We’ve Lost Our Way!

The family is disintegrating, the church perceived as irrelevant and our personal faith reduced to denominational conformance. Meanwhile, atheism, Islam and New Age religions are on the rise. We need more than inspiration, we need another reformation and you need to be part of it.

What is true Christianity? What is the church meant to be like? How is the Christian family supposed to function? How can we make a difference which will yield lasting fruit? It is time to discard the mountains of man’s traditions and seek answers from God Himself. After all, man’s methods and wisdom, apart from God, have proven a failure throughout history.

Find out the key to personal, family, church and national revival from the one who wrote The Book. If you care about your personal relationship with God, the multigenerational faithfulness of your family and the relevance of your church in an increasingly hostile world, this book is essential reading.

Editorial Reviews

I have found your books eminently satisfying; they are packed with things modern Christians need to understand.- Dallas Clarnette, Presbyterian Minister and Author, Journalist and former College lecturer. Your book 'Sufficiency of Scripture' is wonderful. It touches some subjects that are very dear to me, yet unfortunately very much neglected ...- Ninel Lazar, Romania It's no secret that the church is struggling and so are the families in it. We struggle with apathy and division. Programs and plans designed to excite teenagers about the church or create better leaders hit the market all the time, but all too often, the best and most effective answer book is left behind. The Sufficiency of Scripture is based on the "fundamental doctrine" that God's Word is sufficient to guide and instruct our personal lives, our homes and our church. This book was given to me by a visiting speaker at our midweek Bible study. I don't remember what we were talking about, but something made him reach into his backpack and challenge me to read this book. Dad asked to read it first and liked it so much we ended up reading it as a family during family devotions. I highly recommend this book.- Leah Good, USA I love how Mr. Stephen uses Scripture first, and then uses commentary and his opinion to explain his points and draw from the Scriptures, leaning heavily on the Word of God itself.- Rachel, Goodreads.comThe Sufficiency of Scripture the Key to Revival by Joseph StephenPaul says in 1 Corinthians 14:8, "If the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?" Unfortunately many churches today are giving an uncertain sound or even an erroneous one when it comes to the truths in God's Word.In his book, The Sufficiency of Scripture, Joseph Stephen gives a very clear trumpet sound. His emphasis is on establishing both the home and the church on a strong Biblical basis so they can then give a clear message to the nation.The book tackles many things we would rather leave alone. What responsibility do we accept for bringing up our children in the knowledge of God's Word? Is the husband the head of the family and is he showing Godly, loving leadership? How many assumptions do we make about what the Bible says without really checking it out? What message do we give in the way we dress? Church music, how much is truly Biblical? Does it rule our services or is it a servant helping us to worship God?Are we complacent, just drifting along? Abortion, divorce, adultery, homosexuality are all too common so we tend to turn a blind eye, but can we afford to? How do we handle our money? What is wise for us to look at on TV, in books and magazines, and what isn't? Politics, should we just ignore it or should we get involved? These are some of the things we are challenged on. You may disagree with some of what Joseph says but as you reflect on the Biblical basis he works on you will find your values and the reasons for them challenged and it will bring a fresh light to the Scriptures and what God requires of us. Repeatedly Joseph brings us back to what the Bible says. We may rightly say we are not going to be brought under bondage to a whole list of do's and don'ts, but if we are going to be honest before God we will have to look hard at our motives and whether we are truly living under the Lordship of Christ. The message in this book sets a Bible-based pattern for Christians whatever their country. So many families are dysfunctional. The teaching here will help to put them on a right path if people will commit their lives to God and His Word and children are taught the true foundation on which to build their lives. This book uses the Bible as its basis for everything. It challenges us to do the same.- Jim Shroeder BSc, Former Deputy Principal Tyndale Christian College & Missionary to PNG
