Some Recommended Books for the Christian Activist and Thinkers





“The Barbarian hopes – and that is the mark of him, that he can have his cake and eat it too.He will consume what civilization has slowly produced after generations of selection and effort, but he will not be at pains to replace such goods, nor indeed has he a comprehension of the virtue that has brought them into being. Discipline seems to him irrational, on which account he is ever marvelling that civilization, should have offended him with priests and soldiers…. In a word, the Barbarian is discoverable everywhere in this, that he cannot make: that he can befog and destroy but that he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.

We sit by and watch the barbarian. We tolerate him in the long stretches of peace, we are not afraid. We are tickled by his irreverence; his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creed refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond, and on these faces there are no smiles.”

Hilaire Belloc

Countless Christians battle intimidation, which is camouflaged and subtle. Many feel the effects–depression, confusion, lack of faith–without knowing its root. Bevere guides readers below the surface to see the roots of intimidation.

Readers will learn to identify intimidation and know how to break its hold. Bevere explains how the fear of God keeps us from a life






Jesus & Justice Paperback – October 25, 2009


Jesus commissioned every believer to be an “Agent of Justice” with access to a heavenly court for the purpose of extending His Kingdom. Men like Mordecai Hamm, who won Billy Graham to Christ, understood this and confronted the evil of their generation with signs and wonders of God’s justice in manifestation. This teaching restores the boldness of the early church by once again possessing the foundation stones comprising the “Doctrine of Christ” in Acts 13 that blinded a false prophet and opened a region to the gospel. This book empowers the church to represent Jesus as King in a hostile culture!
