Publisher's Summary

What do Heaven's Gate, Waco, and Jonestown have in common with a church near you? As incredible as it may seem, the very principles used by cult leaders are today employed in literally thousands of churches worldwide. Tactics once relegated to the ashrams of cults are now replicated at the altars of churches. In Counterfeit Revival, by Hank Hanegraaff, leaders of this great apostasy from Pensacola, Florida to Toronto, Canada speak for themselves - so that you can judge for yourself. Hanegraaff is the host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man.

Synopsis is a Bit Misleading

First off- let me state that this book contains no information whatsoever about Heaven's Gate, Waco, Jonestown or anything of the sort. It is an extensive discussion of the current pentecostal and evangelical movements in the Christian church. While the things discussed here are radical, they are by no means fringe cult activities that lead to the deaths of church members.

Second- this book is designed for Christians only. I don't mean that in an elitist sense at all, but rather, if you are not currently a Christian, then you probably already think everything discussed is loony and you don't need further evidences of that.

Third- while the author is making some excellent and quite salient points, they are repeatedly overshadowed by his insistence upon using acronyms and alliteration. That might work for young people who need to memorize plant phyla, it's not needed for intelligent adults who are trying to make critical decisions about their faith. It becomes a bit tedious.

It might sound like I hated this book, which I did not. I thought it was quite useful and agreed with the majority of the author's points. It simply wasn't what I thought it was going to be. Christians who are curious about the fruits of the spirit absolutely SHOULD give this a listen and evaluate the material for themselves. But if you're looking for a discussion about modern day cults, this isn't it.

A must read for the weary Christian

This is an excellent book for Christians who want to know what kind of false teachings are out there. It is truly amazing how Christians are being lead astray by the likes of people like Benny Hin becaue they do not know the Bible. Hank "The Bible Answer Man" exposes many of these false teachers for who they are. Now you can hear what they say personally and don't have to take anyone's word. It is absolutely crazy what they say and what we believe. This is a must read if you want to keep your walk with Chist fresh and you want to be able to tell the difference between false teachers and real leaders of Christ.
