It poqer a clear explanation for the gap between the acts of the Bible and the lack of power on a large scale in the Western Church.
Wimber had many verified signs and wonders in his day. He gives an honest evaluation of wlmber the Western mind often thinks and how we hinder the flow of the Spirit in us. This was very helpful and challenging.

As you conclude this book he inspires you to trust God and take the risk of faith to be used by him to demonstrate the kingdom of God against the kingdom of darkness. John Wimber, one of the founders of the Vineyard movement, was a pioneer in brining Power Evangelism back to the church.
This book brings a deep theology to the movement and the method of Evangelism. Wimber methodically goes through the Biblical basis for the power of the Holy Spirit being joohn to fruitful evangelism. What is also essential is the church history in the Appendixes describing how this is NOT a new phenomena but something that has been with the church since Acts 2.
Highly reco John Wimber, one of the founders of the Vineyard movement, was a pioneer in brining Power Evangelism back to the church. Highly recommend this book for anyone interesting growing in their confidence in Evangelism. I wish every Christian in America would learn the principles in evangelisj book and take johj seriously. We would see this nation transformed with the jlhn of the gospel.
Disappointing I am on the lookout for testimonies of Christians who have experienced God’s power in supernatural ways, and who can interpret these experiences through the lens winber a really well thought out understanding of scripture. I am still looking Mar 23, Rob Markley rated it liked it Shelves: Read this a long time ago at a time when I was in such an environment that it should have impacted a lot more than it has.
Barely remember it although I do remember what its about. When I first read this book, in the early s, I found it fascinating. It’s a mixture of theology and personal testimony about the ‘Signs and Wonders’ that permeated the Vineyard movement of Christianity and many other denominations in the s and thereafter.
When I read the book, I didn’t know much about these things, and can remember finding it evaangelism and very interesting, as well as inspiring and encouraging. I re-read it in the past ten days or so, about a chapter at a time. I was When I first read this book, in the early s, I found it fascinating.
I was slightly surprised that it now seems fairly ‘old hat’. It was interesting to read of John Wimber’s personal experience again, beginning from a rather cynical conservative evangelical standpoint. But twenty-five years after the book was first published, there’s not much that seems radical. Perhaps these theories, so startling at the time, have now become absorbed into mainstream Christianity.
Indeed, what surprised me was that Wimber was so positive about what he terms ‘programmatic evangelism’, pwoer about congregational church life in general. It felt like a three star book, reading it this time; it’s well laid out and clear, with plenty of sound Scriptural explanations.
It just didn’t seem to say anything new. But since I’d have rated it five stars fifteen years ago, I’m compromising on four.
Worth reading by anyone who is still suspicious of the charismatic movement as it was termed and the use of Gifts today, and evangeljsm as an interesting historical document for anyone who has been part of the Vineyard or evangeliem groups. But don’t expect anything mind-blowing. Mar 23, Jacob Aitken rated it really liked it Shelves: This is an interesting point that I think most sides miss.
In fact, the only ones who are aware of this fact are old-school Dispensationalists. Here is an example. Any good dispensationalist will not sing that song. And they are right. Dispensationalists, more consistent than any other cessationist, deny both the antecedent and the consequent.
Demons, Disease, Nature, and Death.
wlmber And to allay fears, Wimber says the baptism of the Holy Spirit happens at conversion, can have many fillings, and does not necessarily manifest itself in tongues. I had heard horror stories pwoer John Wimber. And I certainly do not endorse all of his teachings, but this book was rather sane and remarkably on point in theology. Aug 08, Jonathan rated it liked it Shelves: Really appreciated his passion for combining the love of God with the power of God.
They should always be joined. Even more, the power of God is truly shown when His truth and His power, or the supernatural manifestation of His presence, works in and from His love. Nevertheless, there are a number of weaknesses to this book. It is not comprehensive, and, in fact, touches very lightly on some jjohn that really should be addressed in a book like this.
And, at times, Wimber or Springer, seemed too Really appreciated his passion for combining the love of God with the power of God.
And, at times, Wimber or Springer, seemed too quick to right off certain realities associated with suffering and the roles God has for it in our lives. Yet, Wimber’s words challenge me to my core. They provoke and exhort me to examine myself as to whether I am being truly faithful to God in all my theology and, more, in my doxology.
I know I’m not, which is why I need people like Wimber to challenge me and lovingly hold my hand and with clear truth and grace show me the power of God working in our world today. He is the living God and He is still active. Apr 13, Dennis Podryadchikov rated it liked it. John Wimber writes about a topic that is not often associated with academic research. Even though many have tried to give this topic an academic foundation, Wimber seems to have gone the farthest discussing this “other dimension of Christian growth [that] adds much more” along with the teaching doctrine and building a moral character.
The author does much of what any researcher and teacher would do: Wimber uses the format of a workbook to help his readers to understand and adopt his conclusions.
At the same time, he does not enforce the reader to accept his point of view. The material in the book does make one ponder the question, why contemporary Christians accept some elements of the life of the early Christians and omit others. The book is an enlightening read for an open mind, whether it is an honest student of the Bible or church leader.
Jan 04, Jeremy rated it liked it Shelves: This is a very quick read and the most important thing it did for me was to remind and encourage me not to stifle the Holy Spirit in my life. But, honestly, it’s a slightly misleading title. Yes, the book discusses evangelistic topics and provides some pretty good insight that still apply This is a very quick read and the most important thing it did for me was to remind and encourage me not to stifle the Holy Spirit in my life.
The concept is that when we embrace the Holy Spirit in our lives, evangelism and discipleship flow naturally out of us. But the majority of the book is spent encouraging and challenging Christians to embrace the reality of the spiritual realm and discussing what the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our lives may look like. Jan 25, Jake rated it liked it. Some really good insights on the importance of affirming the occurrence of miracles in the church today.
However its argumentation is somewhat fragmented and would be unlikely to impress a serious critic. Aug 17, Chris rated it really liked it. This is a great book on evangelism, looking at it from the perspective of how to listen to God and partner with the Holy Spirit in sharing the gospel message.
I found it inspirational and challenging, and plan to read it again in the future. I found the book to be quite challenging and well written.
Having been a Christian myself for many years and being raised in a baptist household I didn’t agree with everything John Wimber discussed in the book. However, it did get me thinking. Jul 15, Maureen rated it liked it Shelves: Oct 27, Tash rated it really liked it.
