Customer Reviews for Purifying the Prophetic: Breaking Free from the Spirit of Self-Fulfillment
Review 1 for Purifying the Prophetic: Breaking Free from the Spirit of Self-Fulfillment
Date:April 21, 2008
Pastor K. Vincek
This is a powerful challenge to the church to return to a passion for Christ as our first love, which cannot help but result in ministry for others which is filled with the love, compassion, and power of God - and denial of self. Truthful and insightful, this book will step in some toes. It's meant to. But Pastor Sandford does an excellent job of defining the prophetic ministry for those who may have questioned prophecy or been hurt by prophetic people without discarding that which is good. I'd recommend it for the serious, mature believer interested in seeking to please God in ministry, prophetic or otherwise.

Review 2 for Purifying the Prophetic: Breaking Free from the Spirit of Self-Fulfillment
Date:November 20, 2005
Here are some great endorsements of this book and I agree!"In Purifying the Prophetic, Loren challenges us to uproot and overthrow some of our culturally acceptable New Testament traditions and errors. He pleads passionately for the Church to experience God's love to such a degree that the kingdom of self is displaced with a culture of honor, purity and love. The results? A fatherless generation will be drawn home to the Father's house."--Jack Frost, author, Experiencing Father's Embrace; cofounder, Shiloh Place Ministries"This is the first time I have read a book that is speaking correctives into the prophetic movement, as well as into other areas of popular Christian culture. It has the benefit of being written by a highly prophetically gifted leader. The book is forthright in its message and may offend some people. If it is read in the light of the spirit intended, however, it will bring desperately needed correctives into today's Church and into the wonderfully God-wrought ministering gift of prophecy. --Fred Wright, international coordinator, Partners in Harvest"This timely book will enable you to keep the scriptural mandate to 'despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good' (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21). This is a much-needed work."--John Arnott, senior pastor, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship"Loren Sandford's book Purifying the Prophetic is an in-your face, gut-checking, heart-wrenching, reality-based review of current prophetic paradigms that need serious adjusting. It would serve the reader to be warned beforehand: reading this book could cause your blood pressure to rise. --John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries
