Overview

Beginning in the 1960s, Neo-Pentecostalism transformed the way thousands in the mainline churches viewed the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the way in which those Christians and many others worshipped. At the heart of a large body of polemical and pastoral literature produced by proponents and critics of the movement is a dynamic picture of Christianity in the last three decades. The Charismatic Movement consists of more than 11,000 entries reflecting the responses of organizations, churches, schools, and individuals both favorable to and critical of the beliefs and practices of this movement. Materials are grouped when possible by denominational family. Indication of the professed attitude of the individual or organization is given.

Jones' indefatigable effort has resulted in 10,910 entries, all carefully organized within 4 distinct parts...
Wesleyan Theological Journal
...the work provides important bibliographic data for virtually all Christian bodies and becomes an important reference tool for serious students of modern Christianity. The remarkable detail of this work provides a rare contemporary glimpse into the rise of a popular religious moevement. This is an important resource that demonstrates the significance of the Charismatic Movement. Current and future students of late twentieth-century Christianity will find it an indispensable object lesson and a comprehensive reference work.
Pneuma
Scholars of the Pentecostal/carismatic tradition are once again in debt of Charles Edwin Jones...like a recent advertisement for the Yellow Pages has announced, I am tempted to claim that 'if you can't find it in [The Charismatic Movement], it probably doesn't exist.' There appear to be no major lacunae... an incredibly helpful work.
Book Reviews
Jones has been a significant, if not "cutting-edge," voice in Holiness studies. This is an enormously helpful, possibly indispensable work...makes a significant contribution to the study of historical theology...should become a part of all reference libraries committed to contemporary religious studies. Jones has contributed much to scholarship's understanding of the diverse and inclusive nature of Holiness-Penetecostal studies. This work further contributes to that understanding and challenges academia's understanding of what "doing theology" is all about.
Methodist History
...all must marvel at Jones' remarkable ability to track down and organize the vast amount of information that is included. Consequently, this set is indispensable for all theological libraries and upper-division undergraduate and graduate collections generally.
