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.
