The Full Vision of Pentecost constructs a complete story of Pentecost, helping readers understand the role of the local church using the events of Pentecost. With an eye for relevant Old Testament prophecies and paying close attention to the New Testament narrative, Charles Roads draws insights from the lives of Hudson Taylor, Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley, George Whitefield, and many others as he reconstructs and interprets the event of Pentecost for the modern church. By seeing the church at Pentecost as a model for local churches today, Roads helps Christians to see how individual churches ultimately influence the church worldwide.
