Christianity's demographics, vitality, and influence have tipped markedly toward the global South and East. Addressing this seismic shift, one of America's leading church historians shows how studying world Christianity changed and enriched his understanding of the nature of the faith as well as of its history.

Mark Noll illustrates the riches awaiting anyone who gains even a preliminary understanding of the diverse histories that make up the Christian story. He shows how coming to view human culture as created by God was an important gift he received from the historical study of world Christian diversity, which then led him to a deeper theological understanding of Christianity itself. He also offers advice to students who sense a call to a learned vocation.

This is the third book in the Turning South series, which offers reflections by eminent Christian scholars who have turned their attention and commitments beyond North America.

From the Back Cover:

A Leading Historian Discovers the Global Christian Story

"Many of us have learned so much from what Mark Noll has taught us about the past. But now we have the book that we have been hoping he would also write: a marvelous, personal account of his own journey thus far, from his early days as a teenage baseball fan in Iowa to his groundbreaking work as a gifted historian of global Christianity."
--Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Mark Noll takes his readers on a fascinating journey in which they can share his enthusiasm of discovery regarding one of the most remarkable developments within recent memory: the burgeoning of Christianity around the globe. Noll's range of expertise is truly wonderful, and he offers a host of insights along the way."
--George Marsden, University of Notre Dame

"Yes, I'm prejudiced. I know that any new book by Mark Noll is undoubtedly a cause for excitement, both for myself and for anyone interested in the history of Christianity. I am especially delighted by From Every Tribe and Nation, which takes the literature on world Christianity to a whole new level. The book's foundation is the modern-day evolution of Christianity into a global faith, and it asks the essential 'So what?' questions about the implications of this overwhelming fact. Readable, insightful, and often moving."
--Philip Jenkins, Baylor University

"Experience is all. From Every Tribe and Nation is a spirited tale told in the first person of how a boy who grew up in a Baptist community in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, came to know, in his life and in his scholarship, the truth of the words of Revelation, 'By your blood you ransomed for God saints from every tribe and language and people and nation.' Noll is a good storyteller, and his lively accounts of Christian life and witness across the globe, in Asia and Africa and Eastern Europe, will delight and inspire readers."
--Robert Louis Wilken, University of Virginia
