We built this portrait of Mensa Otabil from Accra, Ghana, a pioneer in building independent charismatic churches in modern, urban Africa, as part of a documentary series, "African Christianity Rising." For our just-released documentary series, AFRICAN CHRISITANITY RISING, visit our website: jamesault.com.
Though we couldn't include all of this portrait of Mensa Otabil in our film, it is one of the many "Extras" included in our films' Complete Educational Edition. Again, for details, visit our website. Otabil's own quite moving personal story demonstrates, I believe, the appeal of his kind of practical Christianity to young, urban Africans, that, in less selfless hands, can become the kind of ego-centered "prosperity gospel" so often held up for criticism.
