Until the day of Pentecost, the disciples, who had received, by the outbreathing of Christ, the indwelling Spirit, waited for His coming "upon" them; and when that day was fully come, with the outward manifestations of sound and flame, He came. They were baptized with the Holy Ghost; and not only baptized, but "filled with the Holy Ghost."-from Plain Papers on the Doctrine of the Holy SpiritIn the late 19th century, a new fascination with Pentecostalism gripped American Christianity, one that continues to this day to influence fundamentalist interpretations of the Bible. This 1899 book, a literal reading of Scripture, offers Christians the path to a direct relationship with the Holy Spirit. From the nature of this being to the absolute necessity of all Christians to commune with it, this is a vital historical work that all students of the Bible will want to read.OF INTEREST TO: Bible-study groups, seekers after wisdomAUTHOR BIO: American clergyman CYRUS INGERSOLL SCOFIELD (1843-1921), a Civil War veteran who fought for the Confederacy, was a lawyer until his evangelical conversion in 1879, after which his life was consumed with preaching and missionary work.
