Format: Paperback
This new edition is primarily updated with a response to counter the claims made by Wayne Grudem, Professor at Trinity, Deerfield, Illinois. Common knowledge it now is that Grudem insists that a modern prophet may not be held accountable, and that his prophecy may not be submitted to the test of a true prophet, as taught in Deuteronomy 18:22. Gentry's approach, in contrast, to the texts which speak of the foundational offices of the apostles and prophets (Eph 2: 20; Eph 3: 5; Eph 4: 11) is richly supported by exegesis that is thoroughly biblical and has the consensus of church history as strong endorsement to back it up.

'It was obviously necessary that Christians, in the age of immediate inspiration, should have some means of discriminating between those who were really under the influence of the Spirit of God, and those who were either enthusiasts or deceivers.' Charles Hodge, Romans p 32

Some have unsuccessfully attempted to overthrow the divine order through agendas that seek to confuse the apostolic church with our own post-apostolic time. Tied in closely to this, Paul in two specific texts stipulates the divine order as such: "And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets..." Ephesians 4:11; "And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets..." 1 Corinthians 12:28. As an example, Grudem says: 'Women were able to prophesy in both the Old Testament and the New (see 1 Cor 11:5). They could deliver messages from God to His people. But women could not assume the role of teacher over God's people in either the Old or the NT (see 1 Tim 2:12; 3:2; Titus 1:6 on NT teachers being only men, including the elders who did most of the teaching).

i enjoy reading material from ken gentry because it comes from a worldview that is Biblical. His reformed perspective on the foundation of prophecy as an apostalic gift helps in clarification and edification.
