Preachers of a Different Gospel

A Pilgrim's Reflections on Contemporary Trends in Christianity

£10.99

“Name it and claim it!”
“Just have faith!”
“Give and you will get!”

Catchphrases like this have convinced many Christians that trusting in God will bring health and wealth. But the gospel does not promise prosperity without pain or salvation without sanctification. Femi Adeleye draws on his wide-ranging experience as he examines the appeal and peril of this new gospel of prosperity that has made deep inroads in Africa, as well as in the West.
