A socio-historical background to the Keswick theology1 in East African Revival Movement as “walking in the light” Perspectives from Kenya

Hannes Knoetze, Robinson Kariuki Mwangi


The socio-historical background for walking in the light has been the dominant theme that has characterised socio-ethical beliefs and practices of the East African Revival Movement (EARM) since the arrival of the Keswick movement in East Africa in the early years of the 20th century. The early Keswick teachers propounded teaching of two types of Christians; the saved and those who have surrendered. This teaching found affinity in the social fabric of the East African Cultural setting influenced by factors from within and without. Thus, the prevailing experiences and circumstances in East Africa found fertile ground for entrenching Keswick theology in the EARM of walking in the light.
