Scholars have examined Pentecostalism from various ideological perspectives, and adherents have offered testimonies of their experiences in traditional religious settings. Yet absent from that metanarrative are the personal accounts of practicing and non-practicing Pentecostal students and scholars whose formative years were shaped by Pentecostal liturgy and ritual. This call for papers represents an attempt to fill that void.
Writers are encouraged to submit autobiographical essays of 500 to 800 words examining the following topics and others:
early childhood years
adolescence, and adulthood
work and play
pants, fingernail polish, and lipstick
faith meets philosophy
saints and "ain'ts"
speaking in tongues
dreams, visions, and prophecies
race, class, gender and generational issues.
The deadline is May 1, 2002.
