This classic, first published in 1968, is an easy to understand book explaining the purpose and meaning that God had in mind when He appointed the gift of tongues for the church. Written for lay Christians, it discusses speaking in tongues as a sign, as a gift, and as a ministry, as well as answering the question many Christians ask: "Is speaking in tongues for me?" The Christian Research Institute called it "an excellent study on this gift: whether you agree or disagree, this book will answer many questions people are asking today." The book includes a new introduction from the author, a recognized leader in the renewal movement.
