This extra-ordinary book goes to great lengths to teach what the Gospel is NOT and what the gospel IS. The editor, Michael Horton, apart from making significant contributions of his own, has gathered together contributors of considerable standing in the literary and Christian worlds. Their combined purpose is the exposing of the teachings of certain television evangelists with worldwide audiences numbering many millions.
Until many of them became embroiled in scandal, television preachers had been above reproach in the eyes of millions of viewers. Their followers assumed them to be learned, enlightened, and creditable ministers of the gospel. But the fall of several popular televangelists has forced the church to take a closer look at the teachings of her more visable preachers.
The Agony of Deceit is an in-depth, carefully documented analysis os television evangelism. This collection of fourteen essays boasts an impressive list of contributors including R.C. Sproul, Walter Martin, Art Lindsley, and C. Everett Koop. Though they represent several denominations, all the contributors agree that the most significant problem plaguing televangelism is not moral or ethical decline but a gross deficiency of its doctrinal foundations. In short, heresy.
