Snow Lion Meets Europe
by Khenpo Kyosang Rinpoche
“The Western society is built on machines. You live with them and even within them. And among them, too. Don’t tell me that your environment has no impact on your mind. It surely does….”
“Imagine that you are a teacher. Imagine that in your class, there are three or four lads who want to read Shakespeare or Goethe. Imagine that other students have no wish to read these authors. So what will you do if you are a ‘democratic’ teacher? You will let your students decide what they wish to study. No Shakespeare, no Goethe, to be sure….”
So states Khenpo Kyosang Rinpoche, an admired Buddhist lama, in Snow Lion Meets Europe. Through a series of lectures given to a mostly German audience, Snow Lion gently but firmly confronts the vagaries and inconsistencies of Western culture from an Eastern perspective. The result is a highly readable book that is provocative, humorous, and insightful.
God's Word: From My Heart...to Yours.
by Alan Vandewater
In God’s Word: From My Heart to Yours, Alan Vandewater draws upon his life experiences and observations to share the truth of biblical revelation to a modern-day audience. Essentially a series of sermons preached to various churches around the American Midwest, God’s Word has something to say to everyone who has, as Jesus said, “ears to hear.”
“These devotion-like sermons are accessible to the uninitiated and meaty enough for the mature. I love Alan’s heart.” -- Rev. Bruce Goettsche
Mr. Alan Vandewater is a Lay Worship Leader for the So. Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. He uses his experiences as a firefighter, fire investigator, EMT, councilman, husband and father to bring the gospel to life. Many of his introductions were based on real life happenings, both good and bad. This makes us realize that God is still a part of our everyday existence whether we acknowledge it or not.
Demolishing Intellectual Stumbling Blocks and Declaring the Truth of the Gospel
by Don McIntosh
Apologetics has become a major ministry, even a big business, in the Christian church. But have apologists lost sight of their mission? In many cases, apologetics seems to have become an end in itself, disconnected from any larger evangelistic effort. In Mission-Centered Apologetics, Don McIntosh argues that the ministry of apologetics is essentially a tool of evangelism, and therefore apologetics must have a missionary purpose. He then analyzes four intellectual “stumbling blocks” that often stand in the way of faith, and suggests ways to address them in the context of preaching the gospel of Jesus.
Don McIntosh is a Christian, a husband of one and father of two, who holds graduate degrees in Industrial Technology (M.S.) and Apologetics & Theology (M.Div.). Currently pursuing a Doctor of Apologetics degree at Trinity Graduate School of Apologetics & Theology, Don lives and works in San Antonio, Texas.
How to Release Your Faith for a Miracle
by Moses Ohiwerei
When you come to that point in your life when all human efforts have failed, when medical science can no longer help you, when all appears hopeless, and misfortune stares you in the face, what you need is a miracle. God still intervenes in the affairs of men. The situation may be hopeless and impossible with men, but not with God. “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
The principles in How to Release Your Faith for a Miracle have been proven, and since they worked for us, I’m confident they’ll work for you too, irrespective of your conditions. “All things are possible to the one who believes,” and that includes you!
Moses Ohiwerei is the founder of Revival House Int., a charismatic ministry with a message of revival, based in Benin City, Nigeria. A biochemist by training, he is inspired by the divine commission to “…bring about revival in the body of Christ…” This is a mission statement he received from the Lord. In the pursuit of this mission, he seeks to restore the individual believer in Christ to a life of spiritual realities in Christ Jesus, through the teaching and practical demonstration of God’s Word. Moses has been involved in the charismatic movement since 1991.

Fighting Spiritual Hosts of Wickedness: The Whole Armor of God
by Gideon A. Oladepo
"Effective spiritual warfare is a function of the life we live," says Gideon Oladepo in his latest book, Fighting Spiritual Hosts of Wickedness: The Whole Armor of God. Drawing richly from both Scripture and his own experiences, Pastor Oladepo analyzes the various pieces of spiritual armor described by the Apostle Paul in the sixth chapter of Ephesians. In the process he provides words of spiritual enlightenment, encouragement, and exhortation for often weary Christian soldiers.

He is currently President of the Gideon Army for Missions and Evangelism (GAME), based in Lagos.
