This thesis undertakes the task of developing and articulating an authentically Pentecostal theology of the Lord's Supper, one that is purposively attuned to early Pentecostal spirituality and in harmony with the witness of Scripture and the wider Christian spiritual-theological tradition as well. Having comprehensively reviewed the current state of scholarly Pentecostal treatments of the Lord's Supper, the study provides a detailed examination of the early Pentecostal periodical literature, uncovering the basic contours of the sacramental thought and practice of the movement's earliest days, and engages in a Pentecostal reading of key scriptural texts. Informed by these discoveries, the study produces a robustly Pentecostal constructive account of the Eucharist- event, including exploration of the theological and practical issues and concerns that matter most to Pentecostals. The final chapter draws out some implications of this study and provides a few suggestions for further research.
