New book “Tongues on Fire” released by the Pentecostal Church

The book – Tongues of Fire

Under the shelf of Religion, one may not find enough books about the topic, and especially if it is about Montserrat. The Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church has just released information on a book written by Sir Howard Fergus.

In a release on Tuesday, July 31, 2012, the Montserrat District of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies said it has just released a book with the Title “TONGUES ON FIRE: A HISTORY OF THE PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT OF MONTSERRAT”.

It was written to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Pentecostal work in the Island. It was pioneered by a lady, Laurencina Joseph who in 1905 was led and inspired to come to Montserrat, an Island about which she had hitherto known nothing.  The foundations which she laid developed into an island-wide movement which became the cradle of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies with headquarters in Trinidad.

The book records the work of other pioneers such as Joseph Jephunney Fenton of Cudjoe Head, Michael Morgan and Alfred Bailey Mulcare, some of whom suffered persecution;  and deals with the Pentecostal diaspora across the islands, in the USA and in England. The volume also highlights the work of another pioneering Pentecostal woman, Mary Hannah Ryan, popularly known as Sister Hannah who started the work of The Church of God Of Prophecy in the island around 1928.

The book was written by Dr. Howard Fergus and is available at the Brades Pentecostal Church office. It is regarded as an important addition to the history of religion in Montserrat
