Studies in the Holiness and Pentecostal Movements

About the Series

Penn State University Press is pleased to announce Studies in the Holiness and Pentecostal Movements, a new book series edited by David Bundy, Geordan Hammond, and David Sang-Ehil Han. The Holiness and Pentecostal movements have influenced most Christian churches since the 1830s. Born on the edges of Methodist revivalism, the Holiness movement incorporated elements from other Christian traditions; simultaneously, its doctrines and practices were adapted by those other traditions. A similar phenomenon can be observed in the dynamic relationship between the Pentecostal movement and Protestant and Catholic churches during the Charismatic Renewal of the twentieth century. These competing traditions and spiritualities are often studied in relative isolation from each other, but they share a rich history and theology and have influenced each other over the years.

Studies in the Holiness and Pentecostal Movements seeks to enhance our understanding of both traditions by examining the two movements, and their complex relationship, through a multidisciplinary lens. Bringing these traditions into critical comparison and dialogue will open up extensive possibilities for scholarly research. The series welcomes original work from a variety of scholarly disciplines and geographical perspectives.

Initial inquiries should take the form of a three- to five-page proposal outlining the intent of the project, its scope, its relation to other work on the topic, and the audience(s) you have in mind. Please include a current CV and one or two sample chapters, if available.
