Description: How and why is Christianity's center of gravity shifting to the developing world? To understand this rapidly growing phenomenon, Donald E. Miller and Tetsunao Yamamori spent four years traveling the globe conducting extensive on-the-ground research in twenty different countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the former Soviet Union. The result is this vividly detailed book and accompanying DVD, which together contain the most comprehensive information available on Pentecostalism, the fastest growing religion in the world. Miller and Yamamori focus in particular on one expression of Pentecostalism, "Progressive Pentecostal" churches that are transforming local communities by addressing the AIDS crisis, providing medical care to people in impoverished neighborhoods, giving disadvantaged children educational opportunities, and assisting people to develop business skills. Their compelling and accessibly written book, rich with scenes from everyday life, dispels many stereotypes about this religion as it builds a wide-ranging, nuanced portrait of a major, new social movement. The DVD features footage of Pentecostal religious worship, marches, and activities, and includes interviews with Pentecostal pastors and leaders from around the world.
