Editorial Reviews

Review

"Afro-Pentecostalism is an excellent interdisciplinary study of the past, present, and future of the African American Pentecostal movement, demonstrating that it is far more than what many other black Protestants have perceived it to be."-The Journal of African American History

“An important, pioneering and multidisciplinary collection from some of the best scholars in this field. The contribution of Afro-Pentecostalism in shaping the religious history of Christianity in the twentieth century is expertly discussed and false presuppositions exposed. No student of Pentecostalism will want to be without this book.”

-Allan Anderson,University of Birmingham, UK

“A groundbreaking collection by several generations of scholars of African American religious history, theology, and ethics. A must read for anyone serious about the study of the larger Pentecostal and Charismatic movements in particular and the American Christian church and its missions in general.”

-A.G. Miller,Oberlin College

"The essays are evenly written throughout, well researched, illuminating, and highly informative."
-W.J. Pankey,Choice
