Description

This book is the first unified and comprehensive attempt in the post-Cold War period to give an account of world Christianity's encounter with Marxism. After exploring the intellectual foundations of the antagonism on both sides, Janz examines the particular contexts of the USSR, the United States, Poland, Nicaragua, Albania, Cuba, and China, and suggests that the "Marxist project" is not as dead as one might imagine.show more

Review quote

Janz has written a gem of a book, one that recounts the history of encounters between Marxism and Christianity in eight very different contexts and countries....The book offers an ambitious yet very successful recounting of the history of encounters in each country. I read every page with great interest. * Theological Studies *show more
