about this item

The Wiley Blackwell Companion to World Christianity provides a rich and comprehensive account of the rise, spread, and influence of Christianity throughout the world. Bringing together an outstanding group of international scholars in religion and religious history, the chapters cover all geographical regions of the world, and selected movements, themes, and theological issues in global Christian history. Topics covered in the historical section include the origins and expansion of Christianity, including the Protestant and Catholic reformations; considerations of slavery, missionaries, the Ecumenical movement, Vatican II, and many more. Thematic readings include discussions of Bible translations, women in the church, music and visual arts in world Christianity, and evangelical politics. Further readings explore the evolution of regional Christian traditions over the past two centuries in locales ranging from the Americas and Europe to Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. A final section offers insights into global expansion, decline, and secularization in contemporary Christianity. Drawing on impeccable international scholarship, The Wiley Blackwell Companion to World Christianity offers invaluable insights into the key issues surrounding a religion that is embraced by nearly a third of the global population.
