Encyclopedia of Christianity, 5 vols, 1999-2005 by Bromiley, Geoffrey
Call Number: 230.03 E92 (REL REF)
Comprehensive work describing Christianity in its various configurations throughout the world. Includes articles covering early Christianity in addition to developments over the centuries. Also treats other world religions and philosophies.
The Pentecostal and Charismatic movements emphasize the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Members of Pentecostal congregations, seeking to emulate the apostles at Pentecost, want to experience being filled with the Holy Spirit. The Charismatic movement, also known as neo-Pentecostalism, emphasizes personal religious experience and divine gifts as well, but stresses the relationship between believers and a charismatic leader. The great appeal of both movements is the promise of empowerment through the gift of the Holy Spirit. Using a socio-cultural, anthropological approach, the work explains the concepts, practices and sociology of both movements, analysing their impact on regional cultures. Although both movements have adopted some aspects of fundamentalist theology, coverage demonstrates how they differ from fundamentalism.
