9780521660723: The Globalisation of Charismatic Christianity (Cambridge Studies in Ideology and Religion)

This book is about conservative Protestant Christians and their spread around the globe. It focuses on "Health and Wealth" Christians. A ministry in Scandinavia is shown to be closely linked to evangelicals in other parts of the world, particularly the United States. The book provides the first extended account by an anthropologist of a Health and Wealth ministry. It makes a major contribution to an understanding of the material lives of these Christians: their art, architecture and uses of electronic technologies such as television, videos and the Internet.

Review:

"[T]he best example to date of how ethnography can illuminate the complex relationship between charismatic Christianity and the globalization of high technology and consumerism." Journal of the Society for the Anthropology of Europe

"This anthrpological study of the Swedish neocharismatic movement, Word of Life (Livets Ord), makes an important contribution to both globalization studies and the analysis of Pentecostalism." Missiology

"...Coleman presents us with a solid anthropological analysis that helps to put flesh on the world of globalization theories and does so with a fine sense of balance between insider and outsider social-scientific perspectives. His presentation is readable and accessible to a wider audience than specialized scholars." Journal of Religion

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This 2000 book analyses the revival of charismatic Protestant Christianity as an example of globalization. Simon Coleman shows that, along with many social movements, these religious conservatives are negotiating their own interpretations of global and postmodern processes. They are constructing an evangelical arena of action and meaning within the liminal, chaotic space of the global. The book examines globalization not only as a social process, but also as an embodied practice involving forms of language and ritualized movement. Charismatic Christianity is presented through its material culture - art, architecture and consumer products - as well as its rhetoric and theology. The book provides an account of the incorporation of electronic media such as television, videos and the Internet into Christian worship. Issues relating to the conduct of fieldwork in contexts of globalization are raised in an account which is also a major ethnography of a Faith ministry. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521660723
