Introduction to Pentecostalism (PENT 0501) Fall 2017

Introduction to Pentecostalism (PENT 0501) Fall 2017

Introduction to Pentecostalism will be offered both in class and livestream. Five Fridays. (Sept. 15, 29, Oct. 13, Nov. 3, 24). Professor Dr. Van Johnson. Location Tyndale Seminary.

The course attempts to analyze the nature and the impact of the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement of the twentieth century.  The lectures, while including a section on the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (Canada’s largest Pentecostal denomination), examine the global impact of this worldwide movement. The movement is traced as to its scope and variety in both Pentecostal and neo-Pentecostal circles and analyzed in terms of the factors related to its widespread acceptance. Due to widespread misunderstanding of the nature of Pentecostalism, a premium is placed on understanding Pentecostalism well enough to explain it clearly to others. The course is designed to engage the learner in a process that fosters openness to the work of the Spirit in the Pentecostal movement.  That is, by reflecting on Pentecostalism and its emphasis on encountering God through the presence of the Spirit the student’s perception of and participation in God’s work in the world will be enhanced.
