Description Health, Wealth, and Power in an African Diaspora Church in Canada de Thomas Aechtner:

This book investigates an African diaspora Christian community in Calgary, Alberta, and explores the ways in which the church's beliefs and practices impact the lives of its migrant congregation. Importantly, it details the expressed utility of two central ideas: the Prosperity Gospel and Holy Spirit Power. As congregants and church materials persistently maintained, these two aspects of African Pentecostalism supply operative spiritual machinery to overcome the difficulties of living in Canada, as well as the means to thrive in a foreign land. Additionally, the connection between these elements and the democratization of power is explored, and Tom Aechtner provides an analysis of how the church cultivates a form of Christian Pan-Africanism among its multiethnic and multinational populations. The book assesses the roles that African Pentecostalism plays in ameliorating longings for home and promoting the need to spiritually reform Canada. Aechtner also describes how African Pentecostalism relates to the mediation of responses to racism in the nation's officially multicultural society. Tom Aechtner is the Lecturer in History of Religious Thought at the University of Queensland, Australia. He holds a DPhil from the University of Oxford, UK, an MA in religious studies from the University of Calgary, Canada, and a BSc in biological sciences from the University of Alberta, Canada.
