Abstract:

"It is difficult to define a religious movement - especially when it almost defies definition as the Holiness movement does. A Methodist religious renewal movement with more than 12 million adherents worldwide, the most familiar public manifestation of the Holiness movement has been its urban missions. The Salvation Army - noted for its service ministries among the poor and those suffering the dislocations that accompany war and disaster - is the most notable example." "In this second edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Holiness Movement, important new developments - such as the widely discussed "Holiness Manifesto"--Are thoroughly covered, and the content has also been expanded to include information on figures from Asia and Africa, which reflect the continued growth of the Holiness movement. With a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography and more than 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries, this reference contains information that cannot be found elsewhere."--Jacket.
