Books Info:

Atlas of Global Christianity free pdf The Atlas of Global Christianity is a thorough visual 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 twentieth-century shift of Christianity to the Global South. It is also the first to map Christian affiliation at the provincial level. The atlas is divided into five major parts: Part I covers the whole world with thematic maps on world issues and world religions comparing the global context of 1910 and 2010. It also contains maps on religious freedom and religious diversity. Part II focuses in on the Christian context with thematic maps on major Christian traditions including Anglicans, Independents, Marginals, Orthodox, Protestants and Roman Catholics as well as Evangelicals and Pentecostals. Part III depicts Christianity by the 21 United Nations regions (Eastern Africa, Western Africa, Southern Africa, etc). Each region is described in four pages including an historical essay, maps, graphs, tables and charts. In addition, an essay 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 area of scholarly analysis of Christianity and its resources. Part V focuses on Christian mission by analysing data on missionaries, finance, Bible translation, media broadcasting, and other forms of evangelisation. In the back sleeve, a CD with an interactive presentation assistant is included. It contains presentation-ready maps, charts, graphs and tables for classroom use.
