Book by Andrew Wommack

Andrew Wommack is a popular speaker and author. I recently read his book, Spirit, Soul and Body. He not only affirms this model of how we are made (1 Thess. 5:23), but testifies to the importance of this perspective in his life and ministry. Wommack recalls a time of intensive Bible study and prayer that brought him to pivotal spiritual life discoveries.

“This understanding of spirit, soul, and body was one of the first revelations I received through studying the Bible. It not only alleviated the frustration and confusion I had, but has served as a foundation for almost everything the Lord has shown me since. These important truths freed me from the bondage of much wrong thinking and enabled me to consistently experience God’s supernatural power. Personally, I cannot comprehend how anyone can truly prosper in their relationship with God apart from understanding this basic revelation” (preface).

In 145 pages the author explains and applies this understanding of man as spirit, soul and body and our new identity in Christ to salvation, sanctification, and service. It is a thorough presentation given at a popular (not academic) level.

Wommack’s Pentecostal theology is expressed at times. He also concludes that union with Christ guarantees physical healing and prosperity in this life if claimed by faith. However, we (at Grace Fellowship Int’l) would not agree with these conclusions. See:
