From the Back Cover:

Christianity is the world's largest religion, with one third of the world's population defining themselves as Christians, and with a truly global presence. In a clear and lively style, Jacobsen describes how Christianity has developed and spread around the world and how Christians in many different cultures live their faith today. The book offers a balanced and engaging account of global Christianity, past and present, with fascinating accounts of the world's four major Christian traditions: Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, and Pentecostal. The geographical territory covered by the book is uniquely comprehensive, including Africa, Asia, and Latin America as well as Europe, North America, and the Pacific. The book contains fascinating demographic insights about global Christianity.
