Journal focus and scope
The African Journal of Pentecostal Studies is an international, open access publication that covers a broad range of topics related to Pentecostalism, neo-Pentecostalism and related renewal movements in Africa and other parts of the world. It seeks to foster multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary scholarship in the academic study of Pentecostalism, emphasising the intersectionality of theology and practice within Pentecostal circles, denominations, non-denominational movements, and other ministries. The African Journal of Pentecostal Studies encourages critical reflection on contested theological and academic themes within Pentecostalism, as well as dialogue with diverse ecumenical theologies. Its scope includes Charismatic themes, including the current trends in Pentecostalism as suggested by list of topics below. In addition, the journal encourages a multidisciplinary approach between Pentecostal theology and other disciplines such as media studies, health sciences, political sciences, economics and so forth. The journal seeks to provide a platform for rigorous, scholarly research that contributes to the understanding of Pentecostalism and its ethical, socio-economic, cultural, political, and religious impacts in Africa. Therefore, the scope of this journal extends beyond African Pentecostalism to global Pentecostalism in the context of world Christianity.
The following topics would be in alignment with the journal’s scope and focus:
- Pentecostalism and Leadership
- Pentecostalism and Charismatic theology
- Pentecostalism in dialogue with Ecumenical theologies
- Pentecostal eschatology in Africa
- Divine healing in African Pentecostalism
