My Journey Through The Ecclesiastical Maze
'my encounter with church in many of its varying aspects' 

I was born, raised, and spent my life, in that which most call church.  This book is my journey through what I call 'The Ecclesiastical Maze'.  From a Biblical perspective, I  address the doctrines, practices, and movements, I've encountered over the last 60 years.  I address such topics as, demons, tongues, healing, cults, the Shepherding Movement, the Apostolic Movement, the Jesus People and Charismatic Movement, the Holiness Movement, Sunday meetings, and more.  I set forth the Biblical position on what the Body of Christ really means.  This may challenge yours traditional view of church.

The Politics Of God And The Bible

Hermeneutics - 'the art of Biblical interpretation'

Biblical illiteracy is one of the main problems in today's church.

Should You Tithe?
'what the Bible says about tithing'

How New Testament Christians should view the Old Testament Law Of Moses is one very misunderstood issue.  Typical Evangelical thinking is to simply pick and choose what laws to keep and what laws to throw out, something the Law does not permit us to do.  One law we've kept is tithing.  Should you tithe?  That's the question at hand.
