Comment: This book has some tanning due to age. There is a small stain on the top edge. Spine is lightly sunned. With that said, it looks like the books has never been read but instead has been sitting on a dusty shelf somewhere since 1988.

Editorial Reviews

Many truths of Scripture are being distorted by a philosophy that places experience and emotions above the inerrant Word of God. That philosophy is called mysticism. Unfortunately, says Arthur L. Johnson, the misunderstandings spawned by mysticism have gained respectability within the evangelical community. Because mystics rely on subjective, private, spiritual experiences for guidance and wisdom, they diminish the authority of Scripture. Visions and spiritual encounters become more important than the truths found in God's Word. Though mysticism sounds like a cult, far removed from Christianity, it has had a profound effect on many Christians who have never heard of it. Dr. Johnson reveals how several fallacies prevalent in churches today have originated from mysticism. He will help you understand what mysticism is and how it started. And he will show you why it cannot be mixed with God's Word. Most important, Faith Misguided will help you identify the possible influence of mysticism in your church and in your life. And it will convince you of the importance and the sufficiency of God's Word.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Luanne Cutchins on July 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
If you are interested in knowing the dangers and errors of mysticism, this is the book for you. Johnson clears up the fog on this subject and brings you to the light of God's truth. Johnson is a brilliant theologian and can connect the dots most people don't even see. A must read for every Christian, pastor and teacher. This teaching could save your life if you are into mystical prayers, because many people who claim to be hearing God personally through impressions or an inner voice are not hearing God but their own selves or a spirit other than the Holy Spirit. There is a lot of teaching on this subject and Johnson exposes the false teaching with scripture.

I am reading it for the second time. It is a small but powerful book and it is easy to read for the average Christian. It is out of print but you can still find a few.
