Sobrino's starting point is the suffering poor of El Salvador. As he demonstrates, this vantage point reveals a different face of Christ, and consequently demands a different mode of discipleship. Rather than an "abstract" Christ who identifies with the powerful and counsels passive acceptance of unjust suffering, the poor have discovered a new image of Christ as "the Liberator," one who lived and died in service of God's Kingdom in history. Surrounded by the deaths of countless thousands, including his own martyred Jesuit community, Sobrino brings to his reflections a sense of pathos and challenge that transforms this theological study into a work of profound spiritual reflection. Sobrino aims in this work to promote not only understanding but solidarity and conversion.

This dictionary sets modern, Spirit-filled Christianity in a context that spans two millennia and the entire Christian world. Like no other resource, this volume reveals in detail the full, sweeping legacy of Spirit-empowered movements that have touched hearts and lives both in modern America and across the centuries and continents: in medieval Europe, Finland in the 1700s, South India in the 1800s, Azusa Street at the turn of the 20th century—and much more, including ongoing moves of the Holy Spirit throughout the world today. One thousand entries provide the most extensive information available on Pentecostal, charismatic, and neocharismatic movements. The diverse topics covered include, as a small sample, glossolalia, black and Hispanic Pentecostalism, prophecy, the role of women, faith and healing, music, sociology, missions, church growth, and different historic and contemporary revivals.

Stanley M. Burgess (Ph.D., University of Missouri-Columbia) is professor of religious studies at Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield, Missouri.

Eduard M. van der Maas (Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary) was formerly an editor of textbooks and reference books at Zondervan.

Features:
  • Exhaustive coverage of Pentecostal and charismatic movements in 60 countries and regions—individual histories, cultural and theological aspects, and key figures and institutions.
  • Statistical section with a wealth of current information on the growth of classical Pentecostalism as well as charismatic and neocharismatic movements.
  • 1,000 articles
  • Over 500 photos and illustrations, maps and timeline.
