Exercising a Bible-Based Prophetic Ministry
We are all familiar with Bible teachers whose knowledge fails to translate into vision, action, or understanding. Conversely, there are teachers whose prophetic gift is considerable--but their grip on Scripture is weak. Christians are easily misled, becoming "prophet hunters rather than God chasers," as Rachel puts it. However, a good Bible teacher, honed by meditation on the Word to be alert to the Spirit's leading, is truly worth hearing. This balanced approach is a foundational element of Christian ministry.
"Rachel boils down years of mature experience to offer us a balanced, biblical, pastoral, practical, and often inspirational handbook on how to grow in handling both the 'taught' and the 'caught' Word of God. This is a real gem."
-Simon Ponsonby, Pastor of Theology, St Aldate's Oxford
"Rachel at her best . . . she rightly takes us back to the Bible as the starting point for all prophetic ministry."
-Stuart Bell, Senior Pastor, New Life Christian Centre, Lincoln
"Rachel Hickson has had a significant impact on my life and ministry. Her passion for the person of Jesus and the Holy Scriptures is simply contagious. I know the book you now hold has the potential to stir these same passions in your life."
-Judah Smith, Lead Pastor, The City Church, Seattle, WA
