Overview

For the past half-century, C. Peter Wagner has been at the leading edge of key spiritual paradigm shifts guided by the Holy Spirit. In the 1960s, the missionary movement in South America was at its peak-and Dr. Wagner was there. In the 1970s, he was a recognized authority in the church-growth movement. In the 1980s, he taught a popular course at Fuller Seminary with Vineyard leader John Wimber that advocated healing prayer, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance and spiritual warfare; Dr. Wagner coined the phrase "Third Wave" to describe this fresh move of the Spirit, which is ongoing even today. In the 1990s, he became a leader of the New Apostolic Reformation, and in the new millennium he has championed the Dominion Mandate, adopting the Seven Mountain (or 7M) template for reclaiming our culture for God's kingdom.

For more than five decades, Dr. Wagner has led the Church from one great move of God to the next, riding the wave of the Spirit through changes he never imagined possible when he first answered God's call to ministry. In Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets and Theologians, Dr. Wagner invites you to experience these spiritual paradigm shifts as they happened, just as he did, and shares how these surprising moves of the Spirit impacted his own ongoing transformation. You'll witness the seismic changes in the Church's recent history through the eyes of one leader who has seen it all unfold!
