Mike Bickle, IHOP and Contemplative Prayer

Did you know that…

Much of the literature being sold through the International House of Prayer’s online FORERUNNER Bookstore indicates a contemplative influence. One such book being offered is Fire Within, written by Father Thomas Dubay. IHOP founder Mike Bickle states, “I want this book to be the manual for IHOP-KC.” [1]

That is high praise indeed from Mike Bickle. The full title of the book is Fire Within: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and the Gospel–On Prayer. Incredibly, Bickle’s “manual” is about Catholic, contemplative mystics! Also for sale on the website are books by and about St. John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, and even Madame Guyon.

    You believe Catholic monks were all mistics?

    Many were very dedicated warriors in the spirit and committed to prayer.

    What do you care what IHOP does?

    How do you rate in importance?

    Who made you King?

    Who cares what you think? I sure don’t.
