Between Babel and Pentecost

Transnational Pentecostalism in Africa and Latin America

"A great read for anyone wanting to thnk about how to interpret contemporary religious trends, and for those versed in Euro-American forms of Pentecostalism to consider how non-Western variations may challenge and expand the theoretical repertoire on the subject." — Religious Studies Review

"" — African Studies Review

Over the past two decades, Latin American and African societies have experienced the phenomenal growth of Pentecostal movements. This book examines the subject from different perspectives, taking into consideration the important transnational character of such movements and their tendency to foster identities which transcend the national and cultural context in which they begin.
