Books

These are only my books for adults. The books I’ve written for children and teenagers, including a series of six books of true missionary stories, a series of Christian biographies, and two devotional books, can be seen at the website www.hiddenheroesmissionarystories.com.

The Untwisting Scriptures series is written for victims and survivors of spiritual abuse, to help them unravel ways God’s Word has been used to keep them prisoner. My goal is to help them walk out of that spiritual abuse, in freedom.

Untwisting Scriptures that were used to tie you up, gag you and tangle your mind: Book 1 Rights, Bitterness, and Taking Up Offenses.

Some of the teachers whose teachings are refuted in this book are Bill Gothard, Bryan Lorritts, and Nancy Leigh DeMoss. This book emphasizes the truth of who Jesus really is and what He really wants for His people.

Unholy Charade is a wake-up call to the churches about domestic abuse in our midst, how deceptively charming and normal a terrible abuser can seem, what the abuse does to the victims, and how Christians can help. Filled with many first-person accounts from people that either pastor Jeff Crippen (the primary author) or I (the collaborating author) know personally.

 


TDTWS front cover finalTear Down This Wall of Silence
is another wake-up call to the churches, this one about sexual abuse in our midst. We want to help Christians understand abusers and abuse and know how to help survivors of abuse—such very important topics, because approximately 1 in 3 or 4 will be abused by the time they turn 18, and even more after reaching adulthood. The victims and survivors of sexual abuse are all around us, and several of them provided us with anonymous first-person accounts. For this book, I collaborated with pastor Dale Ingraham, the primary author.

“How can I turn my heart and mind to the Lord when I can’t even think?” Writing out a prayer when our minds are clear can help us when our minds are clouded and confused by the enemy, which can happen when we’re working in a world of darkness. Prayer Armor for Defense against the Enemy’s Flaming Darts is written for those who are being assaulted in their thoughts so much that they find it difficult or impossible to pray, which of course is the time when we most need to pray.
