Summer 2007: Other Significant Articles

MT2007MarAprJack Hayford, “Tongues 101: The church needs to look at tongues as a gift, not as a cause for endless theological debate” Ministry Today (March/April 2007), page 38.

Pastor Jack W. Hayford, with over a half-century of pastoral ministry, wants to encourage believers and especially pastors to move beyond seeing the first experience of speaking with tongues as a climax or seal of evidence for a required proof. Rather, “as a commencement into an abiding practice.” “So while I have always practiced, taught and led people to expect to speak with tongues when they are ‘baptized with the Holy Spirit’ (see John 1:33; Acts 1:5), I have urged that expectation as a welcoming of the Spirit’s enablement to enlarge my worship of God Almighty.”


CT200612Ted Olsen, “What Really Unites Pentecostals?: It’s not speaking in tongues. It may be the prosperity gospel” Christianity Today (December 2006).

Research from the October 2006 survey from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life points to many things besides glossolalia that Pentecostal/charismatics agree on worldwide. “It is true, as this magazine has been saying since its inception, that Christians in the West need to listen to Christians in the majority world. Those Christians will mostly be Pentecostals.”



Patrick Sherry, “The Beauty of God the Holy Spirit” Theology Today 64:1 (April 2007), pages 5-13.

In order to encourage the development of a theology of beauty, Professor Sherry offers a historical introduction to the connection between the Holy Spirit and beauty. He considers why beauty is rarely discussed by theologians and makes a case for why a theology of beauty is vital today.
