Power, Poverty and Prayer: The Challenges of Poverty and Pluralism in African Christianity, 1960-1996 inquires into the role Christianity plays in African political and socio-economic life. Colonialism is over, but the drums of liberation are still throbbing. Christianity paved the way for colonialism, but also produced the champions of independence. What role, if any, is Christianity playing toward the Second Liberation of the continent? The author writes on a topic that is at the heart of the Second Liberation of Africa, analyzing the dialectics of power, poverty and prayer in post independence Africa in general.
