Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the contexts of the birth of the Spiritual Mapping movement. First, it examines the influence of Donald A. McGavrans Church Growth Movement in the US. Second, it looks at Charles H. Krafts missionary anthropology. It was Kraft who applied the missionary anthropology of the Church Growth Movement to Spiritual Mapping. Third, it examines the origin of Neo-Pentecostalism. It appears that Spiritual Mapping was influenced by and eventually become part of Neo-Pentecostalism. It then looks at Argentina, which Spiritual Mapping presents as the country in which its concepts were tested and from which the newly developed model was exported all over the world. Argentinas function and influence needs to be determined. The chapter concludes with a few aspects of the context of the cultural transformation of the US in the second half of the 20th century, without which Spiritual Mapping cannot be understood.
