Abstract:This three-volume publication contains the collected essays of Ogbu Uke Kalu (1942-2009), Nigerian scholar of religious studies. Part I, African Pentecostalism, contains his essays on the Pentecostal experience in Africa. Contrary to Western perspectives on African Pentecostalism, Kalu provides an alternative transnational discourse that is sensitive to local identities, appropriations and contestations of global processes. The essays in Part II, Christian missions in Africa, highlights how the shifting centre of gravity in Christianity is being played out in Africa. Part III, Religions in Africa, contains essays on the intersection of religion and social issues in Africa. The three issues also contain biographies, testimonies and tributes to Ogbu Kalu.
