ESG Lecture 2018 – 14th March – “The Spirit in a Spirit-filled World: The Global Dynamics of Pentecostalism”

Monday 8 January, 2018

We invite you to join us at 1.30pm and 3.30pm on Wednesday 14th March for this year’s Edwin Stephen Griffiths’ Lectures at the South Wales Baptist College.

This year our guest lecturer is Professor Allan H Anderson, Professor of Mission and Pentecostal Studies, Birmingham University. In this year’s lectures Professor Anderson will be exploring the theme:

The Spirit in a Spirit-filled World: The Global Dynamics of Pentecostalism.

Pentecostalism is the fastest growing religion in Africa and in several other parts of the world, affecting every type of Christianity. These lectures explore some of the reasons for this growth.

One of the main reasons has been its interaction and confrontation with an ever-present spirit world, which is taken seriously by its preachers and members.

Professor Allan Anderson is author of a number of significant books and a leading authority on global Pentecostalism. The following video indicates his current research focus:

We look forward to welcoming him to Cardiff and to benefitting from his insights into such a significant dimension of Christian faith today.

The two Edwin Stephen Griffiths’ Lectures will be held at 1:30pm and 3:30pm respectively, on Wednesday 14th March 2018 in the main Lecture Hall at the South Wales Baptist College, 54 Richmond Road, Cardiff. CF24 3UR.

Admission is free – and we hope that you will be able to join us for these stimulating lectures.
