Kregel Publications, 2002 M11 1 - 175 páginas
Discussions and disagreements rage among Christians over the nature and place of the gift of tongues. Few writers are more qualified to examine the biblical evidence concerning this topic than Dr. Merrill F. Unger, one of last century's most widely recognized Bible scholars and seminary professors. Dr. Unger's concise but thorough examination of all relevant New Testament passages and the evidence of church history will help Christian readers answer questions such as: Is the practice still valid? What positive use or blessing does it have? Does its popularity in modern charismatic circles commend it to the church in general? Begins with a definition of terms to avoid misunderstandings Evenhandedly discusses the scriptural, historical, and modern application of the gift of tongues Acclaimed classic on the topic.
