Review:

Rich and detailed [and] an important comment on the current shape of Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity in Africa. [...] A thoroughly researched, convincingly argued and beautifully written book. It is a hugely important contribution. AFRICA

[A] path breaking major work tracing the tangled roots of a significant religious movement in Zimbabwe and beyond and setting it in the worldwide web of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity. Richly documented, it explores the relation between social history with fascinating participatory material makes the book the best and most illuminating account ever written of an African initiated church... a very important book and a remarkable work of scholarship. - Terence Ranger, Professor Emeritus, University of Oxford
Few books on African Christianity match its scope and intellectual rigour. Among the histories of African 'independent' churches it is without a rival. It will define the field of Pentecostal studies for years to come. - Harri Englund, University of Cambridge
A major, comprehensive and original study. [...] This book makes a significant contribution to the history of Christianity in Zimbabwe. [...] A tour de force in African Christian studies and will undoubtedly stand as a benchmark for the future. AFRICAN AFFAIRS
A timely contribution....This book is an excellent work and will be of special interest for scholars in the fields of religious studies, history and anthropology as well as African studies. AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW
A very useful study and those seeking to understand why Pentecostalism has become such a massive movement in Africa will find it a very useful read. PNEUMA: THE JOURNAL FOR THE SOCIETY OF PENTECOSTAL STUDIES
