Where is Pentecostal theology going in the 21st century?
How does it address issues of spirituality, politics and justice?
What does it have to offer the worldwide Church?
These and other vital questions are explored here by leading Pentecostal theologians from the UK and the USA as they assess the challenges and opportunities facing Pentecostalism today.
With stimulating contributions by Joel Edwards, Charlotte Johnson, Steven Land, Douglas Nelson, Phyllis Thompson and Keith Warrington, this book offers valuable guidance to church leaders and to students training for the ministry throughout the Pentecostal world.
'There is passion and information here, advice for the present and hope for the future.'
William K. Kay, Institute for Pentecostal Theology, Regents Theological College
'When we consider that one in four Christians are Pentecostals, this book is a "must" for all who are seeking to improve their knowledge of Pentecostal theology and recognize its distinctives.'
Bishop Dr Donald Bolt, New Testament Church of God England and Wales
