Overview

"The only kind of Christianity in the New Testament is Christianity with power."

If you are skeptical about-yet intrigued by-the issue of spiritual power for today, Charles Kraft provides a biblical, reasonable apologetic for a realm too often overlooked. He describes his own paradigm shift concerning the power of Jesus to heal and free others, and explains persuasively why every Christian should be confronted with this "missing dimension."

Confronting Powerless Christianity will inspire a more robust faith that is powerful enough to heal, to free people from emotional wounds and to bring about real life change.

"Kraft discusses an experience of dynamic faith that invites intimacy with Jesus and results in transformed lives. His scholarship, experience and, most of all, heart for the broken and lost show through in this book."
--Dr. Terry Wardle, professor of spiritual formation, Ashland Theological Seminary

"Chuck Kraft deals a brilliant coup de grĂ¢ce to those who have attempted to deny the full power of God in the world today."
--C. Peter Wagner, chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute

"Kraft exposes powerless Christianity for what it is. Showing us how to add the power of the Holy Spirit to Church ministry, he then enables us to become more truly trinitarian and fully biblical."
-Ken Blue, author of Healing Spiritual Abuse and Authority to Heal

"This impassioned plea to evangelical Christians to engage in power ministries such as healing, deliverance and spiritual warfare should not go unheeded. Read it and you will be both challenged and inspired."
--Stephen A. Seamands, professor of Christian doctrine, Asbury Theological Seminary
