Pentecostal Podcast

Prof. Margaret Poloma joins Tony Gill at Research on Religion to discuss her new book, The Assemblies of God: Godly Love and the Revitalization of American Pentecostalism (co-authored with John Green), which represents an updated look at her critically-acclaimed 1989 work The Assemblies of God at the Crossroads. They begin by exploring the general category of Pentecostalism, looking at both the history and characteristics of this fast-growing faith movement, and comparing it to evangelical Christianity. They then turn our attention specifically to the Assemblies of God (AoG), which represents one of the largest “denominations” within the Pentecostal movement.
