About the Book

Specific tenets of Word of Faith theology produce serious concerns in terms of their scriptural validity and continuity with orthodox Christian teaching. Scripture challenges believers to “test the spirits to see whether they are from God” (I John 4:1, NIV). In this volume, an attempt is made to test—or discern—specific claims of Word of Faith theology by comparing and contrasting them with the Word of God.

“Dr. Morris has done an excellent job in exposing this Achilles heel through balanced and fair criticism, showing why a continual reformation from within this movement will be necessary.” 

—David T. Williams, DTh 

professor of systematic theology, University of Fort Hare


“The author had a clearly defined goal.”

—Marlon Winedt, PhD

“Dr. Morris has excelled in both his knowledge and accuracy regarding this research.”

—George D. Voorhis, DMin, DLitt

“Thought-provoking and … evidence of good research.”

—Noel Woodbridge, DEd, DTh 

senior academic, South African Theological Seminary
