Well John Stott gives an excellent explanation from the Bible about what it really means to be filled with the Spirit. His clear & simple presentation is short yet thorough, and he also exposes some of the myths and misconceptions that surround our churches today.
Approximately 100 pages you could read this book in a few hours, yet I would argue this is essential reading for anyone who is wrestling with these issues. Every church leader should read it!
Stott is unfortunately, though a great defender of the central thrust of the Gospel, one of those modern-day teachers who makes the Church within his sphere of influence like that of Laodicea - though he has undoubtedly written some great works, he has failed to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches today, trading rather on the strength of his reputation.
While there is a little more intellectual honesty in Stott's examination of Acts & the doctrinal conclusions that might be drawn from it than that of the traditional Pentecostal churches, this honesty is not completely watertight and betrays his own prejudice in places.
Please do not be held back by the "fullness" described by Stott in this work. Although what he describes are wonderful things, do not let those things conceal from sight the remainder of what God has for you. While Stott has a lot of wisdom on many subjects, this, unfortunately, is one area in which he misses the mark by a long shot. I recommend that you don't bother reading it.
