Pipkin, Foreword by Titus Peachey. Many Pentecostal groups have forgotten their legacy of war resistance and doctrinal history opposing killing. To rectify this loss, we have catalogued Holiness and Pentecostal denominational statements on war and peace. Numerous Holiness groups and virtually all early Pentecostal groups had some form of pacifist statement against war. This antiwar collection gives us an almost uniform picture of the early Pentecostal movement as largely pacifist in orientation.
The commonality of these statements across both Holiness and Pentecostal movements is evidence they are a continuous group and not two separate movements. While their early doctrines opposed killing, many named in this book are now widely considered to be stalwarts of the Religious Right, or at least staunch supporters of Christian participation in war. Our hope is that this book will frame the official position of early Pentecostals on war and peace, and encourage Pentecostals today to reflect on their antiwar heritage.

McConnell's vision was one of creating a day of remembrance, solitude, and action to restore the broken human relationship to the land. Little acknowledged are McConnell's religious convictions or background. McConnell grew up in a Pentecostal home.

In fact, McConnell's parents were both founding charter members of the Assemblies of God in His own grandfather had an even greater connection to the origins of Pentecostalism by being a personal participant at the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles in Earth Day, thus, began with strong religious convictions.
McConnell, seeing the ecological demise through his religious background, envisioned a day where Christians could "show the power of prayer, the validity of their charity, and their practical concern for Earth's life and people. In the spirit of McConnell, today's Pentecostal and Charismatic theology has something to say about the earth. Blood Cries Out is a unique contribution by Pentecostal and Charismatic theologians and practitioners to the global conversation concerning ecological degradation, climate change, and ecological justice.
Snavely, Introduction by Joel P.
THE HIDDEN HISTORY of PENTECOSTAL PACIFISM
What would the church look like if Christians saw their lives as constituted by the Spirit's presence to live as Jesus lived? In a time when being "led by the Spirit" is defined more by achieving the "American Dream" than by Jesus's life, answering this question rightly seems all the more critical for the church to survive in a culture increasingly hostile to Christianity. Building upon the work of post-Constantinians John Howard Yoder and Stanley Hauerwas and upon the Trinitarian Spirit-Christology of Leopoldo Sanchez, this account of the Christian life provides a framework for seeing one's Christian life as one transformed by the Spirit to live in the resurrection reality of Jesus's sonship with the Father in the Spirit.
In the process, one will discover that, for Jesus, being led by the Spirit meant trusting his Father to the point of death on a cross, trusting God to resurrect him even if he did not save him. Should it mean the same for Christians today? If so, this would require the church to reimagine its ministries for the Spirit to work repentance and faith rather than simple agreement. For Christians living in the Spirit, their lives might look very different.

As with any faith tradition, this history can get incredibly complicated denominational minutiae, regional differences, ethnic dynamics, competing or overlapping institutions, and so on. The Vietnam era strikes me as the most critical recent turning point in this story. At the same time, American Mennonites as a whole have remained decidedly right-of-center in their voting patterns—a fact that might surprise those whose encounters with Mennonites come largely in activist or academic contexts.
October 9, at AM. Janine Giordano said…. Great points, Steven.
I think the author would agree that Vietnam did help smooth over differences between Anabaptists and the broader social justice left. In fact, I think that was one of his provocations for doing this century-long history of Mennonite doctrine.
It's also a great point to point out how many American Mennonites remain interested in minimal government. Stutzman acknowledges that this is not something that comes up as much in the published records at the denominational level. I guess it's a bit like the many many many conservative proto-mainline Protestants in the Social Gospel era. That fetish for archival materials really does influence the kinds of histories we write! Tom Van Dyke said…. Great stuff, Janine.
Thx so much for the thorough and informative review. The Anabaptist tradition presents a unique, non-normative prism through which to view our history.
Thx again! October 10, at PM. Deborah Penner said….
I appreciate this review, Janine. How are you doing these days? Where are you teaching?
