Book Description

1 July 1996
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.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
WITHIN more radical and pietistic Protestantism there has grown up a tradition which holds that salvation, so far as it may be known in this life, is experienced in two stages: first, the experience of becoming a Christian; then, as a later and distinct event, a second experience of the Holy Spirit. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenge to all theologians 27 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A classic in its own time. Although Dunn does take to task the Pentecostals I feel at times he is lacking in real support of his preconceived ideas! A must have read for all serious theology students

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Reading For Studying the Holy Spirit 30 Mar 2002
By Seeking Disciple - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I purchased Dunn's book to read a differant opinion of those of my persuasion in the Pentecostal Movement. I must admit that this book is very technical and if you are not familiar with Greek than you may want to avoid this book.
Dunn's main premise is that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit did occur in Acts as a "second work of grace" but this is only part of Jesus' plan of evangelism and conversion (Acts 1:8). The dramatic Spirit-Baptisms were simply God giving His sign of approval upon their conversions. Thus Dunn views the Baptism in the Spirit as a conversion/initiation experience (1 Cor. 12:13).
Dunn's book has become the standard reply by non-Pentecostals and non-charismatics. The book was written in 1970 and has since become standard reading in many evangelical colleges. Even those who do not ascribe to Dunn hold to his theological approach in explaining Spirit-Baptisms in Acts.

By Jeremiah Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an important book. It was originally a dissertation. Unless you need to read this book for academic reasons your time will likely be better spent in reading Baptism in the Spirit: Luke-Acts and the Dunn Debate -- an engaging and scholarly overview that corrects some of Dunn's missteps.
Baptism in the Spirit: Luke-Acts and the Dunn Debate
Or, another excellent option: The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is very good 8 Feb 2014
By Lewis Sanyel Griggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is one of my text books for this semester, which begins since, 27.01.2014.....After lectures in it, I believed it is very good, and useful for ministry.
However, I admonish Amazon.com, to send my because this is the first book I should had completed reading,, before next Friday exam.
So, the way in which AMAZON, delays my orders, effect me a whole lot.
Please send my orders now.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, blah blah blah 30 Jan 2014
By William Jergensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is just an excuse for a powerless church. The book and it's old arguments have been refuted by Dr. Howard Ervin, Dr. Jack Deere and others. Ignoring this book is a good idea. Unless you need something to start a fire!

2.0 out of 5 stars God, "The same yesterday, today, and forever." 19 Mar 2006
By Search for Truth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book title basically speaks for itself and the Bible does, too. If God doesn't change, just because we live in the 2000's, doesn't mean God has changed either.

If the Bible states that God doesn't change, then it is pointless to give the relation as to how it pertains to us today.
