Dr. Steve Studebaker, will be giving a lecture at the University of Birmingham on June 6, 2017 as part of the Walter J. Hollenweger annual event, organized by the Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies. Studebaker’s lecture, titled, “The Spirit of the Atonement: Pentecostal Challenges to the Christian Tradition” and will address the challenges and opportunities provided by Pentecostal theology to the Christian atonement tradition. Although the atonement has been at the core of Pentecostal soteriology, no comprehensive theology has yet been articulated and brought into dialogue with the variety of Christian proposals. Studebaker suggests that it is particularly the Pentecostal focus on the Holy Spirit that challenges the established theories and ideas of the Christian tradition.
Professor Steven Studebaker is Associate Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology & Howard & Shirley Bentall Chair in Evangelical Thought here at MDC.
