    Hello!

    I am conducting research for a book about the afterlife. I would like some characters to be Pentecostal. In order to portray Pentecostalism accurately and respectfully, I would like to interview practicing Pentecostals and, hopefully, get an idea of what life is like for you, how you make moral decisions, and what your views are on the afterlife.

    Interviews take 1 to 2 hours and are usually conducted over the phone. If you live in the Central Valley of California or the SF Bay area, a face-to-face interview over lunch or coffee is possible. Interviewees would be expected to sign a waiver.

    Please, if you have any questions at all, feel free to ask. If you are interested in helping me with my research, please PM me or respond to this post.

    Edit: Changed Pentacostal to Pentecostal. See! I'm learning already!

    You might improve your credibility by spelling 'Pentacostal' (sic) correctly.;)

    Send me a private message. I'll interview. I actually wrote a book of short (fiction) stories about how I think Heaven will be.

    I see you posted a similar request in the Baptist forum. What other groups are you looking for?

    Mormons, Catholics, Methodists, Calvinists, and non-denominational Evangelicals.

    I'm also looking for non-Christians such as Muslims, Jews, Zoroastrians, Witches (British Traditional), and atheists, but I'm pursuing those interviews through other avenues.

    Thanks for asking!

    Interesting that you left out the Jews. Even us Messianics.

    You must've missed it. They're between Muslims and Zoroastrians.

    Thanks. I'll look for that forum. I'm just trying to space out my postings so I don't get overwhelmed with responses.

    This will be my first novel. I won't shop around for a publisher until it's been written. My previous writing experience consists of newspaper reporting and editing.

    I highly recommend the near death experience of Bob Jones........ I think that he is in the top one percent of Pentecostals for being well informed about the afterlife.
    The near death experience of Pastor Bob Jones!
