Celebrating Diversity--Embracing Empowerment--Without Compromise

In his book "Baptized in the Spirit--God's Presence Resting Upon You with Power" Randy Clark, presents a definitive study on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The book is the culmination of years of study, application, and personal experience in areas operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, prophecies, the gift of tongues, and the gift of impartation. Dr. Clark understands the depth of diversity and opinions prevalent today in Apostolic teaching and Pneumatology.

The book is divided into four parts:

Part One describes and defines the Scriptural, historical, and theological, perspectives of six different positions taken on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Part Two provides an introduction to the subject of experiencing the baptism of the Spirit, receiving the baptism, and evidences of the baptism. Clark shares his own story as well as the personal testimonies of a broad spectrum of Christian leaders from different eras and backgrounds to illustrate how individual experiences vary. These stories attest that baptisms have occurred at the time of salvation, deliverance, or surrender.

In Part Three, Dr. Jon Ruthven, a mentor of Clark, presents "A New Biblical Understanding of the Sprit." Ruthven compares Theological traditions on the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the central mission and message of Jesus on the Holy Spirit as found in the four Gospels.

Part Four covers issues of holiness, equipping, revival, and more testimonies of Holy Spirit Baptism.

Clark delivers a masterful, Biblically based, historically accurate, and theologically sound resource that crosses denominational positions. "Baptized in the Spirit--God's Presence Resting Upon You with Power" is destined to become required reading in seminaries, leadership workshops, and seminars. Theological Professors, Pulpit Ministers, and Bible Teachers, professional and lay, will appreciate Clark's thorough research, documentation, detailed chapter end-notes, and extensive bibliography.

Randy Clark founder of Global Awakening earned a DMin from United Theological Seminary and is highly recognized by his peers for his credibility and integrity. He is in demand as an speaker, in Bible conferences, international missions, and as a leader in the Apostolic movement.
