    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    An excellent discussion of the issues involved.

    For those interested in the issue of the Charismata, this book provides an introduction and introductory case for the four main views- Pentecostal, Cessasionist, 3rd Wave Charismatic and moderate Evangelical.
    Gaffin deviatess from some of the usual arguments made by Cessationists. Out of the sections, I would say I find Saucy's argument for a moderate stance most persuasive, though I am more inclined personally to the Third Wave.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Represents a major breakthrough on study of cessationism

    Had Evangelical scholarship kept up to date, this work could have been written 40 years ago, saving a lot of grief and controversy over a highly volatile issue. Cessationism, the doctrine that spiritual gifts ceased with the apostles, is now the focus of a disciplined, scholarly debate between scholars representing four views, ranging from "Gifts Ceased" (R. Gaffin), "Less Frequent" (R. Saucy), "Continued--3rd Wave" (C. Storms) and "Continued--Pentecostal/charismatic" (D. Oss).17 hours of face-to-face debate forced the positions to confront each others' arguments more squarely. No one changed his mind, but the dialog broke new ground, providing a rich array of insights for those with the tenacity to work through this sophisticated work. (See full review in forthcoming Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society by Jon Ruthven, author of "On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Post-Biblical Miracles." Sheffield, 1993).
