Book Review

I finished reading Charismatic Chaos by John MacArthur last night.

This book is a thorough evaluation and examination of the Charismatic movement. As usual MacArthur backs up what he says with Scripture.

This book could easily be used as a textbook for a class, but it is also very readable for the person interested in learning more about the Charismatic movement on their own.

Each chapter is segmented into questions that MacArthur answers. For example, the question for chapter 1 is “Is experience a valid test?” While answering that question, MacArthur introduces other questions related to that main question of each chapter. A sub-question for chapter 1 is “Was Peter a Charismatic?”.

I found the presentation and layout of the material excellent and thoroughly examined.

Overall, I would recommend this book if you are interested in a Biblical evaluation of the Charismatic movement.
