Full Product Description
In The Future of the Global Church, Patrick Johnstone, author of six editions of the phenomenal prayer guide, Operation World, draws on his fifty years experience to challenge us with his bold vision of the global Christian church.
The Future of the Global Church weaves together the strands of history, demographics and religion to present a breath-taking, full-colour graphical and textual overview of the past, present and possible future of the Church around the world.
Through a thought-provoking glimpse into likely scenarios humankind may face in the next 40 years, The Future of the Global Church identifies significant trends that are rarely or never addressed by todays media.
The Future of the Global Church highlights the impact of evangelical Christianity over the past two centuries, as well as the astonishing growth of Evangelicalism over the past half century.Johnstone focuses clearly on the unfinished task of world evangelization, with a special emphasis on the worlds 12,000 people groupsespecially those that have had least exposure to the Gospel.
Finally, Johnstone hones in on the role of the local church in tackling the unfinished task of world evangelization, especially that of reaching the worlds least-evangelized peoples with the Gospel.
Inside this work, you will find:
- Likely scenarios for evangelical Christian ministry in the coming four decades.
- Worldwide impact of the first 20 centuries of Christianity.
- Comparisons of the impact of Christianity with other world religions.
- Past, present and probable future contributions of different Christian traditions.
This book examines trends that will have a major impact on the course of world events for a generation to come. God is in control: He holds the future in His hands yet invites us to be His co-workers. How effective are you and your church or your organization as participants in His plan for the peoples of the world?

The Future of the Global ChurchIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
Those who love maps, statistics and the graphic illustration of both, will enjoy this book. The information it contains is amazingly extensive, although it has to be taken on trust, because checking and referencing can only be done with the electronic component of this book - DVD Rom, website, and the like. There seems to be something for everyone with an interest in our world, here. The caveat is contained in the book’s title. The conclusions drawn from the material, and the aim to which the book is directed, do strike one as somewhat narrow, sectarian even; but that should not overshadow what is a fascinating achievement.
