Treating Africa's Headaches: Beyond Monkey Solutions

By Samuel Koranteng-Pipim, PhD  My plea in this article is that, in our well-meaning effort to do something about the plight of our continent, we must first correctly diagnose the problem. Failure to do so will result in offering “monkey solutions.”And “monkey solutions” are more deadly th...

Courage: Taking a Stand on Women's Ordination

COURAGE is an an engaging, easy-to-read, and informative book on women’s ordination. It distinguishes facts from fiction, truth from error, and logic from emotions to present a compelling case for Biblical integrity, godliness, and service. Whether you’re currently for, against, or neutral on the issue, this COURAGE book will force you to declare or take a stand—and will challenge you to defend your position. It is arguably the clearest and most enlightening treatment of the subject in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Discover why.

Must We Be Silent?

This volume is not a bedtime story, although some Bible students will stay up late reading it. Neither is it a devotional book, though it will lead some to serious heart-searching. It is certainly not an inspirational volume, although it will fire up some saints to rejoice and encourage them to hold on.  Rather, Must We Be Silent? is an apologetic book, a work designed to defend sound biblical teaching by counteracting the false.

Here We Stand

At a time when it has become fashionable for church leaders, scholars, and members to be vague as to where they stand on some of the new trends in the church, this eye-opening book brings together some 40 of the finest Adventist thought-leaders who are willing to take a stand for sound Biblical teaching and practices. Like Martin Luther in his day, they also evaluate new trends in the areas of of (1) New methods of church planting and church growth, (2) New questions about our doctrines, (3) New views on Creation, (4) New styles of worship and music, (5) New issues on marriage, (6) New changes in local church leadership, and (7) New structure for the church. 

Receiving the Word

This classic work explains why some thought leaders of the church no longer accept the Bible as fully inspired, trustworthy, and the sole-authoritative norm for doctrine and practice. The book also shows how new views about the Bible is impacting our biblical teachings and lifestyle. This eye-opening work explains in an easy-to-understand way what higher--criticism is all about--and why a Bible-believing Christian cannot embrace the so-called "historical critical method."

Searching the Scriptures

This 96-page book puts to rest the mistaken notion that ordaining women as elders or pastors is cultural issue to be decided by the cultural preferences of different segments of the world church. By carefully explaining what the issues are and are not, the book compellingly reveals that women's ordination is a theological issue that should settled by the Bible.
