An important study sheds new light on the amazing spread of Pentecostalism throughout the world. In this fresh and original study, Allen Anderson traces the origins of Pentecostalism and its astonishing spread from many centers.

Beginning with a probing examination of theorigins of Pentecostalism, Anderson goes on to mine the diaries and letters of Pentecostal leaders in the United States, India, China and East Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and Latin America and the Carribbean to give the flavor of the global movement and its first quarter-century.

Finally, he offers a penetrating overview of both the theology and practice of pentecostals in such areas as healing, war, relations with other religions, politics, leadership, and sectarianism.

Allan Anderson

Allan Anderson is Reader in Pentecostal Studies in the Department of Theology at the University of Birmingham. As well as carrying out comprehensive field research in ten African countries and Korea, he taught theological students in Africa for 15 years before moving to the University of Birmingham.

'Spreading Fires is a scholarly treatment of a neglected part of church history. 100 years on from the period covered it is a timely reminder that early Pentecostalism was primarily a missionary revival movement. Anderson has been careful to be globally inclusive in his treatment of the subject matter and not just focus on the Western world as the traditional epicentre of the spreading fires.' -- Amazon review 2009
