5.0 out of 5 stars Ummmm, methinks not every reviewer has actually read it, December 20, 2000
This review is from: Counterfeit Miracles (Paperback)
My "one star" compadres haven't given the book its due in any fashion. It is well and good to say (with fingers in ears, repeating like a mantra) "Miracles happen every day...I've seen them...everybody's seen them...God never changes...etc etc." But when one gets down to brass tacs, the complete dearth of evidence for - as an example - miracles of regeneration or resurrection is embarassingly obvious. Does anyone think that if Benny Hinn had more to offer than mind-cures, suggestion, and cures of psychosomatic illnesses that he would not FLOOD the airways with footage to prove it? TBN would be ALL MIRACLES, ALL DAY. I was raised in a charismatic home and fully believe that God gives special providences and that our prayers ARE answered. But the special apostolic gifts are, whether you gauge it by quality or quantity, not with us anymore. I understand the worldview of the charismatic; but charismatics need to learn that whether or not the last regenerative miracle was in 70 AD or yesterday actually has no bearing on the truth of Christianity. Warfields excellent exegesis not only answers questions of charismata that endure to this day, but also reminds us that there is nothing new under the sun. Read this 80 year old tome, change the names, and you have a scathing indictment of the modern practitioners of faith healing. Bravo to a scintillating intellect. A final note: If we are truly to be living from one miracle to the next in our Christian life...isn't the term completely diluted of its meaning?

"he considered himself a Christian Evolutionist? Enough said!"

You don't have to be a logician to know that this is an informal fallacy called "Ad hominem," and is no basis for proof.

"That Doctor is unqualified to teach about medicine because he believes the earth is flat. Experience just one dose of Ecstacy in your own life and you'll believe everything I'm saying about how great it is!"

May I submit that a book, entirely devoted to interacting cessasionism in general and with B.B. Warfield in particular, is available today. It is called "On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Post-biblical Miracles--Revised & Expanded Edition by Jon Mark Ruthven" For the sake of balance, and all those who are looking to read both sides, do purchase and read both works.

Warfield did NOT believe in Darwin's theory of evolution, as his writings attest.
