Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the book that looks at the years since the end of apartheid and concentrates primarily on the socio-cultural changes that have followed the political revolution. The book explores the correlation between religious belonging, expressed in church attendance and upward economic mobility by focusing on the life experiences of a group of young professional women who went to two Pentecostal Charismatic Christian (PCC) churches in the Gauteng area. By focusing on young, black, professional women who are becoming part of the black middle class, it is concentrated not on the general experiences of most black South Africans, but on a significant minority group, which has emerged in post-apartheid South Africa. Finally, the chapter presents structure and organization of the book.

Keywords: Pentecostal Charismatic Christian (PCC) churches; post-apartheid South Africa; women
