Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Definitive History of the Spirit-Filled Church Encyclopedic coverage of: Activities of the Spirit over 2,000 years of church history in 60 countries and regions Outpourings at Topeka, Mukti Mission (India), Azusa Street, Duquesne University, and many other 20th-century locations Current movements among today’s 500 million-plus Pentecostal and charismatic Christians worldwide

The New International Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements 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 healing, music, sociology, missions, church growth, and different historic and contemporary revivals. With its unique international and historical perspective, this completely revised and expanded second edition of the acclaimed Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements offers features that no other reference of its kind approaches. Its extraordinary scope and detailed, up-to-date coverage make this the definitive resource on Pentecostal and charismatic denominations and movements both in North America and worldwide.

Includes: 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. Cross references, bibliographies, and indexes to people, places, and topics.

This is an annoyance in an otherwise very good work.

It is packed full of information that will "fill in the blanks" of regarding questions of the history and theology of these movements.
Joe Mabe
A balanced article would necessitate an article by an unbiased observer, rather than by the leaders of those movements.

Format: Paperback
This book is very helpful, precisely because it is written by advocates of differing movements. Too many resources are written by people with only one view of things -- what makes this book so helpful is that you get the viewpoints of the people IN these various movements, which is far more valuable for a researcher.

14 of 17 people found the following review helpful By James T Humphrey II on July 7, 2003
Format: Paperback
This is a great reference book containing a virtually endless source of information regarding terminology, people, events, doctrinal issues, organizations, etc. concerning the Pentecostal/Charismatic movements across the entire world. This book contains many charts, diagrams, pictures, maps, and statistics that would be very useful for those who are doing any sort of research. Whenever possible (which is very frequently) each topic that is presented contains further bibliographical information for further research.
My only complaint with the book is that sometimes some of the various contributors to any number of topics can often be uncritical, and are obviously just writing from a highly biased view point, with little regard to other view points from other charismatic/pentecostal circles are- and this can be deceptive. For example, on "Spiritual Warfare", the author of this topic is writing from what I would regard as a dangerous point of view, and consider it heretical. And the bibliographic references would only lead people to further error, disregarding more balanced, more scriptural views.
However, I have found my own complaint (so far) to be the exception, rather than the rule. Most of what I have read seems to present a balanced view of things...though there are so many things discussed in this book that it would be impossible to independently verify.
This is a must have book for anybody with remotely any interest in pentecostal/charismatic studies.

Format: Paperback
This volume contains a lot of valuable information, and is the only work of its kind I am aware of, ie an exhaustive survey of worldwide charismatic Christianity. That alone earns it four stars.

However, I was disappointed that the editors chose to write from a pro-charismatic bias that may alienate non-charismatics. Indeed, some of the shorter entries seem more like blurbs for the ministers and movements they represent rather than academic, encyclopaedic introductions. The problem is not with what information is included so much as what information is *not* included - for example, absent from the entry on Oral Roberts is any mention of the dubious fundraising techniques and outrageous publicity stunts for which he is most (in)famous. Ian Bilby's entry details his leadership of Elim New Zealand, but includes no mention of the sexual scandal that led to his removal as Elim's NZ leader. All but the most staggering embarrassments in Pentecostalism's history seem glossed over, as if not offending anyone was a major principle in deciding what to include.

I would expect a scholarly work to reflect both the glory and the shame of this important subject. This is an annoyance in an otherwise very good work.

Format: Paperback
This is perhaps one of the most essential tools for pastors that I have found to date. It is packed full of information that will "fill in the blanks" of regarding questions of the history and theology of these movements. Good Book, well balanced. It shows in equal portions positive and negative without the "critical spin" that has become all too common today. It is a great gift.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Considering that this is virtually the first attempt (as far as I know) at a Dictionary of the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement, this is a good start. It is worth the price for what it does contain but it is not without glaringflaws.The title "International" leads one to expect much more coverage of Pentecost outside of the U.S. Canada, where Pentecostal movements thrived in parallel with those in the U.S., is given very scanty treatment.Some major early Canadian apostles, such as O.J. Lovik, are skipped entirely. There is also too much opportunity given for some controversial movements to propagandize. A balanced article would necessitate an article by an unbiased observer, rather than by the leaders of those movements.Finally, there is too much credence and space given to sociological assessments of a movement that requires, above all else, keen spiritual discernment to separate the wheat from the chaff. That said, I will consult my copy often, for the great amount of useful material it does contain.

It is a treasure of research that was next to impossible to find except from writings of individual denominations or books on local history. To have this much information in one place will be a great tool.
