- As an Atheist, I truly believe Africa Needs God.
- Paris sier: Now a confirmed atheist, I've become convinced of the enormous contribution that Christian evangelism makes in Africa: sharply distinct from the work of secular NGOs, government projects and international aid efforts.

It offers something to hold on to to those anxious to cast off a crushing tribal groupthink. That is why and how it liberates.
