Perspectives on Spirit Baptism presents in counterpoint form the basic common beliefs on spirit baptism which have developed over the course of church history with a view toward determining which is most faithful to Scripture. Each chapter will be written by a prominent person from within each tradition - with specific guidelines dealing with the biblical, historical, and theological issues within each tradition. In addition, each writer will have the opportunity to give a brief response to the other traditions.
Focusing on biblical, theological, and historical issues, this point-counterpoint discussion examines common views of the function of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life---and evaluates the faithfulness of each to Scripture. Larry Hart presents the Charismatic position; Stanley Horton, the Pentecostal; Walter Kaiser, the Reformed; Michael Harper, the Sacramental; and Ray Dunning, the Wesleyan.
