Honoring Pentecostal Theologian Gordon Fee

Gordon D. Fee, PhD (University of Southern California) is Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada.

The Society for Pentecostal Studies held a special session to honor the life and work of Dr. Gordon Fee in November 2014 as a part of the joint American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature annual meetings held in San Diego, California.

See “The Legacy of a Pentecostal Theological Educator: Gordon Fee” that I wrote for the January 2015 issue of The Pentecostal Educator Newsletter (available as of Jan 18, 2015 at this address:
