Rooted - Banning Liebscher

The Hidden Places where God develops you. Over time we should develop deep roots in Chrsit, and when storms come in this life, we will still be standing by God's strength. Using the life of David, the author is describing how we must have roots befroe we can go into the world. The first notice that sent of warning bells was an endorsement by Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding, CA. Then in further research that the author was actually on staff at Bethel church for 18 years.
The author is the leader of Jesus Culture, that has branched off into music and church off shoots, and there are some Christians that are not aware of their dangerous practices.
While the concept of being rooted in God;s word is a good one, I con not recommend this book because of the dangerous practices of Bethel and Jesus Culture.
One example of a dangerous practice:http://bereanresearch.org/activating-the-kids-at-bethel-redding/
and another:http://pointingtojesus.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-dangerous-teachings-of-jesus.html?m=1
It is shocking to me that many others are accepting and inclusive of these practices in the name of unity, and rely more on felt experiences and emotion, rather than what the Bible teaches.
I have been provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.
