LETTERS TO THE CHURCH is a fitting manual for the Revelation Christian. All the precepts are in the seven letters in Revelation 1:9 - 3:22 to help us keep the faith, stay in sound doctrine, and reach out to those who are perishing. I hope and pray that this book will help the reader to be an “overcomer”.

Master List Of Cult, New Age, Pro-Homosexual And Other Non-Christian Books Being Sold In Christian Bookstores
compiled by Bud Press, April 24, 2004

To the Reader: The following is a Master List of Heretical, Cultic, New Age Movement and Pro-Gay/Homosexual authors/books found advertised and promoted within numerous, major online Christian bookstores. While special care has been taken to provide current and accurate information, the reader is encouraged to check and verify the names prior to their removal.

While the "Pro-Gay/Homosexual" list contains authors who are homosexual, it does not mean that all of the authors are homosexual.

Certainly, this list is not confined to just on-line Christian bookstores. It may be applied to walk-in Christian bookstores as well.

For your convenience, the list is arranged in alphabetical order and in a single line. Information about the authors and books may be located by conducting a Google Search on the author's names or the "Description" section of your online bookstore.

This Master List may be updated as needed, and will be of great use to customers, employees, managers and owners of both walk-in and on-line Christian bookstores. Therefore, please use this list as the Lord leads.

Please note the new category, Centering/Contemplative Prayer. For a detailed analysis of this phenomenon, please refer to the book, A Time of Departing by Ray Yungen.

Your comments and questions are welcomed. Until then, may the Lord bless you in your efforts to defend the faith, protect the flock and expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Jude 3; Acts 20:27-32; Ephesians 5:11).
