Anglicans and Pentecostals in Dialogue

This is the first comprehensive book on Anglican and Pentecostal ecumenical relations.

Anglicans and Pentecostals in Dialogue introduces both movements with a particular focus on their approaches to ecumenism, before exploring sacraments, ministry, ecclesiology, pneumatology, and mission with respect to both traditions. As well as providing more theological and historical discussion, the work also offers personal accounts of local, national, and international ecumenical engagement by both Anglicans and Pentecostals.

Written predominantly, though not exclusively, from a British perspective, it is the first major published dialogue between these two global Christian traditions, and will be of value to all interested in Anglicanism, Pentecostalism, and ecumenism.

Bishop Ric Thorpe has contributed the chapter Anglicans, Church Growth and Church Planting, within a section exploring Mission and Church Growth across both Anglican and Pentecostal movements.
