DEREK PRINCE DIES - JUST DAYS AFTER HAGIN World-renowned Bible teacher and author Derek Prince has just died on Sept 23 in Jerusalem aged 88 years. Derek Prince was one of the most prominent leaders of the Charismatic movement and his teaching and radio ministry spanned half the globe. This wonderful man of God died in his sleep of heart-failure following a long period of declining health. Prince wrote more than 45 books, including 'Shaping the World Through Prayer and Fasting'. He was a real father of the faith to an entire generation. A true giant has passed away. The Christian world will not be quite the same without him. Meanwhile, just days before, another world-renowned speaker, author and prophet, Kenneth E. Hagin, died after nearly 70 years of ministry. He passed away on September 19 aged 86 years. God had miraculously healed Hagin of a deformed heart and an incurable blood disease at the age of 17, and he was raised from a deathbed in 1934 by the revelation of faith in God's Word. Known as the "father of the modern faith movement," Hagin operated as a prophet a great deal in his earlier years, later becoming more well-known as a healing teacher and preacher - with a particular emphasis on Faith. Whatever your feelings about his Faith message, there can be no denying that Kenneth Hagin was a giant figure in the modern church, with massive impact around the world. It surely has to be significant that two of these giant leaders of the Charismatic generation have passed away within just a few days of one another? These were two of the most prominent Christian leaders of the past half-century. The church will certainly not be the same without them.
