Spring 2002: Other Significant Articles


Enrichment: A Journal for Pentecostal Ministry (Winter 2002, Vol 7 No 1)

Editor Gary Allen says that those over age 55 are the fastest growing segment of American society. This issue is packed with practical and biblical insights into ministering to the “Boomers, Builders, and Beyond” and how older Christians’ contributions to the local church can be extremely valuable. This publication of the Assemblies of God also has in this issue an excellent article introducing Jonathan Edwards, whom writer William Farley calls “the Pentecostal’s theologian.”

The Winter 2002 issue is available here:

The Journal of the European Theological Association (Vol. XXI, 2001)

This volume of the JEPTA features mainly articles about the history of Pentecostalism in Europe.



Cutting Edge (Fall 2001, Vol. 5, No. 3)

Cutting Edge is the church planting newsletter of the U.S. Association of Vineyard churches. The Fall 2001 edition features a look at the radical approaches to mission, covenant, and community as seen in two unique churches. The founding pastor of Vineyard Central, in Norwood, Ohio, says this about why understanding commitment is so important:

Because you don’t really love until you do. I think that’s the bottom line. Love stays. Love endures. If you don’t have something that pins your feet to the floor, you are like Don Juan, going from lover to lover thinking that you will eventually find the very best, but that’s imply not true. If you don’t stay, you are never going to address your demons, and you’re not going to be formed relationally until you do that. If you commit to one person over a lifetime, there is a richness of experience and a history of experience that is unparalleled. There is no other relationship that can touch marriage, on this earth. I think we should see some parallel things in the church. Yes, people are to be sent, and some people are with us for a season, certainly. But much of what we see in all the coming and going is the romantic search for what church life is “supposed” to be like, and the reality is too real for us. We love it in concept, but we don’t like it when it hits us in the face.


This issue also takes a look at the vision of Gordon Cosby, a Word War II chaplain, and the church he planted over 50 years ago in Washington, D. C. He has much to say about the dangers of large congregations and culture ingestion. If you are thinking of planting a church or have been contemplating a biblical doctrine of the church, you will not want to miss this cutting edge publication.
