Pentecostal Perspectives

Pentecostal Perspectives

Originating in the early twentieth century, the Pentecostal movement remains one of the fastest growing wings of today’s Church. Here British Pentecostal Scholars consider the history of the Elim churches and the Assemblies of God, and reflect on current trends in theology of the Pentecostal churches on issues such as healing, worship, Scripture, eschatology and tongues. Contributors are Richard Bicknell, James Glass, Malcolm Hathaway, Neil Hudson, William Kay, Richard Massey, David Petts, Siegfried S. Schatzmann and Keith Warrington.

“This is an excellent treatment of the formation of the two largest Classical Pentecostal denominations which gives fascinating insights into Pentecostal doctrine and practice. The writers are not afraid to face difficult and controversial issues. I highly recommend it.” Wynne Lewis, General Superintendent, Elim Pentecostal Churches. “Pentecostal Perspectives is unpolemical, avoids exaggerations and fancy statements… and includes a healthy self-critical vein. The authors…realize that British Pentecostalism, in spite of its successes, must ‘reform or die’.” Prof. Dr. Walter J. Hollenweger, author of Pentecostalism: Origins and Development Worldwide.
