Speaking in tongues is one of Pentecostalism’s most distinctive practices. And yet, in his doctoral research, Timothy Laurito found that “a majority of self-identified Pentecostal participants did not feel like they had even been adequately taught about speaking in tongues.” He goes on to argue that this fact “should be of concern for Pentecostals.”
In this episode of the Influence Podcast, I’m talking to Timothy Laurito about how pastors and other church leaders can help people understand glossolalia from a multidisciplinary perspective. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.
Timothy Laurito is an ordained Assemblies of God minister, assistant pastor at Faith Tabernacle in Denton, Texas, and an adjunct professor at Northpoint Bible College and Graduate School. He is author of Speaking in Tongues: A Multidisciplinary Defense, published by Wipf & Stock.
