#Pentecostal #Theology of #Preaching
Written for pastors, students, and scholars, this work provides ample resources for anyone who wishes to examine the theology of Pentecostal preaching.
Authored by Lee Roy Martin
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 Pentecostal life and practice, few works have been written on Pentecostal preaching, and fewer still have been written from an academic standpoint. This volume, though not claiming to be comprehensive, begins to meet 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.
