Here is a seven-minute video taped recently at Asbury Seminary when Dr. Frank Macchia was there to give the Ryan Lectures, featuring him talking about the “prosperity Gospel.” It’s part of the “seven minute seminary” series put out by the Seedbed ministry.
Dr. Macchia is one of my favorite Pentecostal/Charismatic theologians, who I had the honor of meeting back in 2008 when Steve Studebaker and I planned, and hosted, McMaster Divinity College’s inaugural Pentecostal Forum, of which Dr. Macchia was a presenter. The papers were later published under the title, Defining Issues in Pentecostalism: Classical and Emergent, which I highly recommend.
Here is the video for your reflection. As stated in the clip, may it be the beginning of a much needed conversation.
