The Next Christendom was the first book to take the full measure of the changing balance of the Christian faith worldwide. Philip Jenkins showed that the churches that have grown most rapidly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America were often more morally conservative and apocalyptic than their northern counterparts. The effects of these churches on global politics would be enormous, as religious idenfication began to take precedence over allegiance to secular nation-states. Now, six years on, Jenkins completely updates the book; he examines the increasing friction between Christians and Muslims, the North-South conflicts within the Anglican communion, the development of Christianity in Asia, and the impact of immigrant and ethnic churches in Europe and North America.

Review quote

This is a landmark book. Baptist Times [an] important book... sober, scholarly analysis... Jenkins has such an acute eye for what is happening that the senario he depicts must be taken very seriously indeed. John Pridmore, The Tablet
