<em>Do God’s prophets and apostles walk the earth today?</em>
Many popular teachers say yes, including Bill Johnson from Bethel Church (Redding, California), Mike Bickle from the International House of Prayer (Kansas City, Missouri), and Rick Joyner from Morningstar Ministries (Fort Mill, South Carolina).
But when examined in the light of Scripture, their teachings about prophets and apostles fall short.
Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably encountered the fast-growing religious movement involving these and other teachers—the New Apostolic Reformation. The New Apostolic Reformation is led by men and women who claim to be modern-day prophets and apostles. They seek to bring God’s kingdom to earth through their new revelations, miraculous powers, and novel practices like “Treasure Hunting,” “Sozo ministry,” “24/7 prayer rooms,” and “schools of supernatural ministry.” Some groups embrace all of these, others only some.
Designed for individuals or groups, this study guide—used with the full-length companion book, God’s Super-Apostles—will help you understand this bewildering movement. You’ll learn what New Apostolic Reformation leaders teach about topics like apostles, prophets, spiritual warfare, demons, and miracles. You’ll learn how their teachings about these topics deviate from historic Pentecostal and charismatic teachings. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to respond to their teachings with Scripture. It will also guide you in developing personal strategies for countering the New Apostolic Reformation’s growing influence.
<strong>Editorial Reviews for God's Super-Apostles</strong>
"In two recent books, R. Douglas Geivett and Holly Pivec provide a balanced biblical critique of the New Apostolic Reformation.… Both books are well written, fairly argued, and amply documented…. As a classical Pentecostal, I see brothers and sisters among leaders and followers of the New Apostolic Reformation. Chances are, you, your family, or your church has heard of NAR’s doctrines or have been influenced by them. With R. Douglas Geivett and Holly Pivec, I believe that NAR doctrines are not true because unbiblical and unhelpful because not true." <strong>—George P. Wood,</strong> Executive Editor, Assemblies of God Publications; General Council of the Assemblies of God
"God’s Super-Apostles is a clear and winsome work that provides just the right depth of examination, and that comes to clear and biblical conclusions." <strong>—Tim Challies,</strong> Author and blogger at Challies.com
<strong>Endorsements for God's Super-Apostles</strong>
“Given the explosion of the apostolic movements, God’s Super-Apostles represents a concise and valuable survey of what is happening around the globe. Geivett and Pivec provide insightful biblical and historical analyses, which are useful for those wanting to understand these sometimes bewildering movements. Especially beneficial are the distinctions the authors make between the teachings of the historic Pentecostal churches and the more recent New Apostolic Reformation views of such leaders as C. Peter Wagner and others.” <strong>—Vinson Synan,</strong> Dean Emeritus, Regent University School of Divinity
“The authors clearly and systematically describe the movement’s origins and outworkings, and they offer a thoughtful, balanced, and biblical counterpoint to its many errors and excesses. Their work is eminently practical, desperately needed, and long overdue.” <strong>—Paul Carden,</strong> Executive Director, The Center for Apologetics Research
