Author and historian Vinson Synan always produces interesting and informative materials for understanding the modern-day church. He takes a more personal approach in this book, adding observations and reactions to these events, making the material come alive.

Anyone who has been involved in the Pentecostal-charismatic movement in the last century will feel as if they must have crossed paths with Synan at some point. Faithful to cover the wide spectrum and diversity of this century, he covers events leading up to Azusa Street and the birth of modern-day Pentecostalism; the Latter Rain and Healing Revivals; charismatic mainline denominations, both Protestant and Catholic; the controversies surrounding the prosperity gospel; racial reconciliation; and the more recent revivals of the 1990s and the new millennium.

Synan summarizes brilliantly so the reader understands where the church has been and sets the stage for understanding its future.
