The New Virtual (Inter)Face Of African Pentecostalism, Rosalind Hackett

Rosalind I. J. Hackett

In the absence of research on religion and the Internet in Africa, this paper examines select African Pentecostal ministries that are developing websites as a major new interface for interacting with their membership, with potential converts, competing or partnering religious groups, and organs of the media and the state.
