...Highly recommended for its thorough treatment of every aspect of theology...

Not by Bread Alone is not only sound but extremely well organized as a must-read text on evangelical theology.
24 pages, soft cover. The greatest doctrinal dispute of our age involves the precise definition of the Gospel. It is not uncommon to hear muddled and contradictory evangelistic messages. This booklet provides a scholarly basis for a grace viewpoint. It addresses every evangelistic appeal. It analyzes the Hebrew and Greek words for faith, repentance and confession. Addresses such questions as: Does saving repentance mean one must clean up his life before he can be saved? Must one confess Jesus publicly? What if one has never “asked Jesus into my heart?” Does the Bible teach, “If He’s not Lord of all He’s not Lord at all?” Can salvation be complete without baptism?Read download
There is much helpful material in this book. It points out the tremendous confusion that exists today in evangelism and personal assurance of salvation. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved" is a much needed message today.
The author has done some carful study to reaffirm the Biblical position that one obtains a right standing with God simply through personal trust in Christ alone to save.
Steven Waterhouse has done a masterful job of reducing the act of salvation to its Biblical least common denominator.
100 pages, hard cover. Can a believer lose his salvation? Blessed Assurance addresses the difficult passages concerning a believer’s security such as, “fallen from grace,” “severed from Christ,” “endure to the end,” make your calling and election sure,” using direct references from the Scriptures and arguing from both negative and positive points of reference. Helpful in explaining eternal security even to those who may be uncertain or disagree.Read download
Booklet, 53 pages, soft cover. This study maintains that anyone who does not bring a sacrifice to church or celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles by living in huts made of palm branches is in practice, a dispensationalist, and that there is little excuse for failing to grasp the change from Law to grace. It also maintains that it is amazing that anyone could read the Bible and not believe that it promises a future earthly kingdom centered in the nation of Israel. Contains a multitude of supporting verses. An elementary, easily understood apology for this theology.Read download
53 pages, soft cover. Did the office of apostles end with the deaths of the original apostles? Or are there apostles today? What were (are) the qualifications to be (or have been) an apostle? Is the purpose of speaking in tongues today to enable individual praise to God? Or is this ecstatic speech, gibberish or babbling? Is it valid to maintain the view that the Greek word for tongues, “glossa” means actual languages, spoken in New Testament times for the sole purpose of furthering the gospel? Do the “sign gifts” (healing, miracles, tongues etc.) exist today, or did they pass with the original apostles? In this booklet, Dr. Waterhouse answers these questions directly from Scripture so that confusion can be avoided and one can discover his or her spiritual gift.Read download

(Author Dr. Roger A. Hubbard): 243 pages, hard cover. This book offers not only a detailed study of Paul’s systematic presentation of the doctrine of justification by faith but also provides a foundational analysis of the Gospel: that man is a sinner, he cannot save himself; through faith alone in Christ, Christ’s righteousness is imputed to him; he is adopted into God’s family, and as such he is then predestined to be an “heir together” with Him on That Day.Read download

Hundreds of the original Greek words/phrases coupled with the English translations serve to expand the reader’s understanding.

Chapters include: historical reliability of the Gospels; Jesus and Gospel History from AD 30 to AD60; the Life of Jesus’ in the Epistles; and others. Includes 360 endnotes. Answers questions such as, “can we identify the authors of the Gospels and dates of the books, or were they later forgeries? Are the people and places in the Gospels historical or mythological? Did Jesus do the miracles and makes the claims attributable to Him, or did early Christians exaggerate His life?”Read download
Jesus and History is a necessary addition to the library of anyone seriously interested in Christian apologetics. Dr. Waterhouse gives a straight-forward, intellectually honest presentation and assessment of the historical evidence for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The work has certainly been a blessing to my own faith and study.
Steve Waterhouse's Jesus and History is a highly readable exposition that defends the reliability of the New Testament on the basis of both internal evidence and extra biblical texts and archaeology and makes a persuasive case for its claims about Jesus Christ.
Dr. Waterhouse has done a huge favor by giving a synopsis of the major issues. Dr. Waterhouse presents the data clearly and provides a summary at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book. I highly recommend this book for pastors and laypeople.
Jesus and History provides a handbook for studious lay readers to follow the evidence about Christ's life that corroborates the Bible's account. One of the more helpful sections outlives the key places associated with Jesus, and then walks the reader through their archaeological attestation and history.
30 pages, booklet, soft cover. This booklet addresses the questions, Did Jesus really do the miracles and make the claims attributed to him, or did the early Christians exaggerate His life? Is there any merit to the challenges to the fact of His resurrection, and did He defeat death on the first Easter morning? Herein is evidence that Jesus did in fact perform miracles and that His resurrection is historical.Read download
24 pages, soft cover – The Old Testament contains numerous predictions about a coming Deliverer, the Messiah. The Dead Sea Scrolls were copied long before the life of Jesus, and they clearly have these prophecies. No critic can assert these were written after the fact of the life of Jesus. This study establishes that these texts were correctly understood and translated from the Hebrew by those who see Jesus as the fulfillment. Messianic prophecy is probably the strongest evidence that the Bible is a book of supernatural origin and that Jesus of Nazareth must be identified as the messiah, the Savior of all who place their faith in Him and His death on the cross for our sin.Read download
Papias lived in the next following generation from the Apostles. His surviving comments are essential to background conclusions about the Gospels. Should Papias be understood and trusted that the Apostle Matthew’s writing ministry was the basis for the canonical Gospel of Matthew? Who was Papias’ “Elder John” and what was his connection to the Gospel of John and the Book of Revelation? Was the author the Apostle John or some secondary obscure John? This book gives attention to these difficult but vital questions. As they overlap with the reliability of the Gospels, a third study on fulfilled Messianic Prophecy is included.Read download
Using tools of scholarship and critical thinking, these essays revisit questions that are important for the church in every generation. Steven Waterhouse scrutinizes scholarly orthodoxies and shows that ancient views discarded in modern times may be right after all. Waterhouse helps readers think for themselves by highlighting the primary sources and blowing the whistle on unwarranted contemporary skepticism. He also weighs in knowledgeably on issues concerning which legitimate debate continues. Pastors, seminary students, and others who are intellectually serous about the Bible will profit from these wise, thorough and informed investigations.
This succinct volume introduces Papias and his testimony to the Matthean authorship of the first Gospel. In a wonderfully cogent fashion the reader not only encounters Papias but also the evidence of Matthew’s hand. Other studies follow that are equally prescient. Thank God for Steven Waterhouse and his insights.
Dr. Waterhouse is one of the great pastor-scholars, finding time in the busy life of a pastor to do the extensive research necessary to produce such brilliant and compelling defenses of Scripture. His Papias and Matthew, Papias and his “Elder John” is well-reasoned and thorough, using Papias to convince readers of the apostolic authorship and early dates of the Gospel of Matthew and all the works of John.

38 Pages, booklet, soft cover. Contains two separate studies covering both New and Old Testament views on the sanctity of life. First, abortion is examined from Biblical, Philosophical, Medical and Legal views. Secondly, many Old Testament Bible texts give God’s view of the unborn. Some think the New Testament does not address abortion directly. However, abortion was common in New Testament times and the early church condemned it repeatedly. It also seems true that New Testament verses which refer to sorcerers (Greek pharmakoi) included the strongest possible condemnation of the sinful use of drugs including those causing abortion.Read download
