    Hank Hanegraaff goes on an all-out assault on Word of Faith teachers in his new book, Christianity in Crisis 21st Century. One can almost feel his frustration with the state of "Faith" Christianity pouring out of the pages. The result is a book that is passionate and full of good information, but poorly written.4/5. This book has less of an edge to it, perhaps because its contributors, including Guinness, Thomas Oden, Paul Vitz, and David Wells, represent a more seasoned scholarship and perspective. But, together, the two volumes—representing 23 authors—reflect a level of critical self-examination of which evangelicals seemed incapable even ten years ago.

It could be that the Trump-era crisis of the evangelical mind is a parochial phenomenon, confined to theologians and academics and pundits and a. The authors of The Coming Evangelical Crisis have rightly perceived that the issues of salvation and worship are central to what is wrong among contemporary evangelicals.
