#83: Bradley Noel – Pentecostal Mission and Witness in the West – Podcast
Bradley Noel – Pentecostal Mission and Witness in the West
Bradley Noel and Graham Hill discuss “Pentecostal Mission and Witness in the West.” The GlobalChurch Project podcast episode 83.
Bradley Noel is Director of Pentecostal Studies and associate professor of Christian Ministries at Tyndale University College and Seminary. He is especially keen to explore the connections between Pentecostalism, secularism, and post Christendom.
Western Christians often lament their loss of influence in modern politics and culture. It seems that everywhere one turns, Christendom in the West is dealt another blow, with Christian reactions ranging from withdrawal and entrenchment, to cries of persecution and talks of organized resistance. In his book “Pentecostalism, Secularism, and Post Christendom”, Bradley Truman Noel seeks to address these concerns by putting Pentecostalism into conversation with the very real challenges posed by the increasing post-Christian ethos of Western culture.
Bradley Noel argues that, counter-intuitively, the death of Christendom (if properly addressed), may in fact herald the arrival of the Church’s finest hour.
