Tim’s Books

churchinoutThe majority of America’s churches face stagnant or declining membership numbers and are uncertain as to how to reverse that trend. Church Inside Out offers an approach to community evangelism that doesn’t call for a compromise in terms of doctrine nor major investments in terms of staff or facilities. It is a how-to guide for the congregation that wants to increase its impact on the community around it.

This book can also be taught as a part of the church’s small group ministry. A companion Church Inside Out Workbook is available for each group member.

Letters from the Lamb takes the first-century message from the letters of Revelation and makes it intelligible to the twenty-first century reader.

Using information gleaned from archaeology, historical writings and careful examination of the biblical text, Timothy Archer helps the reader see the letters through first-century eyes.

Steve Ridgell then takes that ancient message and makes it pertinent to the modern reader, letting the words of Jesus come alive for today’s world.
