The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies
Editors-in-Chief: Nimi Wariboko and L. William Oliverio Jr.
Pneuma is the Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies (SPS). Since its founding in 1970, the SPS has become an international society of scholars interested in Pentecostal and Charismatic studies. Though many of the more than 600 members of the Society belong to one of the Pentecostal or Charismatic churches, a number of others are involved in the Society's annual meetings from other churches or merely from university settings. In 1979, Pneuma first appeared as the Journal of the SPS. The Journal became a major medium for the international discussion of scholarly issues related to Pentecostal and Charismatic studies. Pneuma publishes peer-reviewed articles on matters related to the special interest groups of the SPS, namely, biblical studies, history, theology, missions, praxis, ecumenism, ethics, philosophy, and religion and culture. The Journal cherishes an ecumenical and an international vision as well.
