By Seeking Disciple VINE VOICE on August 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
I have attended Brownsville Assembly of God on two different occasions. Both times I walked away with a hunger for God. I did not shake. I did not fall down. I simply walked away with a hunger for God's presence in my home church. I walked away longing for people to be sovereignly saved. I walked away challanged to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15-16).
I bought this book before I went to Brownsville. I knew that Hanegraaff was having some problems with the so called "revival movements." I too was having those problems.
What did I learn? This book will call you to study the Word of God. Revival must be based on the clear teachings of Scripture. I fully stand with Hanegraaff on this issue. Nevertheless, I did not like the "spirit" which seems to be in this book (as opposed to Christianity In Crisis). While I felt that there was (and still is) a great need for men like Hank to call the Body of Christ back to the Bible but we must do this in a spirit of humility (2 Timothy 2:24-25).
I would encourage you to read this book but continue to pray for revival. Don't be discouraged. Seek Jesus with all your heart and fall in love with Him and His awesome truth.

The Bible says that "in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils," and that people will "not endure sound doctrine, but shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."
This is exactly what Hanegraaf is exposing in "Counterfeit Revival." What I love about his books is that he uses the frauds own words to expose their heresy. He quotes from the leadership of the modern "charasmatic" movement and shows that it indeed is "counterfeit."
The book discusses such alleged manifestations of the Holy Spirit such as tongues, being slain by the spirit, spasmodic jerking/twitching, barking like dogs, and other absurdities.
It opened my eyes to some of the trash that is being promoted out there as Christianity. Oftentimes Bible-believing Christians avoid that stuff so well, that they have no idea how widespread, and how widely-accepted, the error really is.
I think every Christian should read this book, and then search the Scriptures so he himself knows WHY Hanegraaf is right. If true Christians would only study and know the Word as God intends, much of the garbage that goes on would never spread.

Format: Paperback
Counterfeit Revival is a well-researched, accessible book that exposes the foundations of today's charismatic movement, traces religious "enthusiasm" through history (at least back as far as the Quakers, although other works take the lineage further back to groups like the Cathars and the Montanists), and notes how the modern charismatic movement deviates from historic Christianity. Critics may label the tone of the book "negative," but I spent a year traveling around Pentecostal churches (including those in the Assemblies of God, the largest, most "mainstream" Pentecostal/Charismatic denomination), and I can vouch for the impeccable accuracy of this book.
The author, who is himself a moderate Charismatic, believes the excesses of the modern charismatic movement threaten the fabric of Christianity. I agree. If the Charismatic movement becomes identical with "evangelicalism," then in the 25 years, evangelicalism will not exist.

This book is a real page turner. It reads like a juicy expose' story that shows how certain small, infamous religious organizations are teaching and preaching a phoney doctrine of getting the Holy Spirit via thrilling sensations and unprovable "miracles" or hypnotic suggestion. This book cannot cover every phoney ministry in the country, but it gets the point across by going very in-depth with a few of the worst cases, both recently and since the inception of the New World, America.
I learned a lot about what SEEMS to be very impressive events occurring at fake worship sessions, and how it is mostly, or entirely, a show biz type trick, with techniques that have been in use for at least over 200 years. I was also surprised that I got a good overview and fresh exposure to many classic Christian writers and thinkers, such as Jonathan Edwards.
To me, the main proof that "Counterfeit Revival"'s described events are NOT the work of the Holy Spirit is that there is no evidence of these "newly converted" becoming Christians with hearts for Christian Service and doing good works. Instead, this book shows that the counterfeit converts seem to only become junkies for more and more thrills and chills at endless counterfeit worship services. It becomes a self-serving religiousity. Real Christians get the Holy Spirit and go out and do good works. These counterfeit Christians keep going back for more fun and entertainment for themselves.
