His writings combined pragmatism with spiritual insight, which is evident in his books, which include The Indigenous Church (first published by Gospel Publishing House then reprinted by Moody Press), The Indigenous Church and the Missionary, A Guide to Church Planting, Growth in Your Christian Ministry, Spiritual Gifts, When the Spirit Came, and A Theology of the Church and Its Mission: A Pentecostal Perspective.
