John MacArthur is a classic evangelical and has a strong presence in the pulpit, which makes him familiar with preachers everywhere.
MacArthur has authored numerous books, most of which are classics that will make reverberations for generations to come. His newest text, Strange Fire, is a book emphasizing the Holy Spirit and the implications along with the Holy Spirit.
This book hasn’t been out on the shelves for very long, but it is causing quite a stir amongst evangelicals and charismatics. MacArthur addresses gifts and signs in this text and is directly opposed to both still existing. Therefore, his opposition has also risen up because of this stirring attack on gifts & signs.
MacArthur is a man of strong conviction and that conviction often bubbles over into media and culture, which isn’t a bad thing. But MacArthur often comes across as the ONLY person who knows what’s what and therefore deeming all others as incorrect in their theology.
This book is most-likely his strongest stance against something and you’ll find that quite evident from the beginning to the end…which is where he warns other evangelicals to tread lightly on the implications of the Holy Spirit.
