The Anthropology of Global Pentecostalism and Evangelicalism

(p.243) Afterword
The Anthropology of Global Pentecostalism and Evangelicalism

Joel Robbins

NYU Press

This concluding chapter reflects on the historical trajectory of the anthropology of Christianity and how this book in particular is situated between its history. Once again the chapter delves into how this anthropology has transitioned from an upstart intellectual movement to an established subfield in its own right, at the same time marking a key category in the anthropology of Christianity—that of Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity (P/c), which lumps together those genealogically linked forms of the faith that emphasize the availability of gifts of the Holy Spirit to all believers. This chapter thus dwells on the previous chapters' analyses of both evangelical and P/c Christianity and in particular expounds on the new directions some of these studies have taken.

Keywords:   anthropology of Christianity, P/c Christianity, Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity, evangelical Christianity, P/e Christianity
