Pentecostal congregations are among the fastest-growing churches in the world, but modern-day Pentecostalism had an inconspicuous start. It began in a church on Azusa Street in Los Angeles in 1906, spawning the Pentecostal Movement. The first section is a pictorial history of many of the events and people who have been a part of the Pentecostal/Charismatic world. The Azusa Street Centennial will:
•Chronicle Pentecostalism’s growth, highlighting the events and people who have been a part of this movement •Look back at the Healing Revival and the Latter Rain Revival •Document the rise of the Charismatic Movement, highlighting important developments through the final decades of the twentieth century •Clearly outline the difference between Charismatic and Pentecostal churchesDestined to be a collector’s item, this book is the definitive resource for a historical, pictorial, and chronological record of the Azusa Street Revival.
