Included in this volume are twelve essays by global scholars who bring their methodological, biblical, and theological expertise to Pentecostal readings of Scripture. Each contributor documents not only how Pentecostals received the Scriptures, but also provide insights and analysis for these interpretations in their respective communities. This volume will serve as an excellent foundation for students and seasoned scholars interested in better understanding Pentecostal reception with all of its theological and hermeneutical implications.
