I believe that Reformers should read this book. It is accurate and informative. It will help destroy some of the myths surrounding the gift of prophecy and will bring you closer to God's desire. Being Reformed (CRC), I have had many questions about the gift of prophecy (gathered over many years and many book). Almost all of them have been answered here. As J.I. Packer wrote, this book is "Careful, thorough, wise, and to my mind, convincing." I agree. You will find scripturally-based answers to what the gift is, who can have it, how it is used, and how it can benefit the Church. I highly recommend it, as well as they CRC Acts of Synod 1973 (nearly 30 years old!). This book is much newer, but covers much of the same ground. Read it and pray for God's illumination on the matter.

A fantastic tool for those interested in a balanced, scriptural approach to the New Testament gift of prophecy and its place in the church today. Tons of biblical references are cited, giving this very readable work a scholarly quality. A must read for those serious on the subject.

Wayne Grudem is a scholar, and his approach to the New Testament gift of prophecy is refreshing in that he appeals to the thinking Christian.

Grudem correlates the Old Testament prophet to the New Testament Apostle, while arguing that the New Testament gift of prophecy is not infallible, verbally inspired speech; it is simply God bringing a thought to the mind of a believer. Grudem's argument here is pretty strong, if incomplete, I think.

On the other hand, he quotes many Charismatic authors (in a positive light, mostly) who state that the flesh affects almost all prophecy. Although prophecies need not deal with predicting the future, those prophecies which do attempt to predict the future, according to the charismatic source quoted, are wrong about 80% of the time. If we (and Grudem does not do this)project the same rate of return for non-futuristic prophecy, what we end up with is perhaps 20% of all prophecies being acutally true. If 20% of verifiable prophecies are true, then we should logically project that number to non-verifiable prophecies.

Prophecy then is God (perhaps) bringing something to the mind of a believer -- about 20% of the time believers sense a prophecy. Of course, our sinful natures may corrupt even some genuine prophecies, and no prophet is infallible. His/her prophecies must each be evaluated, not necessarily by church leaders, but by individual Christians (so there is no official word as to what we should bank on, except if heresy is involved and the elders must step in). And this gift, with all this uncertainty and potential falliblity attached, is supposed to edify the church.

Format: Paperback
Having once served as a Pentecostal pastor, this book was of immeasurable value. It helped me to better see how the gift of prophecy could be manifested in the church in a way less likely to be divisive towards my non-Charismatic and non-Pentecostal brothers and sisters in Christ. Because of Grudem's background, he was able to give me a perspective on the practicing of the gifts that was outside of my own tradition.
The Holy Spirit is birthing love for one another regardless of our traditions and methods of Christian practice. This book offers a perspective on prophecy (and indirectly the other gifts) that can bring together those who practice the charismatic gifts and those who do not. We may not agree in form or practice, but we can shed anything that is not needed in the functioning of the gifts in order to promote the unity of the Church and the love of the brethren.

I have been searching since 1998 for this kind of book. There are so many book about prophetic in the market but all of them usually based on personal experience and not from textual analysis of the bible. This book is different Wayne not try to persuade the reader using supernatural experience that he or his friend have but Wayne take us to look from the text of the bible first. Through careful examination of the bible's text but using down to earth languange, he explain what is prophet, what is prophecy, is it true that the bible suggest that all this gifts still exist until today and so on. So many time those from reformed theology underestimate this gifts because they think there isn't any textual analysis that support this assumption. Well this book will give those people something to chew about. For me personally this book clarify some assumption that has been made and strengthen my faith in gifts of Holy Spirit. So I really recommend this book for all christian out there that need firm foundation on prophetic ministry, especially prophecy and prophet ministry........ God Bless......

This book is a great resource for a balanced and biblical view of this subject. If you are not a cessationist yet do not appreciate the way the prophetic gift is approached and practiced with such excess and error in many contemporary expressions of Christianity, than this book will be of great value. I have been pastoring for 22 years and a seminary graduate (GCTS). I have found that when the gift of prophecy is allowed to find expression in a Biblical way in a church body it can be a great blessing. Grudem's book demonstrates fine scholarship in a very readable style, address all areas concerning this subject and is of great help in developing a biblical approach.
