Spring 2015: Other Significant Articles

Dale M. Coulter, “Pentecostalism and the Question of CultureFirst Things (November 13, 2014).


Andrew Wilson, “God Always Heals: Good news for our bodies—in this life and the nextChristianity Today (November 25, 2014).

The pastor of a large charismatic church in England and the father of children with debilitating diseases speaks about healing that is no mere theory. William De Arteaga writes: “A good article for a home group or Bible study to tackle the issue of healing.”

Peter Berger, “Is Atheism a Specifically Western Phenomenon?The American Interest (November 26, 2014).

The lead-in to the article reads: “We know atheism in its Jewish or Christian context, as a rejection of the Biblical God. What would atheism mean in a Muslim, or Hindu, or Buddhist context?” William De Arteaga writes: “This is a very useful article in understanding atheism. It is by an ex-Catholic and centers of the classical problem of evil vs. a good God. Note that the author never experienced healing nor the gifts of the Spirit in his years as a Catholic. I believe demonstrating the power of the gospel is the key to evangelizing atheists.”

Craig S. Keener, “Rumors of MiraclesGood News (December 30, 2014).

Craig S. Keener writes: “The United Methodist renewal magazine, Good News recently published an article that they titled, ‘Rumors of miracles.’ Other articles in the same issue, such as Wendy Deichmann’s excellent ‘Lessons from Mozambique,’ are also well-worth reading.”

Folks from the margins of society, and folks who are misfits and oddballs and sick and hungry and homeless, outcasts, the people who are typically despised by the religious.”
