Convergence addresses the chasm that often appears between evangelical groups—the tension between adherence to the Word or the Spirit, the mind or affection, principle or passion. With the power of Scripture and the evidence from his own life experiences, author Sam Storms seeks to heal the breach between these false dichotomies, bringing together the written Word and theological reflection with the evangelistic zeal of the charismatic experience.
