PATTERNS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION
“Patterns in the Book of Revelation” discovers Jesus Christ as Deliverer and Saviour of the planet as follows. Through the messages to the Seven Churches we see the care of Christ for his people. In the Seven Seals Jesus triumphs over the consequences of disobedience inspired by the devil. Under the Seven Trumpets Jesus Christ protects two thirds of the planet from Satan’s siege. Through the Seven Plagues Jesus rescues his people off the planet that is destroying itself. In the Millennium the saints are safe in heaven and the planet is desolate. Finally the New Earth demonstrates that God and man are reconciled for eternity.
Revelling in God’s Righteousness
“Revelling in God’s Righteousness” is a commentary on the book of Romans in which the heart of the gospel is laid bare for the searching soul. The book of Romans describes the lengths to which God has gone to, through his Christ, to change the way we think about yourselves and each other and our Creator and Redeemer. It is this life changing attitudinal shift that the apostle Paul is anxious for the reader to experience.

For God’s Sake
“For God’s Sake” is a primer in the character of God. It attempts to describe the true God (John 17:3) to which Jesus Christ pointed by his life, death and resurrection. It answers many of the questions that have been raised and continue to be raised with more urgency in the 21st century. What is free choice? Does God use violence to achieve a peaceful end? Are God and Jesus Christ essential the same? Who sent the flood? Did God need the cross so he could forgive us? Is God in control? Why does God not prevent the abuse of the weak? This book is an easy read and inspires the reader to worship Jesus Christ and his Father.

Towards a Cross-Centered Hermeneutic
“Towards a Cross-centered Hermeneutic” suggests that any part of Scripture must be interpreted through the Jesus-lens. This is because the cross reveals the character of God under the greatest possible stress that can be experienced on the planet. Anything that we say about God must be congruent with the way Jesus Christ treated people from the cross. This workbook covers basic words used in any discussion of how to read the Bible, different hermeneutics, a Cross-centered hermeneutic and challenges in the Old Testament which seem to portray a very different God to Jesus Christ. A list of resources are given at the end of the workbook.
