A Cry for Justice:  How the Evil of Domestic Abuse Hides in Your Church (by Jeff Crippen and Anna Wood) If you want to become wise about evil, study the domestic abuser who hides behind a ‘christian’ facade.  Learn about his mentality, tactics, the damage to his victims, and how he works to make the local church his ally.

Unholy Charade: Unmasking the Domestic Abuser in the Church (by Jeff Crippen with Rebecca Davis)

George Whitefield: The Life and Times of the Great Evangelist of the Eighteenth-Century Revival  (by Arnold A. Dallimore) Two-volumes:  Volume 1 and Volume 2

Arnold Dallimore has provided us with a very valuable resource by writing George Whitefield: The Life and Times of the Great Evangelist of the 18th Century Revival.  I read this two-volume set to our entire congregation about 10 years ago during our mid-week meetings, with great profit. I am currently re-reading it to our Wednesday women’s study group. I can say without exaggeration that I learned more sound theology, practical pastoral theology, and church history from these volumes than I ever did in seminary. The reader will profit by learning how the enemy opposes the preaching of Christ all the while disguised as “the clergy.” The mighty power of the Holy Spirit in effecting real revival is wonderfully described, and the Lord’s ability to transform entire nations through the power of the gospel preached by a handful of His servants serves as a great encouragement to us in these dark days. These volumes are certainly a “must read” for every Christian.
