Clothing A Naked Church

Clothing A Naked Church

Like a good physician, Dr. Jerald Daffe has placed his fingers on the current pulse of the Church and has run a series of tests. His diagnosis is that as Christ`s body in the twenty-first century, we`re sick—perhaps even terminally ill in some areas—and we don`t even know it. The good news is that because this is Christ`s church, the power of God`s Spirit can work with us to change our condition. more

Fasting, A Centre For Pentecostal Theology

Fasting, A Centre For Pentecostal Theology

In this short introduction, Old Testament scholar Lee Roy Martin offers the first scholarly monograph length study on fasting written by a Pentecostal. Martin begins by looking at the practice and function of fasting as reflected in the biblical text. He next offers a brief survey of fasting within the broader Christian tradition, giving special attention is to the role of Fasting in the teaching of John Wesley, the spiritual 'grandfather' of Pentecostalism. This is followed by an examination of the role and practice of fasting in the first 10 years of the early Pentecostal periodical literature, offering the most extensive analysis of the topic in this body of literature to date. The book concludes with the construction of a Pentecostal theology of fasting, including concrete advice for those who seek to put knowledge of fasting into practice. By examining every biblical text devoted to fasting this study and covers details of the biblical teaching on fasting that have often gone unnoticed. By hearing the testimonies of the Christian tradition, this monograph helps to reveal fasting practices based on traditions that have little to no basis in the biblical text. By excavating early Pentecostal views, Martin demonstrates the significance of fasting for the tradition. In his constructive chapter Martin's scholarly and pastoral skills combined to provide solid practical reflection and guidance for those interested in this often misunderstood practice. more

Holiness In The Letters Of Paul  (Paperback)

Holiness In The Letters Of Paul (Paperback)

Paul's understanding of holiness stems from the holiness of God as revealed in the Old Testament. Using varied terminology, Paul describes the holiness that should characterize the believers as the people of God. God expects moral integrity of his people, because he has provided believers with his Holy Spirit to enable them to live exemplary, Christlike lives in this present world, though polluted, as they prepare for the world to come. Believers, who, like Paul, anticipate the Parousia, must not only desire but also pray that holiness becomes a reality in their lives, cognizant of the fact that holiness is a matter of practice, not merely a status that one attains upon justification. Thus, holiness is an imperative for the people of God. more

Pentecostal Spirituality, A Passion for the Kingdom

Pentecostal Spirituality, A Passion for the Kingdom

In what is perhaps the most significant study of Pentecostal Theology to date, Stephen Jack Land offers a constructive interpretation and issues a call for the re-vision of the Pentecostal tradition. Viewing the first 10 years as the heart, not the infancy, of its spirituality, Land identifies the theological heart of the tradition as the five-fold gospel that proclaims, 'Jesus is Savior, Sanctifier, Holy Ghost Baptizer, Healer, and Soon Coming King. Land's work recovers The crucial importance of the tradition's Wesleyan, Holiness, and 19th century revivalist-restorationist roots. >br> Something of the significance of Land's constructive proposal is revealed by a survey of the number of references to it in any number of works devoted to Pentecostal Theology. In many ways it has proven to be the starting point for the academic study of constructive Pentecostal Theology and it is now hard to imagine what the shape of this academic discipline would look like without the appearance of Land's work. more

The Apocalypse, A Literary and Theological Commentary

The Apocalypse, A Literary and Theological Commentary

In this commentary, Pentecostal biblical scholar John Christopher Thomas offers a fresh reading of the Apocalypse informed by three decades of research and writing devoted to Johannine in literature. Engaging in the best of critical scholarship he avoids simply recounting the views of other scholars on a variety of interpretive issues. Rather, he gives priority to the world of the text by means of literary, intertextual, and theological analysis, as he seeks to discern the effect of this visionary experience upon the hearers (both implied and actual) of this text. The most extensive reading of the Apocalypse offered by a Pentecostal scholar to date, this commentary is shaped by the Pentecostal and wider communities via times of engagement with local worshipping communities, scholarly audiences at academic conferences, and academic settings at a variety institutions around the globe. Thomas' distinctive literary and theological hearing of the Apocalypse, which adheres closely to the final form of the text and reflects the heart of Pentecostal theology and spirituality, marks a major transition in Pentecostal approaches to the Apocalypse and may well assist, along with others, in the reclamation of the canonical book for the Pentecostal community and beyond. more

The Life Of Moses

The Life Of Moses

Toward A Pentecostal Theology Of Preaching

Toward A Pentecostal Theology Of Preaching

From the beginning of the movement until now Pentecostalism has relied heavily upon its preachers - preachers both old and young, male and female, ordained and lay, educated and uneducated. Although preaching has been an important aspect of Pentecost life and practice, few works have been written on Pentecostal preaching, and if you were still have been written from an academic standpoint. This volume is a first step in meeting the need for scholarly reflection upon this important topic. In this multi-authored work, leading Pentecostal theologians come together to construct a contemporary model for the theology and practice of Pentecostal preaching. The writers take into account Pentecostalism's history, theology, ethos, diversity, and global expressions as they offer a distinctive theological vision for Pentecostal preaching. Chapters address issues related to the location of preaching, the content of preaching, the place of preaching in the community of faith, the role of the Holy Spirit in preaching, and Pentecostalism's openness to women as preachers. Written for pastors, students, and scholars, this work provides ample resources for those interested in examining the Pentecostal theory of preaching. more
