We understand your desire to continue dialogue about the things we have already discussed with you and at considerable length elsewhere. We believe we have already had the conversation you ask for yet again. At this point we think it would be more fruitful to concentrate on interaction with key New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) figures that we identify in our book, including especially Bill Johnson, Ché Ahn, and Rick Joyner.
Thank you for acknowledging that critics of NAR vary in their approaches and disagreements. You regard some as “hyper-critics” and you call on us to separate ourselves from them. As you know, we bear no responsibility for how others define or respond to NAR. We’re glad that others have turned to our research in their own efforts to understand and respond. And we’re happy to have all of our readers make what they will of the claims and evidence we present. Since you have expressed appreciation for our efforts and respect for our good intentions, you might encourage your own audience to read our book A New Apostolic Reformation?: A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement.
Of course, we counsel both critics and NAR-friendlies to exercise grace in combination with close study of Scripture and careful reasoning. (On pages xiv-xvi of the preface to our book, we outline 15 specific criteria for “presenting a fair and balanced treatment of NAR.”)
