After centuries of Westerners going to Africa to teach, documentary filmmaker James Ault goes to learn.
I once presented Africa as a region of extreme poverty, but we now have to take account of economic development. We can only begin to outline the religious consequences.

The vast majority of Africa's christians belong to familiar, mainstream denominations. But scholars give more attention to the minority.
Pentecostal and "Pentecostal-like" churches are growing spectacularly in Africa. But discussing these churches without discussing their emphasis on success is like discussing computers without mentioning software.A true believer is successful; if not, something is very wrong. Consider the names of the churches: Victory Bible Church, Jesus Breakthrough Assembly, Triumphant Christian Centre.
