Paul King: Only Believe

One can see that King knows the field and has read exhaustively in the Word of Faith movement. Unlike many authors, King does not just leave us with an analysis of what is wrong. He concludes with twenty-two statements of what a balanced and healthy faith should look like and a final recommendation, both to contemporary faith leaders and to the critics of contemporary faith teachings. This book is highly recommended to anyone interested in the role of bold faith and in finding out how the Word of Faith movement is maturing in its thinking. It is the conviction of this reviewer that a balanced Faith movement represents the growing edge of the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements across the globe.
