afe bookAbout The African Christian Diaspora

The last three decades have witnessed a rapid proliferation of African
Christian communities, particularly in Europe and North American
diaspora, thus resulting in the remapping of old religious landscapes.
This migratory trend and development bring to the fore the crucial
role, functions and import of religious symbolic systems in new
geo-cultural contexts. The trans-national linkages between African-led
churches in the countries of origin (Africa) and the "host" societies
are assuming increasing importance for African immigrants. The links
and networks that are established and maintained between these
contexts are of immense religious, cultural, economic, political and
social importance. This suggests how African Christianities can be
understood within processes of religious transnationalism and African

Church History Association of India (CHAI)

The Church History Association of India (CHAI) is an ecumenical body of those interested in the history of Christianity in India.

A Short History of Global Evangelicalism

Mark Hutchinson
John Wolffe

short history

This book offers an authoritative overview of the history of evangelicalism as a global movement, from its origins in Europe and North America in the first half of the eighteenth century to its present-day dynamic growth in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania. Starting with a definition of the movement within the context of the history of Protestantism, it follows the history of evangelicalism from its early North Atlantic revivals to the great expansion in the Victorian era, through to its fracturing and reorientation in response to the stresses of modernity and total war in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It describes the movement's indigenization and expansion toward becoming a multicentered and diverse movement at home in the non-Western world that nevertheless retains continuity with its historic roots. The book concludes with an analysis of contemporary worldwide evangelicalism's current trajectory and the movement's adaptability to changing historical and geographical circumstances.

Contemporary Pentecostal Christianity: Interpretations from an African ContextKwabena

by J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu

Pentecostalism is the fastest growing stream of Christianity in the world. In Africa, Pentecostalism has virtually become the representative face of Christianity with even historic mission denominations 'pentecostalising' their otherwise formal liturgical structures to survive. This work interprets key theological and missiological themes in African Pentecostalism by using material from the live experiences of the movement itself.

J. Kwabena Asamoah-Guadu is the Baëta-Grau Professor of African Christianity and Pentecostal Theology at Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon Ghana.
