Written for lay Christians, it discusses speaking in tongues as a sign, as a gift, and as a ministry, as well as answering the question many Christians ask: "Is speaking in tongues for me?" The Christian Research Institute called it "an excellent study on this gift: whether you agree or disagree, this book will answer many questions people are asking today." The book includes a new introduction from the author, a recognized leader in the renewal movement.

View: 930Almost 40 years ago John and Elizabeth Sherill introduced the world to the phenomenon of 'speaking in tongues' in their book, They Speak with Other Tongues. The book was an immediate success as thousands were touched by the power of this spiritual gift. The Hidden Power of Speaking in Tongues again explores this spiritual experience powerfully prevalent in the early church. This much maligned and controversial gift was a practical part of their worship and intercession and seeks to be rediscovered in our day. In a day of spiritual poverty, Chavda challenges the Body of Christ to experience afresh the secret dynamic of 'speaking in tongues', as he removes the veil covering this glorious gift.

The Initial, Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit Debate

View: 4090What others are saying... As an AG minister, I was especially interested in Dr. Walston's discussion of this topic. I found his arguments lucid, biblical, exegetical, and convincing. Rev. Kevin Potts, Ph.D. Candidate, Chaplain Dr. Walston has thrown a 'big wrench' into my tongues-as-evidence doctrinal gears. I am now working through what I thought was a foundational doctrine that I also thought was settled long ago. This book should be required reading for people on both sides of this issue. Dr. Denny Nissley, AG minister, Director of Christ in Action Ministries Many books and articles have been written in defense of speaking in tongues as the unmistakable, physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Through his careful and thorough analysis of the Pentecostal texts in the Book of Acts, Dr. Walston is challenging this view. This book is beyond doubt one of the most thought-provoking analyses on this theme I have ever read. Nils-Olov Nilsson, Th.D., Swedish Missionary and Theologian with the Swedish Pentecostal Movement
The Holy Spirit vs. Deceiving Spirits
Author: John Argubright
Publisher: John Argubright
View: 9740The Biblical gift of speaking in tongues is the supernatural gift from God of speaking in a known foreign language to unbelievers without any previous knowledge or training in that language. And what is spoken in that foreign language is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The main purpose is in order that Christ and Him crucified would be preached to all nations in a language that the hearer would understand. Yet today, many wolves in sheep clothing have perverted what the true gift of speaking in tongues really is, and have replaced it with all sorts of false doctrines. This Bible study teaches verse by verse on this topic, teaching what the Bible says as compared to what the heretics of today have to say, who are deceiving Christians by telling them to pray in ecstatic utterance that was once only associated with demonic possession. And as you will see, a very dangerous doctrine is being spewed from the tongues of these false prophets.

View: 7141Speaking in tongues (glossolalia) is a common spiritual phenomenon in the Pentecostal and Charismatic streams of the Christian church. Such Christians believe that when they speak in tongues they are communicating with God in a language that they have never learned--spiritual prayer language given to them by the Holy Spirit. This innovative volume seeks to enhance our understanding and appreciation of glossolalia by examining it from a range of different angles. Christian scholars from diverse academic disciplines bring to bear the insights of their own specialist areas to shed new light on the practice of speaking in tongues. The disciplines include: New Testament Studies--Max Turner Theology--Frank D. Macchia History--Neil Hudson Philosophy--James K. A. Smith Linguistics--David Hilborn Sociology--Margaret M. Poloma Psychology--William K. Kay A final chapter by Mark J. Cartledge seeks to show how all of these perspectives can work together and enrich a Christian appreciation of the gift of tongues.

View: 1619Speaking in Tongues, the second volume of the English in the World series, places the reader at the heart of investigations into the nature and process of translation in an internationalized scenario where: the consolidation of multilateral institutions and multinational corporations struggle between globalization and localization; the information and communication technologies are both the means to enhance translation productivity and the main source of jobs for professional translators; the new media and communication technologies provide a whole range of ways to interact with other, both in leisure and academic settings. The scope of the book ranges from Systemic Functional Linguistics to Discourse Analysis, from Intercultural Rhetoric to Poststructuralism. The collection of articles has been edited to recognise the range of perspectives looking to this field and is of direct interest both to any linguist, translator or other social scientist working in the study of interlingual communication and to those designing and buying translation techologies for porfessional purposes.

Speaking Supernaturally In Unknown and Known Tongues

View: 5443Speaking in tongues is uttering words in an unknown language by the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Prophecy is a supernatural utterance in a known language by the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit for edification, comfort, and exhortation of the Saints. Speaking in tongues plus the interpretation of tongues is equal to prophecy. There is the simple gift of speaking in tongues, which is needed for the Christian’s private prayer life and personal edification; and there is the gift of diverse or different kinds of tongues for public ministration.
