Editorial Reviews

Review

"The American Pentecostal movement transformed church history in the 20th century. With roots in the 19th-century holiness revival, which taught believers to seek a second work of sanctification after their conversion, Pentecostalism added speaking in tongues as the necessary evidence of Holy Spirit baptism. Jacobsen (Messiah College) describes theological ideas from the first generation of Pentecostals, c. 1900, 1925, by closely analyzing the published writings of 12 of the most interesting and articulate leaders. Some choices are obvious, such as Charles Parham, founder of Pentecostal theology, and William Seymour, leader of the Azusa revival, which launched Pentecostalism into international recognition. On the other hand, Jacobsen also includes healing revivalist Fred Francis Bosworth, who embraced tongues but denied their necessity. Early Pentecostal theology was closely linked to spiritual experience—my experience is my creed, proclaimed one of the leaders—and was especially fluid before becoming more fixed after about 1925. As Pentecostal denominations such as the Assemblies of God matured, they also became more racially segregated. Jacobsen consistently makes good use of recent secondary sources to give historical perspective. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty." —W. B. Bedford, Crown College, 2004jul CHOICE

Format: Paperback
In her review in the Christian Century, Edith Blumhofer of the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals said this was one of only a very few "must read" books dealing with Pentecostalism. She is absolutely right. This book is written in a lively style very different from some of the boring theology I have read in the past. It is fun to read, and if you have any interest in Pentecostals this book is an absolute page turner. This book is not just about theology - it is full of biography and the general history of the movement told in a prose style that reads like a good novel. All in all it is the best book I have ever read on the topic.

This is a book of great historical significance. It brought back so many memories. How did we get to where we are today? This book helps illuminate the ecclesiastical leadership of the first couple of decades and how their ministry helped shape the course of events, beyond their time. Definitely worth reading and having in your library.

Absolutely tremendous work. The author compares Urshan with Haywood, for example. This is a must for a hungry student of recent pentecostalism.
