Current Pentecostal Issues

PTHE 328
Pastoral Theology
3
Systematic Theology I and either Acts or Pentecostal Distinctives
Description:

Over the past century, the Pentecostal movement has experienced many profound changes—some positive and some not so positive. During this time, the larger world has changed as well. While this course will have a somewhat different focus each time it is taught, it aims to be both contemporary and practical. It will address some of the theological and pastoral issues that Pentecostals currently face in the light of globalization, the changing religious landscape in America and new questions and attitudes from the unchurched world. Throughout the course, the nature and impact of Pentecostal spirituality will be assessed.
