Summary: In this pathbreaking book, award-winning author Douglas Jacobsen describes global Christianity and provides a framework for understanding the varied experiences of Christians around the world. Focusing on the five big continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America, Jacobsen recounts their differing histories, contemporary experiences, and cultural theologies. In the current era of massive and dynamic global challenges, this accessible and fair-minded volume sets the stage for Christians worldwide to engage the gospel -- and each other -- more deeply. Global Gospel contains numerous maps, charts, and illustrations that aid comprehension. Professors and students of the history of Christianity, global Christianity, and missions will value this work, as will all readers interested in world Christianity.
