9780814772607: The Anthropology of Global Pentecostalism and Evangelicalism

The phenomenal growth of Pentecostalism and evangelicalism around the world in recent decades has forced us to rethink what it means to be religious and what it means to be global. The success of these religious movements has revealed tensions and resonances between the public and the private, the religious and the cultural, and the local and the global. This volume provides a wide ranging and accessible, as well as ethnographically rich, perspective on what has become a truly global religious trend, one that is challenging conventional analytical categories within the social sciences. This book informs students and seasoned scholars alike about the character of Pentecostalism and evangelicalism not only as they have spread across the globe, but also as they have become global movements. Adopting a broadly anthropological approach, the chapters synthesize the existing literature on Pentecostalism and evangelicalism even as they offer new analyses and critiques. They show how the study of Pentecostalism and evangelicalism provides a fresh way to approach classic anthropological themes; they contest the frequent characterization of these movements as conservative religious, social, and political forces; and they argue that Pentecostalism and evangelicalism are significant not least because they encourage us to reflect on the intersections of politics, materiality, morality and law. Ultimately, the volume leaves us with a clear sense of the cultural and social power, as well as the theoretical significance, of forms of Christianity that we can no longer afford to ignore.

Review:

“Makes a significant contribution to the literature on Pentecostalism, above all by gathering together the work of such high-quality researchers, and offering a context in which to think across their scholarship in one place.”-John Burdick,Syracuse University

“[I]t does offer some fresh perspectives and analyses of charismatic Christianity around the world and helps establish the anthropology of Pentecostalism and evangelicalism as a valid and indeed crucial specialty for the modern world, while usefully challenging some tired assumptions about Protestantism, Christianity, or for that matter religion.”-Anthropology Review Database

“As I would expect from two such accomplished editors, this volume is an outstanding  contribution. . . . The introduction alone is worth the price of the book.”-Brian Howell,Wheaton College
