A Moving faith : mega churches go south / Jonathan D
James.-- New Delhi: Sage Publications, 2015.
ISBN : 9789351500582.
270.83 JAM 143871
This book captures the dynamic shift of Christianity to
the South and portrays a global movement that promises
prosperity, healing, empowerment, and gender equality by
invoking neo-Pentecostal and Charismatic resources. It
postulates that neither North America nor Europe is the
current center of the Christian faith. The book provides
a detailed overview of how migration of Christians from
the South enriches the North, for instance, Pope Francis
brings newness, freshness, and the vigor characteristic
of the South. While describing Christianity-s growth in
the South, it suggests that, in fact, there is no center
for this global faith. It explores this great move of
Christianity by focusing on representative mega churches
in South Korea, Brazil, Peru, Ghana, Nigeria, Australia,
India, and the Philippines.

This book offers fascinating details about the extent to
which MRG was successful in creating a stereotypical
cinematic persona, and what repercussions it has on Tamil
Nadu. Delineating the cultural elements that were
meticulously mobilized to constitute MGR-s on-screen
image, it analyses the popularity he enjoyed among the
poor whose interests he constantly violated. This is done
by means of what Pandian termed as constructed
biographies which are popular narratives that ingeniously
present the cinematic as real.
