Theological Response to Critics of the Lakeland Outpouring

The current revival in Lakeland, FL, being conducted by Todd Bentley, has received quite a bit of criticism from certain sectors of the Church. Dr. Gary S. Greig, is currently the senior editor of theology and acquisitions for the Regal Publishing Group, and former associate professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Regent University School of Divinity, has written a detailed 55-page response to ten of the most common objections, called A Theological Response to Criticism of the Lakeland Outpouring and Todd Bentley: BIBLICAL REASONS TO RECEIVE GOD’S GLORY AND GIVE IT AWAY IN POWER EVANGELISM (in PDF).

Dr. Greig received his Ph.D in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago in 1990. He is the editor, along with Kevin M. Springer, of The Kingdom and the Power: Are Healing and the Spiritual Gifts Use by Jesus and the Early Church Meant for the Church Today?, which includes contributions from J. I. Packer, Jeffrey Niehaus, Wayne Grudem, Stanley M. Burgess, David Lewis and John White.
