What is it about?

Weaver demonstrates that Baptists and those from within the Holiness, Pentecostal and Charismatic traditions have more history and core values in common than most people may realize. He also argues that Baptists are not shy about the Holy Spirit. Instead, they have vigorously sought to understand and be sensitive to the work of the Holy Spirit.

Why is it important?

This book review provides an overview of the themes and design of C. Douglas Weaver's book, "Baptists and the Holy Spirit: The Contested History with Holiness-Pentecostal-Charismatic Movements," from a Holiness-Pentecostal perspective. It also explains the themes and organizational structure of the book and it's potential value to students of Baptist, Holiness-Pentecostal and Charismatic history.


I believe that "Baptists and the Holy Spirit" will be a valuable resource for historians of Baptist history and historians of the Holiness-Pentecostal and Charismatic movements. It was certainly an interesting book to read and review. I consider it an asset to my book collection and to my work as an archivist, researcher and Pentecostal heritage educator of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church.
