False Holiness Standards by Linda Hopper- A book is available which deals with various issues related to outward holiness standards. Linda Hopper was a former UPC member and her husband was a licensed UPC minister. From her website: "This book is a thorough and exhaustive research project that was inspired from Linda's desire to know the complete truth about what the Bible really says regarding Christian adornment, especially in connection with women's dress." Besides from Amazon, her book may be obtained by sending $15.00 to: Victory Tabernacle c/o Linda Hopper, 8406 North Classics Avenue., Fresno, CA 93720. Linda covers topics such as pants on women, jewelry, make-up, and women's hair. Her church web site may be found here. You may email her at LHTEACHMINISTRY@aol.com.
Neo Phariseeism: An Inside Look At Hairsplitting Theologies by David Wasmundt- This book was written by a long time ordained minister in the UPC, though no longer holding credentials with them. David Wasmundt discusses unnecessary yokes such as salvation by works and man made holiness standards. He includes a section on discussing specific standards placed on women. These are not in-depth studies and would not have changed my views at the time I was involved in this organization. That is not to say that the book isn't helpful.
Pendulum Extremes: Keeping Your Balance While Walking in the Narrow Way by David Wasmundt- The follow-up to Neo Phariseeism. Covered are pendulum extremes in the broadway and in the church, with a focus on keeping a proper balance. I felt he covered some unnecessary topics. Both of these books may be obtained through David Wasmundt at email@example.com or call 678-612-7655.
False Holiness Exposed by Bob Hellmann- From a review on Amazon: "For anyone that has struggled with becoming holy for God, this is a must read. In this book you learn what real "Holiness" is. Not only will you find freedom from religion, but freedom from self. Only God Himself can make us holy through His Holy Spirit. Not works, outer attire, religion or anything else can make us holy. Too many people are bound by religious beliefs, which are only man's interpretations of the Bible. Too many people are miserable and bound up by these beliefs. This book will truly set you free to enjoy the real relationship of holiness God intended us to have, that we can only receive from Him, and enjoy with Him."
The Tithe That Binds by Rory O. Moore- Rory was a licensed UPC minister. I felt the book was good in places, but also felt some things were faulty. I think it would have been better if he had omitted some things in the book, such as his beliefs about churches, and simply stuck to the matter of tithing.
