Chosen Books Confronting Powerless Christianity: Evangelicals and the Missing Dimension

Charles Kraft grew up as a noncharismatic evangelical. For most of his life he was skeptical of groups that claimed to work in spiritual power. But as readers learn in his new book, Kraft changed his mind dramatically. In this book, the Fuller Seminary professor asserts that all Christians, not just charismatics, should be experiencing the power dimension of Christianity. Although Christ commissioned a gospel of love and power, evangelicals have, in Kraft's words, been good at the love part but often forgotten the power part. Yet spiritual power is half the gospel. For evangelicals who are skeptical, yet intrigued, by the issue of spiritual power for today, Kraft provides a biblical, reasonable apologetic. He also answers questions charismatics may have about God's power. This balanced book advocates biblical Christianity that is powerful enough to heal, to free people from emotional wounds, and to bring about real life change.
