About-

This book traces the historical and theological development of the Holy Spirit movement in Korea through six successive periods. These periods are characterized by repentance and revival (1900-1920), persecution and suffering under Japanese occupation (1920-1940), confusion and division (1940-1960), explosive revival in which the Pentecostal movement played a major role in the rapid growth of Korean churches (1960-1980), the movement's reaching out to all denominations (1980-2000), and the new context's demanding the Holy Spirit movement to open new horizons in its mission engagement (2000-). The volume also discusses the relationship between this movement and other religions such as shamanism, and looks forward to further engagement with issues of concern in the larger society.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Readers will learn the characteristics of the Holy Spirit movement of the Korean church, the development and the contribution of the Holy Spirit movement to the Korean church and . . . World Christianity. This publication is one of the best academic achievements of Dr. Lee."
 
David Yonggi Cho, Senior Pastor Emeritus,
Yoido Full Gospel Church
 
"There is no way of understanding the most recent phase of Church history without taking account of Korea; and Dr Lee has given his readers an excellent place to start that reckoning."
 
Andrew F. Walls,
Liverpool Hope University
 
"The phenomenon of vital Christianity in South Korea is well known. Enlisting existing histories in Korean and English and weaving together a new telling of the story that includes previously unknown primary sources, Lee has given us a new look at the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Korean Church."
 
Cecil M. Robeck Jr.
Fuller Theological Seminary
 
"This is a most inspiring story of how the Holy Spirit movement has worked wonders for Koreans and Lee is uniquely placed to write it."
 
Daryl M. Balia, Edinburgh 2010

"Lee represents a new generation of Korean Pentecostal leadership that is not only scholarly, but open to the possibilities of mutual exploration of common roots and themes across the divides in Korean Christianity. This book does much to further this end . . . and I therefore commend this book . . . most warmly."
 
Allan H. Anderson, University of Birmingham
