Tongues Revisited

By Renton Maclachlan.

Renton recently did a couple of lectures in Wellington RC which were rather helpful. He has stood for CHP and runs a wee radio station in Porirua challenging the secular humanist worldview 24/7. 

The thesis of Tongues Revisited: A Third Way is:

Biblical Tongues are normal human languages, normally learnt and normally spoken.

I’ve just about finished the book – I’m halfway through the copious (and very interesting) footnotes. I’m not 100% convinced that his thesis is correct, but any reservations I have are not due to poor arguments on his part, but only the weight of orthodox scholarship which disagrees with him. A well-argued reply to the arguments presented in the book would be something worth reading.

The book is about $30. It would be worth buying a copy just to support this guy’s work. I recommend this book to anyone who has any involvement at all with our Charismatic & Pentecostal brothers.
