Playing With Holy Fire by Michael Brown, PhD


A wake-up call to the Pentecostal-Charismatic Church.  The Pentecostal-Charismatic church has experienced wildfire growth.  Such rapid growth means many ill-prepared leaders; this has led to moral scandals, financial corruption, doctrinal errors, personal flakiness, spiritual flakiness, prophetic abuse and more.  Christians lose their faith because of these errors in the Church.  Brown addresses trends in the Pentecostal-Charismatic movement damaging the church’s credibility and hindering spiritual growth.

Over the last hundred-plus years the Pentecostal-Charismatic church has witnessed miraculous conversions.
From the Azusa Street Revival, which began in 1906, a movement has grown to bring more people to Jesus than any other movement in history. While secularism continues to be on the rise in today’s society, many areas of the world still experience church growth, thanks to Pentecostal-Charismatic Christians.

But the Pentecostal-Charismatic church is also plagued with sexual immorality, financial corruption, doctrinal error, personal flakiness, spiritual gullibility, prophetic abuse, and more. In many ways the state of the church today is not too different from how it was long ago in Corinth. To make matters worse, the church hides these acts under the cloak of liberty in the Holy Spirit.

Michael Brown sounds a wake-up call to the church and addresses some of the most glaring problems, from inaccurate prophetic words that obscure true ones to ministries using scripturally armed marketing techniques in order to manipulate believers into giving. Brown shows us why we must clean up house so the church can grow, flourish, and fulfill God’s kingdom purposes.
