The works of black Pentecostal scholars who are members of classical Pentecostal denominations are well recognized. Less is known, however, about the work of black Pentecostal scholars from denominations rooted in different historical movements. One such Pentecostal scholar worthy of recognition is Barbara A. Holmes. While she self-identifies as Pentecostal/Charismatic, she is more accurately classified as neo-Pentecostal. The story of her spiritual journey reveals the complex routes and profound contributions of Pentecostalism toward the Charismatic movement in historic denominations like the United Church of Christ/Disciples of Christ Church. The influence of Pentecostalism on Holmes’s scholarship is most evident in her focus on spirituality and quest for a theology of creativity.
