Chapter Summary

The Pentecostal /Charismatic movement is a global phenomenon, accounting for an estimated 31 % of the worlds Christians. Pentecostalism is not only a global phenomenon it is also a globalising phenomenon. This is the introductory chapter of the book, which opens with a theoretical review of the relevant literature and closes with a theological reflection on the missiological implications of the findings. The author hopes that this book will help to further understand the Pentecostal movement in Argentina by taking the reader beyond generalities and into the life experiences of the believers. The book aims to give a voice to ordinary Pentecostal pastors and believers, as well as local academics reflecting on the movement, be they secular social scientists or theologians. The chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.
