Evangelical and charismatics have long been trading salvos over the doctrinal wall. One side has championed the Word; the other, the Holy Spirit. But are the Word and the Spirit really in conflict? Today, more and more Christians are realizing that it's time for us to lay down our weapons and embrace the strengths each side has to offer. Time to become what God has always intended us to be: The Word & Power Church.
A careful look at Scripture, church history, and the church today revealing the need for both the Pentecostal and evangelical perspectives. Evangelicals and charismatics have long been at odds. One side champions the Word, the other the Holy Spirit. But are the Word and Spirit really in conflict or does Gods ideal include both sound biblical teaching and Gods inner leading? Pastor Doug Banister shows that its time to get rid of either-or thinking and discover the incredible potential that arises when evangelicals combine their strengths with charismatics. This thought-provoking book looks at the why-tos and how-tos of worshiping God in spirit and in truth.
