Contemplative Spirituality, Cultic, Emerging Church, Heretical, Homosexual, Lesbian, New Age, Pro-Gay, Purpose Driven, Transgendered, and Word-Faith Authors and Books Advertised and Promoted within Online and Walk-in Christian Bookstores Worldwide

Revised & Updated: October 1, 2007

To the Reader: The following MASTER LIST consists of authors and books found advertised and promoted within online Christian bookstores worldwide. Certain books may be ordered online from walk-in Christian bookstore databases. Although special care has been taken to provide current and accurate information, the reader is encouraged to check and verify the names prior to their removal. While the Homosexual, Lesbian, Pro-Gay, Transgendered category contains authors who are either homosexual, lesbian, transgendered, or pro-gay, not all of the authors are homosexual or lesbian or transgendered. In each category, the authors' names are arranged in alphabetical order and in asingle line. Information about the authors and books may be located by conducting a Google Search on the author's name ( or by reading the "Description" section on the book provided by the online bookstore. The title (name) of the author's book is in italics.

Research Tip: Use quotation marks and the + sign to centralize your research topic. Example: "Benny Hinn" + "false prophet".

Although positive changes have taken place within the online and walk-in Christian bookstores, it is important that website managers and employees continuously monitor their websites and databases to ensure that solid, Biblebased materials are being presented to the body of Christ. As long as a bookstore claims to be Christian, it should be Christian through and through. Indeed, the spiritual welfare of Christians and those searching for the real Jesus should be foremost in the minds of everyone involved within the Christian book industry. This MASTER LIST will be updated regularly, and will be of great use to bookstore affiliates, customers, distributors, employees, managers, owners, publishers and vendors of both online and walk-in Christian bookstores.

Acknowledgements: The MASTER LIST has been made possible through the valuable assistance of Christians worldwide. Their love for the Lord, the truth of His word, and concern for the spiritual welfare of their fellow Christians are first and foremost in their lives. Indeed, their courage is remarkable. Your comments and questions are welcomed. Until then, may the Lord bless you in your efforts to test all things, defend the faith, guard the flock, and expose the unfruitful works of darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:21; Jude 3; Acts 20:27-32; Ephesians 5:11). Sincerely in Christ,
