9780310393719: Theological Roots of Pentecostalism

Dayton explains how Pentecostalism grew out of Methodism and the nineteenth-century holiness revivals. Martin E. Marty calls this work a very important statement . . . one without which subsequent commentators on Pentecostalism are not likely to give intelligent accounts.

About the Author:

Donald W. Dayton is Professor of Theology and Ethics at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary in Lombard, Illinois. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Chicago in 1980.

Review:

...the clearest of distillations. But what shines through the most is his fairness...his contribution to Pentecostal studies is a 'blessing;' but its value for evangelical historiography is a 'second blessing.' (Church History)

...An illuminating piece of work that concludes with a highly valuable and extensive bibliographical essay and with three indexes... (Adris Newsletter)

...A much needed tool. He makes it possible for us to see Pentecostals, so often dismissed as a fringe group, as intimately connected with the so-called mainstream of American religion. (Theology Today)

...magisterial...should become the standard work on the theological matrix of Pentecostal self-understanding. (Ecumenical Review)

In applying the methods of historical theology to a movement that has rarely been approached in this manner, the author breaks new ground and suggests a closer relationship of Pentecostalism to Reformed and Wesleyan Protestantism than has sometimes been recognized...Very helpful to scholars and a useful addition to undergraduate and graduate collections of American religious, intellectual, and social history. (Choice)
