The chapter considers the deficiencies of many current studies of African Christianity, because they ignore the profound diversity between those Christians who operate with an enchanted religious imagination and those who do not. This book will outline the differences between the two by comparing examples of the two types, taking Pentecostalism (in a broad sense) as an example of enchanted Christianity and Roman Catholicism as an example of non-enchanted Christianity. The chapter also outlines the method used in the book.
