Bethany House Answering Your Questions About Speaking in Tongues

This classic, first published in 1968, is an easy to understand book explaining the purpose and meaning that God had in mind when He appointed the gift of tongues for the church. Written for lay Christians, it discusses speaking in tongues as a sign, as a gift, and as a ministry, as well as answering the question many Christians ask: "Is speaking in tongues for me?" Christian Research Institute said, "An excellent study on this gift: whether you agree or disagree, this book will answer many questions people are asking today." This book includes a new introduction from the author, a recognized lead in the renewal movement.

The book gave me good information, in easy to understand words. I had questions, since I have recently been baptised in the Holy Spirit and have talked in tonges a couple of times, and was kind of scared by it. My husband is currently reading it also. Thanks for carrying this book.

As a Christian from the Protestant branch of the family tree, I was aware of more abundant information on the topic of tongues being available in Pentecostal circles than in the mainline denominations. Thus, not only was I pleased to find this very thorough book, but amazed to see that its author was Lutheran! The book is particularly strong in the way it addresses questions often asked by people from "mainline denominations", such as why speaking in tongues is useful.The part of the book I most appreciated was the case Christenson makes for baptism in the Holy Spirit being an objective experience, separate and apart from the indwelling of the spirit that comes at the point of new birth. This is supported by a nice analysis of Bible accounts-mostly in the book of Acts-of groups of people who received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (believers at Ephesus, Samaria, and those in the household of Cornelius). The reader can then compare the author's claim for Holy Spirit baptism being a separate distinct experience to the sequence of events, as each group receives, in different order, water baptism, the new birth, and the baptism in the Holy Spirit.That part, in my opinion, makes this book so very valuable, because it opens the possibility for lifelong churchgoers to realize that without experiencing the baptism in the Holy Spirit, they may not have received all that the Father earnestly desires to impart to them.Mindful of the stunning transformation in the disciples after they received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, it is my hope that many will read this book, and thereby petition the Father for "power from on high (Luke 24:49)."
