In 1957, during the fervor of the East African Revival, Matthew Ajuoga led over 16,000 communicants out of the Anglican Church in Nyanza, Kenya, to establish the Church of Christ in Africa-Johera. In 1993, after thirty-six years of silence, Matthew Ajuoga offered his "God-Talk"-the story of his Christian experiences-within the Johera Narrative. In African Christian God-Talk, George Pickens provides an effective collection and presentation of Ajuoga's Johera Narrative.
George F. Pickens holds a Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Birmingham, England. He is Professor and Program Director of Mission and Intercultural Studies, Kentucky Christian College, in Grayson.
