The growth of the Charismatic Movement of the 1960s sparked a period of intense debate in Churches of Christ concerning how the Holy Spirit was involved in the Christian life. Some argued that the Spirit worked only through Scripture while others argued that the Spirit worked in some nonmiraculous ways apart from Scripture. This essay will focus on the debate as it played out in the Firm Foundation and will explore how the different interpretations of the Charismatic Movements significance for Churches of Christ shaped the debate.
