Kirsteen Kim is Associate Senior Lecturer at Leeds Trinity University College, UK.

Review:

'In this lucid text, Kim and Kim demonstrate how Christianity — like other world religions — is both an agent of globalization and a product of it. More precisely, they articulate the myriad different ways in which the Christian faith has been received in different parts of the world, and how believers of all kinds have made it their own. I recommend it warmly to specialists and non-specialists alike.'
Grace Davie, Professor of Sociology, University of Exeter, UK

'This book presents a wealth of information about Christianity across the globe. It looks at present as well as past, and brings the story up to the present day. It is an ideal resource for anyone looking for a compendium of reliable information presented clearly and concisely.'
Professor Linda Woodhead, Department of Religious Studies, Lancaster University, UK

"This book represents a remarkable achievement. Not only does it demonstrate, accessibly and succinctly, the global character of the Christian faith, it shows how that faith has over centuries become embedded in different regions and diverse cultures. It not only provides information; it provokes thought. It will be abundantly useful." Professor Andrew Walls, Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western World, University of Edinburgh and Centre for the Study of African and Asian Christianity, Liverpool Hope University, UK
