With its remarkable ability to adapt to many different cultures, Pentecostalism has become the world's fastest growing religious movement. While more than five hundred million adherents worldwide have helped to reshape Christianity through this movement, some fundamental questions in the study of global Pentecostalism, and even in what we call "Pentecostalism," remain largely unaddressed. Bringing together leading scholars in the social sciences, history, and theology, this unique volume explores these questions for this rapidly growing, multidisciplinary field of study. A valuable resource for anyone studying new forms of Christianity, as it offers insight and guidance on both theoretical and methodological issues.
