Usually arrives at our store within 4-7 days
The global movement of mystical-miracle enthusiasts have put a modern face on historical heresies. Men and women posing as prophets and apostles make millions preying on the sick, poor, and emotionally fragile. Behind a veil of glamour, many self-proclaimed pastors mask their spiritual abuse with claims of special power from the Holy Spirit. Defining Deception pulls back the curtain to reveal the truth behind this lucrative industry. Written with a unique blend of theology, history, and personal experience, Costi Hinn and Anthony Wood have lovingly, yet sternly, exposed the mystical-miracle fraud in the hope that Christians will unite against those who have turned Jesus into a commodity. It is also a call to all Christians of good faith to help those trapped by these corrupt leaders rediscover the biblical Gospel of Christ. Every Christian is called to "earnestly contend for the faith" (Jude 3) even when it's controversial-Defining Deception will equip Christians to do just that.
About the Author
Costi Hinn and Anthony Wood are committed to exposing deceptions surrounding the modern "mystical-miracle" movement. Both have written and spoken extensively on the matter, describing it as, "Attempting to corrupt the evangelical church from the inside..." Costi is the nephew of notorious "faith healer" Benny Hinn and grew up entrenched within the inner circle of greed and chicanery. Anthony founded a 2,000 person weekly ministry to college students and participated in conferences and television specials by infamous televangelists. These unique backgrounds inspire each man's holy zeal for people to know the dangers involved with false teaching and false promises. Hinn's testimony and response to "The Prosperity Gospel" have recently been featured on CNN and Christianity Today. Wood's posts on modern faith forgeries have been read by hundreds of thousands. Hinn and Wood are humbled to share the story of how God rescued them out of the growing miracle-mystical movement and have a deep passion to help modern evangelicalism experience the life saving faith provided in the pure and simple teaching of Holy Scripture.
