Overview

Every Christian should read this book in order to be aware of the dangerous implications of the widespread and cultic Word of Faith movement preaching what is popularly known as "Name It and Claim It" theology. A Different Gospel is a bold and revealing examination of the biblical and historical basis of this movement. This new and revised edition is complete with a foreword by Hank Hanegraaff, author of Christianity in Crisis, and a new afterword by D. R. McConnell.

The author knows the movement first hand and has a heart for those snared by it. He is also an academically trained observer who has based this work on careful historical and biblical analysis. McConnell warns of the movement's cultic nature in its doctrine of healing and its understanding of the atonement and demonstrates how far the movement's doctrine of prosperity is from Scripture's true teaching.

    Great resource for study in the Faith Movement

    I have been in the depths of a study on the name it and claim faith movement of late and found this book to provide excellent topic study with extremely well documented footnotes. Easy to read.

    a must read for any christian

    McConnell does a wonderful job of relating the current word faith doctrine to its cultic roots. The book reminds the reader to remain on guard and be unafraid to 'test the spirit by the spirit'. If you are currently a member of the Word of Faith movement or are subjected to its teachings but do not feel comfortable buy the book. If you are involved and do feel comfortable buy the book and partake in a real 'revelation'!
