    Sister there is nothing better to use than the scriptures you can’t go wrong. I find books to include to much personal opinions. You will do fine pray and go at he will guide you.

    For those of you saying “The Bible” I think that went without saying. Looking to other books to help understand how to formulate a lesson plan is NOT a bad thing. In fact perhaps the person teaching will encounter some of the arguments of people like Dunn who are against modern usage of the gifts. It is good to have the use of other spirit filled people who God has used to write these other books that have been suggested.

    There’s also a very interesting larger study on the The psychology of speaking in tongues (excerpt review found here) http://www.psychohistorian.org/display_article.php?id=200508010351_speaking_in_tongues.content

    The “Why Tongues?” was a mini book on the subject. The book I posted earlier is a compilation of his writings on the subject of tongues and is much more comprehensive, 368 pages in length.

    It is very simple, HE is God’s Spirit sent to us for a Teacher, Comforter and Guide, Sweet Holy Ghost!!! :)…..All you have to do is yield to him and if you have a Clean Temple HE will come in and abide, and the evidence that HE has come in is that HE will speak through you. 🙂

    It is also a good book if on specific tongues topic. “Why Tongues: initial evidence doctrine in North American Pentecostal churches” by Kenneth Richard Walters, Jr. Published by Deo Publishing, 2016. ISSN 0966 7393.

    As one who thinks he identifies with a Classical Pentecostal understanding, I believe that a suitable order for the teaching is: The Person and work of the Holy Spirit, The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit (including speaking in tongues). You may question the order if you wish. And, with respect to “speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance,” I do see this as part of a Classical Pentecostal position. DEW

    I did my doctoral thesis on private prayer and discovered what I call the Apostolic Prayer Paradigm (see illustration below) The Apostles prayed in three modes: 1) praying the scriptures, 2) conversing with God, and 3) praying in the Spirit. Two of these were a part of the Old Covenant while praying in the Spirit is strictly New Covenant prayer. It helps if we thinking of “speaking in tongues” as prayer and not just speech. I was challenged by my thesis adviser to prove this and I found it easy to do. Every mention of tongues is always in a prayer or worship context. If we think of “praying in the Spirit” rather than “speaking in tongues,” this becomes much clearer. All speech isn’t prayer! Following are some helpful links Here is more detail on the Apostolic Prayer Paradigm: Here is more detail on New Covenant Prayer:

    not sure if all the working and not working links you posted Steve Phifer even answer the OP question Can you pls systematize them in a paragraph type answer to follow the tread

      I struck the first article since it dealt with the relationship between private prayer and public worship. The second article is directly on the issue of prayer in the Spirit and I would like for it to remain as a reference. It is part of a series dealing with prayer in general and prayer in tongues in particular. I checked this link and it works for me. https://stevephifer.com/congregation-3/

    Troy Day Are you familiar with “The Charismatic Theology of St. Luke” by Roger Stronstad? It is an excellent defense of the traditional Pentecostal position of tongues and Spirit baptism. Interestingly, Clark Pinnock wrote the Foreword.

    Eddie L. Hyatt pls note a lady in the group asked the OP not myself but YES I’ve dialogued with Stronstad back in my day He has a very orthodox even eastern view of the baptism infilling and I pleased to have ready all his 6 books I’ve differed from his interpretation on Fee vs Menzies.in the 90s but this is just my personal opinion I regret not meeting Pinnock when I still could

      Troy Day I understand. I recall those discussions at the SPS gatherings back then.

      Eddie L. Hyatt You are correct Though SPS does not release their archived papers as they should I understand profiting from 5-6 yr old papers but 30-40 yrs old research should be made public among other Pentecostal archives
