Thomas Ball Barratt (22 July 1862, Cornwall, England – 29 January 1940, Oslo, Norway) was a British-born Norwegian pastor and founder of the Pentecostal movement in Norway.

He experienced a remarkable baptism in the Holy Spirit in his hotel room on October 7th, 1906 when the Pentecostal Revival was in full swing hundreds of miles away in California. He was in New York waiting for a boat home, probably reduced to a sense of failure, when a supernatural light was seen like a cloven tongue of was seen over his head and he received the Spirit. He later wrote a vivid account, affirming "I began to shout as loud as I could in a foreign language. I must have spoken in seven or eight languages, to judge from the various sounds and forms of speech used. I stood erect at times, preaching in one foreign tongue after another, and knew from the strength of my voice that 10,000 might easily have heard all I said. The most wonderful moment was when I burst into a beautiful baritone solo, using one of the most pure and delightful languages that I have ever heard." (He had formerly studied under the famous Norwegian composer, Grieg.) He sailed for Norway on December 8th and thereafter a Pentecostal Movement began in Scandinavia that spread like fire.

His bold testimony was met with antagonism in the churches, but he fought back with powerful oratory and convincing articles. Immense crowds flocked to public meetings at his newly formed "Filadelfia" assembly in Oslo and the Revival spread all over Northern Europe as far as Finland..

Alexander A. Boddy, vicar of All Saints', Sunderland, heard of what was happening in Norway, and travelled there to investigate. He was immediately convinced that it was from God and persuaded the already overworked Barratt to visit his church in northern England. He came for two exciting weeks at the beginning of September, 1907. Thirsty souls were soon filled with the Holy Spirit and the Pentecostal Revival had begun in England. The gift of tongues attracted the attention of the secular press and no further advertisement was needed! When Pastor Barratt re­turned to Oslo the British leadership was left in the hands of A.A. Boddy and Cecil Polhill.

He travelled abroad carrying his Pentecostal flame to believers in India, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Estonia, Iceland and Denmark. 

This book is a brilliant presentation of the Bible basis of the doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and includes the core of his message which lit a Pentecostal flame, notably in Norway and Britain, but also in other parts of the world.
