Christianity in Kenya

(Stephen Prothero writes: "The Kikuyu people of Kenya, the country’s largest tribe, refer to Mount Kenya as “Where God Lives.”")

A few years ago I read Boston U professor Stephen Prothero's American Jesus: How the Son of God Became a National Icon. Prothero also writes for CNN's "Belief Blog." He's got a nice essay called "Spiritual Safari: The Gospel According to Kenyan Cabbies." It reminds me of things I learned about folk Buddhism while riding in cabs in Singapore. I'll be teaching at a conference for Kenyan and Ugandan pastors this Oct. 22-29.
