From the Back Cover

'Larry Hart's Truth Aflame brings together charismatic renewal and classic evangelical faith better than anything I have read. An important contribution to the contemporary renaissance in systematic theology!' Timothy George Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University, Executive Editor of Christianity Today As the Pentecostal/charismatic movement continues to grow, so does the need for solid theological resources for its members. While there are many volumes of systematic theology available, very few are written from a distinctly charismatic perspective. Truth Aflame seeks to meet that need. While academically sound, Truth Aflame is written with a practical, pastoral flavor. Larry Hart defines systematic theology as the process of taking what the Bible teaches and relating it to contemporary questions and knowledge. His passion for the subject is evident: he is concerned that the reader both grasps the magnificence of the study of God and allows these great truths to be transformative. This Truth, then---liberating, enlivening, and transforming Truth---becomes central to the ongoing renewal of the church that we are seeing in our day. Dr. Hart treats each of the traditional categories---revelation, God, creation, humanity, sin, Christ, salvation, the church, and last things---from a Pentecostal/charismatic perspective. He addresses other theological viewpoints but does not get bogged down in analysis and rebuttal. Further, he seeks to build bridges of understanding to those evangelicals outside the charismatic tradition. Clear, succinct, and readable, this revised and updated edition of Truth Aflame is well-suited not only for students, but for anyone desiring a greater understanding of Pentecostal/charismatic theology.

I have studied under Larry Hart and recommend him both as a teacher and writer. I like the readability of this book. It is easy to understand and follow as well as is a smooth read. I have trenched through some of the larger works and find them a labor to read.

Hart is more grounded in Scripture than in philosophy or reason. You don't have to read a page of philosophical gymnastics to read a sentence of conclusion. It appears he attempts to synthesize his Baptist background with his Charismatic experience. I find it more to be a pendulum swing of one to the other. At least he is makes it clear from what position he is speaking. His sources are also well documented and annotated. I think this work is a good bridge between seminary and the pew.

I had to buy this book for class. Amazon always has cheaper books than my school so I always order from amazon. The book is good, no complaints there. I did find this book easier to read than other theology books in the past.

I am now into my third year in Bible College and I have a number of theology books on my shelves, but this one takes the biscuit. It is a scholarly book without being written in unreadable and dry academic lingo. It is so readable that I sat down and read the first 134 pages in one sitting, word for word. Which is kind of unusual, seeing that this is not some thriller or moving novel!

What's more, it throws light on some scripture that I hadn't connected the dots with before. I am pretty sure the Holy Spirit was with the author throughout writing this book. The Divine Hand had to have played a part! It is so good I think every bible college student, pastor, cell group leader, in fact every Christian, should have one.

Larry Hart not only makes an effort to explain systematic theology in an easy o understand way, but his understanding of Scripture and Tradition is accurate and not influenced by the infections in academia to take a liberal, albeit incorrect,view of scripture. Hart is an excellent scholar and bible teacher...I highly reccomnd this volume....its the best of conservative and charismatic theology as one!

Desiring to better understand my Christian religion I purchased this book and found it better than other theology books. Dr. Hart's ability to translate complex theological issues into something that is understandable is helpful. I also enjoy how he connects modern day and historical church figures with various theological belief systems. The book is well written and would be enjoyed and benificial for those who are novices or those who are theological trained.

This is an exceptionally practical work. Dr. Hart parses complex issues in common language, wraps it with practical garb for individuals who are serious students of the word. He does it is such a way that both the average Joe and the more learned theologian is edified.
