African Pentecostalism

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the impact of the religion of immigrants on the northern religious landscape. It then discusses the character of the African immigrant community and immigrant Christianity. It is argued that African Christianity, spurred by the charismatic and Pentecostal movements, has made its presence felt around the globe with an identifiable missionary character. African Pentecostalism is reshaping the face of global Christianity and fulfilling the dreams of the Ethiopian movement.
