Published by Palgrave Macmillan

Series Editors:

Wolfgang Vondey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Center for Renewal Studies at Regent University School of Divinity, Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Amos Yong, Professor of Theology & Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California,

The series, Christianity and Renewal-Interdisciplinary Studies, brings together established and newly emerging scholars to explore issues at the intersection of the pentecostal, charismatic and other renewal movements and related phenomena from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, from various global locations, and from a range of Christian ecumenical and religious traditions. The series editors are interested in monographs and edited volumes on various topics, including:

  • the transforming and renewing work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian traditions, cultures, and in creation;
  • the traditions, beliefs, practices, and scholarship of the renewal movements;
  • the religious life, including the spirituality, ethics, doctrine, history, liturgical practices, interpretation of sacred texts, and spirituality of the renewal movements;
  • social, economic, or political implications of renewal movements and perspectives in contemporary Christianity;
  • methodological and theoretical concerns in the analyses at the intersection of Christianity and renewal;
  • intra-Christian and inter-religious comparative studies of renewal and revitalization movements;
  • other topics connecting to the theme of Christianity and renewal.
