Pentecostalism and Development

Churches, NGOs and Social Change in Africa

  • Dena Freeman

Part of the Non-Governmental Public Action book series (NGPA)

About this book


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.
