Christians were prominent in the foundation of the European community, which seems to be on its way to becoming the European Union. Christians were also involved in the overthrow of the communist regimes of Eastern Europe in 1989. In this book the author, historian and theologian, tackles questions that could face Christians and the churches in the coming years: what will the next decade bring and are changes needed in the churches of Europe, as this part of the world is changing so dramatically?
