<title> ABSTRACT </title>Postmodernism invites Pentecostals to re-evaluate critically notions of history. This article will explore how the Psalm writers seek to bridge the gap between what happened in the past and what is happening in the present. On the one hand, the Psalm writer's selection and interpretation of what is remembered is shaped by the needs of the present, so that the remembered story is adapted and even altered in response to the present. On the other hand, the lament psalms insist that present experience be reconfigured in light of the remembered story. As the people of Israel tell and re-tell their story, it becomes clear that the way God is experienced in the past cannot be separated from each new experience of him. Pentecostal scholars must describe more clearly the relationship between root experiences, the telling of the biblical story, and testimonies that result from fresh encounters with God.
