The book investigates and presents the nature of Christology among ordinary Pentecostals in India. Pentecostalism is growing rapidly among Tribal-groups, Dalits, lower castes and ordinary people. However, the movement has not articulated its theological
identity in order to consolidate and further its development.
This research work has meticulously analysed and systematised the Christology of Indian Pentecostals using qualitative research methods. Ordinary Indian Pentecostals understand Jesus
as the healer, exorcist, provider and protector in the context of poor healthcare, a spirit worldview, extreme poverty, caste-system and religious Persecution. Their Christian experience enables them to acknowledge Jesus as the Saviour, Lord and supreme
God. These Christological themes are consonant with the larger Pentecostal tradition, theology and indeed the New Testament testimony. This work critically engages with scholarship in Pentecostalism and the broader Christian tradition to propose a
modification of these Christological categories.
