It seeks to discern the spirituality of the charismatic religious movement in Nigeria in relation to issues of politics, national sovereignty, economic development, culture, racial identity, gender, social ethics, and epistemology. Nimi Wariboko describes the faiths core beliefs and practices, revealing a spell of the invisible that defines not only the character of the movement but also believers ways of seeing, being, and doing. Written by an insider to the tradition, Nigerian Pentecostalism will also engage outsiders with an interest in critical social theory, political theory, and philosophy. Nimi Wariboko is the Katherine B. Stuart Professor of Christian Ethics at Andover Newton Theological School, Newton, Massachusetts. He is the author of The Pentecostal Principle: Ethical Methodology in New Spirit (2011) and The Depth and Destiny of Work: An African Theological Interpretation (2008).
