The Disease of the Health & Wealth Gospels

Availability: Ready to download

Does God will that the true believer in Christ be in good physical health? Is a Christian promised good financial health by virtue of his or her faith in Christ? If the Christian does not experience these blessings, must we assume that he or she is outside the will of God? Gordon Fee provides a provocative discussion and a direct challenge to all who struggle with these is Does God will that the true believer in Christ be in good physical health? Is a Christian promised good financial health by virtue of his or her faith in Christ? If the Christian does not experience these blessings, must we assume that he or she is outside the will of God? Gordon Fee provides a provocative discussion and a direct challenge to all who struggle with these issues. Perhaps no other issues more directly affect the lives of professing Christians as do the issues of health and wealth and their relationship to the will of God. In Disease of the Health & Wealth Gospels, Dr. Gordon Fee looks at the treatment of these two themes as frequently found in popular Christian teaching. Based on solid exegesis of the Scriptures, looking at each theme separately, this books suggests that there may be yet a "more excellent way" in viewing these emotionally charged issues. Gordon D. Fee is Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia, and an ordained minister of the Assemblies of God. Considered to be one of the foremost experts in textual criticism of the New Testament of the Bible, Dr. Fee was a member of the editorial board that composed both the New International Version (NIV) and Today's New International Version (TNIV) translations of the Bible. He is also the author of numerous commentaries and books on biblical interpretation, including the popular introductory work How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth (co-authored with Douglas Stuart).

    A very brief, yet potent, prophetic message against modern day false “gospels” written over 30 years ago. Christian teachers and preachers would do well to familiarize themselves with these heresies and understand how and why they rely on poor hermeneutics. This short 45 page book is only a primer, albeit a well written and informative one.

    I could stand to read more. It's more of a short published paper (at 35 pages) than a book, but very succinct and hits the points of the prosperity gospel that are not quite what the bible explains them to be. Great resource for study.

    A fitting booklet to read on MLK Jr. Day.

    Something for all who are concerned with justice and righteousness. Compelling evidence that we need to review our present in light of scripture and not the other way around.

    Gonna review this one a little later - this was a good (and short) read I picked up from my church's library.

    Interesting Dr. Fee presents a short and concise thesis on the subject that is thought provoking. Well worth the time and read!

    Many members of my family are fully submersed in the Health and Wealth Gospels and I read this hoping to see lots of good information. It had some decent insights but was far too brief to get into any detail and its nothing more than a overview. I would like a book like this but only 5x the size and 5x the depth. Really for something this short, the essays would be better suited in a compilation book.

    Read and keep as resource. This short book is more of an extended essay, making it a useful tool for those who have questions about the prosperity gospel. Gordon Fee treats the problems of the "health gospel" separately from the "wealth gospel" making a more effective and precise argument. The book reveals the hermeneutical fallacies of these teachers as well as how they are at variance with the total message of Scripture.

    Good for what it was; a quick explanation of the problems with the health/wealth "gospel". Fee focuses on the hermeneutical problems with this false teaching. Worth the read for someone wanting a quick, introductory understanding of this so called gospel which continues to be a popular heresy in the USA.

    Кратка книжка написана още през далечната 1985. Въпреки, че е доста стара понеже авторът разглежда идеи, а не личности, имена или книги както и това, е се фокусира почти изцяло върху егзегетика и богословие я прави съвсем актуална и днес. задължително четиво за всеки християнин, който се увлича по учения свързани с богатство и здраве.

    Good read. Gives a biblical view of the subject. Great to point out the false teaching of the health and wealth gospel.
