1. Extra interview bites from Dr. Kwame Bediako for a documentary film project on African Christianity produced and directed by James Ault. Dr Bediako, founder of the Akrofi-Christaller Institute in Ghana (acighana.org), was one of modern Africa's leading theologians and students of church history and of culture and religion before he passed away in 2008. He was a lead consultant and on-camera commentator in this documentary film series, just completed, entitled “African Christianity Rising—Part 1: Stories from Ghana” and “Part 2: Stories from Zimbabwe.” His profound insights helped shape this project from the outset and assistance from his Akrofi-Christaller Institute in Akropong, Ghana, supported it throughout.

  2. Andrew Walls, founder of the Centre for the Study of World Christianity at the University of Edinburgh, was a primary consultant to my documentary film project on African Christianity. He helped give it shape from the beginning, among other things, introducing me to his close colleague, Kwame Bediako. These extras are from one of the two life-story interviews shot with him at Yale Divinity School--yet, regrettably, not used in the two films just completed from this project: "African Christianity Rising: Stories from Ghana" and "Stories from Zimbabwe." This interview was shot in 2001. jamesault.com
