William De Arteaga: Quenching the Spirit

Quenching the Spirit seems to be two books at once. It is, to be sure, an excellent defense of the gifts. De Arteaga brilliantly thumbed through history, identifying both the churches attitude and the world’s response. That in itself makes this an important book, one that the entire church would do well to read. At one point, however, the book became a defense of the Word of Faith movement, which De Arteaga almost equates with the charismatic renewal itself. A broader view of the charismatic movement would have made this work more helpful in refuting critics of the charismatic renewal. Nevertheless, Quenching stands as one of the most thorough and well researched defenses of the  contemporary operation of the gifts. I highly recommend this book.
