Pentecostals, Peacemaking and Social Justice series

PCPJ has its own book series, published at Wipf & Stock. The series is called “Pentecostals, Peacemaking and Social Justice”. The peacemaking aspect of the series focuses on pacifism, war, just war tradition, just peacemaking, peacebuilding, conflict transformation, nonviolence, forgiveness, and other peacemaking-related themes and issues within Pentecostal-Charismatic traditions and from Pentecostal-Charismatic perspectives. The justice aspect of the series focuses on gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, economics, class, globalization, trade, poverty, health, consumerism, development, and other social justice related themes and issues within the Pentecostal-Charismatic tradition and from Pentecostal-Charismatic perspectives.

We welcome contributions from theologians, biblical scholars, philosophers, ethicists, historians, social-scientists, pastors, activists, and practitioners of peacemaking and social justice. We encourage both original work and publication of important historical resources. We especially invite both scholarly and praxis-oriented contributions from global south Pentecostals and Charismatics, for this series seeks to explore the ways that Pentecostal-Charismatic Christians can develop, strengthen, and sustain a peace-with-justice witness in the twenty-first century around the world.
