"upside-down" thesis for sake of enlightenment. Author earned PhD from University of Minnesota, speaks four languages and taught 30 years in African context. He writes as an anthropologist about the burgeoning revival of charismatic Christianity world-wide now numbering 770 million adherents. He asks: Why would God have chosen the seemingly unreasonable, divisive, illogical fact of glossolalia as His empowerment for witness? Chapters include: The phenomenon's critics; Testimonials from former deniers; Early movement's writers; God's model of risk-taking in scripture; Examples of duplication of Acts 2 today; God's method of restraint, submission, surrender and success through loss.
