On 4/14 Dan Barnes wrote: I recently finished Strange Fire by MacArthur, and I learned a lot. He goes through a lot of history and I learned about a denomination and a movement that I have never really been a part of. So, as a Baptist, as a non-Charismatic I opened MacArthur's book thinking I would probably agree with most ... What God Told Me About Strange Fire by John MacArthur

On 4/13 Melissa Williamson wrote: John MacArthur's book, Strange Fire, explores a scriptural understanding of the Holy Spirit. From the beginning of the church in Acts there has been confusion, misconceptions, and outright lies taught concerning who the Holy Spirit is and how He operates in our lives.

On 2/23 Ben House wrote: I think the book as a whole would have been better if the focus, if the bulk of the book, had been expositions on the work of the Holy Spirit.

He certainly knows the Bible, and can quote chapter and verse on most any subject. I was interested to see what Mr. MacArthur might have to say about the Holy Spirit. ...

On 1/25 PJ wrote: I honestly thought this book would ignite something within me. My Pastor has talked about things like false worship and “showmanship” (my words) many times and how dangerous it is.

On 1/23 DanielofAZ wrote: So while I believe that MacArthur goes too far in trying to make the Bible teach cessationism, I appreciate what he's done in questioning the character of contemporary charismatic churches.
