How many countries experienced a religious revival during the 20th century? According to this new book on church revival history, there were, at the very least, twenty such revivals occurring in various parts of the world. Revival swept from Asia to Australia, through America, and across the European continent; all within the space of one century. When did I begin writing The Twenty Revivals of the Twentieth Century? It was many years ago; I first took pen to paper and began jotting down some of the revivals that occurred over the last one-hundred years. At that time, the twentieth century had barely ended. Yet, looking back, the realization came that there were at the very least twenty revivals, many of which do not appear in other books of this nature. The fact that there were so many revivals may come as a surprise to some, considering it averages out at one spiritual awakening every five years! So, one could say, the early twentieth century was an era of Revivals. Why This Book? I wrote The Twentieth Revivals of the Century because there are so many stories that need to be told. Stories of sweeping revivals, which happened all across the globe. Spiritual awakenings that occurred in countries making headlines today--sometimes for all the wrong reasons. Nations like North Korea's Pyongyang, which had at one stage, in 1907, over 3,000 people in one church. Who would think when looking at the North Korea of today under the current regime, Pyongyang was once called the Jerusalem of East Asia! Then, there is Japan, which almost became a Christian nation, leading up to the twentieth century. At this time, Christianity began gaining ground at a rapid pace. It even got to the point where some non-Christian government officials suggested that Christianity could become Japan's state religion. Such was the impact heading into the twentieth century that some said not to send any foreign missionaries into Japan. Why? Because the homegrown churches were gaining so much ground. Besides this, many also believed that if the local Christians continued the way they were going, wrote Verbeck in 1889, "you need not, after 1890; send any more missionaries to Japan." So, what was the date for the expected Christianization of the country? The writer continues, "Some put 1890 as the date, some 1895, but no one puts it any later than 1900!" Great revivals covered in this book also include China, India, the former Soviet Union, as well as the United States, when America felt the flame of true religious revival. The thing that surprised me most, though, when writing this book, was that the first flames of worldwide revival were the prayer circles that originated in Australia. Most, if not all, of the revivals detailed in this book, took their cue from these praying groups in Melbourne. For example, Pandita Ramabai, in 1905, sent her daughter from India to Australia. Why? To learn about the prayer circles. Before long, India experienced a revival similar to that of the Welsh Revival of 1904. There are very few books today, which go into such depth as The Twenty Revivals of the Twentieth Century does. So. if you want to learn about some unknown revival activity in the church, why not look at this book, it may change the way you think and pray about worldwide revival in the church..

Within the first twenty years of the 21st century, we have heard how a massive shift from the global north to the global south and from west to east has taken place, but a comprehensive view that enables the reader to understand exactly how that has happened remains hidden. Transpacific Evangelicalism in the Twentieth Century: Revival and Evangelism in America and Korea provides the reader with a means to view clearly how American evangelicals went overseas and turned the local into the global, or more clearly, acted as midwives in the birthing of world Christianity. * * * * Having known Dr. Purinton for almost ten years and having sat in his classes as he taught the faculty from OMS and KEHC partner schools from eight different countries during the Wesleyan Holiness Summer Study Program hosted at Seoul Theological University, I am excited to commend this book to your attention. Dr. Purinton captures well the varied strands of evangelicalism and skillfully weaves in very important items for both the general reader and those from OMS. Highlights are the introduction to evangelicalism, a chronological journey through 120 years, the fourfold gospel, and the history of OMS. His approach is well organized and illuminating along with ample references to give the reader a flowing perspective of the development of essential elements of evangelicalism. The concluding chapter is both a winsome call and heartfelt plea for a new generation of apostle-theologians who understand and will apply the fourfold gospel, the Wesleyan Quadrilateral, and Luther’s Word and Spirit.

Why another book about biblical interpretation (hermeneutics)? First, this is not just another book about hermeneutics. It deals specifically with hermeneutics as practiced by Pentecostals; rather, more accurately, as hermeneutics should be practiced by Pentecostals. The book presents a distinct Pentecostal hermeneutic that moves away from exclusive use of historical-grammatical methodology. The hermeneutic presented here employs an eclectic methodology and a quadratic strategy. Scripture, Spirit, trained leader, and community, in the proposed hermeneutic, are shown to work together to produce an interpretation that engages both creative imagination and authorial intent. The text offers pastors, professors, and laity alike a method and approach that will allow them to interpret Scripture from a clearly Pentecostal perspective. An important addition to the book is an outline for an undergraduate course instructing students in this distinct Pentecostal hermeneutic..

The twentieth century has witnessed periodic revivals comparable to the awakenings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. And yet, many of the places and players of these reawakenings have been overlooked or neglected by the chroniclers of North American church history. "A Survey of 20th-Century Revival Movements in North America" attempts to set the record straight. It offers a concise and useful survey of the major currents of revival that have swept over this continent since the turn of the century. As the final decade of this century approaches it is appropriate that historian Richard Riss chart the course of twentieth-century revival on this continent and record the people, places, and events that have shaped the modern American church. Names like William J. Seymour or Maria B. Woodworth-Etter; places like Azusa Street or North Battleford, Saskatchewan; and events like the forest Home Briefing Conference or the Latter Rain Revival might not be as familiar as Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, or the Jesus movement, but each has played a significant role in keeping the streams of revival flowing. The impact of these often lesser-known figures and events is tremendous. For example, William J. Seymour was a key figure in early Pentecostalism, which has become one of the most rapidly growing segments of modern Christianity. Also, college awakenings at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, North Park College, and Wheaton College in late 1949 and early 1950 received nationwide press coverage and sparked college revivals throughout the country. A decade later, in 1960, Dennis Bennett's experience of the Holy Spirit in Van Nuys, California, wouldmark the beginning of a tremendous outpouring of the Spirit, and for many, came to represent the start of the charismatic renewal movement..

The twentieth-century revival of early music unfolded in two successive movements rooted respectively in nineteenth-century antiquarianism and in rediscovery of the value of original instruments. The present volume is a collection of insights reflecting the principal concerns of the second of those revivals, focusing on early keyboards, and beginning in the 1950s. The volume and its authors acknowledge Canadian harpsichordist Kenneth Gilbert (b. 1931) as one of this revival’s leaders. The content reflects international research on early keyboard music, sources, instruments, theory, editing, and discography. Considerations that echo throughout the book are the problematics of source attributions, progressive institutionalization of early music, historical instruments as agents of artistic change and education, antecedents and networks of the revival seen as a social phenomenon, the impact of historical performance and the quest for understanding style and genre. The chapters cover historical performance practice, source studies, edition, theory and form, and instrument curating and building. Among their authors are prominent figures in performance, music history, editing, instrument building and restoration, and theory, some of whom engaged with the early keyboard revival as it was happening..

In Team Trump and the Evangelical White House, the author paints perhaps a different picture of Donald J. Trump than you will find in the mainstream media. With so many Trump-Thumping articles, opinion pieces, and news stories doing the rounds today, it is refreshing, therefore, to get a glimpse into a different side of the Trump White House. Surprisingly, the author shows a faith-friendly president, whose relationship with evangelicals goes back nearly two decades. As the author proposes throughout--Trump's Team has energized evangelical Christians--in a way, not seen for a long time. Some even hark back in their comparisons of the current White House to the Reagan-era. This was when the well-known Moral Majority backed a former-Hollywood actor launching Ronald Reagan into the fortieth presidency. The book begins by exploring why picking V P Pence made sense in bringing evangelicals on board with the Trump agenda. You'll also see how the White House welcome mat is once again out for evangelicals as the front door is always open to people of faith. Prayer Force One will give you a glimpse; perhaps of a side of Donald Trump, you may not have seen as he prays with faith leaders. These fifteen chapters will look at how the White House was won, and may yet be won again with evangelical support in 2020..

Revivals - movements that revitalize, resuscitate, or re-indigenize traditions perceived as threatened or moribund into new temporal, spatial, or cultural contexts - have been well-documented in Western Europe and Euro-North America. Less documented are the revival processes that have been occurring and recurring elsewhere in the world. And particularly under-analyzed are the aftermaths of revivals: the new infrastructures, musical styles, performance practices, subcultural communities, and value systems that have grown out of revival movements. The Oxford Handbook of Music Revival helps us achieve a deeper understanding of the role and development of traditional, folk, roots, world, classical, and early music in modern-day postindustrial, postcolonial, and postwar contexts. The book's thirty chapters present innovative theoretical perspectives illustrated through new ethnographic case studies on diverse music cultures around the world. Together these essays reveal the potency of acts of revival, resurgence, restoration, and renewal in shaping musical landscapes and transforming social experience. The contributors present research from Euro-America, Native America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Europe, the former Soviet bloc, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. They enrich the field by applying approaches and insights from across the disciplines of ethnomusicology, ethnochoreology, historical musicology, folklore studies, anthropology, ethnology, sociology, and cultural studies. The book makes a powerful argument for the untapped potential of revival as a productive analytical tool in contemporary, global contexts-one that is crucial for understanding manifestations of musical heritage in postmodern, cosmopolitan societies. With its detailed treatment of authenticity, recontextualization, transmission, institutionalization, globalization, and other key concerns, the collection makes a significant impact far beyond the field of revival studies and is crucial for understanding contemporary manifestations of folk, traditional, and heritage music in today's postmodern cosmopolitan societies..

Global Christianity has been experiencing an unprecedented historical transition from the West to the non-Western world. The leadership of global Christianity has taken on a new face since the twentieth century.

The phenomenal church growth has risen from the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement. Pentecostalism has become the dominant force in global Christianity today. The Rise of the Global South examines the significance this shift has had on global Christianity by going through the history of Christianity in the West and the causes of the shift..

How, if possible, to re-populate declining rural and regional areas? Examining this crucial and complex issue in relation to Australia, this book explores how a particular organization, 'Country Week', has emerged and developed as one means of stimulating the repopulation of declining or stagnating areas. While this is a problem shared by many other developed countries in Europe and North America, Australia's 'Country Week' programme puts forward an innovative range of place-marketing strategies that challenge rural decline and urban migration and can offer new approaches which could be adopted more widely..
