Master List Of Cult, New Age, Pro-Homosexual And Other Non-Christian Books Being Sold In Christian Bookstores
compiled by Bud Press, June 23, 2004

 June 23, 2004

To the Reader: The following is a Master List of Heretical, Cultic, New Age Movement and Pro-Gay/Homosexual authors/books found advertised and promoted within numerous, major online Christian bookstores. While special care has been taken to provide current and accurate information, the reader is encouraged to check and verify the names prior to their removal.

While the "Pro-Gay/Homosexual" list contains authors who are homosexual, it does not mean that all of the authors are homosexual.

Certainly, this list is not confined to just online Christian bookstores. It may be applied to walk-in Christian bookstores as well.

For your convenience, the list is arranged in alphabetical order and in a single line. Information about the authors and books may be located by conducting a Google Search on the author's names, the "Description" section of your online bookstore or the websites provided in the list.

This Master List will be updated on a continual basis, and will be of great use to customers, employees, managers, owners and distributors of both walk-in and on-line Christian bookstores. Therefore, please use this list as the Lord leads.

Please note:

Special Note: While many of the authors have been removed from major online Christian bookstores, this Master List will remain intact for future reference.

This Master List is available online here and in Excel Spreadsheet/File (upon request).

Your comments and questions are welcomed. Until then, may the Lord bless you in your efforts to defend the faith, protect the flock and expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Jude 3; Acts 20:27-32; Ephesians 5:11).
