Podcast: The State of African Christianity Today

Is there revival going on in Africa right now? Or is there a greater need for reform? Find out in this podcast as I'm joined by brother Kofi from the Fiery Logic blog. We discuss the history of Christianity in Africa, how the Word of Faith and Hyper-Charismatic movements became so big, what things are like now, and even how the situation can change.
