Christianity in Crisis – 21st Century by Hank Hanegraaff explores the teachings of the faith movement and demonstrates the ways in which its teachings fall outside of Biblical Christianity. It is a thoroughly researched and meticulously documented book that, in addition to exposing the errors of the faith movement, offers Biblical arguments against those teachings. First published twenty years ago, the newly updated version adds additional examples of the departure from Biblical Christianity by newer faith teachers such as Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer.
I was minimally acquainted with the teachings of the faith movement before reading this book. I personally did not agree with its theology, but I was unaware of the extent this movement has strayed from Biblical Christianity. I was horrified to read many of the teachings of this movement including that men are little gods and that God has no power on this earth unless men allow Him to act. I was pleased that the book does not end without offering hope for those who have been deceived or those who have been deceptive. The gospel of Christ and the essentials of the Christian faith are clearly presented. I highly recommend this book.
