    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    A scholar's look at the Holy Spirit

    Dr. Palma deals with the critical questions surrounding the Pentecostal distinctives in regards to the Holy Spirit. He is diligent to fairly present opposing views while showing his own reasons for holding to the classic Pentecostal view. This is a look at the doctrine of the Holy Spirit by a scholar who is not afraid of where the truth may lead him.



    1 star1 starNo starNo starNo star    Very Unconvincing!

    Palma does an excellent job outlining the Classical Pentecostal position; however, you can not take one verse at the exclusion of another. The bible contains twenty six accounts of Holy Spirit baptisms with only three references of speaking in tongues. Even with all the big words, I am unconvinced (write to express not to impress).



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Theological Book on Pentecostal Position

    Dr. Anthony Palma represents the heart of the new emerging breed of theologians in the classical Pentecostal position. Now retired, Dr. Palma was a distinguished professor at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, MO (AGTS).

    This book offers a much deeper and more theological position of the Assemblies of God on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Most of this book was originally published in a small book form simply entitled THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. Several new chapters were added on the person of the Spirit and hence this book.

    This is a technical book and a person not fimiliar with theology or theological terms would not enjoy this book. Dr. Palma also is a Greek scholar and will inject word studies in his chapters that so need them.

    One of the main reasons to buy this book is Dr. Palma's dealing with the initial, physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (which he defines as speaking in tongues). Dr. Palma seeks to offer another approach to initial evidence while remaining classical Pentecostal in his approach. He also challanges the Pentecostal interpretation of John 20:22 as the new birth of the eleven disciples of Christ.

    You will enjoy this book if you are seeking a deeper theological position on the Pentecostal view of the person and work of the Spirit.
