I am very pleased to announce the release of a book that has been stewing in my mental pot for fifteen years:

Your Empowered Inheritance . . . NOW! 

It is available in softcover (204 pages), Kindle, E-pub and .pdf formats from the Online Mall tab at You can search Stephanos Ministries or the book title.

This is a scholarly/academic critique of a doctrine called “Cessationism” that dominates the media and popular Christian culture of Evangelicalism in the West. It is the belief system that teaches certain gifts of the Spirit and the ministries of apostles and prophets “ceased” by divine design at the end of the first century (and other variations of that theme). 

In this book, I try to show that the essence of every vital, core, doctrine of the faith is undermined by Cessationism, and that it defrauds and disenfranchises believers from what is rightly theirs through the finished work of Jesus Christ, and the out-poured and indwelling Spirit.

This is written at a graduate/post-graduate level and it is hoped that it could be a valuable resource to serious students of scripture, leaders, and influencers who may be dealing with people or systems that eviscerates the gospel of Christ, and minimizes the scriptures own testimony of itself.
