Chapter Summary

History, as David Martin has noted, is volatile. Indeed, the effect of the new scholarship is to suggest that perhaps Christianity was always part of a universalist project, and that it needs to be studied as part of a process of worldwide reticulation, feedback and reinforcement. It is this latter which, in this chapter, will be called the phenomenon of 'global return'. This is nowhere more visible than in the remarkable case of the Latter Rain revival which emerged in Canada in 1948. This 'global return' of the Latter Rain can be demonstrated through a case study - in the case of the chapter, the case relates to the percolation of Latter Rain teachings through Pentecostal networks in South- east Asia and Australia. There is a sense in which the Latter Rain movement was both the end and the beginning of early Pentecostalism.
