Crossway Books & Bibles The Gift of Prophecy

In this updated edition of his standard reference, respected scholar Dr. Wayne Grudem defines prophecy as neither predicting the future nor proclaiming a word from the Lord, but as reporting something that God spontaneously brings to mind. A balanced, scriptural approach based on careful and comprehensive exegesis of 1 Corinthians and Ephesians 2, this study suggests how the body of Christ may enjoy one of the Holy Spirit's most edifying gifts without compromising the supremacy of Scripture.

This 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.

The book says a prophet can be off at times. Clearly unbiblical. This is becoming a common false doctrine. So much that it's scary.

This 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.
