Chapter Summary

What implications, if any, does Pentecostalism in Argentina, or even in all of Latin America, have for global Christianity? The author saw two implications; the first is that with a growing number of Pentecostals in the southern hemisphere the relative balance of Protestant Christianity in the world will be dramatically affected. The second implication is the globalising potential of Argentine Pentecostalism. Argentine Pentecostalism has much in common with the Pentecostalism of other areas of growth in the world,particularly Korea andAfrica. A comparison with the Argentine context could prove a fruitful avenue of study. Argentine Pentecostalism, along with Korean, and Nigerian for example, needs to be seen as a localised version of a globalised and globalising phenomenon.
