“Pentecostalism: A Guide for the Perplexed”

45641This study of Pentecostalism by Regent University professor Wolfgang Vondey, “Pentecostalism: A Guide for the Perplexed” (T&T Clark 2012),  will be a great resource in the confusion in Norway and some Western nations about what Pentecostalism is really about.

It sheds light on the most persistent contrasts characterizing the Pentecostal movement: the tension between local manifestations and global Pentecostalism, the inconsistency between spiritual discernment and charismatic excess, the gap between rampant denominationalism and the pursuit of Christian unity, the disparity between poverty among many Pentecostals and the popularity of the prosperity gospel, the division between Oneness Pentecostals and their Trinitarian counterparts, and the worldview of Pentecostals beyond the confines of a religious movement. Those tensions form the essence of global Pentecostalism and represent the emergence of a global Christian world.
