The Garden Theology: Discovering Design Acquiring Identity, by Jan H. Lamprecht (February 2017)
What is commonly diagnosed as an identity crisis – when we cannot seem to grab a hold of our purpose in life, is in actual fact a design crisis. Somehow our design evaded us. Or did we circumvent it on account of a different influence? I believe the latter to be true. The serpent in the garden presented man with an alternative design which resulted in an alternative identity. In ignorance, we treated the symptom of fallen man and remained oblivious to the cause of the symptom. We tried to make all sorts of unfitting identities stick, whilst there remains only one true identity for man – Christ as our very life. If we are to remedy a design crisis, we need to get to know the Designer who designed us and trouble-shoot all the way back to the garden. Hence the title – The Garden Theology.
The Father We Never Knew: The Unbinding of the Lazarus Church by the Restoration of the Gospel, by Phelim Doherty (February 2017)
The gospel of God’s grace announces nothing less than the abolition of religion. But we have taken a supernatural message and turned it into a mere natural one, and the result is a spiritually immature church that sees strength primarily in natural terms, and church growth as being about congregation sizes and resources rather than revelation. When the glitter of religious performance-what we can achieve for God-is peddled in the church as real gold for long enough, then we raise a generation of believers who know how to do things for God, but not how to be the children of a joyful Father! We raise a nation of holy orphans who, not knowing their Father’s righteousness as their spiritual DNA, live constantly trying to prove their parentage through their performance. The result is a church so sin-conscious and self-conscious that she is like a bride so insecure in her identity that she has buried the likeness of her Father beneath layers of makeup. In this book the author begins to peel back that makeup to reveal the simple beauty of the gospel: Christ in us.

For children: Ahoy, Matey! Come along for a fun-filled, educational adventure that explores Gods treasure of design and purpose. We will make all kinds of amazing discoveries.

God has given His creation everything we need from the Milky Way Galaxy, our home in space, to the amazing force of gravity that keeps our feet on the ground and not flying around upside down. Of course, the most treasured design He made in the universe is YOU! Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen. Were going on an adventure of exploration!
God’s Love Mystery, by David R Carley (October 2016)
God’s love mystery is the most precious gift that can be given to mankind. God created within every human heart a basic yearning for an eternal life filled with freedom, joy, peace and love. This desire can only be satisfied by its Creator. In this book you will explore the secrets of God’s love mystery. In this book you will look at the devastation vain “Christian” beliefs have inflicted on the lives of countless saints. God’s word says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. The one who fears has not been perfected in love” (1 John 4:18). God’s love mystery can help to finally set you on the right track to begin breaking free from the satanic chains of fear, confusion, doubt, and unhappiness you are experiencing. The more you understand and believe in the secrets of God’s love mystery, you will increasingly enjoy the eternal freedom, love, joy, and peace that God put in your heart to desire so deeply.
All Things New: Starting Where Jesus Finished, by Chuck Elmore (October 2016)
The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ fundamentally changed humanity and established a new creation way of life. In this new creation, the old rules, nature, and powers-that-be have been overcome, and those who have been adopted into the family of God are blessed with friendship, communion, and a vital connection with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Enemy has tried to obscure Christ’s victory over sin and death with distractions that center around self, whether it’s self-gratification or self-righteousness. This book exposes those schemes and reveals the Good News to be infinitely better than we believed. All Things New will help you: • Remove the veils of legalistic mistruths to behold the face of God. • Recognize and withstand the Enemy’s attempts to keep your eyes off Jesus. • Understand the victory Christ has won for you and be transformed into your identity in Him. • Leave the wearying cycle of performance, striving, sin, and despair to be restored to hope and full reliance on the Lord and His power within you to overcome. • Move on to greater things in abundant, new creation life.
The Gospel that Paul Preached, by Paul Edwards (August 2016)
What is the standard that God requires in order to be acceptable to Him? The answer is the “gospel,” the New Covenant of God’s unmerited favor. Through the Lord Jesus finished work at Calvary, believers have been restored to a place of favor with God. No longer servants—but sons and daughters of King Jesus.
For many believers, the New Covenant really is something new. The great tragedy is that most people know exactly what the Ten Commandments are. Failure to divide the Old Covenant from the New creates a crippling concoction of confusion and condemnation. The revelation of grace that is found in the Lord Jesus and His finished work at the cross liberates believers from the tyranny of the law and its impossible demand for righteousness.
In this book you will discover “who” righteousness is and who believers have become by believing the good news. Learn to interpret scripture in the light of the New Covenant. Understand the purpose of the Law and its place in the believer’s life when scripture is understood in context. And most of all have your eyes opened to the Lord Jesus the lover of your soul and mediator of the New Covenant.
Freedom, by Jeremiah Johnson (July 2016)
From the beginning of creation it has been God’s will that his children live in freedom. The human heart cries out for freedom and often searches for it in the worst places, because the church at large has not always been a model for freedom. BUT… Jesus is bringing freedom back to his church, to make the church beautiful again, to make the church attractive again, to make the church a place people actually want to go, not run away from. After all the bible does say, “Where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.” Wherever Jesus is, in that place you will find freedom, wherever Jesus is not, in that place you will find an absence of freedom.
This book is about my pursuit of freedom. Initially I chased after Hollywood’s lying dreams of freedom in parties and sex, drugs and rock and roll, which left me in the slavery of addiction. Then I found freedom briefly in the arms of my savior before being ushered into the slavery of manmade religion. Then finally, Jesus rescued me from the clutches of manmade religion with his amazing grace. Join me in this journey as we pursue and protect this freedom that Father God wants us to have.
The Not Confused Series, by Gavin Cox (July 2016)
The Bible documents seven covenants or contracts. Terms and conditions apply. Anyone not clear on which contract applies to them, why, and how, will inevitably be confused regarding what Christianity is all about. Book 1 is simple, straight-forward and clear. It will help you read your Bible with understanding. You will know what Jesus did and why, and how it applies to you. You will also be able to approach any passage of Scripture armed with that knowledge, and be able to apply it appropriately to your life and circumstances.
Book 2 explores exactly what the Gospel is – what is meant by this Good News. As you read you’ll discover why the Gospel is timelessly and universally applicable, how it saves, and what the innumerable benefits of that salvation are. The Gospel’s greatness lies in the simple fact that it is the continuous application of that which the Lord accomplished through the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. “Why the Gospel is the Best News Ever!” takes time to celebrate the rich, multi-faceted, eternal beauty of who Jesus is, and of what He has done!
Living in the will of God is the application of the New Covenant in our day to day lives. Book 3 is full of well illustrated and very practical instruction on how to do just that. The will of God is the will of God for all of His children, and you too can confidently live in it.
Beyond Forgiveness, by Joe Langley (July 2016)
Forgiven… Freed from guilt… Our sins separated as far as the east is from the west… The “once and for all” sacrifice for sins accomplished. But the Bible speaks of something more. “We were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, but how much more shall we be saved through His life!” What is that “much more?” How are we saved through His life? What is the bigger picture of our salvation?

Knowing Spiritual Reality, by Jeff Moore (April 2016)
This book explains what is really going on when we make choices. What part God plays and what part we play in the saving of our own soul. Also it makes it clear how salvation works by grace through faith which means our choice of faith is our part in reconciliation. It takes two I do’s to make a marriage not just one. God reconciled all but He left it up to us to agree with His choice. Yes He paid for all but not all are yet saved in this life. Salvations three stages are discussed greatly while the last part of the book deals with our attitude and how it determines our altitude. We are to humble ourselves to see God as He is today then we are to grow up into His likeness of what we saw. Humility is key to the submission and insight that it takes to be an overcomer in this life. We are not waiting for a coming Jesus until we have overcome all His enemies! Psalm 110 It is our responsibility to grow up or not. It is our choice to be willing. This book is written to both the seeker and the studier who wants to know God personally. It has personal testimonies to bring the context into reality. There is no end to how or to whom this applies for many are confused and misinformed. Universal Reconciliation and the grace verses free will groups are both dealt with here. Each chapter has an illustration or chart to help the reader understand the spiritual view of things. This book is full of answers for both the hungry and the hurting Christian. It is written to those whom God has chosen to call His own. You!
Good God, by Lucas Miles (March 2016)
God is neither responsible for your pain, nor is He allowing it. In fact, He is against it and wants nothing more than to prevent it. Deep inside every person is a hope that God is good. Yet faced with personal hardship or the world’s tragedies, it’s easy to doubt God’s character and to blame Him for our pain.
Good God unpacks our misguided concepts of God so that we can begin to see Him as he truly is — pure, loving, and completely good. If you’ve wondered if God is testing you — or perhaps worse, punishing you, you are not alone. Most of us want to believe that God is good, but we cannot find a way to harmonize God’s goodness with the evil that exists in this world. Good God introduces the God that we all want to believe in but have been too afraid to embrace. With the Bible as his guide, Lucas takes readers on a journey to uncover the lost and forgotten nature of the Creator of the Universe and discover a real relationship with God.
God Tone, by Haans Erlandson (Sept 2015)
Hearing from God has become a laborious process that people have disqualified themselves from. In God Tone you will discover that God has designed us to hear Him as a normal part of our life. You will be encouraged in your identity and inspired in your relationship with Him. What man often complicates, God has simplified through the finished work of His Word—Jesus! You will know that God speaks from His point of view—his Love. Learning to hear from how He defines you gives you the power to be who He made you to be. Hearing from God creates an unseen advantage to implement His plan through who you are not merely what you do.
Success is determined by hearing God’s voice through relationship, not merely copying principles. You will hear the tone in which He speaks to you, which includes His love, logic, and intent for blessing your life. At the heart of any relationship is healthy communication. To communicate vibrantly, we must take confidence in the fact that Jesus has qualified us to hear the God Tone.
Staying Connected, by Jeremiah Johnson (Jan 2015)
Why is it we see a person meet Jesus, get born again, begin to bring forth fruit of a changed life, and then we see another person meet Jesus, get born again, and they bring forth little to no fruit? There seems to be a genuine lasting change in one person’s life but then in the other person’s life no lasting change. Sometimes you will see change for just a short time and then they’ll go back to the old life they came out of. This may have happened to you. I know it happened to me. Why is it we see some people come to Jesus and get delivered from destructive lifestyles and other people seem doomed to remain in bondage? Why is it we see some people set free from depression, sexual addiction, cutting, self-hatred, eating disorders, drug addictions, alcoholism, anger, lying, cheating, stealing (the list goes on and on) and some do not? WHY do we see more change in some people’s lives than others? It is a question that has challenged me my entire born again life.
If God is the creator of the born-again experience, then why does it appear that some of his handiwork is beautiful and fruitful and others appear to be a flat failure? Something is wrong; there is a breakdown somewhere. We know there is nothing wrong with God, and if there is nothing wrong with God there can be nothing wrong with his finest work the beautiful work of redemption through Jesus. God is the artist behind the born-again experience, but it appears some of his work is unfruitful. We know that thinking is wrong, so what exactly is the answer? The answer is simple. The answer is easy. The answer is Jesus and his amazing grace. I invite you to come and see how all the things you have been striving so hard to gain and accomplish are easily received in an abundance of grace. Amazing grace keeps us connected and fruitful, not in our strength, but his.
