Pathway Press Glossolalia Phenomenon

It is abundantly evident that there is widespread and sincere interest in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, with the accompanying manifestation of tongues, in the world today. It is equally evident that there is an urgent need for clarification so that those interested in the subject may know the viewpoint of a people that have embraced this teaching and experience for many years.

The Glossolalia Phenomenon is a multipurpose book. The purposes are apparent in the light of (1) the confusion surrounding the subject in this day, (2) the evidence of increasing interest being shown in glossolalia, and (3) the need for undistorted scriptural guidance to those who are new in the Pentecostal way. This book contributes to a better understanding of this apostolic doctine by establishing a reservoir of sound, scriptural, historical, and empirical information on the subject of speaking in tongues.

This is a book edited by Wade Horton, former General Overseer of the Church of God (Cleveland, TN). Various Church of God theologians and pastors write about the glossalalia (Greek for Languages) within Pentecostal churches and experience.The book aims to defend the Pentecostal understanding that speaking in tongues is:1. The initial, physical evidence of Spirit-Baptism.2. A prayer language given by God to the believer for their use in private prayer.3. A gift of the Spirit to speak to the people of God (1 Cor. 14:4).The book is fairly dated so the arguments stem primarily from the time it was written (1960's). The writers do a good job of dealing with several texts concerning speaking in tongues as well as church history and the experience.
