oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The Bible and prophecy in African-South African Pentecostal churches
The Bible plays a very important role in Pentecostal churches, not only of African-South Africa, but worldwide. The question explored in this paper is whether members of these churches use prophecy in the same way as the eighth century Old Testament prophets such as Hosea, Isaiah, Amos, Jeremiah, etc. Do they see prophecy as an important tool for social critique, or does prophecy have another meaning in the lives of Pentecostal believers? If the latter is true, how do the members of these churches interact with prophetic texts in their sermons and daily lives?
