Rick Renner's book Dressed To Kill is considered by many to be a true classic on the subject of scriptural warfare. The original version, which sold more than 400,000 copies, is a curriculum staple in Bible schools worldwide. Now, in this new, beautifully bound hardback volume you will find: * 512 pages of reedited text * 16 pages of full-color illustrations (exclusively available in the print version. Not available in eBook). * Questions at the end of each chapter to guide you into deeper study In Dressed To Kill, Rick explains with exacting detail the purpose and function of each piece of Roman armor. In the process, he describes the significance of our spiritual armor not only to withstand the onslaughts of the enemy and but also to overturn the tendencies of the carnal mind. Furthermore, Rick delivers a clear, scriptural presentation on the biblical definition of spiritual warfare - what it is and what it is not. He stresses, "Your unbroken, ongoing fellowship with God is your absolute guarantee that you are constantly and habitually dressed in the whole armor of God." When you walk with God in deliberate, continual fellowship, He will enrobe you with Himself. Armed with the knowledge of who you are in Him, you will be dressed and dangerous to the works of darkness, unflinching in the face of conflict, and fully equipped to take the offensive and gain mastery over any opposition from your spiritual foe.

In Search of Timothy
By Tony Cooke

Primarily for church staff members and volunteers, but equally applicable to pastors, this book is a must read. Solidly based in scripture, personally challenging and edifying at the same time, this will help all church staff and volunteers realize the importance of their spiritual and mental alignment in regards to the mission of the local church. When we are brought into right relationship with each other, and our pastors, and understand our roles the power of the unity of Spirit is realized and released. Can be used (should be used) as a small group study as well. Fantastic insights.

Not you, that’s for sure! No one you’ve ever met, either. None of us are normal according to God’s definition, and the closer we get to each other, the plainer that becomes. Yet for all our quirks, sins, and jagged edges, we need each other. Community is more than just a word—it is one of our most fundamental requirements. So how do flawed, abnormal people such as ourselves master the forces that can drive us apart and come together in the life-changing relationships God designed us for?

In Everybody’s Normal Till You Get to Know Them, teacher and bestselling author John Ortberg zooms in on the things that make community tick. You’ll get a thought-provoking look at God’s heart, at others, and at yourself. Even better, you’ll gain wisdom and tools for drawing closer to others in powerful, impactful ways. With humor, insight, and a gift for storytelling, Ortberg shows how community pays tremendous dividends in happiness, health, support, and growth. It’s where all of us weird, unwieldy people encounter God’s love in tangible ways and discover the transforming power of being loved, accepted, and valued just the way we are.

God's Victory Plan
By Kenneth, Jr. Hagin

Throughout the Bible, you will find that God used the most unlikely and ordinary people to bring about His victory plan upon the earth—people just like you and me. And down through the centuries, great men and women of faith have been those who found out what God’s victory plan was for them, and then followed that plan exactly so they could walk in triumph. 

All of God’s plans bring victory. God always plans for victory, because He wants His children to succeed and triumph in life. In fact, you will never find one time in the Bible where God’s plans failed when His people obeyed Him. 

God has a plan of victory and triumph for you too. But you have a part to play in your own success. Only you can determine whether you will be a victim or a victor, a faith failure or a faith giant. God’s Victory Plan will show you how to take your place as a partner with God so you can succeed in everything you do! As you follow God’s plan exactly, you’ll enter into victory as a way of life!

In what ways is the Lord telling you, as he did Peter, "Come"?

John Ortberg invites you to consider the incredible potential that awaits you outside your comfort zone. Out on the risky waters of faith, Jesus is waiting to meet you in ways that will change you forever, deepening your character and your trust in God. The experience is terrifying. It’s thrilling beyond belief. It’s everything you’d expect of someone worthy to be called Lord.

The choice is yours to know him as only a water-walker can, aligning yourself with God’s purpose for your life in the process. There’s just one requirement:  If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat.

Regardless of your gender or your nationality, that thought has probably crossed your mind. And, most likely, it has crossed your mind more than once. 

This longing for significance resides in the heart of every human simply because you were created by a loving God to be significant and to fulfill a meaningful purpose based on your own unique design. Everything about you - even that which you aren't pleased with or proud of - can be used by God for His glory and your delight, if you will just commit your life to Him. In God's mind, there is no reservation - He loves you and He wants you. 

In your mind, however, a question often quietly lurks: "If I were God, would I choose me?" How you answer that question will determine if you are moving forward successfully or are feeling stuck, frustrated, and essentially ineffective. 

You may view yourself as having no purpose on earth or at least a very inconsequential one. If so, you are mistaken. There is a purpose for everything under Heaven, and since you are "under Heaven," you definitely have a God-ordained purpose. What you may lack, however, is a fresh vision.

Love Beyond Reason
By John Ortberg

How Do You Explain a Love That Has No Explanation? What will happen if you let it touch your heart? God loves you not because you are flawless, not because you are a perfect person, but just because you are. In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God you’ve longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with you, his child, and intensely committed to your highest joy. Ortberg takes you to the very core of God’s being to discover a burning, passionate love that gives, and gives, and gives. He explores the life-changing ways this love has expressed itself through Jesus. And he shows how you, like Jesus, can love your mate, your family, your friends, and the world around you with the same practical, transforming love. Dispelling your fears and misconceptions of God, Love Beyond Reason brings you face-to-face with the Love that frees and empowers you to love.

Newsweek called New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller a "C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century" in a feature on his first book, The Reason for God. In that book, he offered a rational explanation for why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, Keller takes his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity and uses the parable of the Prodigal Son to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation. 

Within that parable, Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

The Apostle Paul declares his own need for ongoing discipline and diligence, lest after preaching to others he would become “disqualified” (1 Corinthians 9:27). If one can be disqualified from effective ministry, it stands to reason that there is also a process of becoming qualified. What is involved in becoming (and staying) a “...vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:21)?

The great challenge of spiritual leadership is not simply in knowing the right words to say or knowing the right things to do; it is in being the right person. When Moses chose those who would assist, there were qualifications. When the early church chose its workers, there were qualifications. When Paul spoke of bishops, elders, and deacons, there were qualifications. In an age of skepticism and mistrust, the world and the church is looking for credible, honest, and godly leaders who are full of integrity and honor.

“There are two choices in life: Give and it will be given or take before you are taken.” Imagine yourself at Smith College, and an evangelical minister speaks these words to the president of the National Organization for Women. In a forum where the nature of feminism, marriage and the Bible were in focus, the mostly skeptical audience responded well. Real theology for the grass roots can be summed up in the six pillars of biblical power. This language flows out of an application of the shema that Jesus taught – to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; and to love our neighbors as ourselves. This is the power to overcome any and all obstacles we face in a broken world: 1. The power to give 2. The power to live in the light 3. The power of informed choice 4. The power to love hard questions 5. The power to love enemies 6. The power to forgive The whole Bible, or Theology 101 if you will, can be summed up in seven words: “God gave, we blew it, he forgave.” The powers to give and forgive are the bookends of the Bible, and on the one hand are very simple to understand, but on the other, very difficult to live out. For disciples of Jesus as Lord and Messiah, these six pillars produce honest lives in the presence of all people – believers and unbelievers alike. Even a burned-out skeptic, of the Bible and the church, will find these pillars attractive to the human soul.

This isn't a book about the weather; it's about our lives. The word storms describes the difficult and challenging seasons we all face periodically. However, as believers, we don't have to feel helpless or hopeless. God has established powerful principles and strategies to help us thrive (not just survive) in the midst of life's challenges. In the Bible, Jonah, the Disciples, and Paul all faced storms at sea. The storms came for different reasons and deliverance came in diverse ways. Most importantly, they all got through their storms and made it to the other side. There, destinies were fulfilled and God s blessings were realized. God wants the same for you! As you explore the principles in this book, you will find: * Peace in knowing that God is committed to you and your welfare * Tenacity to cling to God in spite of great challenges * Resilience to bounce back from the trials of life * Courage to move forward with purpose and conviction * Assurance and strength for your life through the promise of Isaiah 54:17, which says, No weapon formed against you shall prosper... Whatever adversity you face, God's Word will help you navigate through the storms of life and arrive successfully at your other side where trials give way to triumph.

It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong.

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

John Bevere issues some stiff challenges to the church:  what's truly good is not always clear to our natural thinking, reasoning or senses. It is part of America's failing spiritual condition that the church has often substituted a marketable message for the accurate scriptural message, offering Christ's salvation apart from His lordship, the “good” without God, and unthinkingly adopting perspectives, values and attitudes of culture without bringing them under the judgment of God's word.   If we don't live more wholly devoted to Christ's commandments, we miss out on His presence and He isn't made known to the world through His church.  This book will do more than ask you to change your behavior. It will empower you to engage with God on a level that will change every aspect of your life.

This book makes an in-depth study on the character of loyalty to God and godly leaders, types of  David.  Loyalty is a noble, unswerving allegiance, rooted in faith and love, that binds hearts together in commoin purpose.  Loyalty does not exist apart from love; it is one of the character qualities that God promotes.  The Bible provides many good examples of loyal servanthood such as Jonathan's loyalty to David; Ruth's loyalty to Naomi; Elisha's following Elijah.  Satan is the purveyor of disloyalty and we see his seeds of rebellion in many guises.  In the Bible we see disloyalty in Absalom's rebellion against his father David and in the kiss of Judas.  Since difficulties and troubles bring our true loyalties to the surface, we will witness an increasing crisis of loyalty in the End Times.
Besides overt disloyalty, We need to beware of caricatures of loyalty  (naivete, unqualified allegiance, silent acquiescence, and other manifestations).  The book  offers practical guidance for the successful development and deployment of the loyal spirit and on identifying and dealing with disloyalty in the church and our lives.
