Pouring Holy Water on Strange Fire: A Critique of John MacArthur’s Strange Fire and Charismatic Chaos

By Frank Viola

Pouring Holy Water on Strange Fire


In October 2013, MacArthur released a new book entitled Strange Fire (Thomas Nelson, 2013). After comparing the two books (Charismatic Chaos and Strange Fire), the arguments in MacArthur's earlier book are simply rehashed in the newer volume. Strange Fire simply adds more contemporary examples and ratchets up the vitriolic rhetoric.

Strange Fire, then, is the same dance with a newer tune. This critique is a response to both Strange Fire and Charismatic Chaos.
