Editorial Reviews

Review

“Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand American Pentecostalism. Poloma and Green have succeeded in crafting a readable, and indeed enjoyable, narrative that is at the same time precise in its insights, being grounded as it is in a rich array of survey and interview data. Novice and expert alike can learn what Assemblies of God pastors and congregants believe as well as what they actually do or do not do to act on their beliefs.”
-Candy Gunther Brown,author of The Word in the World: Evangelical Writing, Publishing, and Reading in America, 1789‒1880



"This work is exceptionally well-crafted and will stand as a new classic for understanding trends within the AG and modern Pentecostalism."-International Journal of Comparative Sociology

"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

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

“An insightful, empirically based analysis of how the Assemblies of God denomination is changing in response to modernity. This multimethod book, based on both surveys and field research, contributes to a growing sociological literature on Pentecostalism.”
-Donald E. Miller,Executive Director, Center for Religion and Civic Culture, University of Southern California



“Poloma and Green have rendered a rich and compelling portrait of a complex faith. They probe the countervailing forces that characterize this vibrant denomination, examining how the priestly and the prophetic are intermingled, and how traditional religious orientations are melded with evangelical impulses. Those wishing to understand current developments in the Assemblies of God, and in American Pentecostalism at large, owe it to themselves to read this volume with care. Poloma and Green have their finger on the pulse of a rapidly changing facet of American religion.”
-John P. Bartkowski,author of The Promise Keepers: Servants, Soldiers, and Godly Men



"This is a richly provocative book that can be expected to generate many fruitful follow-up explorations."-Candy Gunther Brown,Journal of Religion

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

"This book is recommended for those interested in an empirically based study of new and emerging trends in American Pentecostalism."-Catholic Books 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

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

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.
