The Religious Revolution in the Ivory Coast: The Prophet Harris and the Harrist Church

Synopsis

Walker's impressive study is the first to link Harris's background to the nature of his teachings and to discuss the dynamics of his movement's development. Harris not only articulated the confusion and desires of his followers but also created new aspirations by helping them see what they could achieve in their own society and in their relations with Europeans. Harris is the only evangelist in the history of the African continent to bring such numbers to Christianity.
