Une communauté alternative au sud du Burundi, 1935-1960 , Studia Missionalia Svecana XCV Uppsala, Th e Swedish Institute of Missionary Research, 2004. 237 p., with a summary in English on pp. 301-306. ISBN 91- 85424-86, price unknown. In the course of the last century the Pentecostal Churches, which trace their origins to Los Angeles (USA) in 1906, have formed the fastest growing Christian movement worldwide. Pentecostals arrived in Africa, oft en aft er mainstream Catholics and Protestant missions had already founded well established churches, but in many countries they outnumbered several of these churches by the end of the 20th century. Until recently little historical and missiological research has looked at the growth of the Pentecostal Churches. Th is book on the Pentecostal Church in Burundi, presented as doctoral dissertation at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), fills a gap in this neglected area of research. In Burundi the Pentecostal mission started activi- ties in 1935, but accounted for one tenth of the population by the end of the century, thus outnumbering the Baptists and Anglicans who had been there much longer.
