UNISA grad authors new book

Postby Roscoe » Fri Aug 25, 2006 3:53 am

Paul L. King, who earned his ThD from the University of South Africa, is the author of Genuine Gold: The Cautiously Charismatic Story of the Early Christian and Missionary Alliance (Word & Spirit Press, 2006).

He holds a DMin from Oral Roberts University.

The book is a good read. Riveting and insightful.

Hey Roscoe,

This does look good! I noticed there are frequent references to Bosworth in the index. I'm impressed with the endorsements from CMA leaders too. I wonder if history can provide any examples of Christian denominations returning to an emphasis on the deeper life or is just the opposite true? Postmodernism's emphasis on experience could be the right time for the CMA to make such a change. I'm definitely going to buy this book.

Hello, PatFans.

As soon as I got my copy, I looked for Bosworth. :-)

I found it interesting that Bosworth was kicked out of the CMA over heresy and later returned when he recanted. However, I didn't see King's sources for this, other than a reference to interviews he'd had. Unfortunately, he did not name the people he interviewed.

BTW, King also publishes regularly in Refleks Journal.

You raise a good question about the history issue. It would definitely be worthwhile to take a closer look at this.

Hey Roscoe,

Maybe Dr. King would talk with you about that.
