Winter 2015: Other Significant Articles

Veteran Pastor’s Gentle Answers Turn Away Wrath in India” Christian Aid Mission (Feb 19, 2015).

Working in an area where radical Hindus shut down public evangelistic events and nearly half of the residents are Muslims who prohibit leaving Islam, a pastor whose ministry has planted 200 churches appeared to be cornered when a journalist asked if he converts people. The question came as a proposal outlawing religious conversion was being drafted.

Jody Fleming, “The Faith and Praxis of Women in Missions in the Early Pentecostal and Holiness MovementAsbury Journal 69/2 (2014), pages 111-135.

Abstract: Women in the early years of the Pentecostal and Holiness movement played a very important part in the advancement of local and world mission. This paper examines not only the contributions women made during this time period, but also the balance they had between their faith and the practice of that faith. This study includes a select group of women chosen for their comprehension of Christian faith and how it impacted their understanding for reaching out to the world around them. Some are better known than others, but each of their stories represents the impact of women on Christian missionary work of their day.

Chris McMillan, “When Suffering Stays: The father of an ill son reflects on what faith looks like, even when the miracle doesn’t comeVital (March 12, 2015).

Assemblies of God pastor, Chris McMillan reflects on the long road of suffering his family has journeyed and the hope we all may find in God, even if a miracle of healing does not come. “Whether it’s a disabled child, a physical affliction, mental or emotional turmoil, abuse or extreme poverty, suffering is part and parcel of our lives, even as believers.”

Craig S. Keener, “Paul and Spiritual Warfare” as appearing in Robert L. Plummer and John Mark Terry, eds., Paul’s Missionary Methods: In His Time and Ours (IVP Academic, 2012).

Craig Keener introduces the full chapter he wrote for Paul’s Missionary Methods on the connection between Paul and spiritual warfare: “There are various dimensions of what people often call ‘spiritual warfare,’ but one dimension we sometimes miss is the mundane, day-to-day way we treat each other and walk with God … things like truth, justice, faith, sharing our faith, and so forth. That is, some of the very things that Ephesians 6 discusses when it talks about the full armor of God. Although I touch on some other elements of spiritual warfare, I emphasize here the practical, day-to-day dimensions involved. Of course, I still have much to learn in practice; but I believe you will find the Bible study helpful.”
