My interest in the research stems from personal experience of a warring Angola during the 1980's. Growing up in Angola, as anIgreja Evangelica Congregacional in Angola (IECA) pastor's son, I knew fear, social exclusion, and religious alienation. Much of the persecution which the IECA faced during this period of history can be ascribed to the impact of Marxism-Leninism, the political ideology adopted by the MPLA (Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola) after independence in 1975.
