Publisher's Description

Be faithful in your giving and God will reward you financially. It's not always stated that blatantly but the promises of the Prosperity Gospel--or the name-it-and-claim-it gospel, the health-and-wealth gospel, the word of faith movement, or positive confession theology--are false. Yet its message permeates the preaching of well-known Christian leaders: Joyce Meyer, T. D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, and many more.

The appeal of this teaching crosses racial, gender, denominational, and international boundaries. Why are otherwise faithful Christians so easily led astray? Because the Prosperity Gospel contains a grain of biblical truth, greatly distorted.
For anyone who knows that Prosperity Gospel theology is wrong but has trouble articulating and refuting the finer points, this concise edition contains all the robust arguments of the hard-hitting original edition in a shorter, more accessible form.

    This review was written for Health, Wealth & Happiness.
    David Jones and Russell Woodbridge have taken an excellent first step toward exposing the inherent danger of the so-called "prosperity gospel." Far too many professing Christians are being caught up in the promises of this false gospel. The cause is widespread biblical illiteracy, and the culprits are pastors who are willing to risk the souls of their congregations in order not to offend them. This book is ideal for placing into the hands of laypersons who are indiscriminately swallowing the slick televised presentations of prosperity preachers. The "health and wealth" message fundamentally errs in being "me-centered" and relegating God to the role of "divine gift dispenser." This kind of teaching minimizes God's glory (which He refuses to share with another) and thus removes the most fundamental reason for which Christ died and rose again, which was to show how a righteous God could remain righteous and save unrighteous sinners). This book has two parts: "Critique" and "Correction." Both are well written but brief, leaving the reader wanting more. It is fairly well annotated, but the selection of source material could be broader. Direct quotations from some of the better known contemporary prosperity personalities (such as, Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer) are appreciated, but a more thorough expose of the short comings of their teachings would have been helpful. There are practical suggestions near the end of the book for those involved in the prosperity movement and/or desiring to help others find their way out. It is an easy read, but it is recommended that the reader move slowly and perceptively through its pages.

    This review was written for Health, Wealth & Happiness.
    Dr. Jones and Dr. Woodbridge take the reader from the historical foundations of the prosperity gospel to those who continue to espouse this message today. The authors explore some of the major adherents of the prosperity gospel and expose the fallacies within their teachings and messages' enabling the reader to understand how the prosperity gospel contradicts biblical orthodoxy. The authors then provide the reader with a biblical study of both wealth and poverty. I recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to understand the message of the prosperity gospel and to those who seek a correct biblical understanding of wealth and poverty.

    The authors of Health, Wealth & Happiness are very successful in accomplishing their intention. David W. Jones and Russell S. Woodbridge give lots of insights to distinguish between the prosperity gospel and biblical gospel, as well as to understand the gospel deeply. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to ministers and to average believers for the godly life of faith in Christ.

    Jones and Woodbridge seek to show readers that the prosperity gospel is false but they don't stop there. They also show the readers what the true gospel message of Christ is. This is a great tool in understanding and sharing with others the incorrect teachings of the health and wealth gospel that is sweeping our nation. Like myself before reading this book, many people may recognize that there is something not exactly right about the teachings of the prosperity gospel but cannot pinpoint what it is. Through this book you can now understand the lies that people like Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, and Joyce Meyer teach.
