Beyond Christendom

Full Product Description

Examining global megatrends, an African scholar shows how immigrant groups are decisively shaping the future of Christianity.

"In a series of wide-ranging reflections on globalization and the currents driving it, Hanciles looks at emerging demographic flows and fault lines, arguing that these currents find their confluence in the transformation of the West by Christianized immigrant groups from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. His book is a rallying call for a fresh missionary engagement with global population shifts and a welcome contribution to studies in the field."
—Lamin Sanneh, Yale Divinity School

In this landmark study, Jehu Hanciles examines how non-Western movements and initiatives, particularly global migration, have the potential to transform Western society and Christianity. With more than two-thirds of Christians residing in the global South, the massive migration movement from the southern heartlands of Christianity to the old centers where faith is experiencing dramatic erosion and marginalization has profound implications for the renewal of Christianity as a global faith.

Jehu J. Hanciles, a Sierra Leonean, is associate professor of mission history and globalization at Fuller Seminary’s School of Intercultural Studies and author of Euthanasia of a Mission: African Church Autonomy in a Colonial Context.
