C. David Jones, DMin4 Stars Out Of 5June 27, 2009C. David Jones, DMinTHE ULTIMATE EVIDENCE Rethinking The Evidence Issues for Spirit-Baptism by Larry Vern Newman, DMin Dr. Newmans work is carefully and insightfully organized into four major sections. In Part One: Antecedents of Glossolalia, the author traces the practice of glossolalia (speaking in ecstatic utterances) in the Hellenistic Religious of the ancient world, in Patristic Literature, and in Nineteenth-Century England. The question is posed as to what other criteria might be Biblically and hermeneutically sound and valid In Part Two: The Arguments of Three Traditions, Dr. Newman examines the Traditional, the Classical Pentecostal, and the Neo-Pentecostal Positions regarding the Biblical evidence and criteria for a Spirit baptism. Under Part Three: The Normative Argument, the author exposes the deficiencies in current Pentecostal Hermeneutics and calls for the adoption of a Biblically sound and valid hermeneutic by Pentecostal scholars, pastors and Biblically informed laity. Part Four: The Ultimate Evidence is the crowning contribution of Dr. Newmans work. He sets forth the Pauline Evidential Construct and advocates the Biblical Evidential Paradigm, calling the reader and the Charismatic movement toward a Comprehensive Evidential Construct embodied in the criterion of Scriptural agape! His thesis is scholarly and Biblically sound, and it is hoped and expected that his book will provide the framework for a reexamination and reformation of Pentecostal pneumatology and the placing of emphasis upon genuine Christian love as the ultimate evidence of the Spirit filled life. Dr. Newmans book is a must read for every charismatic pastor and churchman, and hopefully it will provide to the church at large a common basis for a greater understanding and appreciation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit within the Body of Christ on earth.C.
