Now in its second edition, Christianity as a World Religion locates Christianity within its global context. Structured by geographical region, it covers Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America, and Oceania. It deals with four dimensions of Christianity in each context: Christian history, churches and society, interreligious relations, and distinctive worship and theology. Study questions and further reading suggestions are provided in each chapter.

Fully updated throughout, this second edition now includes:

- A new chapter covering Christianity in Oceania
- Further analysis of the early growth of Christianity in Asia and Africa
- Coverage of research trends in migration, theologies of prosperity, and the role of local agents in evangelization
- Coverage of global interconnections and networks, new movements, global Catholicism, Christian political engagement and persecution of Christian communities
- A thorough revision of the conclusion, including reflection on the discipline of world Christianity and its implications for theology
- 40 images and maps
- Chapter summaries
- Extra resources online including a timeline and weblinks
- New text design and layout, making the text more student-friendly and accessible

Christianity as a World Religion is ideal for courses on World Christianity, Christianity as a Global Religion, the History of Christianity and contemporary Christian theology.
