Besides the issue with the gift in tongues, I really enjoyed the book. I myself have come out of the Charismatic and Pentecostal movements and have had first hand experience of the things that are mentioned in this book. Some of his commentary on the movement could be a lot more nuanced since the beliefs in this movement vary differently. Some Pentecostals are Modalist while other are Trinitarian, so the dogmatics can vary greatly, and some from both of these groups might sill consider the others "saved." A lot of his views about the moment are spot on and are great insights, but it would be better if he had had firsthand experience in these movements. He also compares and contrasts the new forms of worship with the ancient forms of worship and the sacramental life that is in the Orthodox Church. Fr. Seraphim Rose's book "Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future also has much insight as well. Much of what Fr. Seraphim Rose has written has already come to pass in that by the time I became Orthodox there were large amounts of Charismatic groups that were basically New Age in theology and practice, overflowing with self appointed apostles and "prophets."
The book covers a brief history of these movements but could really go into more detail and also show more about the moral shortcoming of the leaders in these movements vs their contemporary Orthodox counterparts. Noticing the differences in humility and discernment were a huge influence for my beginning involvement into studying Orthodoxy. The book really seems to target Orthodox readers, but could be interesting for those in the Charismatic and Pentecostal circles who question the spirituality and foundations of their movement. I would not recommend it for those who are convinced that the modern Charismatic/Pentecostal Protestantism is the truth. The book is of moderate size, but a book on this topic could easily be 600 pages.
