Book and Music Library

Although TLC Gathering does not own any books or music, the founders (of TLC) and other regular attenders personally own many Christian hardcover, paperback and audio books as well as music.   Though, also, many of the books the founders own are through Amazon Audible, there are still many audio books, paperback and hard cover books that are available to "Check Out".  Our books include those on theology, Christian living, apologetics, Christian fiction, Christian graphic novels as well as dramatized NKJV and NIV Audio Bibles. 

In the case of the music library, the majority of the music the founders own are in MPEG or AAC format via music that has been purchased through iTunes or Amazon music.  However, there are still around 300 Christian CD titles both recent and older that are able to be borrowed if you are a regular attendee of our Saturday Gatherings or bi-weekly studies.    These CDs include a variety of genres such as soft rock, pop, hymns, modern worship, symphonic, contemporary, alternative rock, heavy metal, R & B, and a little bit of hip hop, rap and country.

Feel free to click on the links below to browse either book or music library.  If you do choose the "check out" either books and/ or music, you are agreeing to NOT copy in any way the content of the music or books.  Checking them out is so you can enjoy them for a time and then return them back to the library.

Note: Although these are labeled "Christian" books and "Christian" music, we don't testify that all those who have performed the music or written the books are living lives that honor Christ (we certainly hope they are, but certainly can't keep track of everyone).  In addition, the theology found in the books or music is not, necessarily theology that TLC Gathering endorses.  So, though we endeavor to provide a good source of music and books that you can borrow, just know that all these works are not "The Bible " (other than those that literally are audio "bibles", of course!).

We are in the process of adding the book and music library.  It will likely take weeks, but titles will grow week by week, so keep checking back for additional books and music.  You can check out up to 2 books and 3 music cds at a time.

The Case For Christ.PNG

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.  Strobel challenges them with questions like, How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?  Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel’s tough, point-blank questions read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it’s not fiction. It’s a riveting quest for the truth about history’s most compelling figure.  The new edition includes scores of revisions and additions, including updated material on archaeological and manuscript discoveries, fresh recommendations for further study, and an interview with the author that tells dramatic stories about the book's impact, provides behind-the-scenes information, and responds to critiques of the book by skeptics. As The Case for Christ and its ancillary resources approach 10 million copies in print, this updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary readers.

Lee Strobel - The Case for Christ (Updated & Expanded)

Just where does fact end and fiction begin? The brilliant mix of fact and fiction in Dan Brown's Conspiracy story "The Da Vinci Code" raises serious questions regarding the origins and claims of Christianity. Many come away from the book shaken in their beliefs, wondering what is true? Questions like "Was Mary Magdalene really Jesus' wife and the mother of his child?" And more. McDowell skillfully separates facts from fallacy. This is a book you and your friends should have right now! One reviewer wrote "An excellent little book and very easy read. Written as an ongoing discussion among three college students who saw the DaVinci Code movie and then had many questions about the supposed "facts" in the book...only to discover that author Dan Brown is a brilliant author, but lousy historian who fabricates most of his "facts." An excellent little book that really makes you think and want to dig for the truth!"

Josh McDowell - The DaVinci Code - A Quest for Answers

When author Sam Harris attacked Christianity in Letter to a Christian Nation, reviewers called the book “marvelous” and a generation of readers—hundreds of thousands of them—were drawn to his message. Deeply troubled, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he had to respond. In The End of Reason, Zacharias underscores the dependability of the Bible along with his belief in the power and goodness of God. He confidently refutes Harris’s claims that God is nothing more than a figment of one’s imagination and that Christians regularly practice intolerance and hatred around the globe. If you found Sam Harris’s Letter to a Christian Nation compelling, the audiobook you are holding is exactly what you need. Dr. Zacharias exposes “the utter bankruptcy of this worldview.” And if you haven’t read Harris’ book, Ravi’s response remains a powerful, passionate, irrefutably sound set of arguments for Christian thought. The clarity and hope in this audiobook reaches out to listeners who know and follow God as well as to those who reject God.

Norman L. Geisler & Frank Turek - I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. // We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. But, N. T. Wright says, we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. // In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? // These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless.

N. T. Wright - Evil and the Justice of God

For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question above all: ''If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?'' Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or some reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, which neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God?  The greatest Christian thinker of all time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the Divine.

Having shared his journey of faith in the New York Times bestselling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi now examines Islam and Christianity in detail, exploring areas of crucial conflict and unpacking the relevant evidence.

In this anticipated follow-up book, Nabeel reveals what he discovered in the decade following his conversion, providing a thorough and careful comparison of the evidence for Islam and Christianity--evidence that wrenched his heart and transformed his life.  In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi recounted his dramatic journey, describing his departure from Islam and his decision to follow Christ.

Are the differences significant? Can we be confident that either Christianity or Islam is true? And most important, is it worth sacrificing everything for the truth? Nabeel shares stories from his life and ministry, casts new light on current events, and explores pivotal incidents in the histories of both religions, providing a resource that is gripping and thought-provoking, respectful and challenging. Both Islam and Christianity teach that there is No God but One, but who deserves to be worshiped, Allah or Jesus?

Steve Gregg - Revelation Four Views - A Parallel Commentary

Were you aware that three entirely different views of hell have been held by Christians throughout history? We have all heard the "traditional" view--that hell is a place of everlasting torment for the lost. But most have never heard that Christians from the earliest centuries also held other views--including the view that, in hell, sinners are annihilated and cease to exist, on the one hand, and the view that sinners are brought to repentance and restored to God, on the other.  All You Want to Know About Hell explains and critiques the three views on hell, presenting all the biblical  arguments for and against each view. The author does not espouse any one view, but present the evidence for each for the reader to decide for him/herself.

“There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.” Billy Graham Philip Yancey helps reveal what two thousand years of history covered up What happens when a respected Christian journalist decides to put his preconceptions aside and take a long look at the Jesus described in the Gospels? How does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the “new, rediscovered” Jesus—or even the Jesus we think we know so well? Philip Yancey offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work—his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection—and ultimately, who he was and why he came. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey presents a complex character who generates questions as well as answers; a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who wants to radically transform your life and stretch your faith. The Jesus I Never Knew uncovers a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. “No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same,” says Yancey. “Jesus has rocked my own preconceptions and has made me ask hard questions about why those of us who bear his name don’t do a better job of following him.”

The Pursuit of God.PNG

A soul-searching reflection on spirituality, A. W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God has been regarded as a classic Christian work since its publication in 1948. Tozer, a beloved, self-taught pastor, implores the reader to let go of material comforts to best cultivate a deeper spiritual life focused on the teachings of Christ. Tozer and his wife were firm practitioners of what he preached; the couple never owned a car and despite the success he found as a Christian writer, never profited greatly, as he donated much of his royalties to those in need.

Tozer’s The Pursuit of God is a spiritual meditation of timeless importance that has encouraged generations of readers to live more simply and deepen their relationships with God.

The studies within demonstrate the significance of AD 70 in redemptive-history as the old covenant closes and the new covenant opens.

Four Views On Eternal Security.PNG

Does the Bible support the concept of "once saved, always saved," or can a person lose his or her salvation? How do the Scriptures portray the complex interplay between grace and free will? These and related questions are explored from different angles in this thought-provoking Counterpoints volume. The contributors each state their case for one of four prominent views on eternal security: classical Calvinist, moderate Calvinist, reformed Arminian, and Wesleyan Arminian. In keeping with the forum approach of the Counterpoints series, each view is first presented by its proponent, then critiqued and defended. This fair and respectful approach allows you to weigh for yourself the strengths and weaknesses of the different doctrinal stances. By furnishing you with scholarly and thoughtful perspectives on the topic of eternal security, this book helps you sift through opposing views to arrive at your own informed conclusions. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

Divine Foreknowledge Four Views.PNG

The question of the nature of God's foreknowledge and how that relates to human freedom has been pondered and debated by Christian theologians at least since the time of Augustine. And the issue will not go away. More recently, the terms of the debate have shifted, and the issue has taken on new urgency with the theological proposal known as the openness of God. This view maintains that God's knowledge, while perfect, is limited regarding the future inasmuch as the future is "open" and not settled. Divine Foreknowledge: Four Views provides a venue for well-known proponents of four distinct views of divine foreknowledge to present their cases: Gregory A. Boyd of Bethel College presents the open-theism view, David Hunt of Whittier College weighs in on the simple-foreknowledge view, William Lane Craig of Talbot School of Theology takes the middle-knowledge view, and Paul Helm of Regent College, Vancouver, presents the Augustinian-Calvinist view. All four respond to each of the other essayists, noting points of agreement and disagreement. Editors James K. Beilby and Paul R. Eddy introduce the contemporary debate and also offer a conclusion that helps you evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of each view. The result is a unique opportunity to grapple with the issues and arguments and frame your own understanding of this important debate.

Predestination & Free Will.PNG

If God is in control, are people really free? This question has bothered Christians for centuries. And answers have covered a wide spectrum. Today Christians still disagree. Those who emphasize human freedom view it as a reflection of God's self-limited power. Others look at human freedom in the order of God's overall control. David and Randall Basinger have put this age-old question to four scholars trained in theology and philosophy. John Feinberg of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Norman Geisler of Dallas Theological Seminary focus on God's specific sovereignty. Bruce Reichenbach of Augsburg College and Clark Pinnock of McMaster Divinity College insist that God must limit his control to ensure our freedom. Each writer argues for his perspective and applies his theory to two practical case studies. Then the other writers respond to each of the major essays, exposing what they see as fallacies and hidden assumptions. A lively and provocative volume.

It is amazing that so many Christians call themselves Calvinists and yet so few actually understand the distinctives of Calvinist doctrine.

In The Lord and His Prayer, a series of pastoral reflections, N. T. Wright explores how the Lord's Prayer sums up Jesus' own agenda within his first-century setting.

Max Lucado - Just Like Jesus

This book shouts out a choice: Whom will you serve, give your life to, depend upon? Rebellious, self-willed, sinful people want to retain the right to decide themselves what way they will take. Jesus denies this option. Speaking on His behalf, the apostle Peter said, "There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Jesus is gentle, but He is not weak. He loves the sinner but is absolutely intolerant of sin. He is not a negotiator. He is Lord! In is this bristling truth that invites intolerance toward Christians. Jesus did not say, "Do your own thing; all roads lead to God." That would have made Jesus "politically correct," but Jesus is not politically correct. HE IS LORD.

The Last Days According to Jesus.PNG

Speculation and theories concerning what the last days have in store for us abound. In the hype of sensational books and movies, one important question is often obscured:   What did Jesus believe and teach about the end times and the timing of his return?  In his characteristically precise and compelling style, renowned theologian R.C. Sproul points us to the words of Christ as providing solid, biblical footing amid ever-shifting opinions about the age to come. He covers key questions, such as:
What exactly did Jesus teach about the last days on Mount Olivet?
What generation will witness the end?
What did Paul teach in his letters?
What did John teach in Revelation?
When is the resurrection?
When is the millennium?
In addition to answering these important questions about the last days, Dr. Sproul presents an authoritative explanation of biblical teaching about the end times and the timing of Christ's return.

R. C. Sproul - The Last Days According To Jesus

The renowned scholar, Anglican bishop, and best-selling author widely considered to be the heir to C. S. Lewis contemplates the central event at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus' crucifixion - arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in transforming our understanding of its meaning.  In The Day the Revolution Began, N. T. Wright once again challenges commonly held Christian beliefs, as he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope. Demonstrating the rigorous intellect and breathtaking knowledge that have long defined his work, Wright argues that Jesus' death on the cross was not only to absolve us of our sins, it was actually the beginning of a revolution commissioning the Christian faithful to a new vocation - a royal priesthood responsible for restoring and reconciling all of God's creation.  Wright argues that Jesus' crucifixion must be understood within the much larger story of God's purposes to bring heaven and earth together. The Day the Revolution Began offers a grand picture of Jesus' sacrifice and its full significance for the Christian faith, inspiring believers with a renewed sense of mission, purpose, and hope and reminding them of the crucial role the Christian faith must play in protecting and shaping the future of the world.

A. W. Tozer - Paths to Power

New Testament scholar N. T. Wright reveals how we have been misreading the Gospels for centuries, powerfully restoring the lost central story of the scripture: that the coronation of God through the acts of Jesus was the climax of human history. Wright fills the gaps that centuries of misdirection have opened up in our collective spiritual story, tracing a narrative from Eden to Jesus to today. Wright's powerful rereading of the Gospels helps us realign the focus of our spiritual beliefs, which have for too long been focused on the afterlife. Instead, the forgotten story of the Gospels reveals why we should understand that our real charge is to sustain and cooperate with God's kingdom here and now.  Echoing the triumphs of Simply Christian and The Meaning of Jesus, Wright's How God Became King is required reading for any Christians searching to understand their mission in the world today.

John MacArthur - Twelve Ordinary Men

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. // We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. But, N. T. Wright says, we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress. In contrast, postmodern thinkers have rightly argued that evil is real, powerful and important, but they give no real clue as to what we should do about it. // In fact, evil is more serious than either our culture or our theology has supposed. How then might Jesus' death be the culmination of the Old Testament solution to evil but on a wider and deeper scale than most imagine? Can we possibly envision a world in which we are delivered from evil? How might we work toward such a future through prayer and justice in the present? // These are the powerful and pressing themes that N. T. Wright addresses in this book that is at once timely and timeless.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.  Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.  Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

It’s a fact: God wants you to be a great man. If the pathway to greatness seems hidden to you, as it does for many men, it doesn’t need to be. Greatness is achieved through the disciplined pursuit of some very practical goals. Greatness is not achieved by feeling great or by believing you are great. Men who say and believe they value God and His will are really not uncommon. Many of us know what we should value and what we want to value and yet never turn these convictions into habits. The pursuit of greatness is contingent upon the ability to turn these passions into habits. The truth is the habits of your life are an infallible testimony of what you value. So let me ask, if your life were to undergo an activity audit, would there be compelling evidence that you spend your time investing in the things you claim to value? In this book you will discover the ten habits of Job’s life that led God to say, “There is no one like him on the earth.” These are described in the twenty-ninth chapter of the book of Job, where you will discover a clear and yet deeply challenging road map to greatness. If you commit to this journey, it will cost you everything. You will lose your life. But if you lose your life, you will find your life— the greatest life imaginable.
