Format: Hardcover
I attended the Strange Fire conference - where they gave this book away (which is why it's not in my purchases).

The book covers much of what was said at the conference - although I'd encourage you to watch the videos online. Of particular importance were the lectures by Steve Lawson, Conrad Mbewe, Tom Pennington.

In a nutshell, the charismatic movement has sunk to the point where anything and everything is attributed to the Holy Spirit. This is nothing short of heresy. Scripture plainly explains who the Holy Spirit is and what He does - and when this is compared to current charismatic practices, the contrast is obvious and striking.

The book lays down the theological reasons for this. It does so in an articulate, authoritative and readable fashion.

Is the book divisive? Absolutely! The truth always divides. Scripture was meant to do so - it is "profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction."

I unreservedly recommend this book to anyone looking to have the light of Biblical truth shed on the charismatic movement.

As we are serving the same Christ, let us love one another as He commanded, not suggested. Christianity has hypocrites, imposters & extremists just as any other group of humans does. To dismiss the gift of tongues & the Gifts of the Spirit is to reject scripture & thus the very God we say we love. Of course, this is usually done to avoid heresy & extremes which are far too common. That is why we ministers are called to teach the church the Word of God & all believers are called to test the spirits. If there were no current ongoing moving of the Spirit there would be nothing to test or prove. My bother once said to me, the man with the experience is not at the mercy of the man with the argument. I have no need or desire to argue, but I will point out scriptural truth. Besides fighting with each other is one of the biggest reasons the "world" laughs the church to scorn. Forgive is LORD! As with all things, we need to eat the meat & throw out the bones. I have friends in many denominations & not all of them believe in the Holy Spirit baptism. I love them all. They are all FAMILY. I dare not despise those who are redeemed by the blood of Christ! However, denominational stance has never out weighed the Word. I have seen many extremes, but it doesn't repel me from the precious Holy Spirit baptism that transformed & emboldened me as a teen. I told the Holy Spirit back in my last year of high school if this experience is for me & I believe it is, I want it. I don't want to seek anything that is not You Jesus. Jesus, the baptizer as per scripture, said he would baptize in the Holy Spirit. this is alluded to & clearly seen multiple times in the NT.Read more ›

John MacArthur was a riveting influence in my early teenage years, introducing me to the Bible's many deep stories and its relevance to the 21st Century. I would buy his books to pour into them my time, effort and study, from Twelve Ordinary Men to Twelve Extraordinary Women, he inspired me to pursue my calling as a preacher and teacher.

In his latest book Strange Fire, by which he also held a Conference with the same title and theme, John MacArthur does what very few ministers and leaders dare to do, take on the Charismatic movement head-on and apply strict biblical standards. It was about time that an extra-biblical resource was provided to address the current Charismatic movement, which to provide a preview, involved questionable acts of the "Holy Spirit" such as uncontrollable laughter and more, which were also mentioned in his recent book Worship, which set up the stage for Strange Fire. However the only concern I must express as an evangelical is MacArthur's Presbyterian stance on the Holy Spirit's manifestations. He for one does not believe that speaking in tongues can still be done today, or other miraculous happenings as witnessed in the book of Acts, this due to the belief that the Holy Spirit has ceased operating in certain ways. Personally I must voice my displeasure with this side of the book, but on the flip side, he does well to expose the extremists on the other end of the spectrum.

I have received this complimentary book from Nelson Books through the Book Sneeze program in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required and the views expressed in my review are strictly my own.

Excellent. I really enjoy all of John MacArthur's works. This book is a very thorough analysis of elements of the charismatic movement where the Holy Spirit is being worshiped to the exclusion of Jesus and God the Father (since the Spirits ministry is to convict and focus on Christ so that we become more and more like our Savior, Jesus). He does a very good job of supporting his viewpoint with scripture and really explains why "the canon is closed" and where "speaking in tongues" in today's gibberish (as opposed to actual foreign languages as occurred at Pentecost) is not a spiritual gift anymore. He also highlights doctrinal compromise by this movement, such as their "joining in brotherhood" with the Roman Catholic church which most born again Christians should question (since Roman Catholicism is a system of works at its core and not of faith alone).Highly recommended for those who have questions about the charismatic movement, speaking in tongues, etc..
