What He Did

Dr. Stanford Linzey rededicated his life to Jesus christ as a 21-year-old sailor through the influence of his soon-to-be wife Dr. Verna Hall Linzey. Through the influence of Verna and her family, including the Latter Rain Movement leader Franklin Hall and their Pentecostal Church of God step father, Rev. Francis L. Doyle, Stan, reared in a Southern Baptist home, became a polished author, speaker, chaplain, and evangelist. 

“An exciting handbook on the Holy Spirit…a bridge-builder between old-time Pentecostals and those who are fresh in the Spirit from all other backgrounds.”
Pat Boone

“Stanford E. Linzey’s book on Baptism in the Spirit is a delight to read. His communication style leaves no stone unturned and no one guessing as to what he just said. Anyone who wants to truly ‘Get It’ needs to read what he says about Spirit baptism. Captain Linzey is both humorous in his directness, yet sincere in his approach.”
