Africa Pentecostalized? Understanding the African appropriation of Pentecostalism in light of African perspectives
MetadataVis full innførsel
I want to prepare an understanding of why Pentecostalism seems to be so attractive in Africa. I will outline Ogbu Kalu's understanding of a resonance between African traditional culture and Pentecostalism, and then add perspectives from other African scholars. And the research problem follows: How can we understand the appropriation of Pentecostalism in Africa in light of Ogbu Kalu? Research questions will be: In what way do Pentecostalism and African traditional culture resonate? Are there confrontations between African traditional culture and Pentecostalism?
