Item Description...
In Pulpit Crimes, James White brings his clarity to the issue of the vague and ambiguous preaching. He addresses the crimes that are being committed and seeks to revive courage and committed to the truth. Timely reading, Pulpit Crimes is must reading for the homiletics student and the seasoned preacher.

Publishers Description
James R. White, author of THE GOD WHO JUSTIFIES, and numerous other titles turns his attention to the Christian Pulpit in this hard-hitting book. It is the contention of the author that the pulpit in the average church is a place in which crimes are committed every week. White writes with a desire to expose false teaching but also seek to write in a way that will encourage those who are seeking to be faithful to God's Word each week. This is a must read for all who are called to stand behind the pulpit, as well as those who are called to sit each week and listen.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not Exhaustive but still good read...  Mar 20, 2007
This book reminded me a lot of the style that was done in Steve Lawson's book, Made in Our Image. Meaning, James White hits a lot of topics without going into a lot of depth. Which is fine, because that was his intent, just don't think you are going to get a thorough look at each "Pulpit Crime" in this book.

James White hits topics such as expository preaching, worship music, seeker churches, pluralism, homosexuality, mishandling of the ordinances, women "pastors" and others. I really enjoyed White's discussion on those who water down the Gospel to being nothing more than "a" plan instead of "the" plan of salvation. He really makes sure the reader understands the danger of not preaching the absolute truth of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The one topic that he covered that I really enjoyed was his chapter on, "Felonious Eisegesis." It went through the dangers of not only the word faith movement, but also those traditions that are held so close to the vest by a lot of us in our denominations or doctrine. He did a great job of allowing the reader to understand that we all have "traditions" that can sometimes guide our exegesis of Scripture. When looking at a sub-heading called, "Tradition Trafficking," you would expect that to be a chapter about the Roman Catholic church, but the entire part of this chapter was devoted to our protestant traditions allowing our interpretation of Scripture. I found this very interesting and he used the story of him and Dave Hunt to show his arguments for his case.

The one thing that I did not like at first, but understood by the end, is that James White does not "name names." He does this so that the book doesn't become "dated" because of the names mentioned. We have seen this happen with MacArthur's "Charismatic Chaos" when in actuality the book is very much for today, but gets little mention because it is "dated because of those mentioned." I mentioned above, Dave Hunt, but James White does not name his name but I am very familiar with his discussions in the past so I was able to pick up the "unmentioned person" that Dr. White was talking about.

Again, very good book as a "fly-by" on a lot of topics. If you would like an in depth book on the exegesis of preaching itself, I would recommend Lawson's "Famine in the Land" instead. But, that was not this books intent and for that I can definitely recommend and probably will read again sometime in the future.
People in glass houses  Feb 13, 2007
Having attending Mr Whites services and having read the book(some good points). Mr White should do some self examination before throwing stones. His criminality in disgracing scripture will one day confront him.
Outstanding Book!  Jan 27, 2007
Dr. White has penned an outstanding work with Pulpit Crimes. He plainly discusses many of the issues that plague the western church. Dr. White does so in a loving manner, effectively rebuking those guilty of the crimes with Scripture as we are called to do. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who sees the professing Christian church as a rainbow of beliefs and positions. There is a reason for that, and as Mr. White correctly points out, it is due to a low view of Scripture.

It's a quick read (about 150 pages), and Mr. White's style, as with his other books is one that is entertaining, and pleasing to read. He explains any technical terms he utilizes, which always makes things easier.

A great book of warning for new Christians, and a source of tremendous insight to those who look at the church, either from the inside or out, and wonder what is going on with orthodoxy.
This will make you think.  Jan 16, 2007
This is the first book of this authors that I have read. I really enjoyed the book. I appreciate the author's candor about the abuses in churches right now. This book shows how different the church is from what God intended it to be according to His word. This would be a good read for all Christians. As a Christian, we should be more interested in pleasing God than in pleasing man. This book makes that point plainly.
Could've been called Pulpit Crimes controversy  Jan 4, 2007
James R White THD is a professor at couple seminaries,
one being Columbia Evangelical Seminary. Author of a number of books
and a very well skilled and train debater for the cause of Christ and
his church. James R. White THD has authored many books on controversy like
Roman Catholicism, Mormonism , Jehovah Witnesses, King James Only and others
issues within the Christians Church like Calvinism.

James R White having debated over 50 debates over the few decades and calling
things like they are wither it's a false teaching or a misrepresentation of
God's truth, he will call it and name names.

In this book called PULPIT CRIMES I think Dr. White use Godly wisdom and
good judgement in writing. He makes mention that in the begining of the book
he was not going to name names not because he was scared or anything like that
but because while that crimes have been committed in the past and will
probably will in the future. This book will not be helpful to a future
generation because they would have to understand the context of the preachers
today. So rather then write a timely book ( which this book is) he wrote a
book that is time less.

He talks bout the crimes that the common pastor makes from the pulpit. From
Mega churches to Heretics. He mentions how some people twist the scriptures,
their denial of Sola Scriptura. Since James didn't name names, I will try to
do my best to call out those he use in the book. Joel Osteen was one of them
, Dave Hunt was one of them has well, T. D. Jakes, and I think there was
something about Benny Hinn. His book addressed the issue of Plurality of elders
, women in the pulpit, Mega churhces, Lord's supper and baptism and a lot of
other things as well.. this was such a great book. I think this book would be a
good book about whow not to preach...If James White name this book called
this book a controversy , he could've been known as a controversy author.

Just a great and timly and timelss book.

Good job Dr. White
