East Africa Revival: Sources

A long, long time ago I first came across reports of the East Africa Revival. At the time, I was clueless, been trapped in my ethnocentric slumbers. But some great folks have interacted with me and I’ve done a bit of research. Below is a list of sources on the East Africa Revival. I don’t think its exhaustive, but it would give anyone a good scholarly start.

Also, soon, I’ll be posting a couple of times on my very preliminary summary/evaluation of the revival.
