<title> ABSTRACT </title>A relatively recent report by Andrew Perriman from the UK Evangelical Alliance has brought some needed balance into the debate over the teaching and practice of the Word of Faith movement. Concerned that it has generally failed to receive a fair trial, Faith, Health and Prosperity seeks to understand and assess the faith movement as it presents itself today. Its hermeneutic and theology are thoroughly critiqued, and various concerns are raised about its ministry and ethics. Nevertheless, the report argues persuasively for a possible rapprochement between the Word of Faith and broader evangelical movements. Whilst the former is classified as 'heterodox' or 'suborthodox' and the absolutism of its doctrine of health and wealth is dismantled, the report concedes various weaknesses in the broader evangelical spectrum where it can learn from 'faith teaching', and the embryo of a more biblical theology of prosperity is conceived.
