To the Ends of the Earth: The Globalization of Christianity

To the Ends of the Earth: The Globalization of Christianity

by KennethHylson-Smith (Author)


Kenneth Hylson-Smith refuses to accept the current widely held view that the Christian churches have been in decline for the last three hundred years. God's funeral, he asserts, is not immanent. Tracing the story of the global spread of Christianity from the seventeenth century through to the twenty first, the author argues that the Christian church throughout the world is in better shape now than ever before. Focusing on the church as a global phenomena rather than a merely European and American one Hylson-Smith opens our eyes to the amazing story of Christianity in Asia, Africa and South America. This book is a great antidote for the negativity one often finds about the future of the church.
