Recensie(s)

This volume acknowledges the polycentric nature of Christian ecumene. It combines historical breadth and sociological depth. ...With its rich variety of research methods, writing styles, and case studies, this volume is a welcome addition to the field of world Christianity and could be a valuable reference book both to experts and lay readers. (Mission Studies, 2013) Any scholar wanting background information on Christianity in any region of the world will find this book very helpful. (Ecclesiastical History, 1 July 2013) I do think, however, there is some merit in understanding how the world views Christianity at large. Because of that, I do recommend this resource with the qualification that the reader realize that this book is painting with extremely large strokes the Christian faith. (Christian Book Notes, 1 July 2013) It should prove to be a valuable resource for both classroom and specialist use. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty. (Choice, 1 October 2012)
