Abstract

Chapter 1 describes a scene depicting the fulfillment of a Pentecostal bishop’s vision to unite, at least verbally, the divided Christian churches to become a stronger force in shaping the affairs of the English-speaking Caribbean. This leads to an explosive confrontation between perceived demonic forces operating to sabotage God’s plan to accomplish the goal of church unity, providing further legitimacy to religious leaders and their adherents that they are warriors for Christ combating sinister supernatural forces operating in the physical realm of everyday Caribbean life. This scene highlights some major themes on Charismatic religious networking, its ability to impact the Caribbean world, and the fate of the Charismatic movement as it pushes toward an uncertain and precarious future.
