es 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."If theology is a reasoned reflection on the questions, issues, and practices of a faith tradition, then this book is profoundly illustrative of the nature, logic, and progress of African Pentecostal mission theology. The scholarship and ministry of Apostle Opoku Onyinah provides an excellent example of how African Pentecostalism is correlating the resources of the Christian faith to the challenges of different cultural contexts. A timely and indispensable book on Pentecostalism and missions."--Nimi Wariboko, Walter G. Muelder Professor of Social Ethics, Boston University"African Christianity that was perceived as having no 'apostle Paul' of its own has now found one in the person of Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, the prayerful Pentecostal Bible teacher, theologian, ecumenist, and visionary leader whose profound understanding of the African culture and worldview has enabled him to effectively use the Christian gospel to engage the African traditional religion. His significant contributions toward the maturing African Pentecostal mission are noteworthy."--Alfred Koduah, Former General Secretary, The Church of PentecostLord Elorm Donkor is Principal of the Birmingham Christian College, UK, the Director of Training of the Church of Pentecost-UK, and an ordained minister of the Church of Pentecost in charge of the Birmingham District.Clifton R.
