Very often, authentic prophets carry a message that is not popular, even to the point of being a lone dissenting voice among a chorus of seemingly credible proclamations. Jeremiah Johnson and R. Loren Sandford have chosen a fascinating example in Micaiah to illustrate the tensions in prophetic community, and ultimately to illustrate the differences between true prophets and false ones. The rediscovery of God’s purposes in contemporary prophecy, which began in the '50s, has recently gained and then lost momentum. Efforts to re-establish the function of the prophet in the modern church have yielded mixed results. This book examines some of the problems with the modern prophetic movement, and offers suggestions about how we can bring reformation to the culture in the church which supports this very important ministry function.
