“The Pentecostal Educator” now on-line

The Pentecostal EducatorThe World Alliance for Pentecostal Theological Education (WAPTE) have just published the first issue of their new open access e-journal, The Pentecostal Educator. They offer a pdf of the complete issue on their website and have very kindly allowed me to host pdfs of individual articles and a table on contents on biblicalstudies.org.uk here.

According to the editorial [p.5], the journal has the following priorities:

• It is committed to theological education. Many of the teachers and professors teaching in Pentecostal institutions around the world are qualified in their specific fields – theology, Bible, church history etc. However, very few have had the advantage of good teacher training. Assessment, pedagogy and even class presentation is often completely ignored in the process of training Pentecostal Theological educators. This journal is a small attempt to encourage best practice in teaching among theological educators.

• This journal provides an ideal platform for educators to publish in a peer reviewed learned journal. I would encourage educators from around the world to develop their publishing credentials and, in so doing, assist their peers.

• Finally, this journal is intended to be a meeting place where meaningful conversations can take place and where both theological and educational constructs and concepts can be developed in a meaningful way.
