hanciles-new-volume-rec.pngD.W. and Ruth Brooks Professor of World Christianity Jehu Hanciles has edited the new volume Christianity Worldwide: 1800-2000 (SPCK, 2021), which brings together voices from around the world to explore how Christianity grew and developed in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

In the anthology, writers and theologians from each region of the globe lay out the history of Christianity between 1800 and 2000 in their part of the world, showing how repeatedly it was local believers who drove the changes in those centuries, both in sharing faith and adapting it to their particular culture. These histories include not only the wide range of European-founded denominations, but also regional innovations across the globe, particularly Pentecostalism.

Tracing connections and themes across continents, the volume—part of the SPCK International Study Guide series—is ideal for students of theology and history learning about the development of Christianity around the globe, especially in the global south.
