The Handmaidens Conspiracy: Book By Donna Howell
The veil was not the only thing that Christ s arrival on earth tore asunder. Social and religious barriers, serving to draw lines between specific people groups for thousands of years before His arrival, were suddenly in light of His Great Commission transformed. Never would a tax collector, a zealot, and a traditional Jew share a meal together in peace...but following just a short time in Jesus presence, these barriers crumbled. The influence that Christ had on the men in His day has been celebrated for two thousand years. The overlooked question within mainstream Christianity remains to be: What influence did He have upon women, and what statements did His words and actions make in relation to gender equality? Is it possible that while Jesus Christ, Himself, recognized appropriate gender roles, He also intentionally began the first Women s Liberation Movement? As sensational as this may sound, the proof is in the Word of God, and in the proper contextual analysis of it. IN THE HANDMAIDEN CONSPIRACY, YOU WILL: Follow the cultural and historic backdrop behind Paul s words in 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy the trouble verses in relation to the issue of women leadership in the Church and understand more properly what he was responding to when the epistles were written. Observe the Principal of Internal Consistency at play throughout repeated accounts of Scripture openly describing women preaching, teaching, prophesying, and leading with powerful voices in the Body of Christ and Saint Peter s acknowledgment that this very activity, foretold in Joel 2:28, began on the Day of Pentecost. Discover what the original Greek nouns and adjectives meant in Paul s greeting orders, the women that he was both commissioning and commending as fellow ministers of his own circle (Phoebe, Priscilla, Junia, and several others who were suddenly equal to men in ministerial commission), and the misleading translational and interpretational errors that continuously assist in perpetuating an erroneous concept that women should always remain silent in the work of Christ. Reflect upon the women Jesus knew, both from Scripture as well as in person, and the groundbreaking, permanent changes He made regarding their rights, their value, and their role in delivering His message to the world. Revisit and refine some ancient, yet inaccurate, ideas the Body of Christ has had regarding the Bible s most talked-about women, such as Eve, Mary (the mother of Christ), Mary Magdalene, Judge Deborah, Prophetess Huldah, and others. Understand why the prohibition of women as equals in leadership is not only unbiblical, it is actually doing harm to the Church today.



VOLUME ONE: The Apocrypha
In January of 2011, Bible researcher Tom Horn's house burned to the ground together with a library of ancient and scholarly books, which he had collected over thirty years. Feeling crippled to do research without these texts, he set out to begin rebuilding his library.
That's when he had an epiphany. How many other serious students of the Bible and history might also benefit from these historical records? In fact, how many times had he heard from researchers of religious history how they too wanted trustworthy print versions of these texts, uncontaminated like so many online versions are.
As a publisher, he decided to do something about it. The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts: Volume 1 (Defender Publishing, 580 pages, 8.5 X 11 Tradepaper, 29.95) is the first step in an aggressive plan to bring the most pertinent ancient books to the public in affordable, collectable editions. Volumes 2 and 3 will be available in 2012.
The Bible, as we hold it today, is esteemed by many religious institutions and especially Conservative Christians to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This doctrinal position affirms that the Bible is unlike all other books or collections of works in that it is free of error due to having been “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17).
While no other text can claim this same unique authority, Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature such as contained in this volume of The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts(Volume One—The Apocrypha: Includes the Books of Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees), provides literature that often precedes or follows the chronology of biblical texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context within the Word of God. Whether or not the information contained in the apocryphal literature is entirely precise—as is the canon of Scripture—these ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1).
The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts is therefore intended to be a supplemental resource for assisting serious researchers and students in the study of the Bible and Bible times.
Contained in this volume: The Book of Enoch, The Book of Jasher, The Book of Jubilees, 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, Susanna, Prayer of Azariah, Prayer of Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon, and Laodiceans.


Radicals: Book By Donna Howell
Throughout time, when it seemed mankind was slipping irrevocably into ungodly decay from which the world might never recover, God did something unexpected and released a fresh wind of His presence that awoke a remnant of believers. These revivalists and prophets in turn often departed ecclesiastical and cultural norms to preach the everlasting Gospel with innovative flare. While in their days they were thought to be radicals, they nevertheless pushed back darkness with the Sword of the Spirit and liberated minds to comprehend their estate and need of Jesus (2 Cor. 10:5). The book you now hold argues effectively that we have entered such a time again and the evidence is reflected in familiar anti-establishment sentiments today both religious and political. We are rapidly ripening for a spiritual awakening within the Church of Christ, and this book leaves no illusions about how that could suddenly unfold, unexpectedly giving rise to a new breed of post-denominational radicals infused with the supernatural power of God. RADICALS EXAMINES: A refreshing analysis of the Epistle of James, written by Christ s half-brother who exposed the sins of the Early Church while illustrating the timeless liberating power of the Word Modern trials facing the Body, the eerie similarities they hold to the trials of the Early Church, and why we are commanded to count them all as joy The tests of the faith, and why we must get serious about overcoming them individually and corporately How the Church still participates in favoritism of today s privileged class, and the role that plays in stunting the Great Commission The Rahabs of today, why they may quickly be replacing our traditions, and why that s a positive thing Pop heresies in our contemporary sermons and worship services, and the overhaul needed to return to true faith The development of our current Friendship with the World Church, and the steps required to separate from it.


Final Fire: Book By Donna Howell
IS THE NEXT GREAT AWAKENING RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER? In the midst of intense global societal discord persecution, rights activism, racial tension, intense political hostility, and the resurgence of anti-establishment counterculture many have lost faith in governments and even in church leadership to provide answers and stability. But this feeling this underlying sensation that pricks our national cognition with a constant needling, demanding to be fought against and yet powerful enough that it inspires hopeless demoralization has occurred before. From the Bohemian Reformation of John Wycliffe and Jan Hus in the 1300s to the Jesus People of the 60s and 70s, every era ripe with public dejection and faith-drought foreshadowed spiritual awakenings. These often began in the unlikeliest of places by the most inconceivable of personalities, and then spread like uncontrollable brushfires across the land resulting in millions surrendering their hearts and lives to the Lord. As today s world becomes more desperate to experience such personal meaning and social healing, the world is inadvertently moving toward another Great Awakening! IN FINAL FIRE, YOU WILL LEARN: How God used simple men, women, and youth of the past unqualified by human and finite standards to irreversibly change the world. What practices were employed that reformed traditional religious rituals into personal relationships with Christ, and how those methods are poised to be repeated in the near future. Why the age of social networking through virtual technology is keeping families and communities from real human relationships, how this relates to an international and spiritual hunger for revival, and how this very same technology will pave the way for an even vaster spreading of the Gospel. Which current events are now contributing to the largescale unrest mankind all feels, and how this is lining up to unleash what these authors believe to be the Greatest Awakening yet! Evidence from around the globe that the Awakening may have already started, and will be joined by growing demonstrations of miracles, healings, prophetic visions, and angels in the days just ahead!
