Ethics in the Age of the Spirit
Race, Women, War, and the Assemblies of God
Howard N. Kenyon, Martin W. Mittelstadt
What causes us as a people of faith to think and act the way we think and act? Are we motivated by whatever is most practical, by a particular understanding of Scripture, by the influence of the culture around us, or by something more profound? On the premise that Pentecostalism does have much to contribute to the study of ethics, this book explores how one group, the American Assemblies of God, has wrestled with issues of racism, women in ministry, and Christian involvement in war. In the process, readers are invited to examine the connection--or disconnect--between what we believe and how we live out our faith.
