There are few other topics on which Christians are so divided. And a large majority of believers are unclear about what spiritual language really means. This is a balanced, biblical approach for anyone wanting to make an honest inquiry into the nature of speaking in tongues. Hayford debunks common myths surrounding the practice of tongues and shares with readers the beauty and the order of spiritual language that he has discovered during his times of private communion with God.

excellent read Jul 19, 2005
I always trust Jack Hayford. He backed up everything he said with Scripture. Truly blessed by this book. Already having received the gift of Spiritual language, wanted to know more about it. Learned more...still digging.
INSIGHTFUL! Jul 19, 2005
Pastor Jack Hayford has hit a homerun with this book. He not only gives clear biblical evidence for receiving a spiritual language, but also practical understanding for the gift. He gives great insight to the purpose and use of the gift and why it is so important for Christians to receive and use this gift in this day. He writes with grace and understanding, which will help any believer come to a better understanding of the spiritual language. 2 Thumbs Up! Dr. Daniel Gilbert
Devotional Reading on Tongues Oct 19, 2004
Jack Hayford's THE BEAUTY OF SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE is more of a devotional read on speaking in tongues. Hayford likes to use the charismatic phrase, "spiritual language" rather than speaking in tongues although the words do not actually appear in the New Testament. The book dives first into the Pentecostal teaching on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Hayford then moves away slightly from his Pentecostal heritage to take a more charismatic approach to the initial, physical evidence of Spirit-Baptism but he does believe that every Christian can and should speak in tongues.
The book is not written as a theological argument for tongues and only those from a charismatic experience can truly appreciate Hayford's book. If you are a non-charismatic looking for biblical teaching on Spirit-Baptism or speaking in tongues you will want to look at Howard Ervin, J. Rodman Williams, Stanley Horton, or other Pentecostal scholars. While Hayford has a doctorate, this book is a devotional book.
Thoughtful addition to any library Oct 16, 2003
The best thing about this book is the beautify of its prose. Jack Hayford knows how to write. This is a beautiful and compelling book about unveiling the mystery of speaking in tongues. Unlike most books on the Pentecostal experience, Jack writes with intelligence, insight, a keen eye to the Scripture and the ability to deal with the tough issues. The book is built on four premises: 1. Speaking with tongues is neither unbiblical nor outdated. 2. Speaking with tongues is not a transcendental experience. 3. Speaking with tongues is not a status symbol. 4. Speaking with tongues is not proposed as a substitute for spiritual growth.
Earlier in my ministry, I was a big fan of both John McArthur and Hank Hanegraaff who take quite different positions on the tongues issue than Hayford. While I remain a fan of John McArthur, Hank Hanegraaff seems to have a virulent and divisive attitude toward the tongues phenomena. If you have been influenced by the likes of Hanegraaff, no matter what your position is on the tongues issue, you need to read this book. Hayford shows a depth of Christian maturity, scholarship and love that is often missing in charismatic debate. He provides the reader with credible alternative to the dry, dusty, doctrinal approach of Hanegraaff.
For those who could not care less about the theological debate and just want to learn more about the tongues phenomena, this book is for you, Hayfords solid exegesis may give you a new perspective on tongues. This book would be a thoughtful addition to any personal library.
Spiritual Language will Worship His Majesty Dec 6, 2002
Several years ago, I was given a copy of Dr. Jack W. Hayfords book "Rebuilding The Real You: Gods' Pathway To Personal Restoration". It turned my life around 180 degrees. As a wounded soldier of the cross at the time I needed it. "They Speak With Other Tongues" is an excellent resourse for furthering your knowledge of spiritual matters. Openness to the Holy Spirit is a must for any of it to benifit oneself, thus being more fitly empowered to do work for God. I am so glad to find the two books being sokd together with some savings to the readers. The Beauty Of Spiritual Language and They Speak With Other Tongues will always be a part of my library and I plan on buying more sets for gifts to others. To "Worship His Majesty" we must be open and willing vessels for Gods' use.
