This book deals with the largest global shift in religion over the last forty years, the astonishing rise of Pentecostalism and charismatic Christianity. Conservative estimates suggest that a quarter of a billion people are now members of Pentecostal churches, mainly in the developing world. David Martin, a prominent British sociologist, sensitively discerns the history, politics, and economics of the movement's appeal from the poor in Latin America to the new middle classes of southeast Asia and and draws conclusions about the future of Christianity itself.
