White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

The New (Old) Apostolic Reformation

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing movements “within or on the periphery of American Christianity.” Join Michael Horton, Bob Hiller, Walter Strickland, and Justin Holcomb as they discuss where this contemporary movement came from, what its tenets of dominionism, new apostles, and direct revelation are, why its teachings are so prominent in Contemporary Christian Music, and how they are connected to the old, esoteric tradition of enthusiasm.
