This collection of essays analyzes in a scholarly and dispassionate way one of the least understood and appreciated transnational phenomena of the late twentieth century: the upsurge of charismatic Christianity. The book traces surprising international linkages, such as the critical role played by Christians in China. The book adds substantially to the new and growing literature on this subject.
