How many Christians are there in Africa today? After centuries of missionary work, after countless sacrifices, the staffing of mission stations and the spending of millions - just how strong is the church in Africa? How well has the church withstood the storms that have raged over Africa? How many of the steeples that were built with so much care have proved strong enough to withstand the winds of change - in political, social, economic, cultural and religious fields? Is Africa still ""dark Africa"" or has that darkness been banished by the light of Jesus Christ?
