Editorial Reviews


A welcomed contribution to Pentecostal scholarship...The brevity of Pentecostal Modernism belies its density, but not its accessibility. In fact, it is an enjoyable read that is both insightful and well-researched... As semi-peripheral speech, speaking in tongues enacts an experience-system wherein practitioners assert a certain agency that not only feels (has an affective encounter) but informs (makes the problem known), and promotes (demands intervention and positive outcomes).
  --Dara Coleby Delgado, Pneuma

The bold project of Pentecostal Modernism is to reconceptualize Modernism by challenging both our way of thinking about the cultural moment of texts and, at the same time, our way of thinking about the qualities of those texts comprising Modernism. ...In this enterprise in particular, it makes a carefully constructed, powerful intervention suggestive of much potential for future scholarship drawing on its principles of approach. 
 -- Mark P. Williams, American Literary History

As a scholar of Pentecostalism, it was intriguing for me to observe how Shapiro and Barnard's efforts resituated familiar material in new domains. Older sociological accounts of Pentecostalism being generated by social dislocation and rapid urbanization are here given impetus for reconsideration via literary-theoretical perspectives
-- Amos Yong, Christianity and Literature
