Charisma Media 2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity

Overwhelming evidence reveals contemporary Christianity roots in Pentecost! The world is taking notice and realizing that the fastest-growing segment in Christianity has an undeniable history with a pattern and a rich, deep foundation dating back to the New Testament. Explore overwhelming evidence that reveals how the gifts of the Holy Spirit not only have existed in the centuries since the early apostles, but have also survived the Middle Ages, the politicized church of Europe, and have experienced a spectacular revival this century. 2000 Years of Charismatic Christianity offers convincing evidence that the modern Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are rooted in the two-thousand-year history of the church. Those who identify with these movements will be affirmed in the experience of the Holy Spirit and will gain a new respect and appreciation for the movement of which they are a part. Those outside the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements will also benefit by reading this volume in that they will gain an understanding of this movement that Harvard professor Dr. Harvey Cox says is "reshaping religion in the 21st century."

This is a powerful book that I would suggest for all pastors and laity alike. God's hand has always been upon His church and this book serves as a reminder that He always has a remnant and that His power is just as real today.

I give this book a 5-plus!! When I first read this book as a seminarian for church history, I did not realize the depth of movement of the Holy Spirit throughtout the history of the church. Professor Hyatt meticulously and resourcefully illustrates the roots of the church and shows that the charismatic/pentecostal movement is not a latter-rain "stepchild" but an integral part of who we are as the community of faith from the beginning. I recommend this scholarly and thought-provoking book to anyone who wants to know more about church history.
