From the outset, the implications of this book are terrifying. In this thorough, and sometimes disquieting, investigation of the biblical predictions, the Great Apostasy emerges, not as a foreboding future event, but as the very essence of today's postmodern Church.
Like tares in the wheat field, false adherents are presently growing up alongside true believers. But how will we know them? What are the distinguishing qualities of these apostate confessors?
This is where Steve Gallagher is at his best. By mining the treasure-laden writings of past centuries and carefully examining the sacred Scriptures, he exposes the prevailing self-centeredness, widespread sensuality, and rebellion to authority that epitomizes this false part of the Body.
Be prepared for your perspective of the End Times Church to be forever changed.
“The audacity of Steve Gallagher to challenge the status quo of modern-day Christianity! Leave us alone! We enjoy our sin and selfish ways. Every page of this book cries out the question: ‘What evidence do I have that I am a child of God?’”
David Ravenhill Author and Itinerant Teacher
“Excellent. It is strong yet very scriptural and points to solutions. It lays an excellent foundation as to the roots of apostasy.”
Don Wilkerson Teen Challenge International
“Thousands of new Christian books are published every year. Many are good, this one is excellent.”
Steve Hill Evangelist
“Christians are being deceived by a seductive, fashionable Christianity of cheap grace and easy believism. Steve Gallagher’s book is reminiscent of Charles Finney’s messages on revival.”
Dennis Lindsay Christ for the Nations
“It is rare indeed to hear such strong truth expressed with such great love. I picked up the manuscript to take a preliminary glance at it and found that I couldn’t put it down. Your riveting account of the cold state of the Church kept me wanting more and more of God with each chapter. I am convinced that you have expressed the very heart of God for this season.”
Jim Corbett Author of A White Stone
“Anything apart from a deep work of repentance in my heart will burn like dry grass. Heed this challenging message from Standing Firm through the Great Apostasy; without this piece you’re just playing an empty religious game.”
James MacDonald Walk in the Word Radio Program
“It is rare in this day of shallow doctrine and worldliness to find someone with the courage to cry out, ‘Enough!’ With a heart like the prophets of old, Steve Gallagher calls God’s people to godly sorrow, heart-felt repentance and renewed purity. Churches and individuals who are seeking a closer walk with God will find this book convicting and yet uplifting. I dare you to read it!”
Ed Bulkley Walk Through the Word Radio Program
“Standing Firm through the Great Apostasy is very powerful and biblical. There are so many ‘parrot’ voices today - repeating what others say and teach. Steve’s books are original and anointed. I truly feel that Steve Gallagher is a John the Baptist, calling out to today’s church, as a voice crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord!’”
Randy Jones President, Word of Truth Ministries
“Once again Steve Gallagher has written a book which touches a nerve in the life of the church here in America. ‘Standing Firm through the GREAT APOSTASY’ forces the reader to inspect his commitment to Christ and ask himself, ‘Do I really know Jesus?’ I highly recommend it.”
