How can we know a teaching, practice, or supernatural manifestation is from God? This book provides sound principles for discerning truth, error, and mixture from the Bible our Gold Standard! Discerning leaders affirm:

“We live in a crazy world where Christians lack basic grounding in God’s Word. The result is a shallow version of Christianity that is a mile wide and an inch deep. We are tossed by winds of doctrine. We are rootless and unstable. We chase social media “prophets” and “super
apostles” who can wow crowds with charisma but have no character. That is why this book had to be written. I am grateful that Paul King had the courage to write it.”

–Lee Grady, Mordecai Project, former editor of Charisma magazine

“One of the greatest privileges of my life was serving as a leader in the Brownsville Revival, and to this day, more than 20 years later, I meet people who were saved and transformed during this powerful move of God. Yet we must have something even greater today if our nation is to be changed. How, then, do we pursue revival without falling into deception? How can we distinguish between true and false moves of the Spirit? Paul King gives much food for thought and many practical guidelines to help us prepare for — and embrace — the next great outpouring. May the Lord hasten it in our day!”

–Dr. Michael L. Brown, Ph.D., President, FIRE School of Ministry, host of the Line of Fire broadcast.

“Reacting against Enlightenment anti-supernaturalism, some today lust for anything paranormal, and even some Christians pursue wonders more than the Wonderful Counselor. Reacting in turn, some throw out the baby with the bathwater and dismiss God’s miracles or speaking today. The mandatory biblical solution, however, is discernment. In this book richly informed by careful scholarship and the voices of spiritual leaders of the past, Paul King summons us to this desperately needed task.”

–Craig S. Keener, Ph.D. F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

“Jesus and New Testament writers predict an onslaught of deception in the last days. Dr. Paul King’s latest book is, therefore, on time and on target.  Is it of God? will help the contemporary believer negotiate his/her way through the multiple voices claiming truth in our post-modern world.”

–Dr. Eddie L. Hyatt, America Reawakening, Grapevine, TX

“Thank you Dr. King, for your expertise, as a theologian, a pastor, a professor,  an author, and a wise discerning seeker. Thank you for this thoroughly researched, insightful, and much needed comprehensive book on “Discernment.” Your emphasis on balance in all areas, theologically, spiritually, and the “world, the flesh, and the devil” is excellent, thought provoking, inspired, and refreshing. This book will be enlightening for all, as it is always based on God’s Word and it is full of wisdom and challenge. It is a much needed resource in this present culture of confusion, fear, and New Age proliferation. It is clearly written so that we, as believers  will seek the Lord Jesus Christ first as our King of Kings, and  at the same time remain open with  wise discernment to understand and to experience the power and the gifts  of the Holy Spirit in our lives. BRAVO!”
