Overview

What is the nature and function of the Pentecostal/Charismatic gift of speaking in tongues? Charismatic Glossolalia aims to answer this question. Drawing on detailed observations and interviews with people who themselves speak in tongues, as well as survey data, Cartledge presents explanations on the meaning of this gift for both the participants and their churches. Cartledge argues that an understanding of the gift of speaking in tongues emerges as a symbol of divine-human encounter, especially associated with the context of prayer and worship and symbolising a sense of beauty, awe, power, intimacy and faith-building. In theological terms, speaking in tongues may be described as trinitarian, sacramental and as demonstrating an important feature of the Kingdom of God. An extensive literature review considers material from the New Testament, Pentecostal and Charismatic theology, and the behavioural and social sciences. This book offers a unique contribution to Pentecostal and Charismatic scholarship, as well as the emerging scholarly tradition of Practical Theology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Revising his doctoral dissertation (no date or institution noted), Cartledge (St. John's College, Durham, England) investigates the nature of charismatic glossolalia<-->speaking in tongues<-->and its function within the New Church movement in Britain. He applies the empirical-theological methodology of Johannes A. van der Ven to results of a questionnaire survey of Charismatic churches in the Merseyside area, and draws a number of conclusions about the practice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From The Critics
Given the exciting and energetic spread of Charismatic Christianity across the world, the systematic empirical exploration of a fundamental aspect of Charismatic practice (speaking in tongues) is long overdue. Mark Cartledge's scholarly and readable text provides a foundational study that future readers and scholars will not be able to ignore. William K. Kay Mark Cartledge has put us all in his debt. This work crystallises his methodologically innovative, sure-footed, and theologically perceptive, analysis of glossolalia. This is an important model for all future studies of religious experience in the contempory scene. Max Turner, London Bible College, UK
