By JIM OSMAN and Dave rich

God Doesn’t Try

Foreword by Costi W. Hinn

In God Doesn’t Try, Jim Osman and Dave Rich offer a thought-provoking study of the sovereignty of God applied to soteriology, ecclesiology, and eschatology. This book challenges Christians to think of God according to His self-revelation as the all-powerful, all-knowing God Who accomplishes His will without attempting or experimenting.

God Doesn’t Whisper

In God Doesn’t Whisper, Pastor Jim Osman examines the assumptions, practices, and proof texts of those who promote a theology of hearing the voice of God. Dig into the texts often cited in defense of trying to hear God speak outside of His written Word. Scripture is clear: God doesn’t whisper.


Truth or Territory

What is it and how do we wage it? Many “experts” on spiritual warfare teach a methodology for battling demons, taking territory, and canceling curses that sounds like something you would expect to find in a Harry Potter novel. Practices such as binding and rebuking Satan, canceling generational curses, and spiritual mapping are popular in many Christian circles and taught in many non-charismatic conservative churches. But are they biblical?

Selling the Stairway to Heaven

Heaven visitations are all the rage today. A retelling of the sights, sounds, and smells of a supposed trip to Heaven can land an author at the top of the bestseller list and produce enough speaking engagements, morning television appearances, news segments, and interviews on Christian TV and radio to keep him at the top of the bestseller list for quite some time.

The Prosperity of the Wicked

Why do the wicked prosper? That question has been asked by the redeemed in every age. It seems the more wicked people are, the more they prosper. The righteous suffer affliction while the enemies of God bask in the wealth this world offers. Why is this so? What is God doing through this? Psalm 73 answers these questions in a clear and convicting way. 

“Jim Osman is one of the premium preachers and thinkers in Christianity. Though few know his name, that is because instead of trying to build a big platform, he is focusing on shepherding the only church he has ever been a member of. He is not afraid to address controversial issues, and he handles those issues in a most biblical way. His understanding of Scripture and its proper use along with his pastor’s heart provides the balance needed.”
