440 Seiten, € 24,80

The author first discusses what he has identified as “open” and “non-open” confrontational attitudes of some Pentecostals towards Chieftaincy and traditional festivals. He further identifies and discusses in detail the engagement between some Pentecostals and members of the Fellowship of Christian Chiefs and Queens (FCCQ) in Ghana as a shift in Pentecostal Mission strategy.
Drawing from this engagement, the author identifies ‘Inculturation’ (cultural evangelism) as a means of bridging the gap between Christianity and Chieftaincy / traditional festivals in Ghana.
