Making up approximately 20 percent of South India's Protestants, Pentecostals are an influential part of India's Christian culture, yet there is a distinct lack of scholarly focus on this increasingly large group. This careful, well-informed study by Michael Bergunder ably fills that gap.After a brief introduction outlining the history of the worldwide growth of Pentecostalism, Bergunder delves into the history of the South Indian Pentecostal movement in the first section of his book. The second section gives a systematic profile of the current movement in South India, based on formal interviews with nearly 200 leading pastors and evangelists, as well as a wide range of source materials. Bergunder finishes his work with prospects for the future.Three detailed appendices--a large section of selected biographies, lists of missionaries and leadership positions, and church statistics--and an extended bibliography offer ample ground for further research.
