The growth of Spirit-empowered Christianity has been nothing short of phenomenal. From a handful of believers in the early twentieth century to over six million people in almost every culture and denomination today, those who embrace the Holy Spirit and His gifts are not the fastest-growing religious group in the world. But if any generation ceases to emphasize the Holy Spirit’s power, the movement likely will lose its distinction. This second of four volumes is an authoritative collection from nearly two dozen leaders and scholars of the Spirit-empowered movement in Latin America. Focusing on the history and future of the movement, these world-renowned scholars address the theological and cultural challenges facing Pentecostals throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and share emerging insights on how to meet them.
