Aims & Scope

The Aim of Spiritus

Spiritus: ORU Journal of Theology is a peer reviewed theological journal that aims to . . .

  • Publish studies from all disciplines pertaining to Spirit-empowered Christianity, from established and emerging scholars
  • Emphasize theological and cognate studies and works from and about Christianity in the Majority World
  • Review pertinent scholarly works as well as some professional and popular works of merit
  • Publish scholarship to benefit especially Spirit-empowered Christian communities globally.


Scope of Spiritus 

Spiritus raises a voice in service to global Spirit-empowered communities, a space that both expresses the distinctive contribution of ORU to these communities and offers itself as a gift to and for them. As distinctive contribution, Spiritus is a vehicle that advances the vision of ORU’s founder, Oral Roberts, to bring God’s healing and the transformative power of the Holy Spirit to “every person’s world,” so that every person, every community, indeed all of creation, might experience God’s restorative power. Contributions from scholars from around the world as well as from North America will feature prominently in the pages of Spiritus. Spiritus invites a wide range of participants from all corners of the Spirit-empowered world to help shape the future of these communities in their missions. This invitation includes reviews of noteworthy books on topics germane to the interests of Spirit-empowered communities. Of special note is the effort to offer frequent scholarly inquiries into the contributions of Oral Roberts to the church. Spiritus is a forum for theological reflection that actively promotes a global exchange of views, fostering conversation among Spirit-empowered leaders and communities
