"In looking back over the enormous changes wrought by the twentieth century, Western observers may have missed the most dramatic revolution of all. While secular movements like communism, feminism, and environmentalism have gotten the lion's share of our attention, the explosive southward expansion of Christianity in Africa, Asia, and Latin America has barely registered on Western consciousness. Nor has the globalization of Christianity - and the enormous religious, political, and social consequences it portends - been properly understood." "Philip Jenkins' The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity is the first book to take the full measure of the changing face of the Christian faith. Jenkins asserts that by the year 2050 only one Christian in five will be a non-Latino white person and that the center of gravity of the Christian world will have shifted firmly to the Southern Hemisphere."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Jenkins discusses his topic, non sine causa, sed sine fine. This is a real Goodreads star rating: the book is great, but I didn't like it very much, because it's an exceptionally well-organized data dump. Did you know that Christianity will probably be a non-Western religion pretty soon? Here's your statistical proof. That's pretty much it, though it is entirely skimmable, so you can find the specific datum you're looking for. But if I never read the phrase "Demography shows..." again, it will be too soon. ( )

Great book. Lots of very good statistics and trends on global Christianity, other religions, and shifts. ( )

"By the year 2050 only one Christian in five will be non-Latino and white, and
the center of gravity of the Christian world will have shifted firmly to the
Southern Hemisphere. This is the first book to take the full measure of the
changing face of the Christian faith. Philip Jenkins shows that the churches
that have grown most rapidly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America are often far
more morally conservative and apocalyptic than their northern counterparts.
Mysticism, puritanism, faith-healing, exorcism, and dream-visions - concepts
which more liberal western churches have traded in for progressive political
and social concerns - are basic to these newer churches. And the effects of
such beliefs on global politics, Jenkins argues, will be enormous, as religious
identification begins to take precedence over allegiance to secular
nation-states. Indeed, as Christianity grows in regions where Islam is also
expected to increase we may even see a return to the religious wars of the
past, fought out with renewed intensity and high-tech weapons far surpassing
the swords and spears of the middle ages." --back cover

Again a case where I wish I could give 4,75 stars, or assign stars to different aspects of a book.

Jenkins presents a convincing case that Christianity will dominate the future of humankind. Lots of data, and well-interpreted data too. I only wish he wasn’t so acritical towards neopentecostalism, Romanism and other heresies, because he ends up loosing the dimension of the quality, influence and endurance of faith.

Crucially, he states the future of Christendom stems from the so-called ‘Global South’, or more precisely Africa, Asia, Latin America and their diasporas and missions; also, that future Christendom will stem from currently charismatic, conservative Christians (whatever they become in the future), and he implies mostly from Evangelicals (more so than from charismatic Romanists). As David Paul ‘Spengler’ Goldman puts it, the next Christian army on Mecca may be African or Chinese, but not European.

All in all, a nice counterpoint to the catastrophism about Islam and secularism. ( )

An interesting thesis concerning a major global shift in the center of Christianity from the West to the areas of Asia, South America and Africa. The new members from these areas, coming in record numbers, are characterized as poor, conservative, Pentecostal and fervent in their beliefs. The author theorizes that this phenomena has been under-reported because the more liberal Western Church does not find this a satisfying situation. The book is carefully researched with charts and maps and covers the hot-button issue of where the rise of Islam fits into this developing scenario. ( )
