The Rise of African Churches

Over at CT, Philip Jenkins has an article about James Ault’s new doco on African churches (esp. Zimbabwe and Ghana) called African Churches Rising.

There are plenty of books describing the rapid growth of African churches. Those who can’t travel to witness this growth firsthand, though, can find it difficult to grasp. But now we have a set of impressive films: James Ault’s new series, African Christianity Rising. It is a superb resource for anyone who wants a front-row seat to the explosion of this part of global Christianity.

Info about the DVD is available on the link in the quotation above. Do check it out, there are some great previews of the DVD to watch, esp. Andrew Wall talking about the similarities between African churches and the church of the second century.

    The beginning of the end for a Christianity constrained by the Enlightenment? African Christians are to blame for the persistence of literal witch hunts and violent homophobia. They reveal the true identity of the primitive theology of Christianity, superstition and out-group violence. They will only hasten the death of Christianity in the West.
