ABOUT THE BOOK: "To be effective, the preacher's message must be alive; it must alarm, arouse, and challenge. It must be God's present voice to a particular people." --AW Tozer / Throughout the generations, false prophets and insincere teachers have always pretended to have the best interests of God's people in mind. They claim they are human instruments who have received direct words of the Lord through the Holy Spirit. But in the final analysis, they do not represent God, and they harm the sheep often to the point of costing them their souls. Who are these false shepherds and how can we distinguish a true shepherd from wolves in shepherds' clothing? That is the question Pastor Tavares Robinson explores in Shepherds, Hirelings, and Dictators: How to Recognize the Difference. In this eye-opening book he covers: Is it biblical to judge, The "American" gospel versus the gospel of Christ, The scheme of Scripture-twisting, The "first fruit offering" scam, The truth about the prosperity gospel, and more. ---- ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Pastor Robinson shows readers how to open their eyes and come out of false teaching into God's marvelous light where there is true healing, encouragement, and restoration.Tavares Robinson is the founder and senior pastor of Sound the Trumpet Ministries of Miami in Miami, Florida, and serves as publisher of The Trumpet Magazine. The Lord has graced him to speak with a bold prophetic voice which turns the hearts of people back to God. He and his wife Cardra live in South Florida with their two daughters.
