It is hard to believe that five years ago this project started and now it is finally going to be published. The online version was active in late 2020 and now the print version will be published this month.
The rise of Pentecostalism is one of the most important changes in Christianity in the past century.
How many Pentecostals are there in the world? How did Pentecostalism grow so fast? What do Pentecostals believe? What role did revivals play like the Azusa Street Revival in the USA or the Mukti Mission Revival in India? What do Pentecostals experience when they speak in tongues, pray for healing, and seek prosperity?
The Encyclopedia answers such questions, drawing upon disciplines such as anthropology, biblical studies, economics, gender studies, history, theology, and other areas of related interest.
For details, see Brill's Encyclopedia of Global Pentecostalism.
