This classic, now in paperback edition, introduces the reader to the most distinctive aspect of Pentecostal theology--baptism in the Holy Spirit. James Dunn sees water-baptism as only one element in the New Testament pattern of conversion and initiation. The gift of the Spirit, he believes, is the central element.

An important book. Otherwise I wouldn't have subjected myself to such a snoozefest. I recommend skipping it. Your time will likely be better spend in reading Baptism in the Spirit: Luke-Acts and the Dunn Debate Read full review
