THEO 503 Pentecostal Distinctives
Professor : Dr. Martin Mittlestadt
Intensive Module: May 23-26
Course Description

This course will trace the rise of Pentecostalism in the twentieth century, specifically the development of various distinctives that come to mark the movement. Particular attention will be given to this evolution by way of Pentecostal readings of Luke-Acts. Topics will include a short history of interpretation of Luke-Acts, hermeneutical developments, and subsequent application of core Pentecostal doctrines and ecclesial practices such as Spirit baptism and healing. Further analysis will be devoted to emerging theologies and practices based upon global readings of Luke-Acts.
