Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements - Stanley M. Burgess and Gary B. McGee (editors), Patrick H. Alexander (Associate Editor), 1988, hardback is 913 pages long and weighs just less than 1.5KG.

The Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements is a great dictionary and like most dictionary I have not read from covet to cover, but have searched for specific information related to Pentecostals and Charismatic's and have found what I was after. I have also flicked through the pages to what I could find and found the entries most enjoyable and informative, which include reference books cited (bibliography) from for in-depth study for each article.

The book includes, a list of contributors (a lot), list of abbreviations, an introduction to the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements and then jumps straight into the A-Z from Abrams, Minnie to Zopfi, Jakob. The book includes more than 800 articles, focusing primarily on North America but also to some extent cover the European scenes, such as the Jeffreys brothers from Wales.

The book also includes many black and white photos (more than one hundred) of individuals, churches, conceptions (a Christian theme park), buildings and meetings, like Oral Roberts. The Dictionary is good, easy on the eyes (well laid out) and cover related Pentecostal and Charismatic topics such as the laying on off hands, music, statistics and healing.

Excellent(but too old) Jan. 25 2000
By Chris Johnson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This may be the best examination of Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity available in one volume. All aspects of the history and theology of the movement are examined respectfully and in great detail and its more bizarre manifestations are not covered up or ignored.
This book's major drawback is its age. It desperately needs updating; a great deal has happened in Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity since 1988. The Trinity Broadcasting Network barely registers here, and such current Pentecostal and charismatic luminaries as T. D. Jakes, Clarence McClendon, Benny Hinn, Rod Parsley, and others do not show up at all.
This book is as good a reference source for Pentecostalism as exists. If it were updated, it would be even better.

I keep turning back to this book Oct. 16 2012
By J. Michael Nace - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although this book was published in the late 1980s I still keep turning back to it as it is rare today to find an encyclopedia of this type containing all the wealth of information this volume contains. If you can get past the lack of current updates you will enjoy the biographies of hundreds of well known personalities who had gift ministries up until the late 1980s. I would really like to believe many are still in the ministry. Bottom line is for me there is a famine of such ministries today so just for inspirational value it would be worth having this book in your library.
Great addition for my Libary April 17 2013

It is a great resource for those interested in understanding Pentecostalism, and its history. It is also a good value for the price. I highly recommend it.
