Below are a few Protarian-related books for more information or study. They are currently available through Amazon and through the Protarian founder's online store.
A New Understanding of the Christian Faith and Way of Life
There is a group of people who believe what Jesus and his disciples understood to be true is very different than the modern church’s interpretation of the Christian faith. These people are also concerned about rising persecution, violence, and political instability—particularly for Christians with a strict interpretation of the Bible. Because of that, they’re working together to ensure a stable future for their families. Like the Amish or Mennonites, they have a distinctive Christian faith and way of life.
This group of people calls themselves Protarians. They are a new organization, arranged by tribes and formed in response to increasing threats from those who reject the God of the Bible and the natural order of Creation as it was intended. With nearly every institution in the world—churches, universities, governments, and corporations—drifting leftward towards a more tolerant and “inclusive” mindset, Protarians are moving in the opposite direction. In fact, they are racing towards something far beyond what might be defined as conservative.
For those who’ve left their church as it caved in to the demands of the world, for those who’ve lost their jobs for their beliefs, for those who feel they’ve lost a sense of people and place—Protarians may offer some much needed relief. As many nations are overrun with multiculturalism and diversity, the Protarians’ focus on tribe and belonging addresses a wound many have felt but couldn’t quite describe. Their brutal honesty on politically sensitive topics like race or gender feels overdue, a conversation that should have started long ago.
The Sacred Desire for People and Place
Hiraeth is a Welsh word for which there is no English equivalent. Hiraeth is a feeling of homesickness for a home to which you cannot return. A grief for something that was not only lost, but for something you can’t even remember what it was. Many Christians feel an acute sense of hiraeth because they have no tribe. They have no people. No place. No sense of belonging.
The Tribal Instinct explains what exactly tribes are and why they have disappeared. More importantly, it explores the Biblical case for tribe and what Christians might do to recover what has been lost. With unabashed pessimism, The Tribal Instinct addresses difficult subjects like the role of race, gender, and language in the formation of tribes—a long overdue conversation too many are afraid to discuss.
While the world is seemingly moving away from tribes, many are not. They are seeking ways to reconnect with their people and form communities that have far more meaning and purpose than neighborhood HOAs or anonymous internet forums. For those struggling to understand who their people are, and who their place is, The Tribal Instinct will offer a welcome breath of fresh air into your search.
Christianity, Before it was Ruined by Christians
As Christianity, the world’s most popular religion, approaches its 2,000-year anniversary, more have begun to question mainstream dogma than ever before. Whether political corruption, scientific fraud, medical tyranny, or many other topics, humans are waking up to the fact that much of what they were promised to be true was instead deception—lies meant to cloud the truth and give power to those who deceived them.
This realization has caused many to question whether global warming is a man-made phenomenon. It has caused millions of parents to reconsider vaccines—once considered a sacrosanct rite of passage for any newborn child. What if the Christianity we were taught was similarly misrepresented?
What if the Bible message is more beautiful than you can imagine?
Within a few hundred years after the resurrection of Jesus, distortions began to creep into Christianity from the pagan belief systems which surrounded it. Over the course of hundreds of years, man-made doctrines have accumulated and warped the Christian faith so drastically many of its early believers would scarcely recognize it. The world’s most popular religion is a far cry from the message Jesus preached through villages and towns during his ministry. For those unafraid to look, Red Pill Gospel peels back the layers of lies man has added to the gospel and reveals the beautiful hope it portrays.
You shall have no other gods before me. Does the first commandment serve any purpose for Christians today? Initially meant to guide Israelites away from the polytheism they had grown accustomed to during their Egyptian captivity, the first commandment, often cited as the most important, might appear no longer necessary. For most Christians, the temptation to worship Ba’al or Moloch in times of trouble is completely gone. For such believers, the prohibition against other gods feels like the relic of a different time.
What if the first commandment was meant to serve against a much bigger danger to Christianity than just the gods of Egypt and Rome? What if it was considered paramount because of a very specific threat that still torments the Christian faith today?
Sorrow of the Godmakers proposes that superstition—specifically human conjecture about the nature of God—has always presented the greater peril. What God put simply, humans would complicate. What the Bible stated clearly, philosophers and theologians would confuse. The one God of the Old Testament was refashioned into a three-personed deity even the world’s greatest pastors cannot explain. Godmakers tells the incredible story of how the first commandment, meant to curb and such conjecture, has suffered unlike any other, essentially put to death by the philosophers and theologians who claim to be its greatest defenders.
How the quest for equality is destroying America and the Christian Church
Today, many of the treasured institutions that made America such a great place to live are being destroyed. Riots fill the streets as cities burn. Churches sit empty. Families and marriage are no longer held in high esteem. Social trust has disappeared. Public education is in shambles. Law and order are no longer respected and nothing appears safe from disruption.
Are social justice, critical race theory, and equality the key to understanding our world's ills? Or could the pursuit of them be causing more problems? Could our insistence on equality in all things actually be the root of most—if not all—of our societal, religious and political disagreements? Unequaled proposes a fascinating take on why this one topic may be crucial to understanding most of our country's—and Church's—divisions.
