:For the past half-century, C. Peter Wagner has been at the leading edge of the key spiritual paradigm shifts that have been accompanied by major moves of the Holy Spirit. In the 1960s the missionary movement in South America was at its peak--and Dr. Wagner was there. In the 1970s he was a recognized authority in the church-growth movement. In the 1980s he taught a popular course at Fuller Seminary with Vineyard movement leader John Wimber that advocated praying healing for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance and spiritual warfare. Dr. Wagner coined the phrase Third Wave to describe this fresh move of the Holy Spirit--the impact of which is still being felt today. In the 1990s he became a leader of the New Apostolic Reformation, and in the new millennium he has championed the Dominion Mandate, adopting the Seven Mountain (or 7M) template for reclaiming the culture for God's kingdom.
For five decades, Dr. Wagner has led the church from one great move of God to the next, riding the wave of the Spirit through changes he never imagined when he first answered God's call to ministry. In Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets, and Theologians, Wagner tells, for the first time, his personal story of ongoing transformation. Readers will get a close-up view of the seismic shifts in the church's recent history, through the eyes of one of the only people to have seen it all unfold.
Dr. C. Peter Wagner is the President of the Global Harvest Ministries and Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute (established in 1998). Prior to this, Wagner and his wife served as missionaries in Bolivia, and from 1971, he was Professor of Church Growth at Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Missions and served on several mission oriented committees and organizations such as Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization and American Society of Missiology.
Wagner has also been associated with several global movements of the Holy Spirit. His outspoken advocacy of praying for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance, the ministry and role of apostles and prophets in the church today, and demonic deliverance have identified Peter as a pioneer in the arena of spiritual warfare. Perhaps his most significant contribution so far has been his relentless effort to promote strategic and effective prayer.
Wagner has written over 60 books. Those currently in print include: Your Spiritual Gifts Can Help Your Church Grow, Strategies for Church Growth, How to Have a Healing Ministry, Prayer Warrior Series, and Churchquake!
