Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on a recent form of Christianity that has drawn primarily on Pentecostal, Charismatic and Evangelical expressions. Following Mann's argument that periodisations is a key part in explaining the development of a social phenomenon the author suggests that the broader Pentecostal, Neo-Pentecostal and Charismatic movements can be divided into five periods which collectively the author refers to as Pentecostal Charismatic Christianity (PCC). The chapter outlines the types of Pentecostal churches that have emerged in South Africa so as to locate the two churches like His People and Grace Bible churches into a specific socio-historical milieu. It finally gives an overview of the categorization and histories which the author drews up and shows that the women in this study belonged to churches which were part of the 'Individual Empowerment Pentecostal Charismatic Christianity' period.
