Synopsis:
Cuando entre 1909 y 1910 llegaron a America Latina los primeros testigos del pentecostalismo, lejos estaban de suponer aquellos improvisados misioneros la magnitud que alcanzaria en pocas decadas el movimiento al que daban origen. No existen cifras confiables sobre la poblacion pentecostal del continente, pero basta decir que la Iglesia Evangelica seria hoy una minoria imperceptible si no fuera por la presencia pentecostal. No es posible entender al pentecostalismo latinoamericano sin tener en claro las caracteristicas de su origen. Donald Dayton se ocupa de esta tarea, y lo hace con meticulosidad admirable. Por razones obvias, en su investigacion no estan presentes Latinoamerica ni la historia actual del movimiento pentecostal, Dayton trabaja en lo que seria la prehistoria del pentecostalismo latinoamericano. Sin embargo, el lector descubrira que mucho de lo ocurrido en el pentecostalismo de America Latina solo es comprensible a partir de aquellas raices teologicas que aqui se analizan y que pueden sintetizarse en cuatro afirmaciones cristologicas: Jesucristo salva, sana, bautiza con el Espiritu Santo y viene otra vez. El aporte de Dayton en esta obra nos permite completar el cuadro que hasta ahora habian pintado a medias los historiadores y sociologos del pentecostalismo. Between 1909 and 1910, when the first Pentecostal witnesses arrived in Latin America, those improvised missionaries could not imagine the heights their movement would reach in a few short decades. There are no reliable demographics about the history of Pentecostal membership in Latin America, but its fair to say that without the Pentecostal presence, the evangelical church would be a imperceptible minority there. It is impossible to understand Latin American Pentecostalism without a clear understanding of its origin. Donald Dayton embarks on this task, and accomplishes it with admirable detail. Daytons investigation focuses on the pre-history of the Pentecostal movement in Latin America. Nevertheless, the reader will discover that much of what has happened in Latin American Pentecostalism could only be understood by exploring those theological roots, which could be summarized in four Christological affirmations: Jesus saves, heals, baptizes with the Holy Spirit, and will come again. Daytons book enables us to complete the picture that other historians and sociologists of Pentecostalism have partially painted.
