9780748632671: Atlas of Global Christianity

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 20th century shift of Christianity from the Global North to the Global South. Contextual information on world issues and world religions is included. The atlas is ecumenical in that it covers every Christian tradition including Anglicans, Independents, Marginals, Orthodox, Protestants, and Roman Catholics. This is the first atlas to incorporate historical essays on Christianity 1910-2010 by scholars from each region of the world. Included is a CD that contains all maps and graphs ready for classroom use.

From Booklist:

Though there is a considerable amount of text in this data-rich atlas, the obvious intent is to visually represent the current status of Christianity when compared to that of a century ago. On almost every other page, readers will find a map, chart, table, or other graphic comparing numbers from 1910 and 2010. At times, the focus is Christianity in general. Other times, it’s particular Christian groups (e.g., Catholics, Evangelicals, Anglicans)—all in the form of large, clear, vividly colored maps. The regional focus also varies throughout. Sections 1 and 2 present a global picture. Section 3 visits each continent, giving plenty of attention to significant subregions (e.g., eastern, middle, northern, southern, and western Africa). In fact, the atlas bills itself as the “first atlas to map Christian affiliation at the provincial level.” The focus narrows even more in section 4, which highlights the status of Christianity in major cities around the world. The fifth and final section is the most unique. Its focus is on the past 100 years of Christian missions and evangelistic efforts. Each continent receives individual treatment in the section along with topics like Bible translation and distribution, Christian finance, and responsiveness to evangelistic efforts. Accompanying most of the eye-catching maps are signed essays (each two pages in length), written by at least one of the atlas’ 64 expert contributors. The essays contain a surprising amount of historical and background information and typically include a five-source bibliography. The atlas also offers an added technological bonus—a DVD, referred to as a “presentation assistant.” It offers all the visuals of the atlas in easily exported formats (.jpg, .png). The overall feel of the atlas is only mildly scholarly, and it is suitable for users in academic libraries and public libraries with large religion collections. --Wade Osburn

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Mixed media product. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
