    1. This book is actually edited by M. James Sawyer and Daniel Wallace. Quite a few authors contribute the chapters. The title of this book is much more provocative than the actual contents! But it is a great collection of essays by several authors trying to bring some balance back to the role of the Spirit in non-“Charismatic,” cessationist (meaning sign gifts have ceased) churches. The opening question is: If the Spirit did not die at the end of the first century, what is He doing today? The b [...]
