Where is it?
Iceland is located at 65 degrees North and 18 degrees West. I.e. in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. Although you might think it is below 0C most of the year it is not so thanks to the Gulf Stream that carries warm sea up to the coasts of Iceland. The average July temperature is 10.9 to 11.2C and usually does not go below -15C in the winter in coastal areas. Although it rains a bit the air is not humid so you wont find 10C cold in Iceland. The weather is, however, very unpredictable and visitors should be prepared for the unexpected. From mid-May to mid-August there is almost continuous daylight. Top
What is it?
Iceland is the second-largest island in Europe. Iceland is 103,000km2 (39,000 square miles) in area and is crossed by the Arctic Circle at its northernmost point, the island of Grimsey. The landscape is mountainous in character, typified by rugged and uninhabited interior highlands with sharp and deep fjords on the north and east coasts, and plains and black sands on its south shore. Top
11% of Iceland's surface is covered by glaciers, dominated by Vatnajokull, which is the largest glacial cap in Europe. Average height above sea level is around 500 m and the highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, reaches 2,119m. Born from the sea by volcanic forces around 18-20 million years ago, Iceland is the youngest country in the world. Volcanic forces are still very active, with an eruption in progress somewhere in the country for one out of every five years during the historical period.

Voigt Travel Iceland's first inhabitants were Irish monks, who regarded the island as a sort of hermitage until the early 9th century. They were followed by Iceland's first permanent settlers who came from Norway. This was the Age of Settlement, traditionally defined as the period between 870 and 930, when political strife on the Scandinavian mainland caused many to flee. After escaping political strife in Scandinavia, Iceland's settlers were in no mood for a monarchy and opted instead for a parliamentary system of government. A district assembly and Althing (National Assembly) were founded, and a code of law prepared. Iceland became a Christian country in 999, which engendered some semblance of national unity at a time when squabbles were arising among its leaders and allegiances were being questioned. The country flourished during the next century, and established a thriving agrarian economy with little unrest. Iceland then became a launching pad for explorations of the North Atlantic: Eric the Red, who grew up in Iceland as the son of a Norwegian exile, colonised Greenland in 982; and Eric's Icelandic son, Leif Eriksson, is popularly held to be the first European to explore the coast of North America - which he named Vinland the Good. One of the more reliable Icelandic sagas, however, suggests that Leif Eriksson learned of Vinland from another Icelander, Bjarni Herjolfsson, who had sighted it some 14 years earlier. Whatever the truth is, these voyages of exploration became the source material of one of Europe's great literary flowerings.

History Our Belief Evangelism The History of the Pentecostal Movement
"Righteous by faith I am Lutherian, in sanctification I am a Methodist, as a soul hunter I am a Salvation soldier, in baptism I am a Baptist and in the gifts and baptism of the Spirit I am a Pentecostal!" - Tomas Ball Barratt The Pentecostal Movement came to Iceland from Scandinavia and the connection with Scandinavia has always been close. It is interesting though, that the evangelists that brought the Pentecostal message to Iceland, had been in the United States for some time before coming here. The beginning of The Pentecostal Movement can be traced to events that took place in the United States around the beginning of the last century. The characteristics of the movement are, as the name suggests, that its followers honor and seek the experience which the disciples of Jesus experienced on the first day of Pentecost. The first one to connect speaking in tongues with the baptism of the Holy Spirit was Charles Fox Parham

The History of Iceland
Gunnar Karlsson The only comprehensive history of Iceland available in English. Iceland is unique among European societies in having been founded as late as the Viking Age and in having a copious written and archaeological sources about its origin. Gunnar Karlsson, that country's premier historian, chronicles the age of the Sagas, consulting them to describe an era without a monarch or central authority. Equating this prosperous time with the golden age of antiquity in world history, Karlsson then marks a correspondence between the Dark Ages of Europe and Iceland's "dreary period," which started with the loss of political independence in the late thirteenth century and culminated with an epoch of poverty and humility, especially during the early Modern Age. Iceland's renaissance came about with the successful struggle for independence in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and with the industrial and technical modernization of the first half of the twentieth century. Karlsson describes the rise of nationalism as Iceland's mostly poor peasants set about breaking with Denmark, and he shows how Iceland in the twentieth century slowly caught up economically with its European neighbors. "It is not easy to tell a thousand years of history in just over 400 pages that also include an index and an extensive bibliography. Gunnar Karlsson however manages quite well, telling us the story of the more than thousand years since Iceland was colonised by Vikings in a reasonably light informative style. "
