Abstract

[This chapter traces the historical and social context of the study, including the situation of the neglected continent of Africa. The decolonisation that took place from the mid-1950s onwards, urbanisation, the ravaging poverty and natural disasters, civil wars, and political and economic instability create a climate for the growth of movements like Pentecostalism. It discusses the growth of Pentecostalism throughout the continent, the literature dealing with African Pentecostalism giving reasons for its growth, and the influences of globalisation on both African societies and its religious world. The particular context of South Africa is discussed, including its social conditions, the religious, cultural and political background, and the significance of Pentecostalism in this country. This forms the backdrop for what follows.]
