About this title


This book has given the evaluation of a great hero, motivator and a unique icon to be remembered in the history of the world and especially, Nigeria. Joseph Ayo Babalola has been identified as a prophetic figure in Nigeria. The book therefore analyzes the historical antecedents, growth and expansion of indigenous Pentecostalism in Nigeria; it also enumerates the prophetic and evangelistic activities of Joseph Ayo Babalola on faith healing. These resultant activities stimulated growth and changes till the early 1960s. The book reveals that Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola was a major contributor to the growth of the Christ Apostolic Church as well as nation building. It also reveals how indigenous Pentecostal leaders emphasized divine healing and prophetic gifts such as visions, dreams, and discernment as remedies to personal problems confronting Nigerians at that time. The book concludes that the indigenous Pentecostal churches in Nigeria would continue to be functional and relevant to other churches and contemporary society.
