The Glorious Disturbance refers to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost when the church was launched. It is called the baptism with the Holy Spirit-and it is still available today. In fact, the twentieth century has been called "the century of the Holy Spirit" because the movement in the church worldwide mirrors the initial release of the Holy Spirit on God's people. This present-day baptism has touched more than five hundred million people, generating huge interest in how Christians can experience the same empowerment. Tackling the subject with thorough biblical scholarship and a reader-friendly style, Ernest Gentile helps Christians of all backgrounds understand Holy Spirit baptism more clearly. Is it real? Is it necessary? And what about speaking in tongues? Gentile answers these questions and many more. He shows how important Spirit baptism was in the life of Jesus and in the early church. And he demonstrates scripturally that the empowerment of the Spirit isn't just for biblical times or certain groups of Christians; it's for every one of us.

From the Back Cover:

Receive the amazing gift of the Spirit The power of the Holy Spirit recorded in the book of Acts is available today to any Christian who asks. Sometimes misunderstood, however, Holy Spirit baptism remains controversial among some Christians. They wonder, "Is it real?" "Is it necessary?" And even, "Isn't it kind of strange?" In The Glorious Disturbance, Ernest Gentile unveils the beauty and power of the baptism with the Holy Spirit and explains why God wants to give this gift to all Christians. He shows how Spirit baptism is the vital foundation to continuing Christ's work on earth. And he describes the awesome transformation that occurs when people follow Jesus in receiving this marvelous gift. "Readers will appreciate Mr. Gentile's scholarly approach to a major question within the Body of Christ. He enthusiastically presents compelling evidence for The Gift that is available to every believer."--Ted Haggard, senior pastor, New Life Church, Colorado Springs "An excellent, biblically based introduction for anyone seeking to know about the baptism with the Spirit."--Cecil M. Robeck Jr., professor of church history and ecumenics, Fuller Theological Seminary "Ernest Gentile speaks as a pastor with more than forty years of experience, as a scholar and a disciplined man of skilled research, and from personal experience."--Frank Damazio, senior pastor, City Bible Church, Portland
