1. Souls Under Siege

A gripping, inspiring book by Joe Crews. You wont want to put it down! "It is the author's hope that these stories of spiritual conflict and victory will encourage many to be more committed to soul-winning."   

2. Mission Pilot

This is the David Gates story. What a blessed missionary, what a blessed story. If you didn't know believe that angels exists ... and interacts with mankind and intervenes to help when we are involved in the work of God ... think again! I had goose bumps when I read chapter 9!  I felt like my head was "growing" several times!  I had to stop for breath along the way sometimes! It was like a suspense thriller at times! God Bless you as you read.

3. Vanishing Saints: Is the Rapture Real?

What an absorbing book! Don't let the title fool you. This book went well beyond my expectations and covers much more than I thought it would ... let's just say it goes deep into the background ... and thus made the rapture story so much easier to understand.  Praise the Lord.  Truth is sweet! 

4. Guides Greatest Miracle Stories

"If you wonder whether God still cares, or if your faith needs a shot in the arm, you will cherish these believe-it-or-not true stories from Borneo to Kalamazoo to Venezuela that show that, when we need Him most, God is there."

Most times, as I read this book I either had my mouth open or, had to pause and just "let it sink in", re-read once and sometimes twice or just shout "Praise the Lord!!!" We .... serve .... an .... AWESOME GOD!!!

5. Guides Greatest Prayer Stories

We must learn to (really) pray. Especially in these - the very last - days of earth's existence.  When we pray ... God moves mountains! When we have even a little faith ... God honors that faith.  Chapter 22 was great! ("Fast Food")

6. Reconnecting the Family

Now, this book is a MUST READ.  This book is like a very small gun that shoots like a cannon!  It had a very profound impact on our lives. Praise the Lord! Every family should own this book, read it and apply the principles.  Also, every Family Life Director in every church should own one. Get one. You will be blessed. 

7. The Search for the True Church

For the sincere seeker, this book will prove to be very valuable. With a honest heart and an open mind two persons have come to accept present truth ... and were baptized! This was one of the books that led them helped them make the decision.  If you are really searching ... you just have to read this book.  A great witnessing tool! Praise the Lord! To God be the Glory!

8. How to be a Victorious Christian (Thomas Davis)

I did at least one Divine Hour Sabbath sermon and several presentations at Bible Class, Wednesday Night Prayer and Praise Service and Personal Ministries ten minutes time .... before I even finished reading the book. Many persons wanted to borrow the book...before I was even done reading it.  It has richly blessed my heart and enriched and enlivened my spiritual experience. It really inspired me on to righteousness. A very good, powerful and practical guide ... and also a great witnessing tool. This is one of the books I took time reading ... to "savor the flavor".   Get one!!  You need one for yourself.

9. 60 Ways to Energize Your Life

"It's filled with personal stories of victory over poor health, exciting insights into the human body and its Creator, and inspiring parallels between the Christian walk and the world of science."

A really great book to read! This is not a book to be told about ... you just have to read it yourself! 

10. Almost Home: Hope for the Journey

"G. Edward Reid provides a wake-up call for those living at the end of history, suggests some midcourse corrections, and gives encouraging assurance that God is still in control of earth's destiny."

What can I say? I am at a loss for words.  A truly, truly inspiring book. You WILL be blessed as you read.

11. The Richest Caveman: The Doug Batchelor Story

"A thrilling testimony to the transforming power of God's Word!" 

I totally agree!  Get one, read it and keep it. You will be happy you did. Praise the Lord! To God be the Glory!! Praise the Lord! 


These books are used mainly for Battle Cry Ministry's Mentoring Program but also to assist in providing reading materials for its Small Group Evangelism Support Program.  Each book from Amazingfacts (and It is Written, et al) is blessed / prayed over and the Holy Spirit is asked to use them as instruments to bless everyone that reads them ... and to lead souls to the Kingdom of God.   We serve an Awesome God and we are confident that God will help us to meet some of these persons whom He wins in the New Jerusalem ... we know, because we are sure He is the one that has called us to this work. We hope that the little we can do will go a far way in reaching many souls for Jesus / to prepare hearts & minds for the Kingdom of God. Praise the Lord!! Praise the Lord!! Praise the Lord!! Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son and Glory to the Holy Ghost.

These are just a few of the books we have acquired and read. We are continuing to read and we receive blessings aplenty ... join us!

Facts on the Bible:

Psalm 118:  

Its the middle chapter of the entire Bible.

Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible and Psalm 119 is the longest.

The Bible has 594 chapters before Psalm 118 and 594 after it.

Add up all the chapters except Psalm 118 and you get 1188.

Psalm 118 verse 8 is the middle verse of the entire Bible. The message of this central verse is "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man." This is perhaps the central theme of the entire Bible.

And, Battle Cry Ministry says, PRAISE THE LORD!!!
