 7) You’ve Heard It Said, 15 Biblical Misconceptions that Render Christians Powerless,    Gary DeMar, Wolgemuth & Hyatt, Publishers, Inc., Brentwood, Tennessee
You’ve heard it said: “The world is evil. Christians should be neutral. You cannot legislate morality. Christians should not be involved in political issues.”  These are issues of doctrinal importance that Christians have been hearing and believing for years.  They are also things many of us have misunderstood.  And our misunderstanding has trapped us in sinful inactivity.  Gary DeMar’s book is an excellent resource against true sounding, but sinfully false theological sound bites many evangelicals have accepted on cult-like blind faith.  Just as any deceived person will be judged by God, so will these evangelicals that have failed to search the scriptures to see whether such things are true.  (Acts 17:11)

9) Slaughter of the Dissidents, Volume 1
   – The Shocking Truth about Killing the Careers of Darwin Doubter, Dr. Jerry Bergman
     Published by: Leafcutter Press

He [Dr. Bergman] has proved beyond question that true Christianity in general, and supernatural creation in particular, are under nationwide bigoted attack by our  leading educators, our news media, our courts and practically our whole intellectual  establishment.  All Christians, and conservative non-Christians as well, need to become aware of this situation and would be well advised to read this book.   Henry M. Morris, Founder of the Institute for Creation Research

 10) The Rebirth of America, Editor: Nancy Leigh DeMoss Published by The Arthur S. DeMoss Foundation

This is a beautiful book with lots of photographs.  This book covers a wide selection of general issues involving history, present day issues, and public policies with stories of spiritual renewals.  It would be a shame to hide this book on a shelf and not leave it in an accessible place.  One cannot breeze through it without picking up bite-size bits of wisdom and inspiration for hope.
