What does the New Testament teach about the spiritual gift of prophecy? What is it? How does it function? Can evangelical Christians use it in their churches today?
This updated, comprehensive work answers such questions and points the way to a renewed understanding of the gift of prophecy--an understanding that suggests how the body of Christ may enjoy one of the Holy Spirit's most edifying gifts without compromising the supremacy of Scripture.
"This conservative evangelical scholarly work gives a solid theological basis for further development of a practical theology of spiritual gifts." --John Wimber, Vineyard Christian Fellowship
"Careful, thorough, wise, and to my mind, convincing." --J.I. Packer
"...a fresh, biblically sound, readable contribution...its depth of scholarship, pastoral solidity, and cautions against abuses are special strengths. Highly recommended." --Vern S. Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary
"If Grudem's convincing thesis could be heard, a new path of dialog could perhaps be opened up in the Christian community. The research, clarity, and typical Grudem candor continue to make this the finest book on the subject to date." --L. Russ Bush, Professor of Philosophy of Religion, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"...thorough, biblical, and practical. It deserves the attention of all who are concerned about the spiritual development of the church today." --Stanley Horton, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Bible and Theology, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary
RedeemedByGrace5 Stars Out Of 5July 7, 2010RedeemedByGraceThis is a highly biblical presentation of the gift of prophecy. It should be in every Christian's library especially churches which have been skewed and influenced by the prophetic movement. This book and a serious investigation of the biblical texts would bring balance to the extremes that are current in vogue. The only thing that could be added is an engagement with the truth claims of the prophecy movement perhaps as an appendix.
Jake3 Stars Out Of 5November 16, 2006JakeThe book says a prophet can be off at times. Clearly unbiblical. This is becoming a common false doctrine. So much that it's scary.
Steve5 Stars Out Of 5March 30, 2002SteveThis is the fairest attempt at staying faithfull to the biblical text that I know of. It's very thorough and includes a section that gives practical suggestions on how to incorporate this gift into various church settings. Even John MacArthur, who believesthis gift has ceased, feels this is the best presentation that this gift is still in operation. This work will also, hopefully, bring some balance to some extreme views held by manyof our brothers and sisters. May God grant us all grace to know and serve him better.
