Theology of the Holy Spirit: The Pentecostal Experience and the New Testament Witness, A $16.95 $12.71

Frederick Dale Bruner
Trade paperback, 390 pages, [1970] 2001

This is a masterful and well-researched exposition and analysis of Pentecostalism. Pentecostalism and its daughter, the Charismatic movement, dwarf the Protestant movement, claiming 500,000,000 adherents worldwide, virtually all of them gained in the twentieth century. Bruner's book is invaluable in understanding the spectacular growth of this pseudo-Christian cult. Bruner's analyses are very well done, but the reader should be warned that he quotes Liberal and Neo-orthodox writers more than Reformed, and his own views fall into the heresy of sacramentarianism. Nevertheless, as Dr. Clark says in The Holy Spirit, "this book is indispensable for anyone who wishes to understand Pentecostalism."
