While there are a growing number of researchers who are exploring the political and social aspects of the global Renewal movement, few have provided sustained socio-economic analyses of this exploding transnational phenomenon. The editors and contributors to this volume offer perspectives stating that such assessments are important, especially in light of the growth of the Renewal movement in the two-thirds world. Further, assessment of the role of Renewal Christianity’s socio-economic practices may illuminate trends in the global economy that have broader implications and consequences.

Industry Reviews

"The stunning spread of Pentecostalism may be the most important religious reality of the late twentieth and earlytwenty-first centuries. But the movement is so multi-faceted it is hard to say: What does its growth mean for the globalized world or for the larger church? The burdgeoing of 'prosperity preaching' among Penecostals puts this question more pointedly. Why has this preaching been so well received? Is it a betrayal of the Gospel or retrieval of one of its vital overlooked dimensions? This balanced and well-documented collection addresses these and other issues about the fastest growing theological current in the fastest growing Christian movement. No one seriously concerned about the role of Christianity in thetwenty-first century should miss reading it." - Harvey Cox, author of The Future of Faith
