Product Description & Reviews

Pentecostalism is arguably the most vibrant and rapidly growing religious movement of the 20th century, circling the globe in less than 25 years. Characterized by speaking in tongues, miracles, television evangelism, and megachurches, it is also known for its small-group meetings, empowerment of individuals, liberation of women, and humanitarian concerns. In this Very Short Introduction, William K. Kay outlines the origins and growth of Pentecostalism, looking at not only the theological aspects of the movement, but also the sociological influences of its political and humanitarian viewpoints. He shows that its history goes back to Methodism and, before that, to earlier revival movements, while its theology includes elements of holiness teaching and Adventism in a unique pattern focused upon Jesus. Worship may be expressed in innovative music or dance and, despite a worldview open to supernatural beings, believers are likely also to welcome the use of the latest communication technology. Kay discusses how Pentecostalism was joined in the 1960s by a new religious wave, the "charismatic movement," which spilled over into mainline Christian denominations and transformed their worship.

By Brand: Oxford University Press, USA

The Language of Disenchantment explores the ways in which Protestant ideas concerning language influenced British colonial attitudes toward and proposals to reform Hinduism.

Central to these developments was the transportation of the Christian opposition of monotheism and polytheism or idolatry into the domain of language.

This vocabulary played an important role in Quaker spiritual formation and community life from the beginning of the movement in 1650, and continues today as modern seekers wrestle with describing their experiences. When Bill Taber died in 2005, he left behind notes on a project: ''A language for the inward landscape.'' Key
