Theological Education in a Cross-Cultural Context: Essays in Honor of John and Bea Carter


It is both a pleasure and a privilege to introduce this volume of essays in honour of John and Bea Carter. I have known the Carters for about 30 years and have appreciated their gracious and forthright approach to both ministry and the Christian life. Friends and colleagues have contributed to this volume, with the underlying theme of Christian Education specifically in an intercultural environment. The authors of these articles come from different streams within Pentecostalism, and from differing ethnic backgrounds.

This is a fitting testimony to the influence that John and Bea have had in their ministry. John’s influence in the development of the Asia Pacific Theological Association, and in later years, in the World Association of Pentecostal Theological Educators, has been both visionary and significant in encouraging high academic standards in Pentecostal Education around the world. Bea’s constant support, encouragement and hospitality has facilitated this ministry.
