Overview

Charles Edwin Jones's landmark 1974 work has now been expanded into a three-part series, which breaks up his original book into 4 volumes on The Wesleyan Holiness Movement (2 Volumes), The Keswick Movement, and The Holiness-Pentecostal Movement. This volume introduces researchers to the leaders, ideas, and institutions of the Keswick Movement, a strand of holiness teaching that was embraced by many evangelicals who came from the more Calvinistic wing of Protestantism, especially Anglicans, Baptists, Congregationalists, and Presbyterians. The Keswick Movement is the most difficult of the three main holiness traditions to delineate. Unlike the Wesleyan Holiness and Holiness Pentecostal traditions, the Keswick Movement has not gone through a definitive period of careful theological refining and institutional boundary setting. The series provides materials for study of doctrine, worship, institutional development, and personalities, as well as antecedent and related movements. It will serve to illustrate the history both of the Holiness Movement and the rural-urban transition in which it developed. Theological reconsiderations, realignments, and changes, as well as the nearly exponential growth of the Movement since the original book's publication, make these new publications almost absolutely necessary. The guides retain all of the good and strong qualities exhibited in the first edition, and have strengthened them. Students and scholars of the Holiness Movement will not want to be without this series.
