In this lively history of the rise of pentecostalism in the United States, Grant Wacker gives an in-depth account of the religious practices of pentecostal churches. He also provides an engaging picture of the way these beliefs played out in daily life in both positive and negative ways as people struggled to establish 'heaven below'.
