W.H. Turner, IPHC Missionary, Pastor, Evangelist

An overview of one of his small books:

Turner, W.H. 2,000 Years of Pentecost. Franklin Springs, Ga: W.H. Turner and the Publishing House of the P.H. Church, 1947.

In the “foreward” (sic), Turner states a hope that similar small books will become a useful literature tool for Pentecostal evangelism.

This brief book, one of many written by Turner, was about sixty-two pages. The topics covered were surprisingly broad and the coverage quite inclusive. The chapters were “Pentecost in the Promises”, “Pentecost in the Acts of the Apostles”, all cover the basic New Testament verses dealing with the birth of the Church and the arrival of the promised “Comforter” who provided motivation to the disciples in the book of Acts. “Pentecost in the Post-Apostolic Age”, covers several notable instances of deeper spiritual experiences among the Early Church Fathers and other leaders. “Pentecost in the Middle Ages”, examines the spiritual experiences of the Waldenese and the Albigenese, the Medicant Friars, the Quakers, and the Methodists. “Pentecost in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries”, continues by looking at Thomas Walsh, Martin Luther, Vincent Ferrer, Edward Irving and the MacDonalds. “Pentecost in Modern Times”, explores the Holiness roots of the Pentecostal movement and the early Tennessee, Kansas, and California origins. It also touches on leaders in other cultures, including Pandita Ramabi of India. While “Pentecost in the Region Beyond” details the work across the globe.

A photo of the Turners, who served as missionaries of the IPHC to China for many years, is found at the IPHC website < http://www.pctii.org/arc/images.html>. They were interred for almost 2 years by the Japanese in WW2.

Other titles listed in the back of the book include:
Pioneering in China
Pentecost and Tongues
The Relationship of the Pastor to Foreign Missions
Six Thousand Years of Tithing
I was a Prisoner of the Japanese
