviction that they can call their own. So it always was, and so it will ever be. The Divine things of the Word are no exception, but rather an instance. The more difficult the subject, and the more serious the consequences of error, the more averse the majority are to what is called 'unsettling men's minds' as if truth could be held on any other tenure than the knight's fee of holding its own against all comers. Protestantism has brought us no relief against this torpid state of mind, for, as the error is as deep as the nature of man, we cannot expect any deliverance from it so long as the nature of man continues the same, and his natural love of truth is almost as depraved as his natural love of holiness.' But the way of discovery, as Bishop Butler has [also] pointed out, still lies open before us; and it is our object in this work to enter on that way, and study the Bible from within and not merely from without."

E.W. Bullinger: A Biography
(1988), ISBN-13 978-0825423727.

From the "Introduction": Bullinger was never a man of the mainstream; he was one of those rare individuals who sought to live his life influenced neither by the praise nor the fear of his fellow-man. "Popularity is not to be our aim; success is not to be our object; results are not to be our guide; we are called to be faithful in our testimony." This is an ideal which many seek to attain. Few, in reality, do. I invite you to open up these pages and to meet this unique individual whom I went to Great Britain to find. May you enjoy becoming acquainted with him as I have and may his faithful witness be as much an inspiration to you as it has been to me.

The Great Reckoning
(1993), ISBN-13: 978-0671885281.

From Amazon.com: Tough-minded socioeconomic forecasts that, while in the alarmist tradition of Ravi Batra, Harry Browne, Adrian Day, etc, afford genuinely thoughtful perspectives on an arguably uncertain future. This time around, Davidson (founder of the National Taxpayers Union) and Rees-Mogg (ex-editor of the London Times) largely eschew the pitches for their investment advisory services that marred their Blood In The Streets (1987), sticking instead to what they call megapolitical analysis. Using this big-picture approach, the authors predict a deflationary depression for the global village by the turn of the century, if not sooner. --Kirkus Reviews

The Privileged Planet
(2004), ISBN-13: 978-0895260659.

From the book's website: Gonzalez and Richards have written a book that is at once inspiring, illuminating, and beautiful. Although the 20th century insights in quantum physics should long ago have dispelled the simplistic idea that nature is nothing more than matter in motion, The Privileged Planet suggests that scientific discovery is embedded in the very structure of the cosmos. With uncommonly engaging prose, they offer a virtual tour of the marvels of modern science and the discoveries science has brought to light, from geology to cosmology. The authors also suggest intriguing answers to ubiquitous "cosmic questions": Why have we been able to discover so much about the world around us in such a short time? Is extraterrestrial life common, or is it quite rare? What is Earth's place in the cosmos? Does the universe exist for a purpose? Only those interested in these questions -- but who isn't? -- should read this book. --George Gilder

Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life
(1990), ISBN 0671019112.

From the BRJ review: How do we explain to ourselves the adversities that we face in life? How do we explain to ourselves the good things that happen? Prof. Seligman has based his career in cognitive psychology on studying these two questions. Categorizing what he calls people's "explanatory styles" about both adversities and blessings along a scale as either "optimistic" or "pessimistic," his research has shown that the more optimistic a person's explanitory style, the more resilient that person is in bad times and the more capable he or she is to build upon the good.

The Optimistic Child: A proven program to safeguard children against depression and build lifelong resilience
(1995), ISBN 0618918094.

From the publisher's product description: In The Optimistic Child, Dr. Martin E. P. Seligman offers parents, teachers, and coaches a well-validated program to prevent depression in children. In a thirty-year study, Seligman and his colleagues discovered the link between pessimism -- dwelling on the most catastrophic cause of any setback -- and depression. Seligman shows adults how to teach children the skills of optimism that can help them combat depression, achieve more on the playing field and at school, and improve their physical health. As Seligman states in his new afterword for this edition (2007), "Teaching children optimism is more, I realized, than just correcting pessimism . . . It is the creation of a positive strength, a sunny but solid future-mindedness that can be deployed throughout life -- not only to fight depression and to come back from failure, but also to be the foundation of success and vitality."

From the back cover: Kristen Skedgell was among the first wave of young people from prosperous suburbs recruited into The Way International, a nationally known evangelical ministry. Losing the Way tells of her intense fifteen-year involvement, the betrayal and abuse she suffered, and how she was ultimately rescued by the "worldly" mother she had rejected. Brutally honest, Losing the Way shows how easily an idealistic young person can be swept away by a spiritual quest and manipulated through the quiet malevolence lurking beneath the religious exterior of a false leader. A Moving personal story, it is also the first book the show where The Way actually led.

From correspondence by Muller: [With] the careful reading of the word of God...[the believer] will repose upon the ability of God to help him, [having] seen instance upon instance in the Holy Scriptures in which His almighty power and infinite wisdom have been actually exercised in helping and delivering His people... [And] he will repose upon the willingness of God to help him, because he has not only learned from the Scriptures what a kind, good, merciful, gracious and faithful being God is, but because he has also seen in the word of God, how in a great variety of instances He has proved Himself to be so.... The Living God is with us, whose power never fails, whose arm never grows weary, whose wisdom is infinite and whose power is unchanging. Therefore today, tomorrow and next month, as long as life is continued, He will be our helper and friend. Still more, even as He is through all time, so will He be through all eternity.

Are the Dead Alive Now?
(1971), ISBN-13: 978-0910068406

From the "Forward," by Karen Martin: Having for so many years personally investigated all fields directly and remotely associated with the subject "Are the Dead Alive Now?" the author presents this Biblical research work with logic, Biblical depth, and spiritual insight. This research may prove controversial but it is surely not untimely with the current teachings of many religious leaders and the experimentation in the psychic world which are finding so-called proofs of survivial after death. Laymen and clergy alike are being cogently appealed to and convinced by these supernatural phenomena. Thus, lacking accurate Biblical knowledge, they fall prey to counterfeit phenomena which to the unknowing appear innocent and genuine... The irony of Satan's deception is that although he is the author of sin and death, during seances and ESP experiences it is Satan's power that counterfeits the conjured-up dead and makes them appear alive and enjoying the Great Hereafter. Auditory and ectoplasmic phenomena of those who have died and now appear alive elsewhere cannot be sponsored by the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Word of God shows that new life to the dead comes with the return of Christ. Before Chist's coming, all those who have died remain in the grave in corruption and unconsciousness... In an age of questioning and questing, a return and a search of the Word of God seems not only reasonable, but in the end, most satisfying.

This study in the law of prosperity is an educational venture, a training school, for all those who desire not only to know the will of God but to do His will, thus gaining for themselves the blessings which His will promises.

Jesus Christ Is Not God
(1981, Second Edition), ISBN 0-910068-33-X.

From the "Introduction": No statement to many Christians could be more emotionally charged than that of "Jesus Christ is not God." I can understand this. I was reared in a Christtian denomination that taught the Godhead as a trinity: that is, "God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit." I accepted this doctrine because I respected the sincerity of my teachers, although its meaning kept vexing my mind. I vividly recall asking my saintly pastor when I was just 16 years old to explain the trinity to me. Ever since then I have searched to understand this doctrine which has been considered the cornerstone of Christianity for the past fifteen centuries. I have had access to and have read the major works in systematic theology both of the past as well as current publications. For years I have done my utmost in evaluating whatever I could find to read plus directly studying with Biblical scholars. I have asked theologians of unblemished character to discuss the trinity with me, yet I never found more substance than what my child-hood pastor, Dr. L. H. Kunst, told me 42 years ago: "No one can explain the trinity. We simply accept it by faith."

From the "Preface": One of the most celebrated of holidays around the world is Christmas. Its popularity is growing even in traditionally non-Christian countries. Merchants capitalize on its lucrative tradition of gift giving. In my own family we have always given gifts at Christmastime and gathered the family around the Christmas tree. Warm memories of love and giving arise when I think of our traditional family Christmas celebrations. Yet tradition rather than truth is the basis for celebrating the birth of Christ on December 25... So how did the birthday of our savior become associated with December 25? When was the savior really born? By carefully tracking the details in the Word of God, in history, and in the field of astronomy, we can certify the time of his birth to within an hour and a half: the year, the date, and the hour. December 25, 1 A.D. is far off the mark.

Power for Abundant Living
(1971), ISBN 0-910068-01-1.

From the dustjacket: Since the second century, Christians as a whole have been almost totally unaware of any special power to be used in everyday living. Yet the promise of Jesus Christ in John 10:10 is that He came so His followers "might have life and that they might have it more abundantly." Why then are Christians so frequently not evidencing the more-than-abundant life? Dr. Wierwille, the author of this book, attributed Christians's physical, mental, financial and all other problems to one underlying cause -- and that is lack of using their spiritual abilities... This book sets forth in written form a twelve-session class (also called "Power for Abundant Living") which Dr. Wierwille has taught to thousands of people -- Christians and non-Christians, believers, doubters and skeptics -- across the United States and elsewhere around the world.

From the dust jacket: An explosion of interest and activity has occurred in the last generation concerning the gift of the holy spirit. Multitudes of people have suddenly broken the barrier of ignorance and fear, and have begun to enjoy fellowship with God by the means that God himself provided: namely, speaking in tongues. Speaking in tongues is one of nine manifestations of holy spirit. Because we are followers of God, it is central to our lives that we do God's will by operating these manifestations. Yet many Christians simply have not been taught how to manifest; some do not know why to manifest. Receiving the Holy Spirit Today is a how-to-do-it and a why-to-do-it book. It is also an in-depth Biblical study of the Holy Spirit field.

From the "Preface": God designed life -- He made, formed, and created us. Therefore He certainly knows what richness of life He intended for us when we live life according to His plan. When we believers line up ou lives according to God's Word, God's rule book, we put ourselves in the position to receive the maximum blessings of life -- in body, soul, and spirit. Order My Steps in Thy Word is organized into four parts: "God's Order for Life," "God's Order for Leadership," "God's Order in Old Testament Times," and "God's Order for Quality Believers." Within the parts, each chapter has been researched and written as an individual study. The studies are grouped under genereal topics so that you as the reader can gain a broader scope of each topic. I pray and believe that a greater knowledge of God and His Word will uplift you and inspire you to better order your steps in God's Word.

Babylon Mystery Religion
(1981), ISBN 0-916938-00-X.

From the backcover: "Babylon Mystery Religion is a detailed Biblical and historical account of how, when, why, and where ancient paganism was mixed with Christianity. From the early days of Babylon and the legends surrounding Nimrod, Semiramis, and Tammuz, certain rites and rituals are traced in their various developments, thus providing clues whereby the "mystery" is solved! The apostles predicted there would come a "falling away" and the proof of their prediction is now evident in history. With such evidence in hand, all true believers should seek, as never before, the simplicity found in Christ himself and to earnestly contend for that original faith wich was once delivered unto the saints."
