"Why Jesus has to be the Messiah"

Author and Bible scholar, H.D. Shively, directs us back through the centuries to explore the foreshadows and typologies that God has so brilliantly woven through His word to verify “Why Jesus has to be the Messiah.”

You will be brought to an understanding of the unique plan of redemption for mankind that God has orchestrated from the beginning of creation.

You will understand how God and the Messiah are unified, and why it is not idolatry to worship God through Him.

You will be escorted through the writings of Moses and the prophets on a journey that leads to only one conclusion: Jesus is the prophesied Messiah.

"I have been truly blessed. It is very well written, clear and accessible to 'lay' readers as well as a challenge to students and scholars." - Rev. B. Rumble

You Can’t Get to Heaven without a
Space Suit

"You can't get to Heaven without a Spacesuit," is a unique explanation of the atonement of Jesus Christ that shows us from the Scriptures the “Spiritually Scientific” reason why Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The author effectively refutes the increasingly common response to the Gospel that God will accept anyone as long as their good deeds outweigh the bad. We are shown the technical reason why God’s plan for the redemption of the human race as outlined in the Old and New Testaments, must be followed precisely or we cannot be properly outfitted to survive in Heaven’s holy atmosphere. “Space Suit” is a wonderful approach to conveying the Gospel message and the perfect explanation of the Gospel for folks in this “new age.” This message will also reinforce believers in their faith and equip them with a fresh, creative way to share the Gospel with others. "Space Suit" is a wonderful resource for youth groups, Sunday Schools and Bible studies.

The Jezebel Agenda

The Jezebel spirit will be the prevailing spirit in the church in the United States in these latter days. What is the Jezebel spirit? How does it enter the church, and what are its goals and motives? What are the three major identifying characteristics of a Jezebel spirit? How is this spirit eliminated from the church and individuals? Using the Scriptures and the author’s experiences, these questions are answered in “The Jezebel Agenda.” The Jezebel spirit is a religious spirit, but it is not the only one that can cause havoc in a church or individual. Part two of this book, "Experiencing the Religious Spirit," is an examination of the same religious spirit that instigated Jesus' crucifixion, and pollutes the faith of many Christians today. This book is a must read for anyone in ministry and all those who are concerned for the spiritual welfare of others. Learn how you can defend yourself and your church from this spirit’s deadly deceptions.

The Bible and the Poor

Are some Christians today allowing a political agenda to override the authority of God’s word concerning the poor? “The Bible and the Poor” answers this question with a definite, “Yes!” Writing from her own experiences with homelessness and forty years of Biblical scholarship, the author examines what the scriptures actually teach with some of today’s popular misconceptions about the individual’s and government’s responsibility to care for “The Least of These.” The author’s own experiences with homelessness provides a unique perspective on a subject that is, according to the scriptures, the most important moral issue in the Bible.
