It was born a scant ninety-five years ago in a rundown warehouse on Azusa Street in Los Angeles. For days the religious-revival service there went on and on-and within a week the Los Angeles Times was reporting on a "weird babble" coming from the building. Believers were "speaking in tongues," the way they did at the first Pentecost recorded in the Bible?and a pentecostal movement was created that would, by the start of the twenty-first century, attract over 400 million followers worldwide. Harvey Cox has traveled the globe to visit and worship with pentecostal congregations on four continents, and he has written a dynamic, provocative history of this explosion of spirituality?a movement that represents no less than a tidal change in what religion is and what it means to people.

As a life long Pentecostal, and a pastor of over 20 years, I deeply enjoyed Cox’s perspective on “Pentecostalism from a Non-Pentecostal.”

Fire From Heaven is a well written, objective look at the Pentecostal movement both in America and abroad. Harvey Cox does a great job explaining the history of this movement in a way that shows both its bright points as well as its spots and blemishes. I would definitely recommend this book for any minister, church historian or lay person looking for an unbiased look at various movements that have taken place in the Christian faith.

I found this book to be very informational for my Christian Studies Classes. I was able to follow the Authors information as it related to classroom discussion questions, and was able to discuss questions with Knowledge, because of the assignment readings.

Smart and empathetic

I feel this “outsider” view gives both Pentecostals good reflection and analysis. I recommend it. It gives historical and global depth
