"A wonderful anthology that reveals how widespread the exuberant spirituality that characterizes todays Pentecostal/Charismatic movement has been throughout the history of Christianity.Not simply a pre-history of Pentecostalism, it examines many different forms of spiritual experience within the global Christian movement. Anyone interested in the affectivity of Christianity past and present should read this book." -- Douglas Jacobsen,author of The World's Christians: Who They Are, Where They Are, and How They Got There
"Stanley Burgess, the great Encyclopedist of Pentecostalism, has given us yet another priceless resource in Christian Peoples of the Spirit: A Documentary Reader. I highly recommend this book." -- Vinson Synan, author of The Holiness-Pentecostal Tradition: Charismatic Movements in the Twentieth Century
"A remarkable collection of texts from the first century to the present, uncovering the roots and widening the horizons of modern Pentecostalism. From this work emerges a varied yet noble legacy of repeated encounters with the power and the gifts of a living God. A superb new resource for the study of contemporary Pentecostal and charismatic movements" -- J. Ramsey Michaels, author of Interpreting the Book of Revelation
