Jon Ruthven's Further reflections on Strangers to Fire, a response to John MacArthur

Jon Ruthven’s Further reflections on Strangers to Fire, a response to John MacArthur

  Strangers to Fire represents a phalanx of biblical responses by a variety of authors to the cessationism first developed by the serpent in the Garden: “Did God really say?” That was a challenge to the idea of revelation from God, a notion more fully developed by the cessationist scribes who opposed Jesus. Jesus said […]

Response to hard cessationist critic, by Craig Keener

Response to hard cessationist critic, by Craig Keener

  Craig S. Keener responds to a critic’s comment posted on his statement about the relationship between anti-supernaturalism and cessationism.     I find here, as in the book to which I originally responded, some strange lumping together of all charismatics’ beliefs to the detriment of any particular charismatic. What prompted me to write the […]

Further, why does it appear that often “good” people suffer when the “wicked” often thrive? Where is God when people suffer individually and collectively? For centuries, […]

Response from Winfield Bevins

Response from Winfield Bevins

    I do have a few things to say about the postmodern discussion in The Pneuma Review. In my opinion, there has not been given any practical or relevant answers for how the church should engage our postmodern world. Many of the panelists have dealt with theory and not praxis. In many ways, there […]
