Product description

Product Description

Much has been written on the Jezebel spirit as it applies to individuals but what if a church builds its entire doctrine on it? This church has its own "trinity." It sells people the promise of receiving tremendous financial wealth, supernatural power and miracles. It is self-centered and not Christ-centered.
The Church of Jezebel, Hijacking the Gospel is a Christian suspense novel depicting the cult and counterfeit side of some churches and televangelists. This book unveils some false doctrines and manipulative techniques that often result in spiritual abuse, misplaced faith, and spiritual pride.
This Jezebel church has four major doctrines: 1) God needs us as much as we need Him, 2) by faith you will command both blessings and curses, 3) by faith your divine seed will grow to become as God, and 4) its members will have dominion and power over the entire earth.
The Church of Jezebel not only exposes spiritual/religious pride, false doctrines and spiritual abuse among its leaders but also enlightens readers through Scriptures from the Bible. The main character of the story is Christina, an eighteen-year-old who is excited about being admitted to Bible college. Although she is easily awed by the charismatic doctrinal and prophetic messages, there is an unmistakable sense of foreboding from the first page. Christina's college roommate is dating the pastor's son and becomes pregnant. Weeks later the Bible college announces that Christina's roommate committed suicide but a detective assigned to the death is convinced it was murder.
The gripping and gritty novel travels to Haiti on a missions' trip, where nothing is what it appears, and concludes with a surprise ending that shakes the highest levels of this mega-church, Bible college and Christian media empire.
The Church of Jezebel cites appropriate Scripture and examines the Jezebel spirit, false prophets, word-faith doctrine, the apostate church, faith healers, seed-faith giving, Christ-consciousness and other beliefs that are sold today by many popular televangelists and churches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend! Outstanding book! 11 July 2012
By Roberta - Published on Amazon.com

This book is a fast read and incredibly insightful. It shows an apostate and toxic church that merely uses the name of Jesus, manipulates Scripture, renders self-serving prophesies and employs modern technology to manufacture "signs and wonders." The Church of Jezebel describes how the Gospel is being hijacked, especially when members and viewers are urged to open their wallets and purses to give, give, give for the sole purpose of receiving, receiving, receiving. Sadly, this book reflects many popular televangelists today and in general, a narcissistic society. Although this novel is a tad expensive, it is worth the read. My favorite characters are the pastor's wife, the church prophet and detective Preston.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! 7 January 2011
By Janet Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is incredibly insightful. The author blends apologetics with a suspenseful story-line, perhaps creating a new genre of Christian fiction. The Church of Jezebel takes on some controversial issues such as faith-healing, seed faith giving, and most importantly, misplaced faith. I highly recommend this book and believe it should be discussed at Bible studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great first novel by Derik Girdwood 8 February 2010
By Brandon M. Standing - Published on Amazon.com
Derik Girdwood's first novel, The Church of Jezebel, speaks to the disconnections and the horrors that are found in many churches that are rife with blatant hypocrisy and/or manipulation of the word of God. Through the eyes of Christina(CHRISTina), an eighteen year old college student, we witness the derailing of a church whose impressive facade has an underbelly that is chilling to the bone. Girdwood weaves a compelling tale, showing how men and women in authority, people who use God as a figure for personal gain, can have devastating itineraries that are opposite to what meets the eye. This novel keeps you reading because even though you may not like what you see, the "truth", however ugly it might be, is worth uncovering. If you have often wondered how a church gains so much momentum and fame, do yourself a favor and read this novel to see how the old adage "you got to break some eggs to make an omelet" really fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine Christian novel, highly recommended 9 July 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Faith has a unique way of working in helping people find the truth. "The Church of Jezebel: Hijacking the Gospel" tells the story of Christina, a young woman who is faced with finding the truth regarding the death of her friend Becky. A whirlwind journey brings her to the truth and to a greater place in faith. Lined with scripture and a powerful message, "The Church of Jezebel" is a fine Christian novel, highly recommended.
