Editorial Reviews

Review

"A valuable addition to religious studies" -D. A. Chekki,Choice

"Poloma and Green offer an important observation on the different types of congregations emerging within the Assemblies of God."
-Michael Wilkinson,Sociology of Religion



"The authors successfully maintain a delicate balance between a plethora of statistics and readable narratives, making the work a primary source for a wide audience of scholars interested in this century-old American Pentecostal journey."
-Geoffrey W. Sutton,Religious Studies Review

"Herring offers queer history and geography new artifacts of a rural past and present...his work challenges scholars to excavate more of these histories, geographies, and cultural and political styles."
-Mathias Detamore,Envrionment and Planning D: Society and Space

"The book provides a meaningful and constructive feedback to the Assemblies of God."-Samuel Zalanga,Pneuma

Love the way of her writing, she knows how to be a sociologist. Talk about verstehen on Pentecostalism is talking about Margaret M. Poloma.
Easy to understand complicated ideas and ideologies.

This book is a must for those interested in the future viability of the Assemblies of God. Poloma's use of O'Dea's 5 dilemmas/paradoxes are enlightening to say the least.
