In Why I Am a Pentecostal, Robert Menzies lays out clear, compelling, and concise truths about the relevance of the Pentecostal experience for Christ’s followers today, tomorrow, and the day after that. He does not agonize over whether this experience is right or wrong… he says simply that the story of Pentecost found in the book of Acts is the story of every believer. With a keen intellectual presentation that is both informative and intriguing, he explains that Pentecostalism is Christ-centered and Bible-based. It is the model for the mission of the church. Furthermore, he reiterates, “It is impossible to understand Pentecostals apart from this basic, fundamental fact.” By presenting in depth research in a way that is easily accessible, Menzies succeeds in helping readers understand what it means to be a Pentecostal. “Pentecostals,” he says, “are people of the book. While they encourage spiritual experience, they do so with a constant eye to Scripture.” The book provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for Pentecostalism.
