A little over one hundred years ago the Holy Spirit breathed a fresh awakening into little communities in Topeka, Kansas (1901) and then on Azusa Street in California (1906). Over the past century this spiritual awakening has touched every country on the globe. By 2014 there were 631 million Pentecostals in the world, comprising a quarter of all Christians, and that number is forecast to grow to 800 million by 2025. This book offers a window into some of the unique features of this phenomenal movement through expert contributions from some of the world's preeminent Pentecostal theologians. It presents a Pentecostal perspective on important theological themes that pastors, theologians, and lay leaders are grappling with in the twenty-first century. ""This volume is an outstanding compendium of scholarly and reflective contributions written from diverse perspectives by globally well-known and those on the way to becoming better-known authors from around the world. Indispensable reading for all interested in the fastest growing and rapidly maturing Christian movement in the world."" --Peter Kuzmic, Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary ""A fine collection of essays by an impressive list of scholars about one of the most vibrant and important Christian movements today."" --Miroslav Volf, Professor, Yale Divinity School ""A very Pentecostal collection of essays by some of the finest Pentecostal scholars, this book gives a state-of-the-art view of current debates within Pentecostal theologies."" --Allan H.
