A very good read from practical experience of success and mistakes - very real. Paul encourages us in the NT 'to desire the gift of prophecy' and therefore this is an excellent book to develope one of the grace gifts - Prophecy.

Helpful and Important 6 Sep 2000
By "pollopadreredux" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is enormously helpful. At first I sort of cringed and considered Mike Bickle to be hyper-analytical about the whole "prophecy thing." But after completing the book and coming to understand the extraordinary outpouring of the gift of prophecy at his church, I found his viewpoint and "hyper-analytical" approach to be a great gift and a crucial tool for keeping the proper focus (on the Creator) at his Kansas City church. What a blessing it is for others to have this very practical guidebook. For those who are "new" to the prophecy gift, I recommend Jack Deere's "Surprised by the Voice of God" for a more "passionate" picture. Then Bickle's book makes for a very nice and helpful "follow up" guide.

Steering the prophetic the right way ..! 9 Jun 2000
By Melvyn Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a prophetic package when unfold reveals the heart of Mike Bickle who longs to see the powerhouse of the prophetic movement balance between sound teaching and action application. For someone who does not profess to be prophetic, Mike owes a lot of his experiences to the surrounding osmosis from his prophetic company.
This book is basically an oasis of Mike's experience. The substance of the content is exceptionally rare as understanding the prophetic requires us to move beyond the corral of theology knowledge. It takes a good drill of application experiences to appreciate the positive effects and avoid the abuse of the prophetic. Through a host of honest trials and overt errors, the making of "Growing in the prophetic" is realized for our benefit.
By reading this book, you will find out that when teachings steep to the taste of high flying individuals, prophetic ministry will turn volatile and can potentially burst into a host of damaging effects. Mike Bickle is here to firm up the prophetic application based on truthful and biblical teaching.
One of the immediate requisition of the prophetic is the admission of strong kinship relationship and constant accountability. Such requirement is foundational and creates boundary of peace, joy and covering for those who operate in this calling. However when individuals choose to walk out of such privileged dimension, the light of God dims slowly, susceptibility to all kinds of weird and strange acts are bound to manifest and latch on them.
You will discover moving into the prophetic is actually a maturation process which can be measured by different levels of gifting. I appreciated the way Mike punctuated each teaching with life examples. Paul Cain, Bob Jones and others powerful prophetic figures are included as additives to his examples because of their reputed ministries and global recognitions.
I thank Mike for his honesty. It's people like him we can steer the prophetic ministry into great usage and reap powerful results that God intended it to be. I am sure Mike Bickle has more to say about the prophetic since this book was first released ...

A sobering review of the prophetic service in the church 26 Aug 1998
By xlts@online.no - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rarely have I read a book that leads me to describe it as sobering. Yet, Mike Bickle does more the deserve it. Just pointing out how to use the prophetic within the church - and how not to use it. Paul has given us a great rule, when saying that we shouldn't patronize the prophetic, but Mike Bickle puts the word into a very Biblical and easy to understand setting, so that anyone can understand what he is talking about. Since Bickle has been the pastor of a church where the prophetic has been allowed to grow for several years - with both good and bad sides to it, this book shows, as mentioned above, a very sober attitude. I will gladly recommend the book by all of my heart. PS! I've read the book in Norwegian..., and recommend it to Norwegian Readers as well

Excellent! 10 April 2012
By Lenar Nosugref - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Still in the process of reading but so far Mike Bickle gives straight answers. About five years ago I became aware of the prophetic life within me as the way God speaks to us in dreams and visions. The hard part was I had no one to help me to understand what to do with it all. I felt like a fool trying to find people in church to talk to about it, but the truth is, they didn't know any more than I did and some were afraid to even go there with me. Because of Mike Bickle's trial and error and relentless pursiut of God he has sound wisdom to share for people who just need to know and understand life in the Spirit. I believe this is a must read for ALL PASTORS so they know what to do when questions arrise in thier congregation.

ALL GOD CHILDREN WILL be blessed by this book.

Learning more of misistry gifts 5 April 2000
By "isblessed" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was an awsome book that helped me to see not only how to use the gift of prophescy but it helped me to understand to role of a pastor and the role of the prophet. We need to understand that God gives the gifts and that they need to be used for Him, but this book helps you to understand how to walk in the gifting that God has given you and allow the pastor to walk in his gifting, and to work together for God and His will.
