Modern Christianity Outside The West


In 1900, 80 percent of the world's Christians were in Europe and North America. One hundred years later, 60 percent of them live in the global south and east. This course will not survey the institutional growth of Christianity throughout the non-Western world. It focuses instead on some of the central themes and patterns in the rise of global Christianity, including its tendency toward charismatic exuberance, its appeal as a modernizing force, and its capacity to inspire political reform and to mobilize the masses for social change.
