'Apostolic'-Related Teachings or Expositories
There are quite a number of issues that can be thought of as related to apostolic. The following are links to teachings or expositories that are either directly about the apostolic, or concerning apostolic issues as best as we can discern according to Jesus's instructions to the apostles in the Gospels, and secondarily to what we observe of the New Testament apostles in their writings in their epistles. NOTE: None of these links will direct you to those who advertise their 'apostleship'!

Lost In Translation - The Ministry Of The Apostle  by Teri Lee Earl

OUTSIDE LINKS (in date order):

Apostolic Foundations: The Challenge of Living an Authentic Christian Life by Art Katz

What Is An Apostle? by Michael Clark

Will The Real Apostles Please Stand Up?  by Stephen W. Morris
The opening states: "This is a relatively short comment of some of the characteristics observed by reading the salutation by Paul to the Romans in the book of the same name with some insights from his writings to the Corinthians and to the church at Ephesus. It’s not necessarily complete or definitive. Just an observation of some of the more obvious traits of Paul the apostle."


New Wave?Apostles and Prophets by Teri Lee Earl
(a discussion and collection started in 1999 of prophecies and warnings which led to brief exposures and discussion of the teachings and proclaimations of the popularized "third wave" group or New Apostolic Reformation. Updates added.)

Authority, Accountability, and the Apostolic Movement
by Stephen Crosby

Book description: There is a new apostolic movement afoot, and it is leading many from the simplicity of the pure gospel. To be legitimate, the teaching emphasis and ministry expression of present-day apostles and prophets must reflect a correct gospel foundation:

Instead, the new apostolic reformation movement, with its emphasis on apostolic authority, “spiritual covering,” loyalty, honor, submission, and government, has become the vehicle to build the philosophies and kingdoms of men.

Dr. Stephen Crosby’s third book, Authority, Accountability, and the Apostolic Movement, probes these and other authority/submission issues from a biblically disciplined, Christ-centered, New Covenant perspective. Within these pages, every believer, church leader, apostle, or prophet who may have wandered from the simplicity of the gospel can find the road to recovery.

This is the only printed book on this subject that we recommend. It is useful for all groups.

We should remember that apostleship, even more than the other 'equipper' ministries, but can be expected to be "last of all"  in the parade before the world, sacrificing for the sake of others who may give no deserved honor (1 Corinth. 4:9-13).  For some historical information about 'the rest of the story' of the original apostles of the New Testament, see COUNTING THE COST by George Kirkpatrick. The account of their deaths and sufferings might also be found in the classic Foxe's Book of Martyrs. See also, see

The Matthew 18 Process
by Teri Lee Earl
(a teaching on disfellowshipping, especially designed for use for those who have been unscripturally rejected, or those who have seen failure on the part of a fellowship/organization to deal with those with unrepentent sin)

The Balance of Truth and Love by Teri Lee Earl
In the book of Revelation, Jesus reproved or rebuked the churches for lack of either one.
