You will find his studies will pass the Bible test though they might shock you at first. The Gospels are a history before the Church started. The Book of Acts shows the birth of the Church and early practices. The epistles are letters written to those who had obeyed Acts 2:38 to become Christians. In 2014 Bro Winter was awarded a Doctor of Divinity by Apostolic Theological Seminary New Delhi in part because of this book.

Two things are clear: He clings to the King James Version Bible and he tends to base his salvation beliefs on Acts 2:38. One would think to begin a section on the Word of God, You might want to point out the reasons why the Bible is the Word of God. Instead, Mr. Winter begins by speaking of "Rightly dividing." Upon reading that section and the following "Exegesis," I am convinced Mr. Winter sees that he is the only one who has "rightly divided" the scriptures. However there are problems with his mind set. Speaking of his key verse Acts 2:38 he states: "People accuse the real Christians of being hung up on only one verse, but if you don't obey Acts 2:38 it really won't matter what you do with the rest of the verses." So what does Acts 2:38 say. "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive gthe gift of the Holy Ghost," but Jesus said "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." So how does Mr. Winter deal with the disparity? In addition, how does Mr. Winter handle the thief on the cross:
"And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise." Luke 23:39-43
Clearly this man could not be baptised, was he saved?
There is a danger of building your theology on one verse in the Bible, it can lead to error, such as the case with Mr. Winter. I have no problem with Mr. Winter referring to himself as Pastor if indeed he is, however it is my understanding the one who ordained him also defrocked him. In addition if we are to approach scripture in the same way, then there is no such office in the church as pastor, so how could he be a pastor. He would only be able to be a Overseer/Elder or deacon and based upon some of the posts I've read from him -- he is much too pugnacious.
I gave it two stars because I didn't hate the book, but I certainly don't recommend anyone adding it to their reading list.
If it's true (as has been asserted in a comment or two here) that Bro. Winter does not display seminary credentials, I find this a point in his favor. Anyone who engages the Bible diligently and intensely over many years deserves respect, in my book, whether I ultimately agree with his or her conclusions or not. It is clear that Bro. Winter has devoted himself to studying and applying the teachings in the Bible, and that he follows the Holy Spirit's guidance wherever it leads him. None of us rises to Christ's level of perfection, and in fact we are all helpless sinners who would be lost without a certain gift of free grace. Given this, I give thanks for Bro. Winters and his willingness to challenge us all toward a deeper understanding of Biblical truth.
