Description

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.
