Title:Benin Baptism
Notes:"...Charismatic Christianity is particularly lively...in those areas that are under pressure to change, are questioning their major traditions, are experiencing cultural and linguistic ambivalence, and/or subject to considerable human transience. This...is certainly the case for Benin. In the Pentecostal mind, there can be no neat republican separation between Church and state, the religious and the political, since...God is Lord and Master of all..." (Claffey, 230)
