New Evangelicalism: The New World Order
by Paul Smith

Like cascading dominoes, the intentional departure from believing the Bible is inerrant has plunged the church of the 21st century down the treacherous slippery slope of accommodation and compromise.

* Why have so many evangelicals identified themselves as new evangelicals?

* What is the relationship between Fuller Seminary, the Purpose Driven Church, and the Emergent Church Movement?

* How is the Emergent Church push for globalization harmonizing with the new world order in these prophetic last days?


Addressing these and many more questions with riveting case studies coupled with staggering and sobering documentation, the author unfolds the shocking progression of ideas that were birthed in a nest of aberrant church beliefs.

Living on Borrowed Time
  by Dr. David Reagan


This book answers many questions concerning the second coming of Jesus including fulfilled prophecy, understanding the season we are in and the signs of the times, and perhaps the most convincing sign of the Lord's soon return.


A unique feature of the book is a prophecy forum composed of 22 Bible prophecy experts who reply to 11 questions concerning the biblical signs of the times that are supposed to signal the imminent return of Jesus. Over 300 pages!

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent
by Dr. Erwin Lutzer


Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern.
 We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

Many of you have read and followed these updates since well before we moved our family and ministry back to Seattle nearly 10 years ago. We made that transition specifically so we could be available to help care for Melanie's Mom, Berneice, and then over time for her Dad, Dale. We lost Mom in December of 2011 and this morning (December 13, 2013) Melanie's father, Dale, peacefully passed away at 90.
Dad Reed at a birthday celebration in 2008. His laugh was infectious! 

Though Dale's passing was not unexpected it is no less difficult for our family. Dad was deeply loved and will be missed by many.

Since Mom Berneice's went to Heaven in December, 2011, we have now suffered the loss of four loved ones. In the natural world it has been a real test but the Lord has seen us through. And, these occasions have given us ample opportunity to speak to others within our family about eternity and the need each of us have for a relationship with Christ. I'll be doing that again when I preside at Dad's funeral service on Wednesday this week. Please keep our family in prayer in these days, particularly on Wednesday.

We are grateful to have your prayers and support and are most grateful to our Savior and King for the opportunity to both serve and to honor Him during this season in our personal lives. 
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints."
- Psalm 116:15

PS... My Special Thanks 
I want to take just a moment to note that Melanie not only serves as loving wife, mother, and grandmother, but she is simply indispensable to our ministry in several capacities. However, during these years back here in the Northwest she has served her parents in what I believe is an extraordinary fashion disregarding her own health and well-being and acting as a godly, faithful advocate including many months of round-the-clock care giving. That era is now coming to a close. And I just want to say thanks Honey. I know you wouldn't have wanted it any other way but you are truly a rare blessing beyond words.
