This is a long awaited reprint of a modern classic, first published by Hodder & Stoughton. The author provides a clear, detailed exposition on the topic of baptism in the Holy Spirit, asking how, when and why the Holy Spirit is received.David Pawson describes eight essential elements in Spirit baptism. He maintains that the sacramental, evangelical and pentecostal streams of Christianity have all failed to do justice to this biblical doctrine. In particular, its dual purpose of purity and power, for salvation and service, need to be recovered if we are to become a truly apostolic church in the twenty-first century.
