Description

The major portion of the book is a review of the psychological research on Pentecostals and charismatics. The research is in large part a study of people who speak or pray in tongues. I also study the reaction of the churches from the psychological perspective. The other chapters in the book, that on the theological understanding of charism as a human experience, that on social theory as applied to the Pentecostal-charismatic movement, have as their function making understandable the dilemma of the churches as they were confronted with the phenomenon in their midst.
