When did Evangelism explosion in Uganda begin
Self-transformation and charismatic evangelical identity
Francis Müller uses an ethnosemantic approach to investigate a Swiss and a Ghanaian charismatic evangelical community in the greater Zurich area. The central element in the two communities is conversion and the associated self-transformation, which is associated with different cultural issues in the two communities. The desired radical self-transformation is risky because it implies a break with habits and previous life. Different techniques and normative identities are conveyed in the two communities that show how to deal with this discontinuity and how to live in a modern, secular world at all. The author thus makes a contribution to sociological conversion research.
