About the Book

This book is full of insights on the influences of Pentecostalism on Catholic priests and seminarians in Nigeria. It is starred with Pentecostal features, which seem rejected but are now gradually being recovered. It raises the questions of dialogue among Christians in Nigeria, particularly with the Pentecostals. The many healing ministries run by some Catholic priests are an open invitation to be understood and enculturated within Nigeria’s Catholic Christianity. It is a book to be reckoned with read with deep interests by students and teachers, and appreciated by Catholic and non-Catholics.
