Item description for Spirits of Globalization: The Growth of Pentecostalism and Experiental Spiritualities in a Global Age by Sturla J. Stalsett...

Overview
Spirits of Globalization provides a contemporary, trans-cultural and inter-disciplinary attempt to answer questions about the connection between the forces that drive globalisation and the phenomenal growth of Pentecostalism. It looks at links between the liberation movement and the Pentecostal movement, asks questions about the implications of the Pentecostalization of religion in the global age, is the growth of Pentecostalism a form of adaptation or resistance to post-modern capitalism? Does it represent recourse to the firm and rigid religiosity of pre-modernity, or rather a leap of faith into the fragmented post-modern conditions in the poor mega-cities of the globe? The book doesn't merely raise the issues for discussion but attempts to provide answers. Taking the seminal work of Harvey Cox on Pentecostalism as a starting point, theologians and sociologists of religion from four continents discern the 'spirit of globalization' 100 years after Max Weber wrote his groundbreaking analysis on the protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism.

Publishers Description
This book is a contemporary attempt to answer questions about the connections between the forces that drive Globalisation and the phenomenal growth of Pentecostalism. Theologians and Sociologists from four continents discuss and provide answers to questions such as: is the growth of Pentecostalism a resistance to post-modern capitalism? Does it represent a recourse to the religiosity of pre-modernity? Or, is it a leap of faith into the fragmented post-modern conditions in the poor mega-cities of the world? The answers are inter-disciplinary in approach, using a variety of different critical methods such as sociological, psychological and anthropological methods, in their attempt to use lived examples from around the world in their quest for answers. However the book centres on theological themes common in each of these contexts, as they move to bring out the inspiration and challenges of these experiential spiritualities so far, and too long, ignored by modern theology. Sturla J Stalsett is associate professor and leader of the research program in Religion in a Globalised Age, at the Faculty of Theology, University of Oslo.
