Abstract

Essek William Kenyon (1867-1948) is a figure not readily identified by students of American religious history, and yet his influence on the twentieth-century religious history (particularly its Pentecostal and Charismatic expressions) is profound....Although Kenyon himself was never a Pentecostal, his influence on this segment of Christendom is extensive. Indeed, the earliest and most profound split among Pentecostals came as the result of William Durham's sermons on "the Finished Work of Christ"teachings that he apparently had received from Kenyon....Kenyon's writings have been widely plagiarized, thus spreading his teachings, if not his name, to millions worldwide. This last trend is especially evident in the independent Charismatic movement (led by Kenneth E. Hagin), whose entire doctrinal framework has been lifted from Kenyon without acknowledgement. Through its virtual domination of the electronic church and the thousands of graduates of its Bible training schools, the independent Charismatic movement has helped to spread Kenyon's influence on an ever-widening scale.
