ABSTRACT
The article focuses on African migration and transformations in global Christianity. The world is as inundated by religious novelty, flux, and dynamism as it has ever been; and the rate of religious upsurge appears to be intensifying. These observations are less contested today by Western intellectuals than, say, three decades ago when the secularization thesis appeared to have almost unassailable influence. Fulfillment of this prediction never really entered the realms of possibility in non-Western societies.
