Bruce Barron’s The Health and Wealth Gospel. Fascinating reading written by one who is sympathetic with the movement yet alarmed by what he sees as abuses and excesses. While many will find Barron’s treatment of the prosperity theology movement too sympathetic in places, his work is well worth reading by the discerning reader. Many people today are led to trust in Jesus Christ to save them from disease, depression, financial difficulty, marital discord, and a host of other temporal dilemmas. Tragically, however, many of these have never trusted Him and Him alone to save them from their greatest problem, their sinfulness and resulting separation from God.
