70 Reasons for Speaking in Tongues

Bill Hamon (Parsons Publishing House)

Bill Hamon’s latest book, 70 Reasons for Speaking in Tongues, offers Christendom an enlightened, comprehensive and dynamic understanding of the varied spiritual benefits of believing, receiving, activating and using the gift of speaking in tongues as evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Hamon’s solid biblical teaching unveils not only deeper layers of understanding the gift of speaking in tongues, but also the Holy Spirit as a God’s gift to us—as well as both the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. Hamon also establishes faith and love as vital elements of a Spirit-filled lifestyle, rather than these being mere principles for living.

The bishop likens the Holy Spirit to a power-producing plant from which Christians are supernaturally enabled to bear the fruit of the Spirit and operate in the gifts of the Spirit. Using this analogy, he correlates embracing our personal spirit language with unlocking a never-ending reservoir of God’s Holy Spirit and power.

This transcendent read is for every believer seeking to comprehend how an active spirit language will fill him or her with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Through his thorough understanding of tongues, Hamon establishes a clear bottom line: that only through being filled with the Holy Spirit and operating in all of His manifestations can the body of Christ be empowered to carry out the works of Christ and be truly unified. read more

Multiply

Francis Chan and Mark Beuving (David C. Cook)

Francis Chan’s newest title, Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples seems at first to be a straightforward book about the imperative for making disciples of Jesus and fulfilling the Great Commission. But as you delve further into the book, it switches gears and becomes an instruction manual to a basic understanding of Scripture—with material that could be used to make disciples (including study questions and links to video commentary with Chan and pastor/author David Platt).

As you continue through the book, it occurs to you that this is a marvelous holistic presentation of the gospel. And then it comes back full circle to making disciples. So which is it: A) A book about the importance of discipleship? B) A guide to understanding the Scriptures? C) An excellent introduction to Christianity? 

The answer is: D) All of the above.

Multiply makes evident that a holistic presentation of the gospel cannot be separated from an exhortation to both evangelize and make disciples. Chan and Mark Beuving demonstrate from Genesis to Revelation how God planned to create a people for Himself, how He had a plan from the beginning to remedy humanity’s fall through Jesus, and how His followers have a part in that plan.

The Old Testament prophesies of the coming of both a perfect savior and king; the New Testament demonstrates how salvation was accomplished and how Jesus now comes to the world through the church as it proclaims the Good News.

Regardless of how Multiply is categorized, it is an exceptional teaching resource on many levels. read more
