Format: Paperback
I really loved reading this book. It's full of historical accounts, documenting amazing supernational events surrounding real people, living real lives. I grew up in the church and was familiar with many names, but had no real understanding of who these people were or the context of thier lives. I was surprised at how quickly I read from cover to cover, bearly putting it down. I loved it and have given it as gifts since. Thanks to the author for a great work!!

I write this review with a heavy heart. Know that I'm trying to be careful here - and that my review isn't because I have a different theology or point of view from the author. Coming from the streams John Crowder I do understand his thinking. Unfortunately this book is not only wrong but almost intentionally misleading. Let me just state a few points and try to avoid contentious theological bickering.

John starts out by building his case on two non-canonical books: the Book of Enoch and the Epistle of Barnabas. In fact most of the theological statements throughout are built on such shaky if not heretical foundations. Many (most perhaps) of the people John quotes and builds his assertions on have either fallen or are of a dubious nature, e.g. Todd Bentley, John Dowie, Thomas Mertin. Building theological beliefs on anecdotal stories, especially mystical ones, is dangerous. Cherry picking scriptures instead of serious expository and solid hermeneutics is what leads people into error - and cults.

John defends one of the first heretical movements - Montanism, as the forerunner of the Pentecostal movement. While lavishing praise on this "persecuted movement" John fails to mention that its founder, Montanus, claimed to be the incarnation of the Holy Spirit as well as other horrible abuses. Montanus believed the Old Testament should be eliminated, laid the foundation for antisemitism, took guidance from angels (shades of Todd Bentley), and elevated his own writings to canonical status.

On page 145 John claims the Muslim world has not been evangelized because of Christian racism. He says that the failure of the world to be evangelized is because of our apathy - in blatant contradiction to the word that says the world did and will always reject the light.

I just spent the last 3 nights in GLORY HARVEST meetings with John Crowder and his wife, Lili. What awesome and sweet spirited couple who travel with their 4 young children.

Crazy man? No. Sold out radical? YES!!! Beware, though. If you have a religious spirit you will more than likely be offended by this book. He knows his church history, though, and most of the incidents he has documented will astonish you!

I can't wait for he and Lily to come back to Branson, MO again!
I highly recommend this book! You won't be able to put it down!

If you enjoy reading about the lives of "the heroes of faith" then I wouldn't recommend trusting his biographies in the book. He is not negative towards them at all, but he just hasnt done his research.

If you do any amount of research on people like William Branham, John G Lake, Smith Wigglesworth and the like, you will notice the mistakes in the stories Crowder tells about them, and what they believed. Not huge giant things, mind you, but big enough things that will keep you from certain spiritual things available to you, that even Crowder hasnt discovered yet. (You want your mind blown, get the big "collected teachings of John G Lake" book)

Unfortunately, this happens alot today, where preachers or teachers will hear a second hand story about these people, and usually in an example to teach a spiritual issue, which is fine, but the stories get a little twisted, and then repeated, and no one wants to stand up and say anything about it because they dont want to seem "divisive."

Clearly, (and probably not on purpose) he tells of these wonderful powerful spiritual people through the eyes of his own doctrine, which makes for a bad history book. You will come off of this book having the wrong impression of many of the heroes of faith and what they believed. Again, he is not negative towards them at all, he is just confused about what they believed, and about certain factual events that took place.

If the errors were accidental, or out of ignorance, then thats better, but the book still isnt trustworthy. Crowder brings up these people and tries to connect the ways he things they agree with his spiritual views. Unfortunately, many of them would publicly disagree with him if they were alive today.

I was recently introduced to John Crowder, his ministry and his writing. I love all three. What I found here was a rich church history of men and women who cultivated an extraordinary relationship with God and the good news - we can do the same. Thank you John for reminding us of what has been our all along.

John Crowder is the ultimate in gospel, on the cutting edge and even better than apostle Paul himself... since he is alive and is able to talk in modern english. He wrote this book and all his books are good, but get his book 'Mystical Union' first to get the basic nuts and bolts, and then get this one after if you want.
