Chapter Summary

In this chapter the author returns to the main hypothesis that this investigation upholds the view that the 'success' of Pentecostalism, over other forms of Protestantism is, at least in part, related to its ability to grow in the subsoil of the pre-existing popular religious worldview. He is particularly interested in the implications that the substrata of assumptions has for the church's evangelistic practices and the resulting types of conversion produced by this interaction. The chapter examines several examples of Pentecostal evangelism and conversion asking, can the conversion which is produced create "new creatures" in Christ, i.e. transformed persons, who are absorbing a new worldview, who demonstrate allegiance to God and the Church, and ultimately who are also committed to serving their needy world, or who are at least moving in that direction?.
