Fall 2005: Other Significant Articles

 

William L. De Arteaga, “Glenn Clark’s Camps Furthest Out: The Schoolhouse of the Charismatic Renewal” PNEUMA: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies 25:2 (Fall 2003), pages 265-288.

The author of Quenching the Spirit (Creation House, 1996) says that the CFO had a significant impact on the Charismatic Renewal of the 1960s and 1970s, even though it has been overlooked by most historians of the Pentecostal/charismatic movement because of its early connections with non-Christian theology.

 

 

S. David Moore, “William J. Seymour: The unlikely catalyst of the Azusa Street revival can still teach us what it means to be authentically Spirit-filled.” Ministries Today (May/June 2005), page 48.

This first installment of “Pentecostal Pioneers: 100 Years of Azusa” promises to be a year-long historical retrospect to celebrate the April 2006 Centennial of the Pentecostal/charismatic movement. Moore writes, “As [Seymour] observed the racial bigotry of those who claimed to have been baptized in the Holy Spirit, with tongues-speech as proof, he gradually adjusted his view on ‘Bible evidence,’ putting the emphasis on the fruit of the Spirit as the most important evidence that one was Spirit-filled. He would still believe speaking with tongues was a genuine and significant gift from God, one that could be a sign of the Spirit’s empowerment but not the sign. … For Seymour, Spirit baptism was fundamentally an anointing from God to evangelize a world in need of Christ.”

 

 

“World Christianity: Western Culture, Missions, and the (Real) Future of the Church” Cutting Edge 9:1 (Spring 2005), pages 2-5.

Jeff Bailey interviews Philip Jenkins, author of The Next Christendom: The Rise of Global Christianity (Oxford University Press, 2002), to ask how church planters need to see their role in light of the world’s changing realities. “The best prophecy I came across when I was researching my books was from Saint Vincent De Paul, who said, ‘Jesus said his church would last until the end of time. He never mentioned the word “Europe.” The church of the future will be the church of South America, Africa, China and Japan.’ If you take Japan off the list, that’s a very prescient comment for someone writing in 1640!” (5).

Professor Grenz completed a six-part series on postmodernism and the church for the Assemblies of God Enrichment journal before his unexpected death on March 12, 2005. This series offers an excellent introduction to what a postmodern church might look like, and this article discusses what a postmodern church would value as well as showing some mistaken understandings of what it means to be postmodern.
