Prophetic Light in This Present Darkness by Kenneth S. Wuest. A very insightful and thought stimulating book in many ways. However, I find very problematical the author's opinion that the Antichrist is Judas reincarnated by Satan. That being said, I have no problem with Judas being seen as an antitype of the beast.
First Peter in the Greek New Testament: Word studies by Kenneth Wuest with fuller translation.
Hebrews in the Greek New Testament by Kenneth Wuest. I have always appreciated brother Wuest's word studies. However, I am not in full aggreement with what seems to be an accesively evangelistic interpretation of this epistle directed toward first-century Jewish unbelievers. Enjoy the word studies.BR> In These Last Days by Kenneth Wuest -- Containing word studies in Second Peter, First, Second and Third John, and Jude.

A Commentary On Revelation
-- The Revelation of Jesus Christ by J.B. Smith. This is perhaps one of the
best commentaries written on the book. However, his explanation of the "seven
Spirits which are before his throne" (1:4; cf. 3:1, 4:5) as "angels" rather
than a representation of the sevenfold ministry of the Holy Spirit should be
called into question.

Introduction To The New
Testament by Henry Clarence Thiessen. This book traces the historical
path of the New Testament from the earliest manuscripts. You will find
it an interesting and encouraging study as you see how the Holy Spirit
protected the Word of God down through the centuries through the
faithfulness of good men. Interestingly enough, even in the earliest
days, there were those who would have discredited its genuineness and
value in much the same way as the modern critics do today.

The King James Only
Controversy by James R. White. The book is very readable, even Part Two.
You do not need to be a Greek or Hebrew scholar to appreciate the entire
book. Where possible, references have been compared with braille Greek
and Hebrew texts and the material found accurate, fairly represented,
and an intelligent and spiritually mature approach to the subject of
Bible translations and manuscript evidence. One need not fear the
material presented in this book. Being raised on the KJV, although, I do
use and appreciate other translations, However, I do not recommend the
NIV because it is a "thought for thought" translation which I have found
to be inaccurate, especially in First Corinthians chapter 3, where it
translates "sarx", as "worldly" in contrast to the KJV "carnal" (or
flesh). In this instance, the mistranslation leads to confusion as the
believer is to respond differently to each of his three enemies. (Check
out the "Christian Life Series" for more details on our enemies.)

The Forgotten Trinity by James R. White. "I love the Trinity", is a favorite expression of James White, which will become evident as you read this book.
Why You Should Believe
in the Trinity: An Answer to Jehovah's Witnesses, by Robert M. Bowman.
This is a study of the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity. However,

Confronting The Cultist In The New Age by Jay Howard. From the book jacket:
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves...." Matthew 7:15 NIV
The Unification Church. Jehovah's Witnesses. Scientology. The Way International. Unitarian Universalism. The Mormons. The Church of Christ, Scientist. New Age proponents.
These are just a few of the many false religions about which Jesus forewarned His disciples. Many people follow them blindly, wrongly convinced they have finally found the truth. Confronting the Cultist in the New Age not only exposes the identity of cults but examines their erroneous beliefs, which include:
* False Christology
* Denial of the Bible as the Word of God
* Uncertainty of eternal salvation
* Rejection of the Trinity
* Belief in salvation by works
By gaining insight into the tenets of these religions, you will be equipped to challenge their beliefs with the truths of God's Word. Reach out to false prophets and their followers by Confronting the Cultist in the New Age with confidence--and compassion.
