The Alliance is supernatural, or it is nothing! – early Christian & Missionary Alliance leaders / / Holy laughter, dreams, visions, speaking in tongues, prophecy; exuberant worship, divine healing, spiritual warfare, deliverance from demonic oppression: Are these gaudy excesses of counterfeit revival, to be utterly rejected? Or gold-bearing ore of Holy Spirit empowerment the church needs today? Nuggets of Genuine Gold shows how outstanding early C&MA and other leaders found the mother lode of genuine manifestations of the Holy Spirit that embodied gospel truth.
This treasury of firsthand testimony and wise teaching:
- compiles teaching on the Spirit-filled life from Robert Jaffray, A.B. Simpson, F.F. Bosworth, A.W. Tozer, and many others
- organizes nearly 700 documented nuggets of spiritual gold into a unique handbook on the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit
- publishes many previously little-known testimonies to life-giving manifestations of the Holy Spirit
- reveals keys to discerning true, false, and mixed manifestations
- explains important Alliance teachings, such as the sanctifying baptism in the Spirit; the end-time "latter rain" of apostolic power; and the already-but-not-yet reality of the kingdom of God Complete with discussion questions and lists of additional resources, Nuggets of Genuine Gold is perfect for personal, small-group, church-membership, and leadership study and as an easy-to-use handbook on the Holy Spirit.
