The Confusing World of Benny Hinn
Revised and updated July 2013
Time and again preachers burst onto the scene attracting attention and followers with what they claim are new insights into Scripture and new powers from God. In time they are exposed as being not only unoriginal but false. Completely revised, expanded, and updated. Foreword by Dave Hunt.
"This penetrating analysis of Benny Hinn's teachings is highly recommended. The authors put Hinn and his teachings under the scrutiny of Scripture and provide thorough documentation regarding how this healing evangelist repeatedly departs from sound doctrine and practice." —Dr. Ron Rhodes, President, Reasoning form the Scriptures Ministries
"This is a timely and insightful expose of the doctrinally dangerous, experienced-based extravagances of one of America' s most popular televangelists. Benny Hinn's self-proclaimed 'revelations,' supported by dramatic hypnotic powers, are not only undermining the historic Christian conviction in the sufficiency of Holy Scripture, but they are leading millions into the confusing world of Christian shamanism. This volume is blunt, bold, and biblical scrutiny of Hinn's aberrant, unorthodox, and at times, heretical teachings." —Dr. Norman L. Geisler, Dean, Southern Evangelical Seminary
"Nowhere have I encountered so thorough an exposition of Benny Hinn's extravagances as in this book. From casual reading previously of Hinn's materials, I knew that his 'ministry' was highly suspect, but The Confusing World of Benny Hinn convinced me that his views are not only deplorable, but outright heresy! For all who wonder about Hinn, this book will bring the enlightenment desired." —Dr. Jay E. Adams, Pastor, author, counselor, and lecturer
"The Confusing World of Benny Hinn stands as the definitive examination of the TV preacher bizarre theology. This fascinating book uses solid research and thorough documentation to expose Hinn's propensity for exaggeration and myth making. The authors are to be commended for their integrity and painstaking accuracy of their work." —Ole Anthony, President Trinity Foundation, Inc.
"In my mind, the book that you have before you is not as much an indictment of Benny Hinn as it is an indictment of those experience-driven Christians who create the likes of a Benny Hinn for their own enjoyment and the on-going promotion of their superficial spirituality." —Dr. Don Matzat, Author and radio host of Issues, Etc.
