Book Description

October 2, 2000 0521660726 978-0521660723
This book is about conservative Protestant Christians and their spread around the globe. It focuses on "Health and Wealth" Christians. A ministry in Scandinavia is shown to be closely linked to evangelicals in other parts of the world, particularly the United States. The book provides the first extended account by an anthropologist of a Health and Wealth ministry. It makes a major contribution to an understanding of the material lives of these Christians: their art, architecture and uses of electronic technologies such as television, videos and the Internet.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]he best example to date of how ethnography can illuminate the complex relationship between charismatic Christianity and the globalization of high technology and consumerism." Journal of the Society for the Anthropology of Europe

"This anthrpological study of the Swedish neocharismatic movement, Word of Life (Livets Ord), makes an important contribution to both globalization studies and the analysis of Pentecostalism." Missiology

"...Coleman presents us with a solid anthropological analysis that helps to put flesh on the world of globalization theories and does so with a fine sense of balance between insider and outsider social-scientific perspectives. His presentation is readable and accessible to a wider audience than specialized scholars." Journal of Religion
