Millions desperate for hope and solutions are enticed by the promise of the prosperity gospel - that God will do whatever they need with just a little faith and a financial gift. All the while, prosperity preachers exploit the poor and the needy to stockpile their riches. What can followers of the true gospel do to combat the deception?
Through a remarkable and fascinating journey, Costi Hinn went from a next-generation prosperity preacher to the first to abandon the family faith and share the true gospel. Nephew of the world-famous televangelist, Benny Hinn, Costi had a front-row seat to the inner workings and theology of the prosperity gospel. But as Costi's faith deepened, so did his questions about prosperity teaching. As the deceptions in his past were exposed, Costi came face to face with the hypocrisy and devastation caused by his belief system, and the overwhelming truth about the real Jesus Christ.
This captivating look into the daily lives of one of the world's leading prosperity dynasties offers a thoughtful perspective on the perils of greed, the power of the true gospel, and hope for the future of the global church. Through real-life stories, Costi challenges and equips readers to be living lights pointing the way to the true gospel and the saving grace of Christ. God, Greed, and the (Prosperity) Gospel will bolster your faith and encourage your own journey toward the Truth.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A very captivating and inspiring read - full of genuine love, grace, and truth. I loved and appreciated that Costi did not just shine a light on the scandalous problems within the prosperity gospel and leave us there with no solution. He lovingly and discerningly gives a balanced view of what Biblical prosperity is in comparison and offers wise counsel, by giving a framework for reaching those who are caught up in these dangerous beliefs. Costi’s heart for the lost is one of the most humble I have seen and I am so thankful to God for His great work of redemption in Costi’s life and the lives of those who turn in faith to Christ, the ONLY ONE who can Save. This is a wonderful resource to add to your collection and one that you will want to share with friends, family, and church members. Thank you, Costi - for unapologetically exposing what is against God's Word and sharing Truth. You are loved, appreciated, and prayed for.
