Robert Menzies, writing in the lucid, moderate style for which he is wellknown, skillfully explains Pentecostal theology. His answer for the uncertain and the confused is a skillful melding of sound hermeneutics, solid exegesis, and heartfelt testimony. Pentecost demonstrates that the Pentecostal experience is by far the best twentyfirst century expression of Luke's distinctive vision of the Spiritbaptized church in mission. This book is a heartfelt invitation for all Christians to be open to a new filling of the Holy Spirit of Jesus so He can continue to do immeasurably more for and through mere human beings than any of us can ask or even imagine!
Robert Menzies completed his Ph.D. studies (New Testament) at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland under the supervision of I. Howard Marshall in 1989. He has authored several books on the work of the Spirit, including Spirit and Power: Foundations of Pentecostal Experience (Zondervan, 2000), which he co-authored with his father.
