The Atlas of Global Christianity is a visual quick reference of the changing status of global Christianity over the 100 years since the epoch-making 'Edinburgh 1910' World Missionary Conference. It is the first scholarly atlas to depict the 20th century shift of Christianity from the Global North to the Global South. The full-color atlas, with maps and graphs, is divided into five major sections:
Part I covers the world, including thematic maps on world issues and world religions and comparing the global context of 1910 and 2010. It also contains maps on religious freedom and religious diversity.
Part II focuses on context with thematic maps reflecting major Christian traditions, such as Anglicans, Independents, Marginals, Orthodox, Protestants, and Roman Catholics, as well as Evangelicals and Pentecostals.
Part III depicts Christianity before the formation of the twenty-one regions of the United Nations (Eastern Africa, Western Africa, Southern Africa, and more). Each region is described in four pages that features an historical essay, maps, graphs, tables, and charts. In addition, essays and maps are included for each of the six United Nations continental areas (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Northern America, and Oceania).
Part IV views the world through languages, peoples, and cities, a new approach to analyzing Christianity and its resources.
Part V focuses on the Christian mission by analyzing data on missionaries, finance, Bible translation, media broadcasting, and other forms of evangelization.
In the back sleeve, a CD with an interactive presentation assistant is included. It contains presentation-ready files of all maps, charts, graphs, and tables for classroom use.
