Help for the ones called to this extraordinary ministry - and for those who want to minister to them.

Scripture lists prophecy as one of five ministry gifts for the Church, but prophetically gifted people have the reputation for being difficult - sometimes impossible - to live and work with.

Prophetic pastor Loren Sandford delves into the mysteries of this office, including

- why prophets seem extreme and moody
- how prophetic people hear from God
- the difference between adrenaline and anointing
- the four signs of a true prophet
- how to pastor a prophetic person
- how to recognise this gift in children

Prophets can learn to step out of loneliness and isolation into balance and wholeness. As they grow in this unique calling, the Body of Christ will indeed be blessed.


Author Information:
R. Loren Sandford is the founding pastor of New Song Fellowship, which is affiliated with the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. A long time prophetic voice and worship leader, he is the author of a number of books, including Purifying the Prophetic. He and his wife, Beth, have three grown children and live in Thornton, Colorado.


Endorsements:

"With piercing accuracy, this book will not only grant sanity to prophetically gifted people, but it will give a measure of peace to pastors in their quest to relate to strongly gifted prophets."
- Dr. James W. Goll, Encounters Network; author, The Coming Prophetic Revolution and The Seer

"This book ought to be a required manual for both churches and the emerging prophets within them."
- John Loren Sandford, co-founder, Elijah House Ministries; author, The Elijah Task and Elijah Among Us

"Because the messenger is the message and the prophet is the prophecy, this book is a must-read for the Church at large and for all called by God to be His prophetic spokespeople. It is a classic and will prove an invaluable, lifelong tool to many who desire to know God's voice and ways."

Prophecy is cherished by many as one of the fivefold ministry gifts described in Ephesians 4: 11 and foundational to the life of the church. Yet prophetically gifted people have a reputation of being different and difficult to live and work with. Understanding Prophetic People, written by a prophetic pastor who grew up as the son of a prophetic pastor and leader, helps readers better understand, relate to, and even minister to prophetically gifted people. R. Loren Sandford answers fascinating questions such as, What is it like to grow up as a prophetically gifted person? What is the difference between adrenaline and anointing? Who validates authentic prophetic ministry? How does a pastor rightly relate to a prophet? This rich resource seeks deeper understanding and wisdom on issues of foundational importance for prophetic people and everyone who loves God??'s gifts.

"In Understanding Prophetic People, Loren writes from the unique position of being an established prophet himself, but one whose heart is fully and constantly pastoral. Loren continuously asks the questions 'Yes, but what does this mean on the street?' and 'How does this affect the local church?' and 'How will what you say affect the common Christian in the pew each Sunday?' That itself is a much-needed check on the prophetic stream. Many emerging prophets have not understood the need for such relevance. Loren makes it clear that each prophet's heart needs to be informed and checked by such questions, and that pastors and church leaders need to understand and minister to the prophetic. Best, he tells us wisdom for the doing. This book ought to be a required manual for both churches and the emerging prophets within them."--John Loren Sandford, co-founder, Elijah House Ministries; author, The Elijah Task and Elijah Among Us "When Loren asked me to consider writing an endorsement for his new book, Understanding Prophetic People, I looked forward to reading the manuscript, as I have enjoyed and appreciated his previous books. What I was not expecting was a classic! When I first began in prophetic ministry in the early 1980s, Loren's father's book The Elijah Task was the classic that I and many others looked to in understanding the ministry of a prophet. What has been sorely missing, however--until now!--was the companion book on the making and makeup of a true prophet. Because the messenger is the message and the prophet is the prophecy, this book is a must-read for both the Church at large and by all called by God to be His prophetic spokespeople. It is with real excitement that I recommend the study of this book. It will prove an invaluable, lifelong tool to many who desire to know Gods voice and ways."--Marc A. Dupont, Mantle of Praise Ministries, Inc. "With piercing accuracy, John Loren Sandford paints a vivid picture for us in his new book, Understanding Prophetic People. Not only will this book grant sanity to prophetically gifted people, but it will give a measure of peace to pastors in their quest to relate to strongly gifted prophets. This is a welcome addition to the growing arsenal of equipping materials to help mature the prophetic movement."--Dr. James W. Goll, Encounters Network; author, The Coming Prophetic Revolution, The Seer, Dream Language and many others

Value at twice the price
5 stars By Jacky Jackson, Feb 22 2013
The Prophetic is a hot topic. If you are prophetic you don't claim it, but rather are acclaimed by others...but on the way to acclaimation, Sandford explains what life can be like for the person learning to walk in the prophetic. 

I've heard ppl who aren't particularly gifted in the prophetic , after reading this book say, " but these things apply to every ministry." 

I've also heard ppl who would like to be prophets as part of an immature need for self aggrandizement lap this book up..

On the whole it is a helpful book debunking spirro chasers and cults and bringing prophets, as all other gifts given to the church, squarely under authority. I found it very helpful , scripturally sound, well written and to the point.

5 stars By Glenda, Jul 30 2007
I thank God for Loren Sandford who has explained articulately the wilderness experience and the night of the soul experience. For those of us who have been through these experiences we can breathe a sigh of relief. This book is essential reading for Pastors and/or Prophets. Loren also outlines his experiences in dealing with the prophetic as the Pastor/Prophet of a church and the pitfalls we can avoid. His integrity, honesty and transparency is refreshing and encouraging. I am extremely grateful for this book.
