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.

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.
