Yes, this book is very good if you like it so much that you choke as you die on the same time as you read the book about it.

A Concise Pentecostal Theology 24 Aug. 2000
By Kristi G. Mell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Contained within this well organized volume is the core of Pentecostal theology and a must read for anyone who seeks to better understand pentecostalism. Each of the sixteen doctrines, supported sufficiently with scripture, is presented within a theological framework . An example of such a framework, for the doctrine The One True God, would be the classical arguements given since medieval days for the existence of God (chapter 2). A nice plus is found at the end of each chapter where the authors have provided study questions to help insure the reader's comprehension of the material. Menzies and Horton have created a work that serves two purposes: first, as a resource for general theological knowledge; and, second, as a specific doctrinal reference for the Assemblies of God. Thus "Bible Doctrines - A Pentecostal Perspective" is an excellent addition to the library of the serious Bible student.

Brief Introduction to the Assemblies of God Doctrines 18 May 2004
By Seeking Disciple - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Assemblies of God is the world's largest classical Pentecostal denomination in the world with over 40 million members worldwide. It is also the largest missionary movement in history of humanity.
However, all of this has evolved from the Assemblies of God Statement of Fundamental Truths written in 1914 in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This short volume covers those sixteen truths. Each truth is covered in only 4 to 5 pages. But don't let that stop you from reading this book for a brief introduction to the Pentecostal teachings.
Finally, one word about the "saint" and his comments about the Holy Ghost and the Assemblies of God. The Assemblies of God is not a holiness-Pentecostal movement but grew out of mainly ministers from the Baptist, Presbyterian, and Christian & Missionary Alliance churches. The Assemblies of God stance on entire sanctification is one of progressive sanctification from their Baptistic roots. In fact, the only real differences between Southern Baptist and the Assemblies of God is their view on Spirit-Baptism and eternal security. The Assemblies of God is Arminian in its theology but not Wesleyan in many other points of doctrine.

Useful for ministers and laypeople 6 Aug. 2013
By Cameron - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are not many books that I read and reread nor reread a third time. However, Bible Doctrines by William Menzies is one of those books. No, it's not necessarily because it contains a riveting story or dialogue. In fact, it can be somewhat theologically dense; but, the book is invaluable. I first read through this book in Bible college as a syllabus requirement. Okay. Fine. I'll read it. I read it through a second time as a prepared for my licensing in the Assemblies of God. I absorbed it more. I understood its importance. I recently completed my third reading as I prepare for ordination. And, honestly, it is exciting. Yes, it's theology and doctrine, but it's founded in Scripture. It offers a concise understanding of the Pentecostal experience.

Throughout the book, Menzies walks us through the 16 Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God and offers a more in-depth study as the chapter continues. By the end of the book, you will have a firmer understanding on theological topics such as the authoritative rule, the One True God, the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the fall of man, the salvation of man, the ordinances of the Church, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit, sanctification, the Church and its mission, the ministry, divine healing, the blessed hope, the millennial reign of Christ, the final judgment, and the new heavens and the new earth. You might be exhausted just reading the list, and, yet, Menzies takes these theological issues and breaks them into chewable portions. At the conclusion of the book, a glossary and index are also provided for easier study. I can't recommend this book enough. If you are studying for the ministry, you have to get this. If you are a layperson searching out more information on the Pentecostal perspective, this is the book to pick up.

Exposition of Pentecostal Bible Doctrines 25 Oct. 2007
By Zachary Crawford - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book serves as an exposition of essential Pentecostal doctrines from an Assemblies of God perspective and seemingly tries to modernize what PC Nelson previously accomplished with his writing(s). This book does leave out some things that I was hoping to see that would show how the Assemblies of God doctrines and organization developed, which other reviewers identified. Also, there are some differences in the Tenets of Faith in PC Nelson's classic "Bible Doctrines" and this one. Overall, there are some good things about this book and it can adapted fairly easily for discipleship / new believer bible study materials. Both the authors are well respected in the Pentecostal community, especially the Assemblies of God and have written more definitive works. Buy this book for some good nuggets and to use for study questions (at the end of each chapter) that can be used in a Bible Study setting.

Exactly as ordered 10 Aug. 2010
By Tony Richie - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got exactly what I ordered in this one. Thanks! Also, I've found it to be an excellent introductory level text on Pentecostal doctrines. It is especially helpful regarding the accepted systematic theology categories but includes Pentecostal perspectives throughout as well as specific sections. I recommend it to serious students or interested inquirers regarding Pentecostalism.
