From 2005 to 2008, CDE conducted a major study of the explosive growth of Pentecostal and Charismatic churches in South Africa. The results have been compiled in the CDE publication Under the Radar: Pentecostalism in South Africa and its potential social and economic role.
In March 2008 CDE held a workshop on the social and economic impact of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in South Africa. It was addressed by Professor David Martin of the London School of Economics, Professor Matthews Ojo of the Regent University College of Science and Technology in Accra, Ghana, and Professor Lawrence Schlemmer. Prof Berger participated in a subsequent discussion. The edited proceedings of the workshop appear in this publication.
