Theological Book Network and Nagel Institute Event

Africa RisingYou have all heard or seen the statistics: Christianity in Africa is growing FAST! But What does that growth look like on the ground? How are these Christians expressing their new identity in Christ? What are their challenges and joys? James Ault spent twenty years trying to answer these questions and his work in both Ghana and Zimbabwe led to the production of an incredible documentary that captures aspects of Christianity in Africa in ways that no book is able to. The Theological Book Network and the Nagel Institute are partnering to share parts of this documentary on Monday February 29, 2016 at the Bytwerk Theater on Calvin College’s campus starting at 7:00PM. Please join Joel Carpenter and Mwenda Ntarangwi as they explore some pertinent issues raised in this incredible work. Joel will provide the context and introduction and Mwenda will offer some commentary and share some of his own stories of growing up in a heavily Christian nation with similar experiences and expressions of the faith that James Ault captures in this documentary. Join us, won't you?

When: Monday, February 29, 2016, 7:00pm
Where: Bytwerk Theater on campus of Calvin College
