Concise, Scripture-Centered Guide Confronts the Dangers of the Prosperity Gospel

Many new believers have questions about what it means to live as a Christian in the context of a local church, and pastors are looking for resources to pass along to their congregations to help them think biblically about the Christian life. Church Questions is a series by 9Marks that seeks to provide Christians with sound and accessible biblical teaching by answering common questions about church life. Each booklet offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment.

This short booklet by pastor Sean DeMars addresses the dangers of the prosperity gospel. Writing from personal experience, he lays out the 4 core elements of this movement and answers questions such as Is the prosperity gospel biblical? and Does God promise me a prosperous life? This guide will help readers understand how the prosperity gospel twists Scripture and leads people astray, ultimately undermining the message of the true gospel.
