Book excerpt: After years of witnessing the sometimes rancorous controversy between the Evangelical and Pentecostal camps, authors Rich Nathan and Ken Wilson suggest it's way past time to recognize that there's really only one camp. It is unnecessary to choose between the biblical emphasis of the great Evangelical tradition and the spiritual vitality of the Pentecostal and Charismatic traditions. A new breed of believers called Empowered Evangelicals has arisen to combine the best elements of both traditions. In this revised and updated edition, Empowered Evangelicals examines the teaching and practice of empowered Evangelical churches and shows both Pentecostals and Evangelicals how to combine the best elements of both congregations.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Are Miraculous Gifts for Today? takes you to the heart of one of the most dividing questions in the Church today: how are the Holy Spirit’s miracles at work among God's people now? Is he still actively giving the gifts of tongues, prophecy, and healing that fill the book of Acts? Is he driving out demons when Christians command them to flee? Or are these events confined to the time of the early church and the apostles? This volume of the Counterpoints series provides an impartial format for comparing the four main positions on present-day miracles (including the history and distinctions between the three positions that affirm miraculous gifts) with voice also given to a large sector of open-but-cautious evangelicals: Cessationist: there are no miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit today. Pentecostal: gifts are intended for today, with certain nuances focused on baptism and speaking in tongues. Charismatic: gifts are intended for today and should be actively practiced. Third Wave: gifts are intended for today, with greater emphasis on baptism and less on tongues. This thought-provoking book will help Christians on every side of the miraculous gifts debate to better understand their own position and the positions of others. The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.

Summary Book Review Word and Power by Gareth W. D. Stewart:

Download or read book Word and Power written by Gareth W. D. Stewart and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2015-02-16 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Historically, the Reformed and Charismatic streams have seemed to be almost mutually exclusive. In recent years, this exclusivity has been being challenged by a new generation of Reformed thinkers. This work aims at considering the contribution of John Wimber, the late leader of the Vineyard Churches, to contemporary theological reflection within the Reformed tradition. Taking into account John Wimber's unique theology of the "radical middle," which is somewhere between Pentecostal and Evangelical, this book asks whether Wimber may be a possible alternative source for the contemporary Reformed Churches as they approach ministry and mission in the twenty-first century. Written from a confessional Presbyterian context in Northern Ireland, Word and Power places Wimber in his theological context and asks whether Wimber's view of power evangelism, discipleship formation, and ministry training might be a model that Reformed Churches--and Presbyterians in particular--could adopt for their ecclesiology today.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Spirit Wind, a collaborative investigation into the works and person of the Holy Spirit, clearly and richly demonstrates diversity in theological perspectives but unity in the Christian faith. All theological discussions should aim at humbly respecting theological distinctiveness while sincerely encouraging theological conversations. Spirit Wind offers itself to achieve just that. Spirit Wind consists of nine chapters written by nine Chinese theologians, born in the Orient and trained in the West, who are now serving passionately as seminary professors in Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, or the United States. Each author endeavors to explain the person and works of the Holy Spirit not only from Chinese standpoints but also from biblical, historical, and cultural/pastoral perspectives, and yet all chapters are theological in nature. No theologian claims to capture all matters about the Spirit, but every author of this book is captivated by the powerful presence, sovereign freedom, and beautiful operations of the Holy Spirit. You will be, too!

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of this study on charismatic and expository preaching is to find the common ground of the two preaching methods and solidify them into a sound, biblical and theological preaching method that will edify the body of Christ and lead to growth for local churches. To solidify charismatic and expository preaching, it is necessary to explore the hermeneutical, exegetical, and homiletical issues that divide the two methods regarding the work of the Holy Spirit and the gifts the Spirit bestows to believers for ministry. Charismatic interpretations concerning the gifts of the Spirit revolve around “speaking in tongues” as the primary identifier of being filled with the Spirit, which most expository preachers and scholars view as an incorrect interpretation. This study seeks to answer these problems in the quest of unifying both preaching methods.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Who would have imagined that the hippies, those long-haired, psychedelia-influenced youth of the 1960s, would have initiated a spiritual revolution that has transformed American Christianity? If you are unfamiliar with the 1960s, the counterculture, the hippie movement, and the Jesus People, then this book will transport you to that era and introduce you to the generation and the decade that turned American culture upside down. If you have read other books on the Jesus People, this account will take you by surprise. A refreshingly different narrative that unveils a storyline and characters not commonly known to have been associated with the movement, this book argues that the Jesus People, though often trivialized and stigmatized as a group of lost and vulnerable youth who strayed from the Fundamentalism of their childhood, helped American Christianity negotiate a way forward in a post-1960s culture. It examines the narrative of the Holy Spirit and the phenomenon called Pentecostalism. Although utterly central, the Jesus People's Pentecostalism has never been examined and their story has been omitted from the historiography of Pentecostalism. This account uniquely redresses this omission.

Download or read book Out Of The Shadows And Into The Light written by W.J. Thomas III and published by Elm Hill. This book was released on 2020-05-12 with total page 236 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book uses the study of types and shadows to decipher the events of the larger Exodus story (slavery through the Promised Land). The material will lead the reader out of the shadows of the Old Testament into the light of the New Testament fulfillments. The purpose of this material is to challenge the reader’s understanding of the way these events have traditionally been interpreted. Alternate interpretations will be presented with accompanying reasons and scriptures. The chapters are intended to take snapshots of the six major events comprising the Exodus. They will be organized according to the following headings. The Journey out of Bondage will encompass chapters 1-3, slavery in Egypt, the establishment of the Passover, and crossing the Red Sea; The Journey in the Wilderness contains only one chapter, 4; and The Journey into Promise will complete our investigation of the Exodus story by viewing the last two events, crossing the Jordan River and entering the Promised land, chapters 5 and 6 respectively. Some chapters need an additional explanation on a particular point; an excursus is provided to promote clarity. At the end of each chapter is a Discipleship Challenge with which the reader is asked to personally apply the principles presented. A study guide is also provided for those who wish to use this material in a small/cell/life group atmosphere.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Land Full of God gives American Christians an opportunity to promote peace and justice in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It shows them how to understand the enmity with brief, digestible, and comprehensive essays about the historical, political, religious, and geographical tensions that have led to many of the dynamics we see today. All the while, A Land Full of God walks readers through a biblical perspective of God's heart for Israel and the historic suffering of the Jewish people, while also remaining sensitive to the experience and suffering of Palestinians. The prevailing wave of Christian voices are seeking a pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace, pro-justice, pro-poor, and ultimately pro-Jesus approach to bring resolution to the conflict.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using a biblical, strategic plan, this book presents a dynamic, effective plan for planting churches. It presents God's heart for kingdom expansion-planting local churches. Herron discusses characteristics and methods of successful church planters. He thoroughly diagrams how a potential church planter can survey a community with the intent of developing a heart for the community, how to plan strategically, and how to pray strategically. Also included are keys to effective church planting-strategic planning, gathering the core group, reaching the lost, structuring for disciple-making, and developing leaders. Common pitfalls are also discussed. Expanding God's Kingdom Through Church Planting is a book to be read, reread and shared. It deserves a "front row seat" on a bookshelf. Herron writes, "This book was written to provide a high-quality guidebook for church planters, churches that plant churches, schools that teach church planting, and denominational or post-denomination leaders that over church planting."

Download or read book Norming the Abnormal written by Aaron T. Friesen and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2013-02-19 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pentecostalism is one of the largest and fastest growing religious movements around the world. Yet, the movement's defining doctrine has met with controversy and criticism since its inception. Classical Pentecostals have not only affirmed and valued the experience of speaking in other tongues, they have argued that such an experience is the first evidence of a Christian having reached a level of spiritual empowerment they call Baptism in the Holy Spirit. That speaking in an unknown language should be considered by many Pentecostals to be a normative and uniform right of passage for all Christians is interesting. That such a controversial doctrine could rise to take such a prominent role in defining and shaping the Pentecostal movement begs further historical and social study. This work charts the development of the doctrine from a small community in the Midwest to become a norm for Pentecostal identity and a hallmark of Pentecostal experience around the world. Then, through an empirical study of ministers in three Pentecostal denominations, the work explores the current beliefs of practices of Pentecostals regarding the doctrine of initial evidence in order to form some conclusions and proposals about the future of the doctrine among classical Pentecostals.

Summary Book Review Mystically Wired by Ken Wilson:

Download or read book Mystically Wired written by Ken Wilson and published by Thomas Nelson. This book was released on 2012-07-23 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: We are designed to make connections to God through prayer in more ways than we can imagine. Prayer can be so much more than a simple conversation. It can be a wordless connection with God, a step beyond the boundary of the separated self. It can be a way to listen to the silence. And it can be learned. We can learn how to pray in ways we never thought possible. It doesn't take more effort; it takes more understanding. Wilson's book shows how the brain is designed by God: To calm itself To relax into love To become increasingly aware of how connected everything is in God To experience a deeper intimacy with our Creator Prayer is something that our brains want to do with a little help. Ken Wilson tells us how. Praise for Mystically Wired: “Smart, savvy, candid, credible, unafraid, self-effacing, and shot through with passionate love of Jesus . . . yes, hands down, this is the best book on prayer that I have ever read. — Phyllis Tickle, Compiler, The Words of Jesus: A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord “I confess, I don’t normally like books on prayer, but Mystically Wired is a big exception. While this book is incredibly practical, I was routinely blown away by the intuitive genius of Ken’s view and application of prayer. Page after page, thinking I knew what was next, I was surprised with fresh insight and unique perspectives on connecting with God. Being an evangelist, I was excited to realize I could also send this to spiritual friends who don’t follow Jesus as a way to introduce him.” — R. York Moore, National Evangelist InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA “It began the day Jesus’ disciples came to him and asked, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ Ever since, Christ-followers have been wanting to learn the ways of prayer. Ken Wilson’s Mystically Wired is an extraordinary contribution to that learning tradition. It’s a wonderful read that leaves you feeling, ‘Yes, this is for me. Yes, I can do this. Yes, it’s within reach.’” — Brian McLaren, Author/Speaker/Activist “I wandered away from religion because religion thought it had all the answers. Pastor Ken Wilson, though, understands that life and faith are really about having the right questions. If you want to pray for favors, put this book down now. If you want the answers, the help here is only partial. But if you’re looking for a wide-ranging inquiry, and a path that can bring you closer to the mystery—without the mumbo-jumbo—delve within.” — Carl Safina, Author, Song for the Blue Ocean and The View From Lazy Point “Mystically Wired was a breath of fresh apologetic air for me. I pray and I experience God, and I find fixed hour prayer deeply meaningful, but this book shows that God made us to do such things and our brain is wired to communicate with God.” — Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University “In my library there are scores of books on prayer—by legends and modern guides as well. It is not easy to make a genuine contribution to this body of literature. But Ken Wilson has done so. Mystically Wired manages to bring together the best of the sciences and philosophies of mind, brain, and consciousness with deep spirituality and candid personal reflection. While it will happily fit my on my shelf, it fits best in a heart yearning to pray.” — Todd Hunter, Anglican Bishop
