William and Robert Menzies: Spirit and Power, Empowered for Witness, and The Development Of Early Christian Pneumatology


The three publications of Menzies and especially Spirit and Power challenge every believer to reassess their view of the baptism in the Spirit and just what it means to be empowered by the Spirit. While the main purpose is power to witness (Acts 1:5,8) there is a depth of teaching to be gleaned from scripture (both Old and New Testament). Pentecostal and charismatics will be challenged to both broaden and deepen their understanding of this whole area. If the truth were admitted, few understand the basis for their beliefs beyond a few verses of scripture, and have difficulty dialoguing with those who are of a different persuasion. Now they have an excellent resource that models how to share with those who disagree in a way that honors everyone.
