Every Christian needs to read this book.
Betty J. Beacham
A great book on the dangers of the word of faith movement that is causing many to fall away from the faith, & sending many to Hell!
Geoff Crosson
The fact that most of these started in the United States with our freedom of religion is interesting.

I want to commend Mr. Gibson for a solid effort at writing a through overview of the so-called "New Apostles and Prophets' movement. The material he is attempting to analyize and evaluate Biblically is broad and includes a large amount of data. The main perpetrators of this have a massive amount of written and audio material to cover. In addition the significant contemporary data that has to be mastered, the roots of this abberent theology go back at the very minimun to the late 1940's (though variations on its core ideas have turned up time and time again. For example the new propheccy movement of the late second century called Montanism. The resorationist ideology has produced some of the most harmful errors of the past twenty centuries. The point is that Mr.Gibson has done a good job of grasping and setting forth his research in a manner which is very helpful.

At the center of his critique is the consistently unreliable prophecies uttered by alleged super end times prophets of this movement. He demonstrates convincingly a recurring patterrn of false prophecies that simply are ignored by the movment. Again and again the individuals of this movment (IHOP, Morningstar, Bethel church in Redding, Cal to name a few) have promised that world shaking out pourings of the Holy Spirit are right around the corner. For more than 30 years these claims have been made numerous times, with bold prophetic declaration. If you include the same kinds of bold predictions made by teachers from the Latter Rain roots of this movment its now closer to 60 years of failed propheices and predictions of revival. Mr. Gibson has also done a good job of demonstrating with the words of the main teachers of this movement how sloppy are the hermenutics utlized to arrive at the core doctrine of the movement.

This book is a must read for anyone trying to make sense of the modern 'super-apostles' & prophets from a biblical standpoint. The author uses their own words to expose their flaky and often outright heretical teachings in light of the truth of God's word. He does it in a way that doesn't favor the views of those who believe the gifts have ceased versus Charismatics/Pentecostals. As a Charismatic myself I found this to be a huge help.

For several years I've wished there was one book I could hand to someone involved in or curious about the modern apostolic/prophetic/five-fold/etc movement. There are other good books on Word Faith heresy, but this movement (International House of Prayer, Morningstar Ministries, Bethel Church in Redding, CA, etc) brings with it unique challenges to orthodox Christian faith and requires a unique response to it. Finally, I have that book. Gibson does an excellent job of summing up the major problems with the movement and does so by interacting with extensive quotes from many of its most prominent leaders (Rick Joyner, Mike Bickle, Paul Cain, etc).

When asked by someone from within this movement what, exactly, are my objections, I often find it hard to know where to begin. Gibson's book will be an excellent place to start a constructive conversation. Thanks, Keith.

Pastor Keith Gibson's extensive study on this subject is "right on the nose" in accuracy! Pastor Keith gives clear evidence for which he writes. I was part of the Dominion theology/Latter Rain movement from 1993-1997 and I witnessed first hand, how these subtle and spiritually dangerous skewed doctrines and practices can be. When you think of these groups, the one word that should sound the alarm in your head, is "MIXTURE". It is partially right, but enough to be oh, so VERY wrong! Please check out Pastor Keith's other resources and website:

Get this book! You will be so very enlightened!

It's sad to find out, and in my case 95% of the bible preachers I listen to are actually off the rails deceivers scamming people for money! I still don't want to believe it, you actually go through the grief process of some one dying, anger, grief, trying to compromise and lastly grim acceptance with the knowledge that the christian world is being systematically deceived by them.

If you are looking for a thorough, well written and objective book on the NAR, although I don't recall if the author uses this term to describe these false teachers or not, you've found it. If you are a person caught up in this web of false and unbiblical teaching, this is a must read. The heresy of the NAR is seeping into all areas of the evangelical church and their teaching needs to be exposed for the fraud that it is and shown the door. Keith Gibson names who these false prophets are so there is no need to speculate or guess about who these people are. I highly recommend this book.

Every Christian needs to read this book. There are so many false prophets writing books and on the air. People need to know how to distinguish between those that speak truth and those who speak their own agenda.
