Overview

How and why is Christianity's center of gravity shifting to the developing world? To understand this rapidly growing phenomenon, Donald E. Miller and Tetsunao Yamamori spent four years traveling the globe, conducting extensive on-the-ground research in twenty different countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the former Soviet Union. The result is this vividly detailed book and accompanying DVD, which together contain the most comprehensive information available on contemporary Pentecostal ministries outside the United States and Western Europe. Rich with scenes from everyday life, this work dispels many stereotypes as it builds a wide-ranging, nuanced portrait of a major, new social movement. The DVD features footage of Pentecostal religious worship in many forms, a mass demonstration, and the work of social ministries, and it includes interviews with Pentecostal pastors and leaders from around the world.
