Post Charismatic

October 22, 2008

This is a book written particularly, though not exclusively, for people who have been hurt through extremes within Pentecostal / Charismatic churches.  McAlpine’s thesis is that the answer to abuse is not disuse, however attractive that may seem, but proper use.  After a chapter on the history of Pentecostalism, the Charismatic movement and the Third Wave, he looks at some of the extremes which have left people wounded e.g. the Latter Rain movement, Word of Faith teaching and the “Shepherding movement”.  He talks, among other things, about hype, prophetic pronouncements that have not borne fruit and elitism and how these have led many to become disillusioned.  In his chapter, Five-Fold reconsidered, he makes the telling point that the five-fold ministries are just that, ministries and not positions of leadership within the church.  I not only like what McAlpine has to say; I like the spirit in which he says it.  Highly recommended.
