    I found a cheap copy of a one volume edition of 2 books by Jack Deere the former OT prof at DTS. The book contains Surpised by the Power of the Spirit and Surprised by the Voice of God

    Seems he addresses some issues that make most "baptists" uncomfortable.

    Has anyone else read these books? Thoughts?

    I am only a couple chapters into the first book...but it appears to be his spiritual journey of going from a strict cessationist with regard to the gifts of the Spirit to a noncessationist.

    Jack Deere is a charismatic false teacher and prophet.

    quote:
    "Jack Deere, who taught at Dallas Theological Seminary, was a cessationist who converted to the noncessationist position - a move he describes in his book "Surprised by the Power of the Spirit."

    From September '88 through April '92, Deere was an associate pastor at the Vineyard Christian Fellowship of Anaheim. With Wayne Grudem, he was one of the movement's primary theologicians.

    Some remarks Deere allegedly made during a conference in Sydney, Australia were questioned in the April, 1990 issue of "The Briefing." (i.e. that the church does not know what the true Gospel is; and that Scripture is not sufficient for Christian living). A portion of the article is quoted in False Prophets...Pseudo Apostles, & A New Gospel

    The Vineyard in May 1992, responded with Vineyard Position Paper #2: The Vineyard's Response to "The Briefing"

    During his time with the Vineyard, Deere promoted the concepts of what C. Peter Wagner termed the Third Wave.

    Deere promotes the Toronto Blessing Movement, including the Manifest Sons of God doctrine. According to information on Jack Deere's homepage he is currently concentrating on writing and conducting "a conference ministry with Paul Cain and Mike Bickle" (whose Grace Training Center he endorses).

    Deere has taught at Rick Joyner's Morningstar School of Ministry and, along with Francis Frangipane had his itinerary published at Rick Joyner's site." [end quote]

    Sounds like another Baptist gone bad and chasing money.

    Unfortunately, it's not only Baptists that have been swept up into the Word of Faith/prosperity movement. Many from all denominations have taken faith and turned it into a controlable "power" by which you "force" God to move on your behalf, and thereby get what you want.
