  • Grigg, Viv (2010-10-20)
    Global processes among urban missions strategists and theologians have provoked the question, “What is the relationship of the Spirit of Christ to the transformation of a postmodern city?” I examine this in a limited manner ...
  • Xu, Peter (2010-10-20)
    During the past two thousand years, the gospel entered China five times. The last time was in 1807 when Morrison of London Missionary Society brought the gospel into China. Until 1949, 142 years after that, the number of ...
  • Kane, Thomas A. (2010-10-20)
    I would like to take us on a journey today around the world. We won’t need a passport or a visa, all we need are eyes wide open and hearts open to wonder. Our journey will take us to various faith communities around the ...
  • Sunquist, Scott R. (2010-10-25)
    Viv has produced for us another analytical tool for use in assessing revival. He has done so creating a matrix of meanings that are both sociologically and theologically informed. The trajectory of his concerns move from ...
  • McDonald, Gerald (2010-10-25)
    Pietism was the most significant religious movement in protestant Christianity since the Reformation, at least on the European continent. Narrowly understood, it was a movement within the German Lutheran church, and is to ...
  • Wagonner, Barten (2010-10-25)

  • Abraham, William R. (2010-11-01)
    It is a particular pleasure to be asked to respond to the paper presented by Professor Howard Snyder. His labors as a historian and theologian in the vineyard of renewal have been prodigious. His work is a model of careful ...
  • Froehle, Bryan T. (2010-11-01)
    [My observations in part stem from my standpoint as a Catholic practical theologian and sociologist who has worked in the area of world Christianity and Christian revitalization. Perhaps it is because I am a Catholic—after ...
  • Snyder, Howard A. (2010-11-01)
    Pentecost did not begin at Azusa Street in 1906—nor, for that matter, on the New Testament Day of Pentecost recorded in Acts 2. Pentecost traces back to the Hebrew Scriptures and Hebrew religious practice. The biblical ...
  • Smith, John (2010-11-01)
    It is important to reiterate the significance of the revitalization theory despite the passage of time since its conception. As an anthropological paradigm it appears in the literature of that domain more frequently than ...
  • Gavrilyuk, Paul L. (2010-11-01)
    The overarching theme of the conference enjoins upon us to ponder renewal movements in the history of Christianity and in our own time in light of the Pentecost. In his address this evening professor Snyder has eloquently ...
  • Hernandez, Albert (2010-11-08)

  • Kubicki, Judith M. (2010-11-12)
    The simple phrase “church as sacrament” is, in reality, a theological mouthful, so to speak. It involves theological assumptions and a particular way of interpreting the Scriptures and the Christian tradition. In order to ...
  • Gyadu Asamoah, Kwabena (2010-12-01)
    This essay, in line with the focus of Consultation II on „the dialectic between revitalization and church,‟ attempts to show how Christian revitalization has worked within the African Christian context. This is a context ...
  • Rynkiewich, Michael (2010-12-01)
    In the heyday of the colonial era, observers such as colonial administrators, traders, planters and military leaders were sometimes mystified and sometimes frightened by what they deemed to be unusual behavior amongst the ...
  • Warner, Catherine (2011-03-08)
    After the collapse of the Soviet Union, a commitment to religious pluralism was incorporated into the very idea of the Ukrainian nation, at a minimum to accommodate the various Orthodox churches and the Ukrainian Greek ...
  • Abraham, William J. (2011-03-08)
    Proposals about renewal invariably offer or assume the following: a description of the problematic state of the church, a diagnosis of what has gone wrong, and a prescription for putting it right. Consequently, efforts are ...
  • Mee, Song Chung (2011-03-08)
    The word “revitalization” implies what was feeble, crippled, non-functional has now becomes the opposite. A classic scene was portrayed in Ezekiel 37:1-10 when the dry bones came alive with flesh and blood by God’s Spirit. ...
