Reviews - What do our customers think?
Prejudice and theology  Sep 4, 2007
Walter Chantry is a brilliant and thoughtful scholar and an able workman of Scripture. I have been greatly inspired and blessed by his other books, like Today's Gospel and Shadow of the Cross. Unfortunately I was disappointed by Signs of the Apostles and believe the author simply finds it hard to get beyond his cessationist presuppositions which, in my estimation, are largely based on prejudice. As a graduate of a Reformed theological institution, I am grateful for the sound critique that Reformed Presbyterians and Baptists have provided with respect to the errors of the "second experience baptism in the Holy Spirit" teaching of Pentecostalism. However it seems to me that these same folks have little biblical basis to negate the ongoing operation of the particular gifts of the Holy Spirit that they wish to deny. While God is sovereign and it is dangerously wrong to equate the church today with the apostolic era, these facts do not mitigate against the operation of the Holy Spirit's gifts in the church today. Well meaning and godly pastor-scholars like Chantry want to protect Sola Scriptura, the standard of evangelical Protestantism, and rightly so. But they demonize Pentecostalists and charismatics and negate the operation of these gifts without the strong exegetical basis that they apply to the doctrines of grace and other core theological issues. I have never been persuaded by any cessationist argument because they are all essentially biased and presumptuous. Chantry loses his balance and reasonable handling of Scripture because he's intent, as are so many Reformed Baptists, in annihilating the Pentecostal/charismatic movement. This is little more than a quixotic adventure, since Pentecostalism will likely carry the banner of Protestantism into the 21st century with the greatest success. Rather than bashing this movement out of prejudice (and perhaps jealousy), what is rather needed is a sound exegetical treatment to guide and correct Pentecostalists within the bounds of Scripture. The cessationist viewpoint is weak and shabby, and it is disappointing when godly, brilliant writers cling to it as if it were on par with the doctrines of grace.
If you want facts, Chantry has them!  Oct 20, 2001
Without question, this is the most historically, exegetically accurate treatment of the ministry of the Apostles and their unique validating gifts that I have ever read. In a short, concise manner, Chantry lays out God's plan for the use of the miraculous gifts during the early church age. He carefully shows how I Corinthians 14:30: "Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues," plays itself out with I Corinthians 13:8: "...but where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled..." It's a rational, cogent, well-supported handling of Biblical truth in a non-emotional, straight-forward manner. He interprets human experience in the light of Biblical truth; he does not interpret Holy Scripture in the light of human experience. As Saint Peter beautifully put it, "We now have a more sure word of prophecy (i.e. more certain than mere human experience)..." If you are of the Charismatic persuasion, do not buy this book. Chantry's devastating Biblical logic will leave you with only your fallible human experience to cling to for support of your position. A positively brilliant piece of exegesis. If you're looking for truth, you can find it here in spades. Dollar for dollar, one of the best books I have purchased.
Don't confuse me with the facts...  Jul 25, 2001
If you are looking for a biblically, theologically and historically sound treatment of apostleship--as I was--don't waste your time and money on "Signs of the Apostles." It's not that Chantry has nothing worthwhile to say: he actually includes some useful discussion about the miraculous in the New Testament. However, he is a convinced cessationist; and though he is aware of the many claims from Pentecostals and charismatics to the contrary, he regards all contemporary experience of spiritual gifts as delusion or deception. On page 37, for example, he states categorically, "All modern prophecy is spurious! God's truth has come to us in a fixed and finished objective revelation. We must not accept the new 'revelations' of neo-pentecostalism." Chantry claims to have a much higher regard for Scripture as God's inspired and authoritative word than do Pentecostals and charismatics; but Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 14:30 couldn't be clearer: "Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues." Chantry says those who seek to hear or receive personal revelation or gifting from the Spirit of God are insulting God by denying the "all-sufficiency" of the Scriptures. Chantry needs to be reminded that "all-sufficiency" is an extra-biblical claim, not unlike, for example, the bodily assumption of Mary. This book is not about "signs" or "apostles." It is a one-sided diatribe which impugns every biblical, theological, historical--and personal--reality which doesn't support the author's preconceptions.
