Once the Pentecostal peace witness extended throughout the movement and around the world-but was eventually muted and almost completely lost in the American Assemblies of God. This book, which is "gripping, powerful, and prophetic," says Amos Yong, tells the story of that shift. "The antiwar, Christian, pacifist sentiments of the Assemblies of God that Alexander describes . . . juxtaposed in close proximity to their pro-war and anti-pacifist passion and identification with America . . . is simply striking," comments J. Denny Weaver, in the C. Henry Smith Series Editor's Foreword. The implications, observes Cheryl Bridges Johns, Professor of Christian Formation and Discipleship, Church of God, "are worth examining by all traditions asking, 'Will our children have faith?' At the same time, mentions Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Religion, Harvard Divinity School, Alexander's narrative "suggests that Pentecostals may yet reclaim this invaluable element of their heritage."

About the Author:

Paul Alexander, Professor of Theology and Ethics at Azusa (CA) Pacific University, is a Pentecostal peacemaker and justice seeker originally from Kansas who after proudly cheering the 1991 bombing of Iraq discovered nonviolence in his Assemblies of God heritage. His journey from uncritical patriotism to a Jesus-shaped, Spirit-empowered peace-with-justice witness was identity shattering and character-transforming. In 2001 he co-founded Pentecostals and Charismatics for Peace and Justice.
