Drawing upon the scholarship of eminent academics and practitioners in the field of Pentecostal and Charismatic studies, Pentecostals and Charismatics in Britain puts into the public domain theological and sociological literature that posits contemporary thinking in key areas of British Pentecostal and Charismatic thought.

Although part of a worldwide Christian spirituality, Pentecostals and Charismatics in the UK are rooted in British religiosity dating back to at least the 1920’s. However, the emergence of migrant communities from the Caribbean and Africa since the 1950’s has tended to attract popular attention and, consequentially, has come to represent the popular public face of Pentecostals and Charismatics in Britain. Latterly, however, an intellectual base has begun resisting inappropriate categorisation and the anti-intellectual reputation that has attached itself to Pentecostalism.

Edited by Joe Aldred, this stellar collection of essays includes contributions from some of the leading thinkers in British Pentecostal studies. The anthology comes at a time when Pentecostals and Charismatics are seen to be a crucial element in the diversification of academic theology, and a major centre of growth in the UK church.

A pdf leaflet for you to download, print and distribute can be found here. Further details on this and other launch events can be found on the Churches Together in England website.
