The "coming of Global Christianity," as historian Philip Jenkins put it, is gaining broad interest and attention, and its signs are quite evident. Africans lead the World Council of Churches and several of the Protestant world communions as well. China and Brazil are now closing in on the United States as the world's largest national population of Christians. And not only has the balance of Christianity's place in the world tipped markedly toward the global South and East, but so has public and scholarly consciousness of it.
This series features original scholarly works focused on particular movements, traditions, ideas or historic episodes in the development of Christianity in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific, and among migrating communities from these regions.
