Spring Session 2021


Lois Olena and Peg de Alminana edited a volume of essays for Brill under the Global Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies banner, Volume 21 titled Women in Pentecostal and Charismatic Ministry. Feel free to purchase it if you wish, but it is not necessary. The speakers wrote the essays and will be explaining them to us weekly.

If time and space warrant, we will continue this through May.
