Spiritus 3.2 (Fall 2018) is a special issue dedicated to Oral Roberts studies. 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 even-handed and thoughtful examination of the man Oral Roberts. Indeed, this issue may serve as a primer, a textbook of sorts, on the work of the man whose life is at the foundation of the university, yet who may not be in the conscious thought of students who have passed through the doors of the university since his retirement from active ministry.
