Publisher's Description

A compelling insider account by the nephew of a renowned prosperity preacher on the perils of greed and the power of the true gospel.

Costi Hinn—nephew of the world-famous televangelist, Benny Hinn—had a front-row seat to the inner workings of the prosperity gospel: "In one sermon I heard growing up, my uncle taught us that if we wanted God to do something for us, we needed to do something for him."

In God, Greed, and the (Prosperity) Gospel he gives a chilling account of how prosperity preachers exploit the poor and needy and what it was like to grow up in one of the world's most powerful prosperity dynasties. As Costi began to question the lifestyle he was living and look for an answer to the injustice he saw, he found himself on a journey that eventually led him to abandon the family faith in favor of the overwhelming truth about the real Jesus Christ.

This is Costi's story of escape from a false teaching that has ensnared millions. And it’s a call to the church to be salt and light throughout the earth and to stand up for the truth when Jesus Christ is being falsely represented as a commodity.

If you want to learn how to reach those caught in deception, or if you've been confused in the past by the insidiously blurred lines between prosperity theology and the true gospel, this book will bolster your faith and encourage your own journey toward the Truth.

Spanish edition also available.

Editorial Reviews

Hinn (Defining Deception), the nephew of Israeli Christian televangelist Benny Hinn, rails in this convincing, vociferous work against the 'health and wealth' theology of prosperity gospel preachers as anti-Christian, exploitative, and abusive. Part memoir, part critique of prosperity gospel theology, Hinn's candid work delves into his childhood and young adulthood within the family's ministry. He then explores his first inklings of doubt at Dallas Baptist University and his subsequent rejection of his role as 'the next great anointed healer' when he is forced to choose between his family and his fiancand eacute;e, who feels she must hide her asthma because Hinn's family made her feel as if 'sickness is not allowed in [his] home.' Hinn rebuilds his spiritual life and ministry within a more mainstream, conservative evangelical faith and, in the book's final chapters, offers a theological critique of prosperity gospel practices, suggestions for a moderated understanding of God's role in human well-being, and thoughts on how to reach out to family and friends who believe the prosperity gospel message. Hinn's testimony will be most meaningful to Christians who have grown up in but are skeptical of the prosperity tradition. -- Publishers Weekly
