520    "This book investigates the substantial and growing 
       contribution which African Independent and Pentecostal 
       Churches are making to sustainable development in all its 
       manifold forms. Moreover, this volume seeks to elucidate 
       how these churches re-shape the very notion of sustainable
       development and contribute to the decolonization of 
       development. Fostering both overarching and comparative 
       perspectives, the book includes chapters on West Africa 
       (Nigeria, Ghana and Burkina Faso), and Southern Africa 
       (Zimbabwe and South Africa). It aims to open up a sub-
       field focused on African Initiated Christianity within the
       religion and development discourse, substantially 
       broadening the scope of the existing literature. Written 
       predominantly by scholars from the African continent, the 
       chapters in this volume illuminate potentials and 
       perspectives of African Initiated Christianity, combining 
       theoretical contributions, essays by renowned church 
       leaders, and case studies focusing on particular churches 
       or regional contexts. Whilst the contributions in this 
       book focus on the African continent, the notion of 
       development underlying the concept of the volume is 
       deliberately wide and multidimensional, covering economic,
       social, ecological, political, and cultural dimensions. 
       Therefore, the book will be useful for the community of 
       scholars interested in religion and development as well as
       researchers within African studies, anthropology, 
       development studies, political science, religious studies,
       sociology of religion, and theology. It will also be a key
       resource for development policy-makers and practitioners"-
