In the opening days of the 20th century, Pentecostalism introduced a new movement which today is broadly called Charismatic Christianity. Charismatics typically claim that today’s church can exercise all the miraculous gifts that Christ gave His church during the Apostolic Age starting on the day of Pentecost (e.g., apostleship, prophecy, tongues, miracles, etc.). Is this true? Is God really giving direct prophetic messages to people today? Every Christian gets faced with these Charismatic claims, but oftentimes the dilemma is “How can I answer them?

In The Cessation Of The Prophetic Gifts Dr. Dane provides a thorough treatment of these questions with a three-fold analysis of the subject. The first level of analysis comes from a detailed exegetical explanation of 1 Corinthians 13:8-13, the key text of the Bible that predicts a cessation of the prophetic gifts. The second level of treatment revolves around the broader theological issues that support cessationism. The third level of treatment includes a broad survey of the way that church history and present-day experience support the cessationist position that these prophetic gifts ended with the apostolic age and have not returned, as claimed by the Charismatics.
