Spring 2012: Other Significant Articles

Robert C. Crosby, “A New Kind of Pentecostal: It’s no longer just about raising a hand to God. It’s also about reaching out a hand to the needy,” Christianity Today (August 2011), pages 50-54.

Southeastern University professor Robert Crosby says that there is an awakening for social concern and whole life transformation among today’s Pentecostals.


John F. Carter, “Power and Authority in Pentecostal Leadership,” Asian Journal of Pentecostal Studies 12:2 (July 2009), pages 185-207.

How influence is exercised by the leader can have many faces. Carter reminds us that as Christians, we have an obligation to derive and express our power in biblical ways.


Cecil M. Robeck, “Montanism and Present Day ‘Prophets,’” Pneuma 32:3 (2010), pages 413-429.

Montanism was a prophetic movement that arose in the late second century, calling the church of their day back to the spontaneity of the Spirit. But the movement was eventually condemned as heretical and imperial edict called for the destruction of all Montanist documents. How heretical was the movement? What have scholars learned about potential connections to today’s charismatic movements?


J. Todd Billings, “How to Read the Bible: New strategies for interpreting Scripture turn out to be not so new—and deepen our life in Christ,” Christianity Today (October 2011), pages 24-30.

The cover article of the October 2011 issue of Christianity Today offers a brief introduction to Theological Interpretation of Scripture from a Reformed perspective, inviting all believers to read the Bible with confidence and humility.
