I was going through my bookshelf, organizing and putting some books into a chest. I realized that I have about 100 Pentecostal Publishing House or otherwise related books. How many do you have?

(I thought I had a lot of Amish books but realize I only have 24.)

I used to have lots of books but after so many moves and letting people borrow them I am down to just a few now.

I would have to go in the other room to make much of a list but some of my current favorites are....

Houses That Change The World by Wolfgang Simson
Square Foot Gardening
Month By Month Gardening In Louisiana
My newest and the one I am currently reading is Brother Blume's newest book Take A Bite Out Of Eternal Life
Where Do We Go From Here? by Ralph W Neighbor
Pagan Christianity by Frank Viola
Rethinking The Wineskin by Frank Viola

That's a start...

Sounds like you like gardening. ;) I have a ton of other books too. Most of them are on religions/spirituality or relationships. I do have some other topics like gardening and cleaning and such.

I have hundreds of books, most I have read, collected over the last 36 years. I am currently reading two books by Philip Yancey_ "PRAYER" Does it make a difference? and "The Jesus I Never Knew". What are you reading currently? Two other books I am reading but at a slower pace is, "Repositioning Yourself" by T.D. Jakes, and then "God In Three What" by our own Chan.

I read about everything the PPH had to offer in my first 15 years of adult life, I have since then I have diversified a great deal.

I have the Prophecy Digest books from the 1980's.

They used to make for scary reading, but they are humorous books today!

I used to have a bunch of books, but gave them away whe I realized they were mostly hogwash anyhow.

Now I am very selective. The last book I bought was "Adorning the Doctrine" by JR Ensey, and also the New Cyclopedic Theological Dictionary that Bro Ensey compiled.

Other than that...cookbooks. Never seen a cookbook steer ya wrong, unless it was one of them fad diet ones written by some short effeminate feller.....Grillen books are my favorite....


I also like Loius Lamour and Zane Grey ...shhhh

PPH Books? Let's see, I seem to have tons of them!

Otherwise, I have a rather large library. Favorites are anything by Arthur Pink, Tozer, Stephen Charnock and any Colonial period theologians. My two newest are manuscripts I have just completed! One is "If The Kings Could Speak", the other is an untitled commentary on the Book of Nehemiah.

I'm not into fiction nearly as much as I was as a young man, though I do love L'Amour.

Just counted 112 in my reference section. That is all that will fit there. Some may be scattered elsewhere.

I would say I have well over a thousand books.

I have loaned many out that have lost their way home. :(

Houses That Change The World by Wolfgang Simson (re-reading this one)
Prescription for Herbal Healing
Country Wisdom & Knowhow
5 acres and Independence
The Self-Reliant homestead
The Glorious Church by Huston & McKinley

I have 30 or so PPH-purchased books, several more from other Apostolic sources, several more that also forgot who owns them, even though I put my name in all my books too....

I use to have more, but I have donated books to the "church library" that I had either already read or didn't care for, and thought someone else might like them.

I have lots of Bible Study helps, decorating, gardening, cookbooks, set of World Book Encyclopedias (love them!), political books, the whole Louis L'Amour collection (lol), etc. Too many to name.

Do have quite a few PPH books.

I have an extensive library with about 3000 books. Most are Reformed and Puritan with a large amount of biographies and politcal books.

The only PPH books I have were written by my father.

I have a small library (about 200 books) but I also have the internet (just have to discern a little more than with the printed material). I heard an ol'-timer say one time 'when studying for your bible lessons (http://www.gospellight.com) be sure and read the Bible. It'll shed some light on all those commentaries!'

I have hundreds of books, don't really know how many.
Lots of them are from PPH or WAP.
I also have books from PPH on CD.

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of "Jehovah-Jesus" by the late C.H. Yadon? It used to be distributed by the PPH. I had a copy many years ago but have no idea when or where it went. I've checked Amazon books and ebay every so often, also some site for hard to find books but no success.

I have four bookshelves, two boxes, and a few more books sitting around. (I could fill 5 bookcases easily.) About one bookcase is PPH. Two shelves are commentaries and Bibles. Almost one book case is other Christian non-fiction/self help, one shelf is a set of real encyclopedias, the boxes and a couple shelves are classics, and the rest are other fiction books.

No. Sorry, I have all those tucked away on a bookshelf or in a chest. I have a feeling in about 20 years they will be very interesting to the UPC members. :) History has been revised since the merger, I suspect it will be even more interesting later on.

I believe that I have nearly 1500 books at least. It has been a while since I last counted, and there have been some removed and others added.

I have all kinds of books on my shelves and in boxes, although I am getting rid of some. (God has been dealing with me about them for some time.)

Books in the library include, but are not limited to:

Hardy Boys (as many as I can get my very itchy fingers on)

Nancy Drew (I was interested in seening the difference between the two series)

Star Wars (More than 50 books, possibly the single largest collection of books in my library)

Star Trek (Fairly repitious after a while)

Al Lacy (I want to get every book in his different series, but I am many books short)

Louis La'Mour (I know that I misspelled the name)

David Bernard

Nona Freeman

J. R. Ensey

Larry Booker

Verbal Bean

I. H. Terry

And many many more.
