In addition to a daily Bible study, we recommend specific books which go along with the subject matter covered in the course. These books are listed below in the order in which you should read them. While the book reading is optional, it is highly recommended, and is included in the estimate for how much time is required to complete the School of Transformation.
“Preparing the Way” by Cal Pierce
Rev. Cal Pierce is the director of Healing Rooms Ministries. God powerfully touched him during a service in 1996, and in November 1997, He led Cal and his wife Michelle to move to Spokane, Washington, and to seek His direction for ministry. As they prayed, fasted, and interceded, The Holy Spirit began to move, Intercessors and healing teams were raised up and trained, and on July 22, 1999, the healing rooms, which were first opened by the great preacher and evangelist John G. Lake, were reopened. Since that day, thousands have been touched and healed by God through this ministry. The vision and ministry continue to spread as teams continue to go out from the Healing Rooms to give seminars and to provide training and assistance to new healing rooms springing up across the country and around the world.

“Experiencing the Father's Embrace” by Jack Frost

Jack Frost, ministry leader and teacher, reveals the love that God has for each of His children. His love is not doled out by age, race, gender, politics, or denomination- His embrace is for all.

“Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind” by Bill Johnson
You can live a supernatural life. In fact, moving in the spiritual realm should be as routine as prayer, worship and reading Scripture. It is part of what Jesus purchased for us on the Cross!
Healing, deliverance and signs-and-wonders are an inheritance for all followers of Jesus Christ. The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind teaches you how to remove the blinders of religious limitation to see your own life changed, the lost redeemed and communities transformed.

“Culture of Honor” by Danny Silk
In this powerful, revelation-packed book, Danny Silk describes the significant paradigm shift in church life, government, and relationships that has created and sustained the revival culture at Bethel Church in Redding, California
Through many relevant and true-life stories, the church is revealed as a place of freedom, respect, empowerment, and healthy discipline (not punishment). Culture of Honor challenges the status quo of church leadership structure and presents a refreshing view of the five-fold ministry.
Jesus acknowledged this important principle in Matthew 20:25-26: “But Jesus called them to Himself an said, ‘You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.’”
If those with power learn how to empower those around them, then surely it will come to pass that, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”
You can apply-today-the truths revealed in this practical yet supernaturally charged set of principles to relationships in your family, workplace, community, ministry, church-wherever you deal with others.
“Healing In The Kingdom” by Cal Pierce
We live in an era that has made more technological and scientific advances than any other period in history. It seems that these breakthroughs would enhance humankind's quality of life, but the sad reality is that in this age of hallmark discoveries, our health-care-system is dangerously overloaded with the emergence of dew diseases, as well as the reemergence of old ones. A word that will bring healing to the whole of humanity by our whole God is needed from heaven to the Church.
Healing in the Kingdom lays a foundation from God's Word that shows you how to receive healing by faith, how to address the roadblocks to healing and how to move in authority through the Holy Spirit to see healing and divine health manifested in this present age, In order to move in God's power to see the sick healed, we must first know that we have the power to heal the sick-and that certainly can only be found in the Word of God!

“Seven Mountain Mantle” by Johnny Enlow

He has a mandate to challenge and equip the church to influence all areas of society with the supernatural love and power of God. Johnny's passion is two-fold: presence and purpose-that the church would learn to prioritize God's presence in our midst over pleasing man and that out of the overflow of knowing Him, we would find our purpose as a generation in manifesting His kingdom on Earth as it is in heaven.
“Seven Mountain Prophecy” by Johnny Enlow
The coming Elijah Revolution will affect the entire world and will prepare the way of the Lord before His return. According to Scripture, Jesus will sit at God's right hand until all of His enemies are put under His feet. The Elijah Revolution will accomplish this as God's end-time emissaries confront seven nations “greater and mightier than we” - the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorities, Canannites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusities. These nations correspond to seven “mountains” of global society-Media, Government, Education, Economy, Religion, Celebration/Arts, and Family.
With Divine power and favor, revolutionaries will take these mountains for Christ! If you want to do your part, come now and be trained and equipped.

“Sozo Training Manual” by Marie McMichael
The word SOZO is the Greek word for saved, healed and delivered. It is used 110 times in the New Testament. It contains the concept of salvation, healing, and deliverance in one action word. Jesus wants more for us than just salvation. He also wants us healed and delivered.
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save (sozo) what was lost.”
Salvation: Romans 10-9 “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved (sozo).”
Healing: Matthew 9:22 “But Jesus turning and seeing her said, Daughter, take courage your faith has made you well (sozo), and at once the woman was well (sozo).”
Deliverance: Luke 8:36 “And those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon possessed had been made well (sozo).”
This seminar focuses on methods useful in setting people free. The aim of our time together is to love on people, and to provide you with tools so you too can see strongholds broken through healing, wounds, revealing truth and closing “doors” to the enemy. It is our desire that you connect in a closer way to the Godhead and you continue to walk out and fulfill your destiny.
This prayer model began with the revival in Argentina and is based upon the understanding that through sin or trauma the enemy can obtain access to torment us. The four doors of access are hatred, fear, occult and sexual sin. We offer this ministry as an option to our prayer team members to assist them in serving others more effectively. Our team members are constantly on the front line of the battle and we want to make sure that the enemy has no open doors of access to hinder them in any way.
