Product Description:

This book was first published in 1975 as The Battle for the Bible. It has lost none of its relevance in the intervening years, for the attack on the supremacy and sufficiency of Scripture, addressed so clearly in these pages, still continues unabated. Much false teaching concerning the continued validity of the sign gifts is still propagated, and much confusion still exists about their role in the twenty-first century. This book provides a clear and scriptural antidote to this confusion, simply and coherently laying out the teaching of Scripture concerning the purpose of the sign gifts, and the proofs of their cessation. Partial or Perfect encourages us to go back to the Bible, to rejoice afresh in the sufficiency of God's Word and its unique value as the only guide for God's people.

Partial or Perfect - By Raymond H. Saxe

This small format book of 168 pages is a worthwhile read for anyone wanting to gain a clear understanding of the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. This book supplements the teaching in Frank McConnell's book The Holy Spirit, but adds significant details that are essential to a complete understanding of the truth.

The first eight chapters deal with the completeness of Scripture and give a detailed explanation of 'When that which is perfect is come' 1 Cor.13:10. Dr Saxe argues convincingly for the 66 books as the completed Scriptures; he also shows that since the Word of God is complete, there is now no place for further revelation in prophecy or knowledge.

The last eight chapters deal specifically with the question of tongues. The author shows, in easy to follow arguments, that since the Bible is the final revelation of God to men there is no need for tongues " they were a special gift given at the commencement of the dispensation and have now ceased to function. The book is written in a lucid and engaging style. It defends the Bible as being the compete revelation from God and thus a firm foundation for our faith.

Dr Saxe has been retired from active ministry for some years now and lives in the USA.
