  • Why The Devil Gave Us The Modern Pastoral Office (2017) By David Oludairo
    The concept of one man ruling over the assembly, one man ruling over the Church in a city, and one man ruling over the entire Church in the world is almost as old as the Roman Empire itself and patterned after that Empire which merged with Christianity in the 4th century. It is a concept that is altogether unknown in the Church of the first century. Although almost universally embraced today, what was God's design for HIS Church? Was it the present system of one man ruling or was it a quorum of those more mature in the faith (elders) as servants and examples to the flock relying upon the unity of the Holy Spirit in their midst to even function? - PDR

  • The Epistle To The Romans: A Bible Study And Commentary (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "They were to disciple NATIONS, not just the Jewish people. It was not to be a religion like the Jewish religion of Judaism, hence it is described as the Faith and its adherents are to be people who are in obedience to its tenets. The Faith therefore is descriptive of a set of teachings taught to the nations which if they were obeyed from the heart, would result in life transforming realities. It is this body of teachings - the things that its adherents BELIEVE in, that we call the doctrines of Christ."

  • The Righteous Church (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "'Where there is no hatred for iniquity how can there be a love of righteousness.' In the New Testament we see the preservative - Salt, symbolizing the Church; this is the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus with which we are clothed as his people. But as yet we do not see Nigeria exalted as a nation because of divine righteousness. Even the righteousness of the 'Church in Nigeria' appears to be non existent judging by the deteriorating conditions and the unabated increase in CORRUPTION. If the Church is still the salt of the earth in this nation, then the proof of it would be the exaltation of Nigeria; but if this salt has lost its savour then it has become worthless."

  • The Recovering Of The Lord's Testimony In Fullness (1953-54) By Theodore Austin-Sparks
    There are three things which are essential to an adequate life with God, to a fullness of the Christian life. Firstly, the realization that God is concerned with the accomplishment of something worthy of Himself. The second thing is that people shall become aware of what that great something in the heart of God is, what it is that God is so concerned with, and then that they shall be moved to co-operate with Him in it. And then, in the third place, that we recognize that this object in the heart of God and this co-operation with Him by His people involves very real conflict and cost, and that His people must face that and be ready to accept it.

  • Who's Touching The Ark? (1996) By Leonard Ravenhill

  • The Righteousness Of God In Christ Jesus (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "And when the king came in to see the guests, He saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: Matthew 22:11 He had been so confident of his acceptance at the gate the moment he showed them his BORN AGAIN invitation; after all he didn't invite himself, he was CALLED, and the gate men too had not been quite sure. He looked born again, he just wasn't wearing the dress code. They didn't think it mattered so they let him in. But when the King of righteousness came in to see his guests; all but this ONE man had on the wedding garment, so it was easy to single him out. Friends, in addition to the invitation, THERE IS A DRESS CODE!"

  • Eagle Saints Arise! (1967) By Bill Britton
    FROM THE PREFACE: The chapters of this book by Bill Britton are made up from a series of messages written and published in a booklet form in earlier days of this writing ministry. Our purpose in these messages is to show that God has a people that are rising above the earth-bound conceptions of carnal men and their static theology. The ecclesiastical orders and religious organizations of our day would keep God's people in spiritual slavery if they could. But thank God, the Truth is flowing like a river in this generation, freeing the minds of the elect from the traditions of men, enabling them to soar to new heights of revelation. God is not dead, and the Holy Spirit has not stopped opening up the Scriptures to those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to believe.

  • The Ignatian Epistles Entirely Spurious (1886) By William Dool Killen, D.D.
    The early Church functioned under multiplicy of elders noted as those more mature in their faith and commendable in their lives but in a few centuries with the development of the dominating Roman Church, a more hierarchial form of Church government appeared with singular Bishops at the head of each church and ultimately with the headship of the singular Papal leader over the entire Church. Much of the basis for this transformation is claimed to be found in the seven Epistles of Ignatius who died shortly after the end of the first century. There are many articles refuting these Epistles as forgeries but in this book, the author goes into a brilliant refutation of them leaving the claim of singular leadership in the Church by some, whether pastors, bishops or the Pope in serious discreditation.

  • The Ancient Church: Its History, Doctrine, Worship, and Constitution, Traced for the First Three Hundred Years. (1859) By William Dool Killen, D.D.
    In the interval between the days of the apostles and the conversion of Constantine, the Christian commonwealth changed its aspect. The Bishop of Rome — a personage unknown to the writers of the New Testament — meanwhile rose into prominence, and at length took precedence of all other churchmen. Rites and ceremonies, of which neither Paul nor Peter ever heard, crept silently into use, and then claimed the rank of divine institutions. Officers, for whom the primitive disciples could have found no place, and titles, which to them would have been altogether unintelligible, began to challenge attention, and to be named apostolic. It is the duty of the historian to endeavour to point out the origin, and to trace the progress of these innovations. An attempt is here made to lay bare the causes which produced these changes, and to mark the stages of the ecclesiastical revolution.

  • Why Revival Tarries (1959) By Leonard Ravenhill
    Leonard Ravenhill's call to revival is as timely now as it was when first published nearly 60 years ago. The message is fearless and often radical as he expounds on the disparity between the New Testament church and the church today, emphasizing prayer and passion over comfort and intellectualism.

  • According To Christ (1959) By T. Austin-Sparks
    The essential nature of a 'New Testament church': how such a church is formed, what are the principles which govern it. A remarkable insight into the life and purpose of the Church and Christ in it's midst. This is a must read for all those that would tread on the waters of reformation.

  • One Body In Christ (1968) By Kokichi Kurosaki
    The Character and Nature of the Oneness of the Body of Christ. At the very heart of things there is a deep-seated problem which if not met will finally disannul all other victories we may achieve. Scripture tells us this - and, thus far, the glorious but sad history of the Church bears ample witness. It is with this root need that our Japanese brother so ably addresses himself in these pages - not merely pointing out the problem, but with true spiritual insight giving the answer.

  • ERRORS OF THE WORD OF FAITH: Unveiling a Cleverly Concealed Lie (2019) By Abiodun Jemilohun
    Theology espouses several concepts that were hitherto unknown in mainstream Christianity. These concepts have now become so popular that only someone who is well acquainted with church history can discern them as foreign to the Christian faith. This volume is another genuine attempt to examine this theology under the searchlight of the holy scripture. (Click to see more)

  • HOW PEOPLE PROSPER FINANCIALLY: A Christian Perspective on Economic Prosperity (2019) By Abiodun Jemilohun
    The author through fidelity to the truth in the scriptures and the public sphere objectively disproves at every turn and rationally dismantles the “Prosperity gospel” narrative. The “Prosperity gospel” is anti-scriptural, promotes an anti-Christian work ethic, mystifies wealth, makes God a lottery machine and ultimately robs the Christian of the blessings that God has bestowed on honest labor and the joys therein. He went beyond that in this treatise to show how the Christian can actually prosper ... (Click to see more)
