New Beginnings Understanding the Basic Principles of the Christian Faith
New Beginnings was written to help the reader develop a greater understanding of the basic principles of Christianity. Thousands of people come to faith in Jesus Christ every year, but they are not prepared to progress in their faith because of a lack of biblical knowledge. Some common questions I hear from new and mature Christians alike is: “What is the meaning behind the things I hear and see at church?” “What is the next step in my faith?” This book is a great resource to help answer these questions. New Beginnings can be used in a group or individual study. It is perfect for Sunday School or Wednesday night classes. There are 13 chapters, which include subjects such as “What is Sin?”; “Who is God?”; “What is Communion”; “What is Baptism” and “What is Faith?” The author’s simple style and scriptural insight make this book an excellent tool for anyone who seeks a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Regardless of your spiritual background, New Beginnings was written for those who desire to build a solid biblical foundation in their Christian faith.
This book was updated in 2021 to include a new 13th chapter on Prayer. This book is now being used in many different Church denominations, in 8 different countries and in 4 different languages (English, Spanish, Farsi, & Japanese).
Be Transformed: By the Spirit of the Living God

Fishers of Men; Becoming a Dynamic Disciple of Jesus Christ
This book was written for Christians who desire a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Fishers of Men is the sequel to the author's other books New Beginnings: Understanding the Basics Principles of the Christian Faith and Be Transformed: By the Spirit of the Living God. Two of these books have been translated into four different languages, and are used in multiple countries and in many different denominations. Over 25,000 books have been sent out to prisons and jails, and they are impacting lives for Jesus everywhere they go!

This book is a wonderful resource that can help you: Grow in your faith; Fall more deeply in love with Jesus; Learn how to share your faith with others; Learn about your Spiritual Gifts and how to use them; Learn how to serve God and others more effectively; and Discern God's Will for Your Life.
