"Unlike traditional Protestant and Catholic churches, whose memberships are dwindling, pentecostalism, the most experiential branch of Christianity, has become the fastest-growing form of worship on Earth, and, if present trends continue, could surpass even Catholicism by the turn of the century. From its obscure beginnings a hundred years ago in a tiny black church on Azusa Street in Los Angeles it has grown, especially in the past two decades, to over 410 million people worldwide, becoming the dominant expression of Christian worship in mega-cities throughout the world, from New York and Mexico City to Seoul, Korea. In an effort to understand its extraordinary appeal Harvey Cox has traveled the world to speak and worship with pentecostal congregations on four continents, and he has come to the conclusion that this explosion of spirituality represents a tidal change in what religion itself is and what it means to people."--BOOK JACKET.

-Publisher

Cox (religion, Harvard U.) explores the primal spirituality of Pentecostalism, the most experiential branch of Christianity, whose membership has grown to some 410 million people. He draws on his travels to Pentecostal congregations on four continents to discuss the origins and directions of the movement, and considers Christian Pentecostalism's incorporation of archaic spirituality in Europe, shamanism in the Asian Rim, and primal spirituality in Africa. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
-Publisher

The most experiential branch of Christianity has become the fastest growing form of worship on Earth. Harvard theologian Harvey Cox documents this extraordinary, yet largely unexamined, phenomenon, and tries to understand why this particular expression of spirituality has recently become appealing to so many people.
