Open Letter - May 15, 2011


The Pentecostal-Charismatic Theological Inquiry International web was launched in 1996. For several years, it served a purpose of being, among other things, a gateway to emerging resources around the world. I would also  spend time working as the web manager for Society for Pentecostal Studies, Pentecostal-Charismatic Churches of North America, and the Pentecostal World Fellowship.

I was trying to carry forward the vision that on display at the Theological Track of Brighton '91. The presenters were Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, and Pentecostals from six continents. Registration was by invitation only in an effort to balance the Global North and Global South. Simultaneous translation was provided in at least three languages. The keynote speaker was Professor Jurgen Moltmann and topics covered included: gender, race, social responsibility, apartheid, liberation theology, salvation of all creation, other living faiths, martyrdom, ecumenism, etc.

It was never my intention to become an authentic webmaster. The result is that the primary pages of the PCTII web have not been updated in 2011. My plan going forward is to continue to publish the Cyberjournal for Pentecostal-Charismatic Research. This e-journal is preserved by the Library of Congress and will be passed on to another editor in due time.

This note is simply an explanation that those who have used PCTII for updated information about Pentecostal research will need to look elsewhere. I am quite fulfilled with various academic and ecumenical ventures but am looking at the need to publish more books.
