Great book for Seekers Dec 30, 2008
I cannot comment on the other review of this book whose author states that Mr.Bottomly is basically a liar. I don't know if he is being honest about his experience with Covenant Community or not but I did attend another church he pastored in Oklahoma City many years ago and thought that he was a wonderful, godly man and enjoyed his teaching every Sunday. I found this book very interesting and pretty well-written. It is in no way a theological argument for non-cessationism. It is rather an account of a man's personal journey from cessationism to charismaticism (sp?). If you're looking for a detailed argument for the charismata, look elsewhere. However, if you're someone struggling with your belief in cessationism, I would highly recommend this book, even if it's only to see how others have dealt with their own questions.
Truth is not in him May 5, 2008
Bottomly doesn't even tell the truth regarding HIMSELF, so don't believe the rest of his book. In his bio, he states he helped found Covenant Community Church, a church that had been around for several years by the time he was hired as its pastor. As a member of this church since it started, I can easily verify this.
