This list may be added to as and when I find teaching that doesn't fit too well into a 'theme' as the previous sets of notes do, although some studies do belong together (such as 'Marriage and Divorce', 'Women' and 'Homosexuality'). Some of these belong to other series of notes such as the Commentaries but they turned out to be studies on themes and so are linked to here - and some are the basis upon which some of the statements elsewhere are made.

Poetry (7K)
A brother in Christ and friend, Les Dernie, kindly allowed me to reproduce some of his poems here which, although they don't deal with the cross directly, are an extension and ministry of his faith

The Fourth Gentile Kingdom (11MB)
The author, CG Ozanne, has kindly allowed me to provide a scanned copy of this book for access and download. I refer to it several times in my various discussions of 'The End Times' and 'Biblical Prophecy' and it has always been my intention to somehow make it more accessible to the Internet Community - with the purchase of a decent scanner, it came to fruition. Unfortunately, the web page is 11MB (to be able to read the text, this final size was necessary - it takes 40 minutes for a Dial-Up connection, 4 minutes for a 'slow' Broadband connection) but, once accessed, it can be saved for offline reading. More information is available on the web page.

The Fate of Empires (2.5MB)
This item has now been removed as the Executors of/the person responsible for the Estate of Sir John Glubb has requested it so.

Another Wave Rolls In (8.2MB)
Written by Frank Bartleman and abridged to give the work 'clearer focus and greater force' (so says the Preface), this booklet charts the 'Azusa Street Revival' of the first decade of the twentieth century in California. Although the full version is still available in book form, this edition has long since gone out of print to my knowledge. It is, however, all that's necessary to see how the revival was founded, not in signs and wonders but in commitment and self-sacrifice.

Revival Fire (188KB)
This work by Charles Finney sees the Evangelist looking back on his life and trying to explain why the revivals that he'd taken part in and witnessed were no longer happening to the same extent at the current time.

Rodd and Marco (101MB)
It's been a long time since I've been able to carry 'Jurassic Church' and 'The Acts Files' by evangelists Rodd and Marco but, finally, they're back on the site for free download and use.
Please remember that these are being given freely by Rodd and Marco for personal use and, should any other use be made of them, Marco Palmer should be contacted for permission.

Churches That Abuse
and 'Recovering From Churches That Abuse' by Ronald M Enroth. Two books are linked to this web page dealing with problems mainly centred around 'Heavy Shepherding' and 'Legalistic' fellowships. It's very easy to get hung up into a judgmental attitude and to see 'demons behind the wallpaper' but, if prayerfully used, the warnings contained herein can protect us from making similar mistakes and causing irreparable damage within the Church.
