James 3:1 says "My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgement" (New King James Version). In this book, Benny Hinn goes "under the microscope", so to speak, as his words and deeds are analyzed and found wanting. That such a prominent figure should undergo such scrutiny should not be surprising, according to the above-quoted scripture, nor should it cause condemnation and outrage on the part of his "fans". Every follower of Benny Hinn, or indeed, the follower of any pop-religious icon should read this book. The evidence presented is documented and verifiable. But, more importantly, it points out sound Biblical interpretive principals, something many people are unaware of nowadays when so many interpret Scripture by what they think God tells them it means (which is usually dependent on their religious preconditioning). Especially informative to me is the chapter concerning Hinn's teaching on the Blood, and how it is similar to others who have associated almost magical powers to a literal red fluid. Appendix A, written by someone who visited Hinn's church in Orlando, is very revealing. To have a church service that is patrolled by security guards who have use Gestapo-like tactics on whoever appears not to be a Hinn-worshiper shows paranoia in the Hinn camp, not exactly an indication of great "faith".
I had to downgrade this book a little because, on some issues, it treads and retreads the same ground, which is tantamount to beating a dead horse. Of course, the fact that this book is a collection of articles contributes to that, but it could have used tighter editing.
It is somewhat disturbing to me to see reviews written on this book by people who have not even read it.

I often find myself tempted to throw 'send me your money' by suicidal tendencies in my cd player whenever Hinn, or any other televangelist of his nature is mentioned.

I applaud these two Christian ministers for digging around and finding the dirt that is Hinn.

And we wonder why Hinn is now being investigated by the IRS for tax evasion???? I've got a few theories, but let's start with Hinn preying on the minds of the innocent hopeful, making them pay insurmountable amounts of money to an outright hoax who claims to heal. If he genuinely had the power of Christ to heal then why the hell is he making such a ridiculously scandalous profit from it? Innocent people are buying into his garbage every day in the hopes that there is some healing for their diseases. Not that miracles cannot happen mind you... they're just not being performed by Hinn!

Hinn is a HOAX and he's laughing all the way to the bank knowing it. If this sentence suprises you then you need to read this book NOW!!!!

Benny Hinn fans will obviously hate this book. Reviewer Jeff DelaCruz made a few charges against Fischer and Goedelman, none of which he substantiated. And apparently, the 12/11/99 reviewer from California didn't even read the book.
On the opposite side, Fischer and Goedelman substantiate and document the quotes they supply in this book -- using Hinn's own programs, books, and tapes. Yes, Hinn did say "There's nine of them" in the Trinity. Yes, Hinn did threaten the well-being of his critics, as if "God" was his leg-breaking thug. Yes, Hinn did claim to feel the "anointing" from the tombs of two of his icons. Yes, Hinn did say that the parted Red Sea really froze, and that the Egyptians were crushed by the falling ice. Yes, Hinn did say that the NT does not record the name of either of the two disciples who were on the road to Emmaus because God dishonored them for not asking Jesus who He was. Yes, Hinn did threaten a particular critic's little children with disasterous suffering. Yes, Hinn did prophesy that the homosexual community in America would perish by fire out of heaven in 1994 or 1995, no later than that. Yes, Hinn did prophesy that a great earthquake would destroy much of the east coast during the 1990s. Yes, Hinn did prophesy that Fidel Castro would die during the 1990s. Yes, Hinn did speak for the Holy Spirit and say that Eve was originally created to give birth out of her side, but sin transformed her anatomy. Yes, Hinn did tell his followers that, "You are God. Ye are gods." Yes, Hinn did teach that Jesus gave up his divinity at some point. Yes, Hinn did say that Jesus went to hell to suffer for our atonement.

An invaluable source of witnessing to those who are "Benny" or other "Hinn"-wise deceived. Buy two copies and then the next time someone asks you, "What do you think of Benny Hinn,?" merely hand them this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great place to start when introducing others to the various errors, lies, and abuses perpetrated by Benny Hinn. While the information here is somewhat dated, Benny goes on with the same cycle of teaching error, being confronted, retracting the error, and then starting the whole thing over again. And in keeping with the law of diminishing returns, his claims have been getting more outlandish. Remember when he said that Jesus was going to start appearing visibly in his meetings? He had better pray that that doesn't happen, because if Jesus showed up, it would be in judgment, and things would get ugly fast.
One observation of the reviews on this site: the ones by supporters of Benny Hinndrance seem to be plagued by atrocious grammar, misspellings and sentence fragments. It seems that those supporting Benny are not very educated, and I am sure that is the way he likes it. The emperor can be buck naked if no one notices...
