New Apostolic Reformation: An Update on Two New Books

Many of you have asked me about the progress of my two forthcoming books on the New Apostolic Reformation. I’m pleased to share that the books are in production and are scheduled to be released this fall. They will be published by Weaver Book Company.

If you’re looking for an overview of the NAR movement and you want a concise biblical evaluation of its teachings, you might begin with God’s Super-Apostles: Encountering the Worldwide Prophets and Apostles Movement.

If you want a fuller exposition of NAR teachings and a more complete examination of the movement, then you’ll want to read A New Apostolic Reformation? A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement.

I’ve had the privilege of partnering with a co-author on these books. His name is R. Douglas Geivett, and he’s a professor at Talbot School of Theology. Dr. Geivett is a brilliant Christian philosopher and has debated the leading atheists, including Richard Dawkins, Michael Shermer, and Matt Ridley. He has degrees from multiple schools, including Multnomah School of the Bible, Gonzaga University, Dallas Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California. Other books he has written or edited include In Defense of Miracles (InterVarsity Press) and Evil and the Evidence for God (Temple University Press). He’s also a contributor to the Apologetics Study Bible.

I’m thrilled that Dr. Geivett has applied his high-level skills and brilliant mind to an evaluation of NAR teachings. You can read his announcement about the books at Doug Geivett’s Blog.

For additional details about the books or to pre-order copies, see the publisher’s website.

Please help us spread the word about these books!

    It would be great if it could be available on Kindle as well.

    Can’t wait to read these!  They can’t come out quickly enough.  Have you heard of the Holy Ghost movie that features KoRn’s Brian Welch, along with Bill Johnson and Heidi Baker, and Phil Vischer and Michael W. Smith?  KoRn shared a link on their facebook page, if you want to look for it.  The NAR are paddling down the mainstream faster than you can put on a life vest.  I was sharing with evangelical friends about the issues at hand, and they were shocked to hear what I was sharing.  It was all new to them.  And they asked the obvious question:  why aren’t leaders in the church talking about this and warning American evangelicals?  I told them my perspective, but I would love to hear how you would answer that question.  Thank you for all your work!  Bless you!

    Beth, thanks for your comment. I hadn’t heard of the movie, but will check it out. I think many American evangelical leaders who are not part of the Pentecostal-charismatic movement don’t really know about or understand the NAR movement. They may not pay much attention to all that goes on in Pentecostal and charismatic churches.

    Glad you are writing these, and I second the idea to put them onto kindle. It’s how I’m buying most of my books nowadays.

  5. Holly Says:

    John and M.K., yes, the books will be available on Kindle. Thanks for your suggestion!

    Would love for you to give an update on Jonathan Welton. He has had a influence here in a Free Methodist Church and people are going to his Academy now…since when did he become a Dr??  Anyway, the NAR is slithering into other traditional denominations. It was one of your blogs that actually got me to tune into him so thank you. I will definitely buy both of your books!

  7. John Says:

    Amazon shows a publish date of 31 October but no sign of Kindle availability. I hope they will be available on Kindle right from the outset.

    If it were possible to preorder on Kindle I’d preorder one and maybe both of them. I’m looking forward to reading them.

  8. Kathryn Says:

    I, too, would pre-order on Kindle.  Only read ebooks now so I will wait if I have to. Thanks for all your efforts, Holly!

    I got the Kindle edition of A New Apostolic Revolution a few days ago.  Thrilled as I have been waiting for it to be published–checking Amazon every couple of days.  I am amazed at all the research that went into it–the footnotes and all the links to online documents, websites, youtube videos.  It is like reading a report, an analysis, a compendium of data!  I read a little each day as there is much to digest.  Excellent!!

    Just finished reading “A New Apistolic Reformation?”. Invaluable resource. Well researched and thoroughly biblical. I also liked the tone. I had heard about NAR but never had time or resources to find out what’s it all about. This book gave me clear and biblical picture of the movement and it’s influence. 

    I hava also noticed another “wave” coming in through this movement, namely the Quantum mysticism that is beginning to rise it’s head and being promoted bt some who are within NAR. They promise that by understanding the revelation about quantum phenomena we will be able to work great miracles and God is sending from heaven sound and lightwaves that will make us vibrate with heavenly frequences. I was baffled by this all until reading your book and realizing the emphasis on “prophets and their “new truths” that are necessary for experiencing the “new” things God is supposedly doing. 

    One more time thank you for your excellent book.

    Pasi,

    Thank you for your encouraging comments about my book. I’m glad to hear it clarified some NAR teachings for you. Have you seen much NAR influence in Finland?
