n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Writing religious history: The historiography of Ethiopian Pentecostalism, J. Haustein : book review

Volume 40, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



This book appears at a time when there is an increasing interest being shown in the growth and development of the Pentecostal movement in Africa. It focuses on the Ethiopian context where Pentecostalism and charismatic Christianity have become prominent features of religious history in an area where traditional Ethiopian orthodoxy has remained aloof from the upsurge of both Islam and alternative forms of Christianity for many centuries. Apart from two early histories, this is the first recent substantial history of Ethiopian Pentecostalism written from a contemporary historical perspective.
