Until recent years, the charismatic movement involving glossolalia, or speaking in tongues, was mostly confined to storefront churches and practiced by Holy Rollers. Now tongues speaking has invaded the mainline respectable protestant churches and even Roman Catholicism-a development that would have seemed impossible only a few years ago.
Does modern tongues speaking exactly reproduce the Pentecostal experience of the early Christian church? Are tongues the same as foreign languages? Is tongues speaking always a supernatural gift of the Holy Spirit? Is the gift of tongues practiced by members of other world religions besides Christianity?
These and many other fascinating questions find clear answers in Charisma of the Spirit.
