A celebrant faints during a service given by Pastor Ernest Odogba, right, who performs "miracles" at Covenant Life Church in Kaduna, Nigeria on Aug. 26, 2007. Nigeria is divided roughly 50/50 between a predominantly Muslim north and a largely Christian south. The desertification in the nation?s of the north and flooding in the south both drive people to the fertile center of the Middle Belt, where the two faiths meet and compete most dramatically. On this faultline,?the ambitions of both religions to expand and prosper, coupled with the?complex web of the environment, the economy and an ever-exploding?population, continue to put pressure on the land and its people to survive.
