Item description for Only One Baptism of the Holy Spirit by Peter Masters...

Overview
Young Christians these days are confronted by much confusion on the teaching of the Holy Spirit and how He baptizes, fills and anoints God's people. Contradictory statements and clashing ideas flow from a new generation of anecdotal-style books. When is the believer baptized with the Spirit, and what does it amount to? Is there a second baptism? How exactly does the Spirit witness with our spirit? How does assurance come? Is the believer to struggle against sin, or does the Lord fight the battle for him? What is the filling of the Spirit? Clear answers are given to all such questions, with 'proof texts'. Ideal for all, especially young believers and study groups.

Reviews - What do customers think about Only One Baptism of the Holy Spirit?

Remarkable book, written for the edification of the saints..  Jan 13, 2005
This book was written for the Christian, to help him/her to understand the Scriptural principles of what it means to be "baptised by the Holy Spirit". In a day when unscriptural practices (second blessing and the like) are "read back" into Biblical accounts, this book is much needed. The author has lived through the era when the charismatic movement was gaining headway and this book is his labour of love regarding conversion and sanctification. That is so very important to Christians and unbelievers alike.
Maybe reviewers should know the issues at stake before making unfair and unkind remarks about the author and his book. I recommend this book to anyone.
 
Basically useless, I'm afraid . . .  Jan 11, 2004
The basic premise of this book is that there is "only one baptism of the Holy Spirit." Fair enough. However, in arguing against typical pentacostal/charismatic/neo-puritan second-blessing teaching, the author's own thesis is EQUALLY wrong. Both camps make the mistake of seeing the Spirit's baptism in terms of the ordo-salutis - the various aspects of conversion on into living the Christian life. But this is not true - as our Lord made plain in the Gospel accounts.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit belongs to the "historia-salutis" - the history of salvation; it isn't something universally experienced at all. As with all the components of the work of Christ - the incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, judgment. These are REDEMPTIVE-HISTORICAL events that cannot be repeated. The people who experience them first-hand are unique individuals who have the rare privilege of personally participating in the work of God.

Becoming a Christian joins one to the body of Christ. When that body was formed, at Pentecost, it was formed by the pouring out/Baptizing of the Holy Spirit. The only future "baptism" of this kind - post-Pentecost - is the baptism of fire at the day of judgment.

Sorry, Peter. A little more study and less reliance on tradition would help us all move beyond both camps in this discussion. I am afraid your book is basically useless.
