comment How did Thomas Aquinas view grace as opposed to the church fathers?
To @H3br3wHamm3r81 You misunderstand the question. It is not about something man can achieve, but about how grace works in our lives, what kind of gift it is.

comment In the book of John, is the Holy Spirit not in Jesus until the dove descends on Him?
How about some exegetics to support this view?

comment What was the definition of the spiritual gift of the word of Knowledge in early pentecostalism?
I beg to disagree. Gee clearly states that he does not agree with the view expressed by Carter et al. Similarly, Carter takes issue with the view that the word of knowledge is referring to teaching. The book by Wigglesworth is a collection from sermons that he gave. So yes, he did not write a book, but the teaching in the book is from him.

OK. I am still investigating the issue and will perhaps provide a more thorough answer in time.

@warren I have edited the questions and added comments to make clear that this is not the same question as the one currently flagged as if it had the answer.

Just to make clear. The other question is about the first generation of pentecostal pioneers (1900-1940), this question is about the healing revivalists of the 50's. Thus the questions are not identical.

The healing revival is credited with making pentecostalism known to a larger audience, less sectarian and to have influenced the charismatic movement in the mainline protestant churches and the catholic church. It is also credited with changing the focus of classic pentecostalism from tongues to healing. Like it or not, but it was no "fringe". (Sources, as always, Hollenweger, Anderson + Amos Yong and a few other leading pentecostal theologians.)

@mike: (Off topic) In fact, the pentecostal movement started at lots of places, although Asuza was the most important one. It started in Armenia in the late 19th century, in India independently of Asuza street and Topeka, but in between those. Allan Anderson and Walter Hollenweger have written about this.

Pioneer of the pentecostal movement = First generation (1900-1940). Pioneer of the healing revival = later generation. I am trying to see if indeed the view about some spiritual gifts changed, and my thesis is that indeed it did and that changed occurred during the healing revival.

Please do. I might add that what I am currently doing is inquiring about the theology side of the gifts. Thus I need texts or other sources when the gift is explained, rather than demonstrated. (unless that demonstration is combined with an explanation.)

By the way, that is not the W V Grant who has been involved in financial scandals and been exposed by James Randi, but his father.
