Synopsis

John Sherrill was a skeptic as far as miracles were concerned. He lived in a suburb with his family, attended a mainstream church, and although he believed in the power of the Holy Spirit, he had never seen it manifested. Then the magazine he worked for sent him to investigate a strange biblical event that was cropping up across the country: the phenomenon of speaking in tongues. His search led him on an adventure that was to have profound personal results.

Since it was first published in 1964, They Speak with Other Tongues has sold over two and a half million copies. This Chosen classic chronicles the discovery of an investigative reporter that would ultimately change his life. As Sherrill relates the historical and biblical background of speaking in tongues, examines significant contemporary events, and shares his personal experience, he gives valuable insight into this gift of the Holy Spirit.
