Where do I start?
What books, magazines, and videos should I have in my library?
So many people ask us this each day. You are not alone!
We've included several things here for you, so read all of this page before you do anything else!

First things first! There are 2 sites that I want you to go to:
1. Restoration Foundation is THE BEST MAGAZINE out there! You need to subscribe..NOW! They have all their past issues of
Restore! Magazine online and I've built a link to the site so you can read those magazines, AND Dr. John Garr's 2 books are also posted online for you to read. Bookmark it as a favorite site. Go there as soon as possible! This is THE cutting edge magazine of Jewish roots teaching!

2. Print off these 2 articles from Bridges for Peace. They are REQUIRED READING so you will understand why studying these things are necessary, and what happened to the church to bring it so far from when it started with the first century church of Acts. These two articles are your first step in understanding these things. Make your copies and distribute at church, bible studies, or wherever needed. This article is in 2 parts and is 16 pages printed out.
"The History of Christian Anti-Semitism" (Sign up for their freebies, too!)

This list is provided as a starting point for your studies. It is not an "end all" list. Many of these books may be found at your public library. Use the encyclopedias, reference materials, magazines, Bible dictionaries, Catholic Encyclopedia, Religious Encyclopedias, Jewish Encyclopedias, and history books. Many of these things are now online, too. I've linked to them on one of our pages. The church does not teach history so you must dig into your library for help. We no-longer have a catalog. We have a few books available for sale and those will be indicated where the book is listed. The links on this page are for We are an Associate of Amazon and receive a sellers fee if you buy your books using the links provided. Please email us if you have any questions at

17. History buffs: The Zion Chronicles and The Zion Covenant Series by Bodie Thoene are a must for every serious student. These series take you from 1938-1948 in the eyes of the Jew. These are historical fiction that will teach you not only the history of the Holocaust and the establishment of Israel as a nation, but also show you Nazism, Islam and the beginning of the Messianic movement. Your public library should have the sets, but I will warn you, once you begin book one, you won't be able to put them down! I have read through them about three times in five years.
