My co-author and I have been pleased at the media attention for our recent books on the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). Radio interviews, podcasts, and reviews from high-profile outlets like World Magazine and Challies.com have put the NAR on the radar of more people who have never heard of this aggressive movement that has taken over many churches.
I was disturbed this week by Kris Vallotton’s article titled “5 Tests of a True Prophet.” I was even more disturbed to see that his article was published by Charisma Magazine.
I regularly receive comments from my readers–some who strongly disagree with me. One comment I received earlier this week came from “Pam,” a follower of Brian Simmons–a NAR leader who has undertaken his own NAR translation of the Bible, called the Passion Translation.

The Good Book Blog, published by Talbot School of Theology, featured an important interview with my co-author Doug Geivett about our new books.
