An Introduction to Pentecostalism : Global Charismatic Christianity, Hardback Book

An Introduction to Pentecostalism : Global Charismatic Christianity Hardback

Part of the Introduction to Religion series


Pentecostalism has become the fastest growing Christian movement, particularly outside Europe, and Allan Heaton Anderson is one of the foremost scholars of this phenomenon.

His innovative interpretation of Pentecostalism focuses on the serious contribution made by both western and Majority World participants in its development.

In this second edition of his leading introductory course book, Anderson presents an updated global history of the movement, which addresses significant events and changes in recent years, and surveys important theoretical issues such as gender and society, as well as politics and economics.

The book also offers a comprehensive explanation of the significance of Charismatic Christianity throughout the world, plus its effect upon the globalisation of religion and its transformation in the present century.

This new edition will be an important resource for those studying Pentecostalism, Charismatic Christianity, theology and sociology of religion.
