Issachar Author Qulaifications
Issachar Imprints is a Pentecostal Christian publishing imprint. Therefore, its authors must write from a Pentecostal/Charismatic viewpoint. This does not mean that any given title must deal directly with Pentecostal/Charismatic subjects or issues, only that the author must be genuinely Pentecostal/Charismatic and write from that particular view of spirituality.
While it would be theologically incorrect to say that Issachar Imprints is Arminian in its view of salvation, it most definitely is not Calvinist and chooses not to promote Calvinism.
The Scriptural impetus for Issachar Imprints is found in 1 Chronicles 12:32: “…men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do…” That does not mean that we are looking for Messianci material or material that views Christianity from a Jewish perspective. Far from it. What it does mean is that its authors should be discerning, spiritually mature, and wise with a valuable message for the church.
Issachar Imprints is interested in every Christian genre with a strong preference for Christian living, Christ and culture, theological, philosophical theological manuscripts.
