This is a collection of rare and hard-to-find Bible study materials for the serious minded, hungry-hearted students of Scripture, as well as important selections for the Christian home.

We are often asked to recommend books. The requests come from believers who hunger for material with substance. Here is a collection, which in our opinion, are the best books in print. Most of these books are "unknown" to the members of the Body of Christ at large. And most are not available at your local "Christian" bookstore. These books are available here at StudyShelf.com

Be Likeminded (#1046) by Daniel Andersen. Christ is the basis of Christian unity, and when Paul exhorts believers  to be "likeminded" he is not entreating them to comply with the same code or creed, or to conform to the same confession or catechism. Rather he is appealing to them to accept others as Christ, Himself, accepts them. ISBN: 1934251364 / 9781934251362 -- 54pp. BK $10.95

The Believer's Warfare: Wearing the Armor of Light in the Darkness of this World (#7000) by Clyde L.

Church in Ruins, The: Brief Thoughts on II Timothy (#3325) Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. This brief survey of Paul’s last epistle will reveal that while almost 2000 years have transpired, the condition of the church has remained the same, and indeed has worsened in accordance with Paul’s warning to Timothy. This book is not a call for a re-awakening of “the church,” because it is apparent that this is not Father’s plan. Rather, it is a call to individual men – men whose place in the Christian religious system has left them empty, stagnant, and restless – to awaken to Father’s call to be His faithful servant and stand outside of that system to look for other faithful men as well.

Heaven’s Embassy: The Divine Plan & Purpose of the Home (#5675) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. The home is central to all of God’s dealings with man throughout the course of time. It is His Divine “institution” and “organization” upon the earth; and for the believer, it is the Embassy of Heaven. An embassy is “the residence or office of an ambassador.” Since the believer is an ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:14-21), his home is thus the Divine Embassy of heavenly ministry. Pauline ministry is centered in the homes of believers. This is even the true sphere of the Body of Christ; for this reason our apostle speaks of “church in thy house.” This book doesn’t focus upon the external specifics of the ministry of Heaven’s Embassy (such as hospitality); that will be saved for another volume. Instead, it looks at the inner-workings of the Embassy itself; focusing upon its very nature and internal purpose and function. 250 pp. PB $19.95

The Outsiders: God’s Called-Out Ones A Biblical Look at the Church God’s Ecclesia (#4125) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. In 1995, after sixteen years of being in the “pastorate” the author walked away. He left the "religious system" by resigning from the very “church” and “ministry” he had formed.  In many ways this work is a testament to these actions. This testimony was thirty years in the making -- the results of a spiritual journey that the author found to be common to other saints scattered throughout the world and across history. This is an opportunity to explain why some who love the Lord no longer "go to church." It does not seek to persuade others to do something different; but rather to simply be who and what they already are “in Him.” This is an uncovering of the truth of the church, and an encouragement for the members of His Body to enjoy the position and standing “in Christ” that they already possess, realizing that they are truly “complete in Him” (Colossians 2:10), that He alone is their Life (Colossians 3:4), and that His Life is full of freedom (Galatians 5:1).  ISBN: 9781934251614 -- 128 page PB.

Pagan Christianity: Exploring the Roots of Our Church Practices (#3106) by Frank Viola & George Barna.  Have you ever wondered why we Christians do what we do for church every Sunday morning? Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions: Why do we "dress up" for church? Why does the pastor preach a sermon every Sunday? Why do we have pulpits and pews? Why do we have church buildings, steeples, choirs, and seminaries? Where did these things come from? This book proposes that most of what we Christians do in our churches has no root in the Scriptures! It rather has its origin in pagan culture. As shocking as that sounds, Viola proves his point by documenting every claim he makes. Fully footnoted, Pagan Christianity is the first book ever penned that documents the entire story of our modern church practices. If you are a Christian who is content with status quo "churchianity," then you will not want to read this book. It is reserved for those who are ready to embark on an eye-opening venture that challenges every aspect of their church experience.  Revised, Expanded, 293 page. Paperback. $17.95

The Purposes of God: and the True Basis of Redemption (4317) by Arthur P. Adams. This is a compilation of some of Adams’ smaller works that first appeared in his periodical The Spirit of the Word in 1885. Adams suffered greatly for the truths presented here. The riches found within these pages deserve to be preserved for future generations.

Rich Man and Lazarus, The: The Intermediate State (#3127) by E. W. Bullinger. It is the author's contention that when dealing with the subject of what happens at death, it is important that Christians confine themselves to what the Bible has to say and not turn to tradition. Some current views have more in common with the traditions taught by the Pharisees than with the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Suffering: God’s Forgotten Gift (#5150) Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Two gifts given to the believer are mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29. The first is “to believe on Him.” This is a glorious gift. Every believer has been given this gift from God. Those who possess it may not even fully recognize it as a gift from Him, but indeed faith is God’s wonderful gift to us. Faith is a rich gift from God, but there is also another gift from God to the believer, mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29, that is equally as glorious. The second gift is “also to suffer for His sake.” This, too, is a glorious gift. Every believer has been given this gift from God as well, but those who possess it often do not fully recognize it for what it is. Indeed, suffering for His sake similarly is God’s wonderful gift to us. Paul teaches us to embrace this second gift as well as we do the first! ISBN: 9781934251584 -- 100 page PB
