The Changing World of Christianity

The Global History of a Borderless Religion

by Dyron Daughrity (Author)
Textbook X, 290 Pages

Summary

Christianity has changed. Formerly known as the religion of Europe and North America, it is now a religion of the Global South: Asia, Africa, and Latin America. However, Christianity has never been merely a Western phenomenon – it has always been a borderless religion. Indeed, in six of the world’s eight cultural blocks, Christianity is the largest faith.
With convenient maps, helpful statistics, and concise histories of each of the world’s major cultural blocks, The Changing World of Christianity is a dynamic guide for understanding Christianity’s new ethos. From Ireland to Papua New Guinea, Argentina to China, South Africa to Russia, this book provides a clear and encyclopedic look at Christianity, the world’s largest and most global religion.
