Customer Reviews for Thomas Nelson The Beauty of Spiritual Language

Thomas Nelson The Beauty of Spiritual Language

Evangelical leaders have long noticed that Jack Hayford's approach to "speaking in tongues" doesn't fit the stereotype. He shuns sensational display, warns against excesses, and is never emotionally overwrought. So what, they ask, does he believe about "spiritual Language"?

In The Beauty of Spiritual Language, Dr. Hayford describes his own experience and explains how he came to validate that experience. In sensible, biblical terms, he describes how tongues speaking is neither gibberish nor emotional exuberance, but rather an intimate encounter with the heart of God.

In a broad appeal that crosses denominational lines, Hayford makes a persuasive case for accepting tongues as a normal part of a Christian's experience. Anyone wanting an objective inquiry into the nature and biblical basis for this gift will appreciate The Beauty of Spiritual Language.

A good read. Very helpful and thorough. It cover the subject of speaking in tongues in a thoughtful and caring manner. After reading this, I don't know why anyone would not want to speak in tongues.

I am so glad Pastor Hayford wrote this awesome & rare book. It not only has Biblical back up & incredible testimonies about why those who have accepted Christ should also invite the fullness of His spirit, but it is a book that can be recommended in confidence to those who are unsure about praying in the spirit because of the integrity of Hayford's ministry & character. Bravo Pastor Hayford!

Hayford deals with the often controversial gift of "tongues." I found this book to be filled with great, everyday illustrations of the power of praying in a heavenly language. If you are not from a charismatic background, you may struggle with some of Hayford's termonlogy but you can catch on quick. My only drawback from this book is that Hayford does not give a strong biblical reason for his beliefs as outlined in this book. He does deal with a few texts but does not take issue with Pentecostal or Non-Pentecostal theologians. I believe he could have made a stronger argument from Scripture than by experience as Hayford does in this book.
