Nearly two decades ago Hank Hanegraaffa€™s award-winning Christianity in Crisis alerted the world to the dangers of a cultic movement within Christianity that threatened to undermine the very foundation of biblical faith. But in the 21st century, there are new dangersa€”new teachers who threaten to do more damage than the last. These are not obscure teachers that Hanegraaff unmasks. We know their names. We have seen their faces, sat in their churches, and heard them shamelessly preach and promote the false pretexts of a give-to-get gospel. They are virtual rock stars who command the attention of presidential candidates and media moguls. Through make-believe miracles, urban legends, counterfeit Christs, and twisted theological reasoning, they peddle an occult brand of metaphysics that continues to shipwreck the faith of millions around the globe: a€œGod cannot do anything in this earthly realm unless we give Him permission.a€ a€œKeep saying ita€”a€˜I have equality with Goda€™a€”talk yourself into it.a€ a€œBeing poor is a sin.a€ a€œThe Jews were not rejecting Jesus as Messiah; it was Jesus who was refusing to be the Messiah to the Jews!a€ a€œYou create your own world the same way God creates His. He speaks, and things happen; you speak, and they happen.a€ Christianity in Crisis: 21st Century exposes darkness to light, pointing us back to a Christianity centered in Christ. From the Preface: a€œHaving lost the ability to think biblically, postmodern Christians are being transformed from cultural change agents and initiators into cultural conformists and imitators. Pop culture beckons, and postmodern Christians have taken the bait. As a result, the biblical model of faith has given way to an increasingly bizarre array of fads and formulas.a€C.
