Synopsis

This extensive volume examines Neo-Pentecostalism's significance in the Western cultural context and brings a comparative account of neo-Pentecostalism in the United States and Britain. Although primarily sociological in emphasis, the volume also offers deep historical analysis and theological reflection. Neo-Pentecostalism (otherwise known as the Charismatic Movement) has proved to be the most vibrant expression of global Christianity. Its cultural and theological flexibility has ensured that it has powerfully impacted many areas of the world. Through its comparative approach the volume commences with defining neo-Pentecostalism and considering its influence in the radically different religious cultures of the United States and Britain. It details the movement's roots in the earlier 'classical' Pentecostalism and traces its influence through the mainstream churches. The volume then considers the cultural factors that have shaped more recent expressions of neo-Pentecostalism through its various 'streams' including British Restorationism, the Jesus People phenomena, and the distinctly North American 'health and wealth ministries' and Third Wave movement.

This is followed by a consideration of the waves of revival of the 1990s and into the twenty-first century, including the so-called 'Toronto Blessing.' The final chapters of the volume overview the political dimensions of neo-Pentecostalism in the USA and Britain, the neglected area of black ethnic variants and, finally, the future prospects of the movement.
