The Spirit and the Mind, a collection of essays in honor of Pentecostal scholar Donald N. Bowdle, unites a wide-ranging group of authors in an attempt to articulate the Pentecostal tradition of the Christian faith. The topics vary from biblical criticism to specifically Pentecostal issues. The editors, concerned with the popular perception of Pentecostal scholarship, have gathered together a selection of pieces that demonstrate the diversity and intellect of the scholars from this tradition. Issues explored include prayer and mysticism, the need for integrity in ministry, the doctrines of justification and sanctification, and the need for an informed Pentecostalism.
