"The stunning spread of Pentecostalism may be the most important religious reality of the late twentieth and earlytwenty-first centuries. But the movement is so multi-faceted it is hard to say: What does its growth mean for the globalized world or for the larger church? The burdgeoing of 'prosperity preaching' among Penecostals puts this question more pointedly. Why has this preaching been so well received? Is it a betrayal of the Gospel or retrieval of one of its vital overlooked dimensions? This balanced and well-documented collection addresses these and other issues about the fastest growing theological current in the fastest growing Christian movement. No one seriously concerned about the role of Christianity in thetwenty-first century should miss reading it." - Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith
