Books to Consider
as a Berean



"And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." 

Ecclesiastes 12:12-14

Albert James Dager - 283Pages
A new militancy is stirring in the breasts of Christians in response to the evils that beset society. Tens of thousands attend spiritual warfare seminars hoping to learn how to “take back from Satan what he has stolen.” A call for vengeance on God’s enemies and a restructuring of society under God’s Law is being heard in ever-widening circles.
But is it the Christian’s responsibility to take control of society and to reconstruct it in accordance with God’s Law?
Vengeance Is Ours presents some startling revelations in this analysis of various forms of dominion theology from Manifested Sons of God to Christian Reconstructionism. Media Spotlight


Letter to my children concerning                                           
GOD AND COUNTRY                                                                                                  
From A Christian Perspective;  

by Carl Mease

"This 45 page booklet (5.5x8.5 stapled) is a result of a parent's discipling his teenage sons, and the resulting prayer guided research into the New Testament position on non-resistance.  Due to requests from other teens, the letter was put into booklet form.  Because the content also addresses civil diobedience, patriotism, just war, and terrorism; the booklet form of the letter took on the God and Country title.  There are much longer works presenting this biblical position, yet this book is unique, in that while being brief, the New Testament position is sufficiently presented.  Whether a traditionalist, orthodox, liberal, evangelical, fundamentalist, or skeptic, you will find this work to be challenging, insightful, and maybe even life changing." 

Carl Mease's booklet is an important contribution to our discussion. Carl and I may not agree on everything, but I truly appreciate his heart and intent. Jim B.

Craig Hulet has some very important things to say about the nature of this world system. He exposes both the political right wing as well as the progressive left. I do not agree with his Nietchean philosophy and I do not believe he professes to follow Jesus in the same sense that we Evangelicals believe. But his analysis of the political and economic power structure should be considered. Mr. Hulet also has harsh criticism for American Evangelicals that we need to hear. My conclusions are not the same as his and what I consider solutions and our ultimate hope is not the same as he would advocate. But Craig Hulet should be part of our discussion.




"Citing the Roman Catholic St. Joseph's Edition of the New American Bible, this study proves the truth of salvation by grace. It then proves that the Roman Catholic Church nullifies salvation by grace in spite of its words to the contrary. According to Roman Catholicism, salvation comes by God's grace, but the only way to receive that grace is through partaking of the Roman Catholic sacraments dispensed through the priesthood. An important aid for non-Catholic Christians in understanding the true nature of Roman Catholic "grace," this study arms believers with the knowledge to witness to their Roman Catholic friends and family."

An Investigation into 
the Murder of Pope John Paul

The author does not profess to be a Biblical Christian.

"His book has two strengths. It brings up to date and tells well the story of how the Vatican has conducted its finacial affairs. The portayal of hitherto little-known John Paul I is also excellently done... an engrossing and disturbing book. It reflects no credit on the Vatican that its spokesmen affect to view the charges with contempt and ignore the questions raised" - The Economist


"Denounced by the Vatican... Acclaimed around the world... Vindicated by new evidence... Winner of the 1985 Crime writers' Gold Dagger Award for best non-fiction... "

What Do You Believe? 
Why Do You Believe It?

By Al Dager

"Is what you believe important? Everyone believes something: no one doesn't believe anything. What we believe, whether it has to do with religion or secular philosophy, impacts our lives.

"Wars are constantly being fought over ideological battlegrounds, sometimes spilling over into blood-drenched combat zones. Why does mankind think so highly of his opinion that he is ready to kill for, some even to die for it?

"What you believe is important. But can you give a reasoned explanation for why believe what you believe? Can you say for a certainty that your belief is superior to all other beliefs?"

Another book by Al Dager: The World Christian Movement



"Al Dager challenges you to examine the reasons for your beliefs. At the same time, he offers reasons for why he believes the way he does. You can accept or reject what he has to say, but at the very least you will be able to assess your own belief system and either give a reasoned defense for it, or perhaps, see the need to reassess what you believe. 

"Are you willing to take the challenge?"

The House Assembly

By Al Dager

"Recapturing The First-Century Model for The Gathering of the Saints

"A guide for those desiring to start a house assembly after the pattern of the first-century ekklesia.

"Includes biblical models for elders, teaching, fellowship and other aspects of gathering together for believers in Jesus Christ."

The Pilgrim Church

"It ought to be obvious to even the casual observer of history that the real story of the church is not the one recorded in secular history. [This book] demonstrates that the true heart of this amazing drama is not even recorded in church history books."

"Who were the Waldensians? The Lollards? The Stundists? The Anabaptists? These names were given by their enemies to those who claimed only the name of Christ, and who were prepared to suffer for His cause rather than submit to those man-made traditions that they believed contradicted the word of God."


The Torch of the Testimony

"The 2,000 year history of those Christians - and churches - that have stood outside the Protestant-Catholic tradition. This book was originally published in India in 1964 and is little known in the western world. Beginning in the first century John Kennedy traces the history of Christian groups who remained outside formalized religion down through the ages. A stirring, passionate and sometimes heart-rending story of suffering to the centrality of Christ within the Body of Christ."

Showtime for the Sheep? The Church and the Passion of the Christ

"Is Mel Gibson's blockbuster movie biblically true? Have silver-screen portrayals of biblical epics become the new "silver bullet" of evangelism? While Showtime for the Sheep? addresses these questions with eye-opening insights, it is far more than a polemic examining The Passion of the Christ. This block-busting little book addresses several key trends that are storming the church in this media-mesmerized millennium: 

"The increasing use of entertainment and amusement to teach the Word of God - and expanding efforts to make the Gospel message more "seeker-sensitive" 

"The advancing cause of ecumenism over evangelism - and the resultant confusion between Catholicism and biblical Christianity 

"The muliplying effect of doctrinal error through increasingly popular paraphrased "Bibles" - and the proliferation of visual interpretations of Scripture."
