century. This latest edition of the book takes a close look at the rapid growth
of evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity in the southern hemisphere,
addresses the decline in traditional mainline denominations, examines the
influence of technology on the spread of the gospel, and discusses how
Christianity intersects with other religions in countries all over the world.
