The Globalization of Pentecostalism: A Review Article, by Paul Elbert

[42] Cf. Menzies and Menzies, “Hermeneutics: Jumping Off the Postmodern Bandwagon, Call, pp. 63-68.

[43] For a critique of this movement from the point of view of a science historian, cf. Ronald L. Numbers, The Creationists: The Evolution of Scientific Creationism (Berkeley, CA; University of California Press, 1993).

[45] For an engagement of issues raised by Köstenberger et al, cf. Kevin Giles, “Women in the Church: A Rejoinder to Andreas Köstenberger,” Evangelical Quarterly 73 (2001), pp. 225-45.

[46] In a complementary vein are the descriptive and informative, not necessarily critical historiographic, treatments of Western women in ministry  (consistent with Powers’ above empowerment oriented characterization) by Susan C. Hyatt, “Spirit Filled Women,” in Synan (ed.), Century, pp. 231-63; Burgess and van der Maas (eds.), New International Dictionary, passim.  Given the tenor of this review article it seems highly apropos to mention non-Western examples, cf. Cornelius van der Laan, “Beyond the Clouds: Elize Scharten (1876-1965), Pentecostal Missionary to China,” in Ma and Menzies (eds.), Pentecostalism in Context, pp. 337-60; and “Elva Vanderbout,” in Ma, When the Spirit, pp. 74-86.
