The charismatic movement of the past quarter-century has made an impact on the church unparalleled in history. But one legacy of the movement is confusion and mushy thinking. In Charismatic Chaos, John F. MacArthur calls for biblical evaluation and analyzes the doctrinal differences between charismatics and non-charismatics in the light of Scripture. 'My principal concern, ' writes John MacArthur, 'is to call the church to a firm commitment to the purity and authority of the Scriptures, and thereby to strengthen the unity of the true church.' To tough questions that seem to divide, Charismatic Chaos provides tougher answers that strive to unite. This book tackles such questions as - Is experience a valid test of truth? - Does God still give revelation? - Prophets, fanatics, or heretics? - Does God still heal? - What should we think of the Signs and Wonders movement? - Does the Bible promise health and wealth

Review: Charismatic ChaosUser Review - Christianbook.com
MacArthur makes many valid points...HOWEVER, he also displays a total ignorance and misunderstanding in many things he says. If I follow him word for word, many of my non-charismatic friends, who are followers of MacArthur would now be considered suspect as trustworthy. It is impossible for MacAuthur to have heard from God on anything he has printed...for basically, he says 'we know longer hear from God by inspiritation etc.' Again, I do agree with him exposing error...but I must also say, he has exposed himself as being in error as well. My biggest issue is his use of the word: 'all charismatics'...if there is one problem child in his fellowship...then all members of his fellowship should be labeled as 'problem children and unreliable as well.'
