About-

This is a collection of essays on Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in Asia, a neglected but vitally important area of Christian studies. The many and various forms of Asian Pentecostalism certainly represent a truly remarkable expression of Christianity that will be with us for a long time to come, and we ignore this at our peril. This book presents Charismatic face of Christianity that is becoming its most prominent expression. The voices of these mostly Asian scholars are an important contribution to our understanding of Pentecostalism in Asia, they will open to the academic world new vistas in research and orientation, and they will set parameters for the future study of Christianity in the World's largest and most diverse continent. The book begins with thematic studies on Asian Charismatic Christianity, and then deals with the phenomenon in nine countries in three different regions, South Asia, South East Asia and East Asia, followed by conclusions. This is an important contribution to our understanding of global Christianity that should not be missed.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book is a very important and long awaited publication giving hitherto unpublished information about our very rich heritage as Asian Pentecostals. It will be a standard reference book for many years to come."
Dr. David Yonggi Cho, Senior Pastor,
Yoido FuIl Gospel Church, Seoul, South Korea.

"It's most encouraging to see the publication of this important collection of papers reflecting the ministry and experience of the Holy Spirit in the life of the churches in Asia. The vital importance of the subject is not a matter only for the churches in Asia but the whole church of God, if it is to be renewed and revitalized for the intense challenges of the coming years."
The Rt. Rev. Dr. John Chew, Bishop of Anglican Diocese Singapore; formerly Principal, Trinity Theological College, Singapore

"This volume is a first in the study of Asian Pentecostalism at several levels. It provides us with the first 'big picture' view of the varieties of Charismatic religion in the most populous region of the world while at the same time offering in-depth cameos of specific churches in specific situations there. This book comes highly recommended for use in courses on global Pentecostalism, Asian Church History, Modern Church History, as well as a resource for those who want to know what God is saying though the Charismatic face of Christianity in Asia."
Professor. Dr Cecil M. Robeck Jr., Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA, USA

"The unprecedented growth of Pentecostalism, especially in Asia, is one of the most remarkable aspects of the religious history of the twentieth century, with major implications for the global growth and development of Christianity in the twenty-first century. Combining breadth of coverage with depth of analysis, this definitive work is an essential guide to the movement for all concerned with the future of Christianity, both in Asia itself, and in Asian communities in the West."
Alister McGrath, Professor if Historical Theology, Oxford University
