Theology of the Holy Spirit: The Pentecostal Experience and the New Testament Witness by Fredrick Dale Bruner
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.”
Contents: An Introduction to Method and Procedure Part 1: The Holy Spirit in Pentecostal Experience; The Contemporary Place and Significance of the Pentecostal Movement; The Background and the Beginnings of the Pentecostal Movement; The Baptism in the Holy Spirit in the Pentecostal Movement; The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Pentecostal Movement.
