AUDIOS: The Disease of the Health and Wealth Gospels by Gordan D. Fee

gordon feeI have not yet had a chance to but and read this booklet yet but have heard good things about it years. So I was very happy to find and be able to listen to these two audios from Fee on the topic. Here is a review of the booklet from, then some biographical info on Mr. Fee and the click-able links to the two audios below.

“This is a tremendous little book. Gordon Fee is a world-class New Testament scholar and a Pentecostal. He discusses the “theology” of the health and wealth teachers and preachers and how they take Scripture out of context. With all the imbalances and biblical distortions going on in the Pentecostal/charismatic scene today, Dr. Fee’s book is refreshing and much-needed. Don’t miss this one!”

Gordon D. Fee (b. 1934) is a New Testament scholar and Professor Emeritus at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada. He received BA and MA degrees from Seattle Pacific University and was ordained in the Assemblies of God church in 1959. Fee earned his doctorate from the University of Southern California in 1966.

Richard Hays writes, ‘Fee’s book is the most comprehensive treatment available of Paul’s understanding of the Holy Spirit, a topic that has rarely received sufficient attention in studies of Pauline theology… Fee emphasizes insistently that the Holy Spirit must be experienced as a living presence within the church. That message is both faithful to Paul and urgent for the community of faith in our time.’ – Listening to the Spirit in the Text ISBN 0802847579Getting the Word Across: Speech Communication for Pastors and Lay Leaders (co-authored with G.
