Reviews

"As I read this book, I sensed a fresh new wave of the same Holy Spirit that fell upon the nations on the Day of Pentecost taking place in various forms across the social and cultural diversity in the Global South. This spiritual renewal takes place in the creative tension and dynamic convergence between local and global, order and ardor, cognitive and spiritual. Herein is reflected the soul of conviction and a prophetic voice of courage, the tender edges of compassion, and the strong heart of the Gospel. This book creates a bridge between academic and applied interests that is much needed in the contemporary church del Norte." - Jesse Miranda, Founder and Director of the Jesse Miranda Center for Hispanic Leadership and Director of the Center for Urban Studies & Hispanic Leadership, Vanguard University, USA

"Medina and Alfaro have 'gifted' the church with a provocative and insightful witness of the intellectual maturity of Latin American/Latino Pentecostal thought. Pentecostals and This book offers an important window into the breadth and variety of Latino/a Pentecostal voices. This book is a must read for all persons (Pentecostal or not) who are interested in the life and mission of the church." - Rev. Eldin Villafane, Professor of Christian Social Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, USA, and author of Manda Fuego Senor: Introduccion al Pentecostalismo

"This collection renews, broadens, and furthers the theological conversation about Latino Pentecostalism begun by Eldin Villafañe and Samuel Solivan. The expanded interdisciplinary and hemispheric conversation moves from the critical to the creative and the descriptive to the prescriptive, and provides readers with a nuanced understanding of sui generis processes of theological development and of Pentecostals' contemporary and prospective liberative social engagement in las Américas." - Daniel Ramírez, University of Michigan, USA, and author, Migrating Faith: Pentecostalism in the United States and Mexico in the Twentieth Century
