A Different Gospel
This study is an expanded and updated version of my master’s thesis, “The Kenyon Connection: A Theological and Historical Analysis of the Cultic Origins of the Faith Movement,” which was submitted to the faculty of the School of Theology at Oral Roberts University in 1982. Since that thesis was completed, much new historical information about the origins of the Faith movement has come to light, most of which has confirmed my original thesis concerning its “connection” to the metaphysical cults. The theological analysis demonstrating the cultic parallels between the Faith theology and metaphysics has been greatly expanded in this study and, I hope, clarified. I have endeavored to write for the church, both clergy and laity, and I have tried to make simplicity, not profundity, my guiding principle.
