Annual Review of the Sociology of Religion

Volume 8: Pentecostals and the Body

Series:

The intersection of religion, ritual, emotion, globalization, migration, sexuality, gender, race, and class, is especially insightful for researching Pentecostal notions of the body. Pentecostalism is well known for overt bodily expressions that includes kinesthetic worship with emotive music and sustained acts of prayer. Among Pentecostals there is considerable debate about bodies, the role of the Holy Spirit, possession of evil spirits, deliverance, exorcism, revival, and healing of bodies and emotions. Pentecostalism is identified as a religion on the move and so bodies are transformed in the context of globalization. Pentecostalism is also associated with notions of sexuality, gender, race and class where bodies are often liberated and limited. This volume evaluates these themes associated with contemporary research on the body.

Winds from the North

Canadian Contributions to the Pentecostal Movement

Series:

Much of the scholarly focus on early twentieth-century Pentecostalism is dominated by the origins debates of the United States. The polarization between those who argue for Parham’s theological contribution or Seymour’s African American experiential contribution is well known. Beyond these debates scholars typically focus on the role of Americans in the development of Pentecostalism. However, the Hebden mission in Toronto, Canadian women, and the Latter Rain revival illustrate the transnational and innovative qualities of the movement. This book contextualizes the global story of Pentecostalism with some important and often neglected contributions by Pentecostals in Canada and their influence on Pentecostalism in the United States and the world.

Charismatics who practice soaking prayer claim that the experience of God’s love leads to loving others. In this article we offer a detailed description of soaking prayer as taught and practiced at Catch the Fire. Findings are based on three years of research that included participant observation, face-to-face interviews, and a survey of participants. Theoretically we draw upon theories of ritual and embodiment to explain how participants engage in acts of benevolence.
