Healing and transformation in global Pentecostal/Charismatic Christianity

What is it about?

Most of the articles in this special issue were presented at the IAMS General Conference in Seoul, South Korea, in August 2016.

Why is it important?

Around the world, Christian individuals and churches preach and practice healing and transformation, and regard them as a natural part of their religious life. Especially in what is often referred to as Pentecostal or Charismatic Christianity, they are seen as defining phenomena and therefore widely discussed in research. The aim of this special issue is to incorporate this wider discussion into missiological circles, the Mission Studies journal and the IAMS community.
