Holiness-Pentecostal Tradtion: Charismatic Movements in the Twentieth Century

Holiness-Pentecostal Tradtion: Charismatic Movements in the Twentieth Century
Author: Vinson Synan

Called "a pioneer contribution" by Church History when it was first published in 1971 as The Holiness-Pentecostal Movement in the United States, this volume has now been revised and enlarged by Vinson Synan to account for the incredible changes that have occurred in the church world during the last quarter of the twentieth century. Synan brings together the stories of the many movements usually listed as "holiness," "pentecostal," or "charismatic," and shows that there is an identifiable "second blessing" tradition in Christianity that began with the Catholic and Anglican mystics, that was crystallized in the teaching of John Wesley, and that was further perpetuated through the holiness and Keswick movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to the appearance of modern Pentecostalism. Synan then chronicles the story of the spread of Pentecostalism around the world after the heady days of the Azusa Street awakening, with special attention given to the beginnings of the movement in those nations where Pentecostalism has become a major religious force. He also examines the rise of various mainline-church charismatic movements that have their roots in Pentecostalism. Because of the explosive growth of the Pentecostal movement in the last half of the century, Pentecostals and Charismatics now constitute the second largest family of Christians in the world after the Roman Catholic Church. "This could well be the major story of Christianity in the twentieth century," writes Synan. "Pentecostalism has grown beyond a mere passing 'movement' . . . and can now be seen as a major Christian 'tradition' alongside the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Reformation Protestant traditions." The Holiness-Pentecostal Tradition will continue to be an important handbook for shaping our understanding of this phenomenon.

Review Quotes:
Christianity Today, Number 15 on the Top 25 Books of the Year list (1998)

Charisma "As a historian, Synan offers powerful explanations and conclusions."

Christian Scholars Review "An indispensable and highly readable account of the origins and growth of what is clearly the most significant movement in the twentieth-century church . . . With the growing 'charismaticization' of the contemporary church, this book should be of interest to Christians in all academic disciplines."

Clergy Journal "A fine historical work that will interest those engaged in the history of the American church. . . This is a book that makes for fascinating reading and is well worth the investment of time and money."

Publishers Weekly "This revision of a book originally published in 1971 incorporates five new chapters and further strengthens Synan's detailed and highly readable history of the various 'second-blessing' movements that form a major branch of Christianity. . . Synan provides an authoritative, highly documented and nuanced survey of a tradition that continues to thrive worldwide."



🕊️The Awakening the Domestic Church (ADC) initiative was inspired by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012, aiming to reinvigorate faith in God’s vision for traditional family life, which is seen as the cornerstone of all healthy societies. ADC emphasizes that Christian families, as "domestic churches," play a crucial role in mirroring the Trinity and embodying Jesus' presence within communities. This movement addresses concerns about the departure from Judeo-Christian moral foundations in society, a warning issued by Pope Paul VI in the 1960s, and emphasizes the church's mission to evangelize. Pope Saint John Paul II's introduction of the new evangelization, which focuses on contemporary methods to preach the Gospel and uphold the sacramental life, further supports this mission. He tasked Cardinal Ratzinger with writing the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the 1990s to ensure a correct understanding of the faith. Efforts were also made to restore full communion within the church by engaging with biblically-oriented Christians from other traditions. In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI established a new Papal office, mobilizing over 800 individuals to encourage families to evangelize their neighborhoods, highlighting that a single family could influence 30 to 100 families through their evangelization efforts.

Embark with us on a mission to deepen spiritual connections and unite our communities in Christ. Let's spark a transformation, impacting each neighborhood heart by heart with Jesus's love.
