Spirit and Power is the classic expression of Pentecostal theology for a movement now come of age.From the groundswell of Azusa Street more than a century ago, Pentecostalism has spread its Holy Spirit fire across the globe. Today, the opposition of earlier years has given way to mutually profitable dialogue between Pentecostals and Evangelicals. In the process, we have found ourselves challenged as Spirit-filled Christians to ground ourselves more deeply in a sound Pentecostal theology.
Spirit and Power is a fresh, scholarly, and definitive look at what Pentecostals believe and why. Whether you are a Pentecostal or a non-pentecostal, this book will help you get a thorough understanding of Pentecostal perspectives and their Scriptural foundations.
