“The Nigerian Pentecostal landscape is one of the most vibrant in Africa, with churches increasingly assuming
more prominent roles as they seek to address the social and moral ills of contemporary society. This book examines the contributions of Nigerian Pentecostal churches to development, studying their practices broadly in relation to the intersecting spheres of politics, economics, health, education, human rights, and peacebuilding. The book will be of considerable interest to scholars and students with an interest in the intersection between religion and development, and to practitioners and policy makers working in the region.”
