The charismatic resurgence is experiencing explosive growth in the Church today, not only in America but throughout the world. And as with most explosions disastrous consequences result: negative consequences for the integrity of the Christian witness in the world.
This work analyzes charismatic claims to continuing prophetic revelation in the Church by considering key charismatic texts in Scripture. It carefully analyzes charismatic arguments over against the Scriptures themselves, demonstrating that the gift of prophecy was revelational and ceased with the closing of the canon.
Gentry especially focuses on the work of respected Reformed theologian Wayne Grudem’s book The Gift of Prophecy in the New Testament and Today. Grudem is a thought-provoking, careful scholar whose writings have been influential in promoting charismatic renewal.
