Be Likeminded (#1046) by Daniel Andersen. Christ is the basis of Christian unity, and when Paul exhorts believers to be "likeminded" he is not entreating them to comply with the same code or creed, or to conform to the same confession or catechism. Rather he is appealing to them to accept others as Christ, Himself, accepts them. ISBN: 1934251364 / 9781934251362 -- 54pp. BK $9.95


Church in Ruins, The: Brief Thoughts on II Timothy (#3325) Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. This brief survey of Paul’s last epistle will reveal that while almost 2000 years have transpired, the condition of the church has remained the same, and indeed has worsened in accordance with Paul’s warning to Timothy. This book is not a call for a re-awakening of “the church,” because it is apparent that this is not Father’s plan. Rather, it is a call to individual men – men whose place in the Christian religious system has left them empty, stagnant, and restless – to awaken to Father’s call to be His faithful servant and stand outside of that system to look for other faithful men as well.

Church Which Is His Body and The Bride the Lamb’s Wife, The (#1348) by J. H. Kessler. “In Scripture the church of this dispensation is symbolized as ‘the Body of Christ,’ never as ‘the Bride.’” - Sir Robert Anderson, The Coming Prince. 48p BK $10.95

The Church’s Heavenly Character (#3579) by C. H. Mackintosh (1820-1896). “During the greater part of the nineteenth century, there lived and labored in Great Britain a true and devoted servant of God, Charles Henry Mackintosh. He was one of the early Brethren, commonly called Plymouth Brethren. His chief writings are found in the six-volumes Notes on the Pentateuch, and the six-volumes Miscellaneous Writings of C.H.M. He never used his name in connection with his writings and to most of his readers he is known only by his initials ‘C.H.M.’ In 1850 he wrote a series of papers on The Life and Times of Elijah. In the final paper of this series under ‘Concluding Remarks’ we find a strong testimony in confirmation of the unique ministry of Paul. This section is reprinted here as The Church’s Heavenly Character.” – Otis Q. Sellers (1901-1992) 44 pages, paperback. $5.95

The Outsiders: God’s Called-Out Ones A Biblical Look at the Church God’s Ecclesia (#4125) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. In 1995, after sixteen years of being in the “pastorate” the author walked away. He left the "religious system" by resigning from the very “church” and “ministry” he had formed.  In many ways this work is a testament to these actions. This testimony was thirty years in the making -- the results of a spiritual journey that the author found to be common to other saints scattered throughout the world and across history. This is an opportunity to explain why some who love the Lord no longer "go to church." It does not seek to persuade others to do something different; but rather to simply be who and what they already are “in Him.” This is an uncovering of the truth of the church, and an encouragement for the members of His Body to enjoy the position and standing “in Christ” that they already possess, realizing that they are truly “complete in Him” (Colossians 2:10), that He alone is their Life (Colossians 3:4), and that His Life is full of freedom (Galatians 5:1).  ISBN: 9781934251614 -- 128 page PB.

Pagan Christianity: Exploring the Roots of Our Church Practices (#3106) by Frank Viola & George Barna. Revised, Enlarged, and now in hardback! Have you ever wondered why we Christians do what we do for church every Sunday morning? Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions: Why do we "dress up" for church? Why does the pastor preach a sermon every Sunday? Why do we have pulpits and pews? Why do we have church buildings, steeples, choirs, and seminaries? Where did these things come from? This book proposes that most of what we Christians do in our churches has no root in the Scriptures! It rather has its origin in pagan culture. As shocking as that sounds, Viola proves his point by documenting every claim he makes. Fully footnoted, Pagan Christianity is the first book ever penned that documents the entire story of our modern church practices. If you are a Christian who is content with status quo "churchianity," then you will not want to read this book. It is reserved for those who are ready to embark on an eye-opening venture that challenges every aspect of their church experience.  Revised, Updated, 293 page. PB. $17.95
