Soviet Charismatics

The Pentecostals in the USSR


William C. Fletcher

The Charismatic Movement is one of the 20th Century's most dynamic, fastest growing Christian movements. An early form of this movement, Pentecostalism, began in Topeka, Kansas, in 1901. A decade later it arrived in Russia, and its spread is an ideal case study of how an American Christian movement can take root in a foreign, indeed hostile culture. This book traces the history of the movement, examines its doctrine, describes its worship and life style, and traces its heroic response to some of the sternest challenges of our times.
