The Gift of Prophetic Preaching: A Charismatic Approach

The Gift of Prophetic Preaching: A Charismatic Approach

by Michael Eaton


1 New & Used Starting at $54.99


The apostle Paul urged us to, "Pursue love, and earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy." Michael Eaton argues that there is a kind of preaching which is a "sub-section" of the gift of prophecy and that the balance between love plus the gift of prophetic preaching is the greatest need of the 21st Century Church.
