Roger Olson: What Baptists get wrong about the Sacraments

Roger E. Olson, “Why I Think Baptists (and ‘baptists’) Have It Wrong about the Sacraments” Patheos (May 27, 2016). I have found this article by Dr. Olson, professor of theology at Baylor University, most interesting. It is specifically limited to his fellow Baptists, but has much to commend it to a broader audience. Dr. Olson’s […]

Praying the News

Praying the News

The “news” is by its nature, mostly negative. An airliner that makes it to its destination is not news, but one that falls out of the sky is. The national TV networks try to include positive news stories such as “the person of the week” segment on Friday night on CBS, but this hardly stops […]

Encouraging Pentecost: Pentecost Sunday 2016

Encouraging Pentecost: Pentecost Sunday 2016

This past Pentecost Sunday I was invited to preach at my old parish, Light of Christ Church, a charismatic Anglican church in Marietta, Georgia. I was utterly delighted, and determined that I would not only preach Pentecost, but encourage Pentecost. The four suggested readings were all on the Holy Spirit, except for the suggested Psalm. […]

Invitation to read The Spiritual Decline and Fall of the Republican Party

My recent article, “The Spiritual Decline and Fall of the Republican Party: Is it time to form a Christian Center party?” (April 6, 2016) will not appear at PneumaReview.com for the very good reason that it is predominantly political. But the editor of The Pneuma Review has been gracious in inviting me to post this […]

The yearly Charismatic Leaders Fellowship met at Oral Roberts University from February 22nd to the 25th. This group has functioned as a discerning and analytical element of the Charismatic Renewal. In the past, for instance, the group dealt with such issues as the mass deliverance meetings that were fashionable in the 1970s, and the discipleship […]

Prophecy in the Church: Pathway to Revival

Prophecy in the Church: Pathway to Revival

What Spirit-filled pastors and leaders need to know about prophecy in the church. For several years I regularly attended a local Pentecostal church. The pastor believed in all of the gifts of the Spirit and often prayed in tongues during the music ministry. However, on the rare occasions that anyone in the congregation prayed aloud […]

Does Agnes Sanford offer something for Post-Christian Europe?

I am blessed to share with you about my just released book, Agnes Sanford and Her Companions: The Assault on Cessationism and the Coming of the Charismatic Renewal (Wipf and Stock, 2015). Last Wednesday, just after I had received a copy from the publisher, I spent most of the day in prayer of thanksgiving over […]

The Sinfulness and Destructiveness of Conspiracy Theories

The Sinfulness and Destructiveness of Conspiracy Theories

Chasing conspiracy theories is not going to solve any problems. True restoration begins when God’s people repent and walk in righteousness. A recent conspiracy theory has garnered much national attention. It involves “Jade Helm 15,” an Armed Services training exercise employing the elite units of the Armed Forces in counter-terrorist warfare. About 1,200 servicemen will […]

This year the Charismatic Leaders’ Fellowship (CLF) met on February 23 to the 26, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the Oral Roberts University campus. The weather outside was cold and icy, and in fact about one third of the registered participants could not make it in. But the atmosphere inside the conference was warm with the […]

A Charismatic Looks at the Birth of Pentecostalism

A Charismatic Looks at the Birth of Pentecostalism

  The grace that Pentecostalism brought to Christendom was to make the use of tongues and the other gifts described by Paul in I Cor. 12 and 14 normal in the life of ordinary Christians.[1] This was something not seen since Apostolic times. Before we examine how tongues came to be normal (or at least […]
