A Pilgrim’s Progress through the Pentecostal Movement

Using a three-stage model of spiritual growth ascribed to the early church fathers (illumination, purgation, unity and love), sociologist Margaret M. Poloma examines the Toronto Blessing stream of Pentecostalism from the perspective of a trained observer who has also experienced the spiritual renewal of the Blessing. Drawing on the surveys she conducted at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship in 1995 and 1997, she shows how each stage of spiritual growth is reflected in the lives of participants, with variations in outcome based on the spiritual stage and life circumstances of participants at the time they received the Blessing. The article is available here.
