This book is deliciously written. I found myself swept up in the contextualization of this important movement. Cox writes it in a way that seems fitting to the movement he is commenting on, like a grand story. I like his balance and his hesitation at just adding to the attacks Pentecostals have had to endure. He outlines some of the important challenges, especially in terms of eschatology. And his discussions on primal religious impulses is fascinating. This book is definitely a worthwhile read from a respectful theologian on a topic that is so important today.
