THE SPIRIT AND THE ACADEMY

David Williams

Abstract


The lack of interest, even rejection, of the intellectual study of Christianity by
Pentecostals and their related movements is not a new feature. On the other hand,
their stress on the direct experience of the Spirit has often been derided as irrational.
However, the intellectual and “spiritual” must be fundamentally compatible, even
complementary. This means that academic study can enhance spiritual growth, and at
the same time the nature of the Spirit is such that he can well significantly help the
understanding, development and communication of intellectual theology.
