|Title:||An Emerging Pentecostal Ecumenism?|
|Description:||The worldwide growth of the Pentecostal movement, especially its dissemination in Africa, Asia and Latin America, is generally known but differently interpreted.|
In unsympathetic circles in the Western world, particularly within the Catholic Church, this phenomenon is seen in negative terms as the proliferation of sects, generally with no distinctions being made between undoubtedly Christian groups and clearly heterodox bodies, that believe in authoritative revelation subsequent to Jesus Christ and the New Testament.
While church leaders are worried about the loss of members to these newcomers, theologians in the West have largely ignored the whole phenomenon.
