Brief Introduction to Classical Pentecostal View Oct 28, 2004
Ray Hughes is one of the best known preachers in the Church of God (Cleveland, TN). He is in high demand for campmeetings and for revival services in many Pentecostal churches. He also is one of the Church of God's most prolific writers with many of his sermons becoming books.
In this short book, Rev. Hughes offers a classical Pentecostal view of the Holy Spirit. The classical position being that the every Christian needs to experience the Baptism with the Holy Ghost with the initial, physical sign of speaking in other tongues according to Acts 2:4. Those who have never spoken in tongues are said to not be Spirit-Filled according to Scripture. Hughes writes to defend this position.
However, this book is much more than the Church of God, Spirit-Baptism, and speaking in other tongues but Rev. Hughes presents a short overview of the entire person and work of the Holy Ghost from the Old and New Testaments. He briefly touches on various views of the Holy Spirit but mostly offers an evangelical view apart from sanctification (Wesleyan) and Spirit-Baptism (Pentecostal) and the gifts of the Spirit (non-cessasionist).
