Knowledge and transformation: towards a ‘Pentecostal paideia’

Adam White

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In response to the tendency for Pentecostals to emphasise spirituality over and against formal and academic means of knowing, this paper insists that Scripture holds together a notion of spiritual experience with the importance of structured learning for personal transformation and maturity. This argument is based on a socio-historical analysis of Paul's discussion of the concept of paideia.
