Situating a different trajectories of Pentecostal theological developments in the context of the Pentecostal congregation of City Christian Centre in Zanzibar reveals how several Pentecostal themes in relation to the other, which in this case is a Muslim dominated social context, is put in play at once. It highlights how modes of seclusion work along engagements in which modes of spiritual warfare are called into practice. (Less)
