God's Super-ApostlesWe have another great book review opportunity from our friends at Weaver Book Company. This time around reviewers may choose either God’s Super-Apostles: Encountering the Worldwide Prophets and Apostles Movement (176 pages) or A New Apostolic Reformation? A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement (272 pages). Both of these books cover the same territory. The shorter book is more of an overview and the longer book does a much deeper dive into the topic. You pick the book that’s right for you.

About God’s Super-Apostles:
God’s Super-Apostles provides a concise entry-level overview of the key teachings and practices of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement. This is a key resource in grasping the significance of this global, confusing, and controversial movement.

A New Apostolic Reformation? A Biblical Response to a Worldwide MovementAbout A New Apostolic Reformation:
This critique provides a framework for understanding and interpreting the widespread but little-known New Apostolic Reformation movement. As the authors state in the preface: “We write this book with two major goals in mind. First, to give people an idea of the sheer size and reach of the NAR movement. And second, to systematize its key teachings and practices and evaluate them on the basis of Scripture and careful reasoning. . . . In our judgment, the NAR perspective crosses these boundaries [that is, certain broad parameters, revealed in Scripture and practiced in the historical orthodox church], and it does so in part because of flawed theology rooted in a flawed understanding of Scripture.

“We wish to warn readers about a possible confusion: Some critics have linked the NAR movement with mainstream Pentecostalism and charismatics. We do not do this. In fact, it is our contention that the NAR movement deviates from classical Pentecostal and charismatic teachings. This movement has emerged out of independent charismatic churches and, thus, has gained a foothold in many of those churches in varying degrees. But we do not argue for cessationism, the view that the ‘miraculous gifts’ listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are no longer active in the church. Whether the miraculous gifts are ongoing has no bearing on the arguments of our book.”
