Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts to do two things. First, it hopes to speak to the emerging debate about the impact that Pentecostalism is suggested as having on the sexual behaviour of young Christian converts in Africa and other parts of the world. Secondly, the chapter focuses on specific case of Uganda, which is often held up as an HIV success story. Specifically, it seeks to demonstrate how studying the impact of becoming born-again on the lives and values of university students opens up a set of questions that reach beyond the methodological complexities of evaluating the impact of religious belief on an individual.

Keywords: HIV; Pentecostalism; sexual behaviour; Uganda
