This book is about conservative Protestant Christians and their spread around the globe. It focuses on "Health and Wealth" Christians. A ministry in Scandinavia is shown to be closely linked to evangelicals in other parts of the world, particularly the United States. The book provides the first extended account by an anthropologist of a Health and Wealth ministry. It makes a major contribution to an understanding of the material lives of these Christians: their art, architecture and uses of electronic technologies such as television, videos and the Internet.

Editorial Reviews

"...Coleman presents us with a solid anthropological analysis that helps to put flesh on the world of globalization theories and does so with a fine sense of balance between insider and outsider social-scientific perspectives. His presentation is readable and accessible to a wider audience than specialized scholars." Journal of Religion
