A general introduction to the book describes the history and theology of the early Pentecostal movement and its significance to the contemporary Christian world. A brief biography introduces each of the 16 influential leaders whose voices are recorded here. Douglas Jacobsen is Distinguished Professor of Church History and Theology at Messiah College, Grantham, Pennsylvania. His other books include "Thinking in the Spirit: Theologies of the Early Pentecostal Movement" (IUP, 2003), "Re-Forming the Center: American Protestantism, 1900 to the Present" (with William Vance Trollinger), and "Scholarship and Christian Faith: Enlarging the Conversation" (with Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen).Über den Autor:
