According to Philip Jenkins, professor of history and religious studies at Pennsylvania State University, Christianity is becoming a “thoroughly globalized international phenomenon that tramples all of the boundaries and distinctions that we’re used to.
…Christianity is far from dead; in fact, it is thriving in unexpected places among unexpected people. Christianity and the message of the Bible resonate with people in the Global South, the nations of Africa, Latin and Central America, and most of Asia.
Jenkins lectured at Beeson Divinity school in March 2008. This month, the Beeson Journal published a brief article I wrote about the lectures. To read the article and find out more about Jenkins’ research into global Christianity, click here.
