Pneuma 30 (2008) 147-191 © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2008 DOI: 10.1163/157007408X287821 www.brill.nl/pneu Book Reviews Douglas Jacobsen, ed., A Reader In Pentecostal Theology: Voices From The First Generation (Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, 2006). viii + 226 pp., $22.95, paper. Douglas Jacobsen’s Reader is a beneﬁcial follow up to his Thinking in the Spirit: Theologies of the Early Pentecostal Movement (Indiana University Press, 2003). The introduction brieﬂy summarizes the history and theological concerns of early Pentecostals. Jacobsen’s helpful and sensitive summary provides readers with insights into the diversity and yet connectedness of early Pentecostal theology. He challenges popular stereotypical under- standings of Pentecostalism and argues for the distinctiveness of and respect for this emerging tradition. The introduction alone is a valuable contribution, because the Reader will serve as an important text for those who oﬀer courses on Pentecostalism. After the introduction, Jacobsen presents a selection of authors from the ﬁrst generation of Pentecostals (1900-1925). Th ese are arranged in loose chronological order based upon the publication dates of their works. Each chapter is devoted to one person and her or his writings. Chapters open with a brief historical sketch of the person’s life, followed by a quick review
