Authority, Accountability, and the Apostolic Movement, PDF
Authority, Accountability, and the Apostolic Movement, PDF
Our Price: $10.00

This book examines different authority teachings and practices in the body of Christ, particularly those common in the New Apostolic Reformation Movement. "Leadership" teachings regarding government, ruling, honor, authority, loyalty, sonship, submission, "covering," etc. are frequently heard in the days in which we live.  This book examines these themes for biblical accuracy from a new covenant and Christ-centered perspective. It provides illumination and solutions for healthy relationships in a new covenant community of grace.

Father-Son Ministry, PDF
Our Price: $4.00

Accurate thought expressed inaccurately has consequences. That which is intended for good ends up causing harm.  The concept of spiritual fathers and sons fits the above categorization. It’s a legitimate biblical concept and it has associated benefits and risks. The problem is not in the belief per se. It’s in the expression. The father-son ministry paradigm has very specific, biblically designed-for-life, boundaries of expression that are routinely violated by the well meaning misinformed, the unhealed insecure, and propagandists with a personal agenda.  This booklet examines thirteen areas in which the father-son ministry paradigm is being implemented poorly, exceeding legitimate biblical boundaries, or careening into falsehood and abuse as well as some unique elements of the relationship between apostles and prophets that intersect the father-son ministry issue.

Healing: Hope or Hype? - PDF
Our Price: $10.00

The idea that our bodies can be physically healed through the exercise of spiritual gifts is controversial within the church. Some believe that God “doesn’t do miracles any more,” as the so-called sign-gifts are believed to have ceased in the apostolic era. Others, particularly the televangelists, manipulate people through shameful practices rooted in the love of money and fame. Hype abounds. In this book, Dr. Stephen Crosby presents a biblical, Christ-centered, reasonable, and redemptive alternative to either extreme. Understanding the Scripture’s Semitic (non-Western) worldview of community, disease, sickness, and health, is key to the effective appropriation of physical healing.  Dr. Crosby’s incisive and candid analysis cuts through the popular culture hype, and presents a compassionate God who is, and will always be, our Healer.

Praise, Worship, and the Presence of God, PDF
Our Price: $6.00

Why do we do worship the way we do?  Why do we structure the typical church service around something the apostles never did? Why do we have a near mandatory forty-five minutes (or much more) of singing in many churches before the preaching? What theology underlies our practices? What did Jesus say about the manifest presence of God? What expectations do we have in our worship services and why do we have those expectations? What is the restoration of David's tent? What does it mean to worship in "spirit and truth?" This book answers these and other questions from a grace-based, new covenant perspective, and offers a "better way to worship."

The Rescue of Matthew 18, PDF
Our Price: $4.00

Matthew 18 has suffered from careless interpretation and application over the years. This chapter is frequently used in local churches as a procedural template to resolve interpersonal offenses and  “issues.”  It is also commonly applied to the believer’s authority in spiritual warfare to “bind and loose” different entities: binding this and that “principality,” binding satan, binding the strong man, “binding” people to the will of God (!?) and “loosing” angels, etc. This booklet examines Matthew18 from a disciplined perspective, paying close attention to context and culture, and provides a perspective that is spiritually fresh and challenging to many widely held assumptions.

Royal Priesthood: Pathway to Kingdom Authority, PDF
Our Price: $5.00

Being a believer in Christ is about more than going to heaven when we die. While on earth, we are called to function and represent the Lord in a way the scriptures describe as a royal priesthood. Books describes what the royal priesthood is, why there is one, and how to participate in its reality. Even though within Protestantism, the doctrine of everyone being a priest and minister has been taught doctrinally for centuries, the reality is, very few believers function in their privilege at any meaningful, practical level. This book will awaken the reader to his or her inheritance in Christ.

The Silent Killers of Faith, PDF
Our Price: $7.00

Legalism influences seemingly functional and fruitful believers like hypertension affects the body. It is a silent killer.  Legal and performance based religion is  the most  prevalent, unrecognized, and deleterious malady affecting the individual believer and the Church universal.  Its influence has perniciously leavened the church since the first century. The legitimate pursuit of spiritual maturity often leads believers to unconsciously embrace a philosophy of performance-based elitism, forgetting the biblical roots of grace. This book exposes the philosophical and methodological  roots of legal, performance-based religion as well as the subtlety of its influence. Readers will be equipped to not only recognize the problem, but to avail themselves of the liberating grace of God.

Wealth Transfer: Tracing Trends in Money and Ministry, PDF
Our Price: $7.00

In some circles of the Body of Christ today, there is much emphasis regarding an alleged pending transfer of wealth from the unbelieving world into the hands of Christians based on Proverbs 13:22. This idea is easily manipulated by those with an agenda and without a conscience. In conjunction with this belief there is also much being said to day in regard to "marketplace ministers" being integral to the alleged transfer of wealth. This booklet examines these doctrines as well as other financial issues and prosperity teachings such as the mandatory tithe to a local church, "tithing up, or to, your covering," seed-faith offerings, sowing and reaping, harvest, etc., from a strong Christ-centered, New Covenant perspective.
