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.
