“We Are on the Internet”: Contemporary Pentecostalism in Africa and the New Culture of Online Religion
Type of Resource: Book Chapter
Year of Publication: 2015
- Internet Or Digital Rights and Freedoms
Author(s): J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu
This chapter examines media usage among contemporary Pentecostals in Africa, focusing on their uses of the internet.² Contemporary Pentecostalism consciously presents itself as a “globalizing religious project” and therefore deliberately cuts a very international outlook in terms of public image (Meyer 2010). We will look at how the Christian movements concerned mediate religious experiences online and the ways in which they have adapted to the reality of virtual culture as part of their mission.
