The Global Rise of Christianity

Noll Mark A

Mark Noll at The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life:
To greatly over-simplify the situation that now exists in the world with respect to "Christian civilization," if on a Sunday you want to attend a lively, jammed full, fervent, and life-changing service of Christian worship, you want to be in Nairobi, not in Stockholm. But if you want to walk home safely late at night, you want to be in Stockholm, not Nairobi ...
The magnitude, the multiplicity, the material conditions, and the manifold political implications of the new world Christianity open a new epoch in religious history. They may also open something equally new for the economic and political realities of the twenty-first century.
