This is the first extensive study of the African Christian Roho religion, or Holy Spirit movement, in Western Kenya. Hoehler-Fatton uses extensive oral histories and life narratives to provide a counterweight to existing historical literature, and also brings to the fore the role of women in the evolution and expansion of the Church.

MEDIA REVIEWS
an important contribution to the scholarship on Christianity in Africa ... what makes this study so valuable is the sensitivity and skill with which Hoehler-Fatton treats two topics that are too often overlooked in studies of Christianity in Africa: the historical dynamics of the 'religioyus imagination' in church life; and the important role of women in preserving and fostering a Christian faith in Africa. Women of Fire and Spirit will be important reading for all those interested in the intersections of religion, gender, and colonialism in Africa for some time to come. * Matthew Engelke, University of Virginia, Journal of Religion in Africa, XXVII, 3 *
