Global Pentecostalism: The New Face of Christian Social Engagement
September 3, 2007
Based on field research by Donald Miller and Tetsunao Yamamori, this book and accompanying DVD examine the shift of Christianity’s center of gravity to the developing world. It contains extensive research on the role of Christianity, particularly Pentecostalism, in twenty different countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe. The book and DVD provide a wide-ranging portrait of a new social movement developing in Pentecostalism. The book explores themes such as social activism, social justice, and worship in the Christian faith and includes interviews with pastors and religious leaders from around the world. Miller and Yamamori particularly note how the movement's focus on serving children and youth through education and transmission of egalitarian values regarding human worth can contribute to the growth of democratic societies.
