♥ Book Title : 20 Pentecostal Pioneers in Nigeria
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ever so often a book comes along that I feel should have been written years ago, and this book is one of them. As a Christian who found faith in Nigeria in the 80s, I was intrigued by stories about 'God Generals", those men and women that led 20th century revivals across the world (most of them in the West). Now I have in my hands, a book that shares some of the stories of some of my fellow countrymen who shaped the faith landscape in Nigeria. I am really impressed with the diversity of the leaders identified and the depth of the research undertaken. This book, in my view, should be a must read for anyone interested in origins of Pentecostalism in Nigeria. Keno Ogbo, Co-editor, The Black Church in the 21st Century "The Lord joined us to the ministry of Benson Idahosa for 20 years and we saw firsthand the reality and power of the gospel in Africa that has touched the world. The Lord's sovereign work in the continent is going to impact the globe for generations to come. Thank God for the African church of Jesus Christ. Millions of strong and faithful believers are coming forth at this critical time as God builds His church." Dr Kent & Ruth Hodge, President of Christian Faith Institute, Jos, Nigeria. Christianity has been recognised to be a growing religion in Sub Sahara Africa. The expression of Christianity that is expanding in Africa is Pentecostalism. One reason for this growth is the renewal factor which has engulfed the whole continent. Nigeria is one of the countries that has and is still experiencing revival that is contributing to local and global Christianity. What is the origin of Pentecostalism in Nigeria? What contributions did the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa make to the Pentecostal scene in Africa? Why is RCCG one of the fastest growing Churches in the World? This book considers the history of Pentecostalism in Nigeria by looking at the pioneering efforts of men and women who laid the foundation of the Movement."Article| Israel O.

♥ Book Title : Entreprises religieuses transnationales en Afrique de l'ouest
☯ Full Synopsis : "La plupart des études menées à ce jour sur les mouvements religieux en Afrique de l'Ouest ont un cadre d'étude monographique qui privilégie l'entrée par une région ou un pays, alors que les Églises, les associations islamiques, et même les confréries, développent un prosélytisme à l'échelle de la région, du continent, voire de la planète. L'objet spécifique de cet ouvrage porte sur l'analyse comparative des réseaux transnationaux tissés par de nouveaux acteurs religieux : docteurs, prédicateurs et entrepreneurs. Il fait d'abord place à la variété des formes que prennent les réseaux religieux : entreprises missionnaires supranationales, voire centralisées, associations nationales et réseaux transfrontaliers informels, ou encore diasporas religieuses, migrantes ou commerçantes. Dans tous ces cas de figure les conflits identitaires, culturels ou générationnels, que suscite la tension entre les ancrages locaux ou nationaux de ces traditions religieuses historiques et leurs prétentions transnationales, encouragent la promotion de jeunes lettrés, passeurs de frontières. Dans un second temps, les auteurs rappellent que, parallèlement à la présence d'entreprises transnationales, l'État Nation reste un cadre d'analyse pertinent de l'étude des réseaux religieux, essentiellement parce que les ressources matérielles, symboliques et sociales de la mondialisation religieuse sont largement réinvesties dans un contexte local ou national, et dans l'espace public autant que sur la scène politique. Quel que soit le caractère polycentré de certains réseaux religieux contemporains, la singularité du Nigeria en tant que nation missionnaire en Afrique méritait enfin d'être interrogée. La domination économique de ce pays sur les pays frontaliers, le dynamisme des réseaux migratoires nigérians et le rôle historique du Nigeria comme pôle de formation ecclésiale et universitaire en Afrique de l'Ouest ont favorisé la formation de véritables entreprises religieuses transnationales plus ou moins centralisées. Si Églises et confréries d'origine nigériane influencent de manière contrastée les paysages religieux nationaux, les entrepreneurs nigérians s'affirment volontiers comme une avant-garde missionnaire d'un nouvel ordre religieux mondial."Article| Laurent Fourchard| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Nigeria's Christian Revolution
☯ Full Synopsis : "Nigeria has become the area of one of the most remarkable religious movements of recent times, reflecting the shift in the global center of Christianity from the North to the South. This book tells the story of one sector of this movement from its roots in the Nigerian civil war to the turn of the new millennium. It describes a revival that occurred among the Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria, and the new Pentecostal churches it generated, and documents the changes that have occurred as the movement has responded to global flows and local demands. As such, it explores the nature of revivalist and Pentecostal experience, but does so against the backdrop of local socio-political and economic developments, such as decolonization and civil war, as well broader processes, such as modernization and globalization."Article| Richard Burgess| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Religion, History, and Politics in Nigeria
☯ Full Synopsis : "Religion, History, and Politics in Nigeria is concerned with the problematic nature of religion and politics in Nigerian history. The book provides a lively and straightforward treatment of the relationship among religion, politics, and history in Nigeria, and how it affects public life today. By adopting various cultural, historical, political, and sociological perspectives, the text's contributors provide an excellent introduction to the volatile mix of religion and politics in Nigerian history, as well as a range of strategic choices open to religious adherents. The complexity of the relationship among religion, history, and politics is organized around four themes: indigenous values and the influence of Islam and Christianity, colonialism and religious transformation, the religious landscape of the post-colonial period, and the rise of evangelism and fundamentalism. The volume provides an insightful guide to contemporary history, contemporary religion, and contemporary politics, enabling the reader to reach informed and balanced judgments about the role in religion in Nigerian history and politics. This opens the door for serious examination and debate, and will be excellent for use by the general reader and in political science, history, and religion courses."Article| Chima Jacob Korieh| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Freedom's Distant Shores
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume examines relations between U.S. Protestants and Africa since the end of colonial rule. It draws attention to shifting ecclesiastical and socio-political priorities, especially the decreased momentum of social justice advocacy and the growing missionary influence of churches emphasizing spiritual revival and personal prosperity. The book provides a thought-provoking assessment of U.S. Protestant involvements with Africa, and it proposes forms of engagement that build upon ecclesiastical dynamism within American and African contexts."Article| R. Drew Smith| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Pentecostalism and Development
☯ Full Synopsis : "Development was founded on the belief that religion was not important to development processes. The contributors call this assumption into question and explore the practical impacts of religion by looking at the developmental consequences of Pentecostal Christianity in Africa, and by contrasting Pentecostal and secular models of change."Article| D. Freeman| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Between Babel and Pentecost
☯ Full Synopsis : "Over the past two decades, Latin American and African countries have experienced a phenomenal growth of Pentecostal movements. This form of Christianity, only marginally present in these areas in the middle of the 20th century, is now embraced by more than a hundred million faithful across two continents and continues to grow at an astonishing rate. Despite the enormous differences which separte these lands and the individual societieis within them, one is struck by the similarity of Pentecostal manifestaitons in these diverse cultures. Contemporary Pentecostalism provides a striking example of the paradox of difference and uniformity, of flow and closure, that seems to be at the heart of processes of transnationalism and globalisation."Article| André Corten| Statement ..."
