Great Resources for Charismatic Theology

books460In light of a recent conference (I share here and here), I’ve been blogging a bit more about various issues on continuationist/charismatic theology – the belief that all gifts of God are still available today, just as they were for the early church we read about in the New Testament.

So I thought I would list 20 books that might be worth reading. They are not in any particular order of what I consider best. Rather, they are in alphabetical order by the author’s last name.

Some of them are commentary-like. Some of them are theologically driven. Some of them are more devotional. Some of them provide testimonies. And some of them are a conglomeration of these categories.

I hope they provide some good food for thought.

  1. Hi Scott
    Thanks for that. I was encouraged that I had read most of those but also I would recommend some others. Tom Smail’s work is good as in ‘Reflected glory’ and ‘Power of love or love of power’. Also in the brilliant class is Anthony Thiselton’s ‘The Holy Spirit – in Biblical teaching, through the centuries and today’!
