The publisher of Taming the Tiger is withdrawing the book and relevant resources from sale.
Authentic Media made the decision after an inquiry into evangelist and founding director of Avanti Ministries Tony Anthony concluded that parts of his book, which claims to tell his story, are fake.
A statement from Authentic Media said:
"Last year, Authentic Media was made aware of the allegations against Tony Anthony, and was presented with new information that challenged his story, as told in Taming the Tiger.
"In discussion with Avanti, Tony Anthony's ministry, Authentic Media insisted that an external and independent review be held.
"In response, Avanti invited the Evangelical Alliance to hold an inquiry into Tony's story. This inquiry has now been completed, and has concluded that sections of the book are not true.
"Tony, however strongly defends his story - though he acknowledges that the recent information that he has received about his early life requires him to update and clarify his story. As a consequence, Authentic Media is withdrawing from sale, with immediate effect, the following titles: Taming the Tiger; Cry of the Tiger, and Taming the Tiger DVD
"Our prayer in this difficult situation has been for truth, clarity and grace.
"Many people have come to faith through Tony's testimony and the ministry of Avanti, and we pray their relationship with God will continue grow and deepen.
"We also pray for Tony, his family and Avanti Ministries."
Taming the Tiger has sold more than 1.5 million copies in 25 countries. Premier has contacted Tony Anthony and is awaiting a response.
