About-

Wesleyanism is a movement of hope. Wesleyans and their Holiness and Pentecostal offspring pray and work with the expectancy that the love and power of God will transform hearts and lives, renew the church, and bring compassion, healing, and justice to a suffering world. In a variety of ways, from holiness of heart and life to bodily healing to the abolition of slavery, they anticipated the life of the coming kingdom of heaven to already be breaking into the present through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Anticipating Heaven Below explores their optimism of grace, examining its pitfalls as well as its promise. Henry H. Knight seeks to enable and inspire present generations within Wesleyan, Holiness, and Pentecostal movements to proclaim with confidence the promise of heaven below, and to do so with passion and integrity.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Henry Knight offers an important contribution to the scholarship of the Wesleyan-Holiness and Pentecostal movements. Combining both a historical and a constructive theological approach, Anticipating Heaven Below gives a fresh perspective on experiential and social holiness. . . . Scholars, pastors, and laity alike will find it an exciting new text that re-energizes the best of the past for a hope of an abundant future."
--Diane Leclerc, Professor of Historical Theology and Homiletics, Northwest Nazarene University, Idaho

"Taking a sanctificationist approach, Knight broadens and deepens Christian aspirations for the life to come that takes seriously experiencing God in the concrete realities of human life. This book makes a compelling case for the beauty of Wesleyan theological trajectories that readily engage the challenges we face today."
--Sang-Ehil Han, Vice President for Academics, Pentecostal Theological Seminary, Tennessee
