African Pentecostal Mission Maturing is a definitive and fresh account of how Pentecostalism has grown from the fringes of various societies to the center stage of world Christianity, becoming the representative face of the faith in most of Africa. In this volume, seasoned academics—missiologists, theological educators, and church historians—from Asia, North America, Europe, and Africa chart the trajectories of the Pentecostalizing drive in Christian missions that has impacted societies, institutions, and peoples. Pentecostalism is analyzed under specific themes, such as: mission and theology, pastoral ministry and social responsibility, Christian education, and ecumenism. It highlights the maturation of Pentecostalism in Africa and demonstrates that the features of its infancy have transformed. Although written by experienced scholars, the content is presented accessibly so that pastors and laity can benefit.
