The book considers charismatic discourses on men, marriage and family life. Constructions of family life in the new churches correspond with a broader cultural shift towards the individuated nuclear family system. The gender discourses of the charismatic churches are also spiritualised", and the book considers the role of spiritual power in interpreting gendered social change. The book concludes that charismatic Christianity represents an instance of hybridity" in which local and global gender discourses intersect.
