The times have long passed when Pentecostals were viewed as Protestantisms untouchables. Today, the shock waves from Azusa Street have influenced countless Evangelicals worldwide. But if dialogue between Pentecostals and Evangelicals has awakened within the latter a thirst for the power of Gods Spirit, it has challenged Pentecostals to examine their theology more deeply in the light of his Word. Just how firm is the biblical foundation on which they stand? Spirit and Power provides a cutting-edge look at Pentecostal theology. It addresses the concern expressed by its authors and echoed throughout charismatic churches today: Although our Pentecostal forefathers intuitively grasped the correlation between the reality they experienced and the promise of Acts 1:8, they did not always articulate their theology in a manner that was convincing to other believers committed to the authority of Scripture. In response, theologians William and Robert Menzies explore Pentecostalism in a scholarly and current light. Spirit and Power is no mere paraphrase of dated approaches. It is a fresh and penetrating look at the whys and wherefores of Pentecostal doctrine that sets a new standard for Spirit-filled theology. Whatever your persuasion may be as a Christian, this books thoughtfulness, balance, and biblical integrity will help you appreciate more fully the strengths of the Pentecostal stance. Laying the groundwork for an accurate understanding of Lukes writings in particular, the authors help you grasp the foundations of Pentecostal theology from the standpoints of history, hermeneutics, and exegesis. Then, in Part Two, they give you an in-depth look at specific Pentecostal concerns: the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a blessing subsequent to salvation, evidential tongues, signs and wonders, healing in the atonement, and more. Youll deepen your understanding of the basis for Pentecostal beliefs. And youll gain a feel for the mutually beneficial dialogue that continues between Pentecostals and Evangelicals today.

Roy Ingle5 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2000Roy IngleA great book that digs deep into the theology of the Pentecostal Movement. Menzies' are both incrediable and gifted men of God in the Assemblies of God. Their knowledge of the Word and their experience of being baptized in the Spirit reveals itself well in this book. If you are a sceptic of the Pentecostals, this book will give you insight into the desire of most Pentecostals to be scholarly yet on fire for Jesus.
