Language Disconnect: The Implications of Bible Translation upon Gospel Work in Africa

Language Disconnect: The Implications of Bible Translation upon Gospel Work in Africa

Abstract Theological education, even when using indigenous languages, can be uninspiring to African people if its implicit underlying pre-suppositions remain European. Use of European-languages as educational media minimises the likelihood of deep connection with African ways of life, but often has the pragmatic plus of being accompanied by outside funds. A preference for use of […]

The language of priests and the role of bishops in Jesus' day

The language of priests and the role of bishops in Jesus’ day

Kevin Williams responds to questions about the language used in the Second Temple and the role of the Bishop outside of the New Testament.

Solving a Language Puzzle: Between England and Africa

Solving a Language Puzzle: Between England and Africa

  Missionary Jim Harries presents a cogent argument for using indigenous language.   Words originating in English are often written and even pronounced in a different way than in English when in a different language.

Editor Introduction: How the Prayer Language Comes

Praying in Tongues. This is still a hot topic in the church today. Fortunately, they are many among classical Pentecostals and the broad charismatic movement that have realized there is more to the Christian life than “just” tongues. Non-charismatic evangelicals have had the long standing complaint about Pentecostal/charismatics that “tongues” is all they seem to […]

The seventh chapter of the Praying in the Spirit Series. Author Robert Graves presents a compelling challenge for all Christians to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.   The charismatic experience of tongues that accompanies the baptism in the Spirit has been forgotten by a large portion of the Church, mainly because the Church has […]

Praying in the Spirit: Just What Is the Nature of the Prayer Language?

The fourth chapter of the Praying in the Spirit Series. I was in a meeting recently where a man began to offer a prophetic word, but before he finished a woman interrupted him with a message in tongues. It was obvious for several reasons that she was out of order: (1) She interrupted the speaker; […]
