Since 1960, particularly in the non-western world, there has been a remarkable increase in the number and size of independent pentecostal-like churches and organisations. Using a case-studies methodology, this thesis analyses the missiology of this 'neopentecostal movement'. Part One of the thesis introduces and sets the historical stage for the movement; Part Two analyses the movement's missiology. This analysis includes its theology of mission, strategies of mission, ecumenism, and sociological factors. The thesis concludes with a three part discussion of some reasons for the movement's popularity and growth, the movement's balance of Christian responsibility and privilege, and finally, some issues that the movement and the larger Church raise for one another.
