New! The Fugitive: Menno Simons
Herald Press, c2008

It's 1544. Menno Simons, a leader in the new- and persecuted- free church movement, is on the run from authorities in the Netherlands. With a price on his head, he stops to catch his breath on a darkened farm. He prays, "Lord, what do I do now?" Myron Augsburger' historical novel recalls Menno's life- from Catholic priest to radical reformer to hunted fugitive.

The Resurrection Life
Evangel Publishing House, c 2005

Myron Augsburger has written into the postmodern world the same argument and the same truth claims that the Apostle Paul wrote into the Greco-Roman world in his reflecting gospel. The audacious claim of the Christian gospel is validated by the actual physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and that resurrection power is transformation to all who truly believe that it is so. The Resurrection Life is not only powerfully written and illustrated, but also demonstrates half a century of the author's faithful global ministry.

 

Soli Deo gloria : a Daily Walk through Romans
Herald Press, c2004.

At the center of every movement toward church renewal has been the rediscovery of Romans. In this spirit, Myron S. Augsburger began writing a devotional page for each day of the year, using a verse from Romans as his inspiration. In reading Romans as the story of the gospel of God, Augsburger discovers again the beauty and commitment of Romans. These meditations provide a daily inspiration to enrich your devotional time.

The robe of God : reconciliation, the believers' church essential
Herald Press c2000

In this book Myron S. Augsburger, known for his academic career and far-flung preaching missions, gives an account of the message he proclaims. God moves first with grace and coes to us in Christ to reconcile us to himself. He transforms us and accepts us into the covenant relationship. God clothes us, like the prodigal son, in "the robe of righteousness" and give us a place in his family.

 

How to be a Christ shaped family
Victor Books, c1994

Myron and Esther Augsburger have been shaping stone and students, children and colleges and churches for all of thier adult life. As they look back on more than forty years of marriage and parenting, their Christian service, and Esther's work as a professional sculptor, they see remarkable similarities between the sculpting of a work of art and the shaping of a family. Just as a work of art is a statement, so a family is a statement of worth, of relationships, and of meaning.

The Radicals [videorecording]
Vision Video, c 1990

The year is 1525. Michael and Margaretha Sattler have fled their religious orders. Their quest: restore the church to the purity of its early days when communities of believers practiced peace, compassion and sacrificial love.

The Sattlers join a group called the Anabaptists and together challenge the 1000 year control of the Church by the State. They call for baptism to once again become, not a mark of citizenship, but an adult and voluntary decision to follow Christ. As their movement grows, so does the determination of their enemies to stop them...by any means necessary. This film is based on the book Pilgrim Aflame

 

The Christ-shaped conscience
Victor Books, c1990

 

When reason fails
Tyndale House Publishers, 1985, c1968

Evangelism as Discipling
Herald Press, c1983

The words evangelism and evangelist spark different images among both Christians and non-Christians. Some see the pushy salesman out to snare a convert. Others visualize a friend who truly cares about them.

The author, a biblical scholar, evangelist, teacher and church planter, pulls into focus the biblical concept of evangelism. The Bible presents a round-out view of faith sharing.

 

The Anabaptist tradition
Eastern Mennonite Board of Missions & Charities, c1982

Practicing the presence of the Spirit
Herald Press, c1982

The highest priority in Christian experience is the exaltation of Jesus Christ and his kingdom. The Spirit has come to glorify Christ in us who believe, in both worship and walk. This book attempts to hold praise and practice together, matching experience with ethics, joy with justice, and renewal with righteousness.

Matthew
Word Books, 1982

For those in the firing line- in pulpits, classes, Bible-study groups and fellowships, here is a distinctly different kind of commentary. The Preachers Commentary Series combines rich resources of historical setting and textual interpretation with spiritual insights and contemporary illustrations specifically designed for communicators. The result is a resource by preachers/teacher for preachers/teachers.

 

Moeru junrei : Michael Sattler den
Heibonsha, c 1979

Faithful unto death : fifteen young people who were not afraid to die for their faith
Word Books, c 1978

Presents portraits drawn from court testimony, letters, and other historical records of 16th-century Anabaptist youths, primarily from Holland, Belgium, and Germany, who were persecuted for their religious beliefs.

Pilgrim aflame
Herald Press, c 1977

Walking in the Resurrection
Herald Press, c 1976

Walking in the Resurrection shows how genuine evangelical faith issues in a social consciousness and responsibility. Holiness of life is not a pious exercise apart from practical responsibility. Rather it is a wholeness of life in relation to Christ, to oneself, and to others.
