We live in an age of activism, of challenge, when the doors of the future swing wide, beckoning men of vision. Any church is safe in the hands of people who possess a prophetic vision and a historian's wisdom. Not only must one peer steadily into the future, but always there must be a strong and steady appreciation for the foundations laid by the founders in the yesterdays. Every Nazarene will do well to read again, prayerfully, the story of the beginning days, of the heroism, of the unwhimpering sacrifice, of the bearing and forbearing, of the long hours of agony and prayer. Meet the men and women who watched by the bedside of our struggling, embattled infant church. This is designed to be used as a text. It is thoroughly documented, utterly dependable, warmly interpretive.
The first in a 2-volume set, this volume examines the biblical foundation for the doctrine and illuminates several key passages. Cloth.
Timothy L. Smith, author and scholar, wrote the definitive account of the Church of the Nazarene’s formative years in Called unto Holiness, Vol. 1. He has also co-authored The Promise of the Spirit, a historical biography of Charles G. Finney.
