Mr. Pierce is a Christian author who has long been interested in not only the Bible, but also ancient history, apologetics, economics, ethics, philosophy, science, spirituality, theology, unsolved mysteries, and in the practical applications of this knowledge.

You will discover much of what he’s learned in Return to Genesis: What Ancient History Reveals About Christ, the Church, and the Kingdom. This book is the culmination of over seven years of study. Mr. Pierce brings new ideas to the table, but most of them originate from the Bible itself. The ancient Hebrews’ understanding of God and salvation bears little resemblance to our Americanized, modernized, postmodernized, sectarianized, secularized, and Judaized form of Christianity.

"As stated in other reviews, this book is quite lengthy and I have to admit that I'm not all the way through it yet, but I have loved what I have read so far. As soon as I saw this book, I knew I wanted to read it and I was beyond delighted when I..." Read more of this review »
The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers by Amy Hollingsworth
"I loved and still love Mister Rogers. Keep that in mind when I say that I didn't care for this book a lot. At first I was afraid that I'd become jaded and cynical, but then I realized, it's not Mister Rogers I don't like. It's the author. Here are..." Read more of this review »
The Swedish Atheist, the Scuba Diver and Other Apologetic Rab... by Randal Rauser
"The evangelicalism I grew up in placed a high premium on apologetics–being able to give a reasoned answer to the hope we have within us. For us, that meant defending the faith against any and all challengers. I had trite-answers-for-tough-question..." Read more of this review »

That's unfortunate because
