David Buschart: Exploring Protestant Traditions

We are indebted to Buschart for accentuating this dilemma. The Pentecostal tradition described in his book is essentially North American Classical Pentecostalism. Perhaps that is the place where theological hospitality can take roots. At the beginning of the 21st century, however, the Pentecostal tradition has widened to a global phenomenon that no longer fits the confines of North American Pentecostalism alone. The invitation to hospitality issued by Buschart reminds us that as we invite others, our table fellowship becomes larger. In the presence of the Spirit of hospitality, divisions are not accentuated or tolerated but obliterated for the sake of the gospel of Christ and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all flesh.
