The notion of pneumatic phenomena is of much interest within contemporary Ghanaian Christianity. The reason is that Christianity in Ghana, like global Christianity, has been influenced by Pentecostal and Charismatic movements. The main aim of this dissertation is to examine the notion of pneumatic phenomena in contemporary Ghanaian Christianity with emphasis on the interpretation and appropriation of 1 Cor 12-14.
Die Gaben des Heiligen Geistes werden im heutigen ghanaischen Christentum besonders betont. Der Grund dafür ist, dass das Christentum Ghanas wie das globale Christentum von pentekostalen und charismatischen Bewegungen beeinflusst worden ist. Ziel dieser Dissertation ist es, die Auffassung von pneumatischen/Geist-Phänomenen im heutigen ghanaischen Christentum mit dem Fokus auf die Interpretation und Aneignungen von 1. Kor. 12-14 darzustellen.

Before the advent of Christianity and Islam in Ghana and Togo, citizens practiced forms of African traditional religion. African traditional religion and culture domesticated both Islam and Christianity in West Africa such that their exclusiveness was reduced with its own inclusive tenor. However, Europeans‘ colonial presence and policies, coupled with their association with Christianity affected all aspects of the lives of the colonized people as well as their relationships, including the relationship between adherents of Islam and Christianity.
The main conclusions drawn from this study are that since there seem not to have been any clear-cut guidelines or documented policy of the British and the French on Christians and Muslims in Africa, the colonial governments related with Islam based on the discretion or decision of the Governor General. But whether a policy or attitude, it is clear that it was acted upon, implemented and very consistent in action. After the independence of the Ghana and Togo, successive governments of the two countries under study have made efforts constitutionally, educationally and spiritually to foster Christian-Muslim relations since adherents of the two religions continue to interact and engage one another.
