The Jesus You Need to Know
This book is about the most influential person in all of human history. Jesus has changed the stony hearts of men that believe in Him to caring, loving, empathetic hearts of flesh. His teachings have changed whole civilizations from tyrannical, aggressive warmongers to democratic liberties where they have been applied. This book examines the godly character, integrity, and motives of the greatest man that has ever lived, and how saving faith, in the right Jesus, can, by the grace of God, make Him the source of your own.
I Will Build My Church
By identifying the Old Testament model of growth and government and integrating it into a New Testament Spirit-filled, prayer-filled people of repentance and faith; the Church, not as a nation but as an organized group of families, can fulfill God's plan as it has during periods of revival in the past. I Will Build My Church was written with Greg Treat.
