From the Publisher
In the words of Chuck Smith, Charisma is a beautiful, natural anointing of God's Spirit upon a persons life, enabling him or her to do the work of God. Charismania is a fleshly endeavor to imitate charisma. It is any human effort to do the work of the Spirit in the energy or ability of the flesh. These displays of charismania take on many forms and always draw attention to the person rather than to Jesus Christ.
