Book Give Away!

I wrote a new book which came out last Easter just after the first lockdown started, and so, well, even I sort of forgot about it. But, I eventually got my hands on a few copies, so, I'd like to give two of them away.  The book is about the theology of the founders of the Apostolic Church, so it should hopefully be of interest to Apostolic pastors, which means one of the copies is reserved for any pastor in the Apostolic Church. The other copy is for anyone in the UK (because international postage is too expensive, sorry!). Here's the link to enter the competition. (I've never tried making a competition before, so sorry if it's not the most slick!) There are four ways to enter.  1) Subscribe to the blog by email. 2) Follow me on Twitter. 3) Tweet about the competition using via the competition page above.  4) For the pastor copy, any pastor can email me at the address in the Apostolic Church UK Staff Address Book.  You can see the full table of contents on the Google b


Hello! My name's Jonathan Black and I'm an ordained pastor and teacher in the Apostolic Church. Originally, I'm from Northern Ireland, but nowadays I lecture in doctrine and ethics at a Pentecostal theological college in England. I read theology at the University of Cambridge (MA), Continental Theological Seminary/University of Wales (MTh) and the University of Chester (PhD on the Trinitarian ecclesiology of the Apostolic Church.) Before taking up my current lecturer's post in 2018, I was the minister of the Apostolic Church in Leeds. (And before that, I taught theology at at a Pentecostal seminary in Belgium). Hence the blog about 'Apostolic Theology'.

Oh, and I've also written a book called Apostolic Theology: A Trinitarian, Evangelical, Pentecostal Introduction to Christian Doctrine (Luton: Apostolic Church, 2016)
