Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In this new and substantially expanded Third Edition, Philip Jenkins continues to illuminate the remarkable expansion of Christianity in the global South--in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

How should we interpret the enormous success of prosperity churches across the Global South? Politically, what will be the impact of new Christian movements?

Does Christianity liberate women, or introduce new scriptural bases for subjection?
