Prosperity Teaching is fast becoming a standard
part of contemporary African Christianity. This teaching is
best understood in the Charismatic and Pentecostal churches
in Africa. The varied expressions and nuances call for a
critical analysis of the phenomenon. Prosperity Teaching
affirms wealth, divine healing, good health and long-life as
manifestations of God’s blessing. Conspicuous consumption is
often seen as a sign of a successful life and suffering has
no place in the divine order of God’s sovereignty. This
book, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? seeks to bring some
understanding to this teaching and shows the extent of its
impact in the wider society.

Emanuel Anim is a visiting lecturer at the
Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and
Culture in Ghana, and the All Nations Christian College in
the United Kingdom.
