The first edition of The Next Christendom has been hailed as a landmark in our understanding of modern Christianity. Renowned scholar of religion Philip Jenkins was the first to document Christianity's dramatic demographic shift to the Southern Hemisphere and to recognize the larger significance of that previously overlooked phenomenon. In this new and substantially expanded second edition, Jenkins continues to study the remarkable expansion of Christianity in the global South, in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Among the major new topics covered are the growing schism between Northern and Southern churches over issues of gender and sexuality, immigrant and ethnic churches in Europe and North America, and changes in the Roman Catholic Church since the election of Pope Benedict XVI. Jenkins also analyzes the growing conflicts between Christians and Muslims around the world, particularly in Nigeria and the Sudan, but also within Europe itself. The first volume in a trilogy on the changing face of Christianity, this award-winning book will be welcomed by all of those who have come to recognize Philip Jenkins as one of our leading commentators on religion and world affairs.
