Great Introduction From an Insider Jun 29, 2005
The author Harold L. Bare is a Pentecostal minister with the Church of God (Cleveland, TN). He writes this book from the perspective of an insider who grew up in a Pentecostal family. He outlines the basic doctrinal standpoints of Pentecostals and address a few stereotypical myths that have plagued Pentecostals. Here you will learn:
*Why we speak in tongues *How the Pentecostal experience resurfaced in America after nearly 1800 years of suppression *That Pentecostals DO NOT handle snakes *That not all Pentecostals are alike *About the Charismatic movement, which is separate from Pentecostalism *That the Pentecostal experience is available to all.
This book is written from the Trinitarian point of view, and unfortunately, Bare does not address the stereotype caused by Oneness Pentecostals, which are a very different group.
