Get closer to God Dec 17, 2007
I do recommend this book to anyone who want to get closer to God to read this book and not only once, but read it again and again. God bless.
Very nice view from a non-prophetic Christian Jun 24, 2007
I quite enjoyed this book, not that it gave great insight into moving in the Prophetic, but it gave great insight into the very real and present (physical and spiritual) dangers of being in the prophetic. The author, Mike Bickle, admits to being very non-prophetic, and as such he takes a very real stance on maintaining a proper balance of worship, teaching, leading, and prophetic ministering. I believe this is a MUST READ book for anyone who believes they have the gift of prophecy or for anyone who works with those who do.
Growing in the Pathetic Jan 12, 2007
Unfortunately, Mr Bickle's book is little more than unauthoritative ideas taught with authority. Many of his statements of truth begin with, "I belive that" and "I am convinced that" followed by teachings that cannot be proven in the Bible.
He lifts up Paul Cain as a prophet equal to Old Testament prophets. Hmm. Cain has claimed that Jesus rode in the car with him one day and in order to discourage his upcoming marriage, placed his hand on him and removed all sexual temptation from him for life. Of course, Cain would later fall into sexual sin. Old Testament prophets aren't what they used to be.
Bickle is the prophetic movement's damage control arm. He is there to do the PR when things go wrong. For example, in this book he relates that one time a prophecy happened where a man told another man he was to have a music ministry. Bickle says that guy blew the prophecy because what he really saw was musical notes surrounding the guy. He interpreted the prophecy wrong. Oh, if only God would stop being so unclear!
I could go on, but I don't want to take the time. If you are a believer, pick read ALMOST ANY book on Bible interpretation and learn to discern truth from falsehood. If only Bickle had done so as a young man, we wouldn't be subjected to such nonsense.

Mike Bickle is not just a great author...but he has sheparded a move of God. He is a great man of God with tremendous incite. He is also balanced and not overly emotional nor drawn to extremes.
I would recomend not only this book...but anything by him.
Insightful Feb 17, 2005
The author tells of his own journey away from "prophetic chaos" toward a clearer understanding of God's order. Out of this experience he conveys insights beneficial for the development of prophetic ministry in the church today.
