The Disease of the Health and Wealth Gospels

The Disease of the Health and Wealth Gospels

$9.99

Paperback

Perhaps no other issues more directly affect the lives of professing Christians as do the issues of health and wealth and their relationship to the will of God. Gordon Fee looks at the treatment of these two themes as frequently found in popular Christian teaching. Based on solid exegesis of Scripture, this book suggests that there may be yet a "more excellent way" in viewing these emotionally charged issues.

Does God will that the true believer in Christ be in good physical health? Is a Christian promised good financial health by virtue of his or her faith in Christ? If the Christian does not experience these blessings, must we assume he or she is outside the will of God? Gordon Fee provides a provocative discussion and a direct challenge to all who struggle with these issues.

Essential for anyone in healing ministry
4 stars By michael, Apr 05 2008
Gordon Fee the well known author of several texts on interpreting scripture used in Bible Colleges around the world, applies those principles of Biblical Interpretation to the scriptures used as a basis for the  prosperity Gospels . The result is challenging and yet offers an explanation for those who do not see instant success and are left to live without instant success in wealth or health. I personaly rate it as the best book I have read in the last five years . The only flaw I found was that it was too short and I am hoping that the author will produce a  more in depth version than this 45 page booklet.
