Publishers Description Biblical prophets called God's people to clear spiritual vision and holy living. The need for holiness is as urgent for today's Church as it was for the Old Testament Jews. This reprint of a classic book by the late T. Austin Sparks, a British pastor, paints a fresh picture of the prophet and challenges the Body of Christ to once again proclaim God's presence among the nations of the world

Reviews - What do customers think about Prophetic Ministry?
Prophet? Jan 24, 2007
T. Austin Sparks reminds the prophet that his person and his message can't be separated. A true prophet does not change his message for fear of job security or the judgment of men. A true prophet "restores" and "reminds" the church of God's standard. If you find yourself teaching and preaching one unpopular BIBLICAL message after another... or if you find a lot in common with Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, etc... you might be a prophet. This book will encourage you to press on. I do believe the book starts off stronger than it finishes.
Understand the Prophetic Nov 30, 2006
I have been tremendously blessed through reading this book. Austin-Sparks undertakes to teach us concerning the Kingdom of God, and the importance of prophetic function in it. He teaches not so much on the predictive element of the prophetic, but concentrates on the aim and drive of a prophetic person, what makes them tick.
Without prophetic people, the church slips away from God's purpose for it. In this sense, Sparks provokes believer's to live prophetically, understanding the call on the Church and tenaciously holding on until she comes "unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." I'm convinced that if you read "Prophetic Ministry" with an open heart, you will be thoroughly blessed.
Great Nov 9, 2006
For Christians searching for truth outside the Religious Box. This book is a light they need to use. It really explains what a prophet is in our modern day society and like the OT prophets. You will not be accepted nor understood by the people in their comfortable Religious Box. But to Seekers of Intimacy with their Heavenly Father this book is a real way to learn to look up instead of what the Religious Box leaders want you to do; which is look at them.
Essential Reading Oct 12, 2004
Sparks writes as a man with authority. His cry is to know Christ and walk by the Holy Spirit, not the letter of the law. A must for the Prophetic Person.
Lack of Focus Aug 18, 2003
This book starts off rather strong regarding the prophetic ministry, but only for a little bit. About half way through, the book veers off course, and by the end of the book, I believe it almost completely shipwrecks, with very little left to salvage. The end of the book seems to become more dedicated to some odd flavor of dispensationalism, and one almost forgets they are reading a book about prophetic ministry. I was expecting much more from Sparks.
