Strangers To Fire: When Tradition Trumps Scripture, reviewed by Tony Richie

I’ll wrap up this review lest it become too lengthy itself. By the way, in spite of Graves’ comment about Elbert having the last chapter all has not been said yet. An Afterword presses still further the biblical argument (regarding Ephesians 2:20) as well a Postscript. The Postscript may reveal the real will behind this book. It is basically an altar call for those interested in receiving the Spirit baptism! Somehow that seems to me as it should be! Amen?
