Yes, the prosperity gospel is still alive and well. Jones and Woodbridge show that in our economically tough times, the prosperity gospel appeals to even more people. To counter this false message, they give helpful, Biblical information. First, they lay out the foundation, teachings, and errors of the prosperity gospel (the authors are not afraid to identify those who promote this error), followed by the Biblical teaching on suffering, wealth, poverty, and giving. After concluding with instruments for discerning one’s openness to the prosperity gospel, ministering to others concerning the truth, and answering objections, the authors list resources for further study and provide Scripture and subject indexes.
