Current Issue: Volume 3, Oral Roberts Centennial (2018)
Vol 3, No 2
This special edition of Spiritus: ORU Journal of Theology is dedicated to Oral Roberts studies in honor of the centennial of his birth. For this issue, Wonsuk Ma, now Dean of the College of Theology and Ministry at Oral Roberts University, has collected a dozen studies covering several areas of Roberts’ life, thought, ministry, and legacy. All of the contributors have a connection to Oral Roberts University, whether as students, faculty, and/or administrators. So it is, in effect, an in-house offering to the university community and the Spirit-empowered community at large, a remembrance of a figure who, now gone, may get overlooked in today’s fast-paced world of Christian theology and ministry, a world often more intrigued with “what’s happening now” than with holy memory. The result, we believe, is an 156 Spiritus Vol 3, No 2 even-handed and thoughtful examination of the man Oral Roberts.
