I Was a Flakey Preacher is often mistaken for a biography, but the contents beyond chapter one, reveal that it is a very readable book about the many doctrines which are associated with the Charismatic mindset. The book also exposes many of the key Bible verses which are constantly used to substantiate the wild manifestations often seen in Charismatic meetings.
One of the main ideas, which is put forth in this book, is that the truth found within the teachings and earthly ministry of Christ, are one of the most challenging concepts that Ted Brooks had to face up to and deal with in his journey out of error.
The other concept, which shook his Charismatic belief system to the core, was the fact that the Bible contained tremendous amounts of information regarding false teachings, false prophets, and false christs. This reoccurring theme comes through loud and clear throughout his book. He obviously was challenged strongly by his own personal Bible study of the word, false, early on in his quest for truth.
Based on feedback from many readers, this book is portrayed as a very readable work and according to those who have written to the author, contains material that is both revealing and thought provoking. -- Publisher Comments
