Get ready for a "Church Shift" through praying in the Spirit and thinking ecumenically, looking at key elements that unite the Church. Spirit Baptism shows how to achieve true spiritual power and genuine Church unity that transcend all barriers. Spirit baptism fulfills the hunger for the vertical relationship with God while the horizontal connection throughout the universal body of Christ is accessed through an ecumenical focus. The resulting "matrix" is reverberating worldwide. Understanding Pentecostal theology is pivotal in realizing this inter-connectedness. Dr. Verna Linzey aptly provides outstanding tools for understanding Spirit baptism. "Verna M. Linzey's book, Spirit Baptism, is a restatement of classic Pentecostal convictions on baptism in the Spirit and speaking in tongues, with the same ingenuousness and fervour which lit the flame of Pentecostalism one hundred years ago." - James Dunn "In Spirit Baptism, Verna Linzey has given this generation a fresh new look at the Pentecostal experience as experienced by millions of people worldwide in the last century." - Vinson Synan "This wonderful masterpiece deals extensively . . . with the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit." - Samhwan Kim Dr. Verna Linzey hosts "The Holy Spirit Today" television and radio broadcasts. Dr. Linzey is Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Verna Linzey Child Care Ministry based in the Philippines. In 2006, on the 100th anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival, Dr. Linzey was awarded the 2005 Best Non-Fiction of the Year Award by the San Diego Christian Writer's Guild for writing The Baptism with the Holy Spirit. Dr. Linzey matriculated at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, attended Church Growth Seminars in the Doctor of Ministry Program at Fuller Theological Seminary as a special guest, and received an Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree at Kingsway Theological Seminary.
