The book was well written and simple enough to understand.
Eliot Lugo Hernandez
The Kindle version is full of typos some of which make a word completely unrecognizable, therefore I would recommend the paperback edition.

Many today wonder if R.A. Torrey were alive would he identify himself with the charismatic movement or would he avoid the termonology? I believe he would probably not be a charismatic and would probably even be an anti-charismatic from some of his views on the early Pentecostals. However, this book will make you wonder yourself.

In this work, Torrey gives his biblical understanding of the second work of grace with the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Torrey believes that every Christian receives the Spirit at salvation (Romans 8:9) but not every Christian is baptized with the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49). He believes the "Promise of the Father" (Acts 1:4) is for every Christian who will tarry and pray for the Baptism (Luke 11:13).

Ironically, Torrey's book is now widely read by Pentecostals because of his second work teaching. Torrey's understanding came from his revivalist views along with D.L. Moody and other late 19th century revivalist. It set the stage for the early charismatic movement although Torrey distinced himself from the early Pentecostals as did A.B. Simpson.

Overall I would highly recommend you reading this book even if you differ with Torrey's baptism language (filled vs. baptized) or his second work of grace view. The book does offer a challenge to us to be used mightily by God (Acts 1:8) and to trust in the power of the Holy Spirit and not the strength or wisdom of men (1 Cor. 2:1-5).

Torrey's "The Baptism with the Holy Spirit" is straight-forward, easy to read (and it doesn't take long to read it either), clear and exciting. Taken from Scripture, the book offers life-changing truths that no christian can do without. If you desire to experience the abundant life promised by Jesus; if you're hungry for God and willing to give everything to Him and receive everything He desires to give you, or if you want to understand and/or receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I highly recommend this book.

I'll start with my only complaint and that is on the Kindle version of this book. The Kindle version is full of typos some of which make a word completely unrecognizable, therefore I would recommend the paperback edition. I cut the Kindle version some slack because it was only $1.

The book itself is fantastic! I couldn't put it down until I finished it 2 hours later. It's a short read that is full of scripture to back up the teaching. Anyone who reads this book, who is also a believer in Christ, will have no doubt about baptism of the Holy Spirit. No questions asked. I'm sure there are many people who have received the baptism while reading this book!!! How exciting is that?!

"Baptism With The Holy Spirit", is an absolute "Ancient Treasure" of literature. R.A. Torrey 1856 - 1928. The "dash" between his birth and death, represents a life of seeking God for answers to life's questions. Physically gone, but not silenced. Torrey "Literally" continues to ministers to mankind for the Lord from Heaven. I learned more about the Holy Spirit from this little book, than I have from ANY Pentecostal pulpit in 34 years. This work is truely pure to the Holy Spirit's characteristic, and subsequent name: UNDERSTANDING!!! He continues to offer WISDOM to future generations here thru the mind and pen of R.A.Torrey. A "MUST HAVE" for all in ministry.

There is a lot of disagreement over the topic this book discusses. I am thankful that RA Torrey does a great job of presenting how the baptism with the Holy Spirit works based on what Scripture teaches.

He really does an excellent job explaining the following topics:

1. What the Baptism is and what it does

2. How the Baptism can be obtained

3. Refilling with the Holy Spirit

4. How spiritual power is lost

Given all the confusion and discussion about this doctrine, I think it is essential that Christians investigate the topic and decide what to believe. Torrey's book is an excellent starting point for those who seek to learn more.

I wanted to secure a copy of this book since it was suggested reading by the late Paris Reidhead in one of the messages on Sermon Index given by him. He said that the book about the Holy Spirit Baptism by R.A. Torrey was the clearest understanding he had ever read of this wonderful blessing and the person of God the Holy Spirit. It was out of print at the time he mentioned it so I was so glad that it is again available.
I was greatly enriched and enlightened! Reading this cleared up some misconceptions I had been taught and had believed over the years. Though saved in 1976 during the Charismatic Renewal I have not been 'comfortable' with a lot of what has been happening in the churches regarding the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and resulting manifestations.
I was so comforted by R.A. Torrey's explanation! I only wish I'd read this years ago. God's timing is perfect however so maybe it is more likely that today was the time I would really be able to appreciate the truths contained in this little book.
If you have questions, like me, and want answers, I highly suggest you read this classic and be blessed!
