God Has Always Done Miracles in His Church ~ and Still Does!
The Holy Spirit has never left the Church and neither have His supernatural gifts and manifestations. They have been available in every century ~ from the days of the Apostolic Fathers, to the desert monks of Egypt and Syria, to the missionary outreaches of the Middle Ages, to the Reformation era and the awakenings and revivals that followed, to the Pentecostal explosion of the Twentieth Century and the increase of signs and wonders in the Twenty-first.
Miracles, healings, deliverances, prophecies, dreams, visions ~ even raising the dead! ~ have all been in operation throughout the history of the Church. Anglicans, Baptists, Catholics, Congregationalists, Lutherans, Methodists, Moravians, Presbyterians, Quakers and many others have experienced the supernatural gifts and workings of the Spirit over the centuries.
Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church gathers up numerous accounts from a variety of historical sources and provides a handy reference for those who want to know more about:
* How the Church has understood and operated in the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit at various times in history.
* Why the gifts and miracles were more frequently in manifestation in some eras than in others.
* The many ways the Church has ministered in healing and deliverance.
* How the Holy Spirit manifested in great revivals.
* How the river of gifts and miracles continues to flow today.
"Jeff Doles' Miracles and Manifestations is an outstanding collection of original documents which chronicle the “greater works” Jesus promised to his followers throughout church history. Doles unearths a breadth of material, some of which is not well known in the scholarly world. This work is equally useful both to the theologian and to the devotional reader." ~ Jon Ruthven, Professor Emeritus at Regent University School of Divinity.
"Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church is an excellent resource for any student of the Bible. Jeff Doles has done a masterful job of relating historical facts in a compendium that is actually both easy to read and impacting. He clearly debunks the theory that miracles and manifestations of the Holy Spirit ceased when the apostles died or when the New Testament canon was completed. This book is well worth reading. You will be amazed at how much was going on in the church, even during what we call the 'Dark Ages.' You may also be surprised at the number of supernatural events that occurred during the ministry of Reformers and Revivalists since those dark ages.” ~ Ben R. Peters, Kingdom Sending Center
"I have seen and own a large number of books on the manifested power of God through Church history. But I have never seen such a complete collection in one volume as is in Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church, by Jeff Doles. If you have a school, teach church history, teach on the power of God, have interest or know someone who does, this is the only book you'll need on the subject. It is like a chronological encyclopedia of the Holy Spirit's working in church history." ~ Frank DeCenso, author, Amazed by the Power of God, and God’s Supernatural Power in You
"In Miracles and Manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the History of the Church, Jeff Doles brings insight to the work of miracles, signs and wonders. I love this book! It is fascinating, a must for anyone who wants to move in miracles. Such faith building! You will be ignited to go and do the works of the Lord." ~ Theresa Phillips, Chicago Prophetic Voice
