This volume takes an in-depth look at the global expansion of evangelical Protestantism during the past century. While this topic is currently on the agenda of many, the significance of Christianity Reborn lies in its concern to understand evangelical faiths and institutions in widely differing cultural contexts beyond the Western world.Based on new research by prominent historians of religion, these chapters explore the expansion of evangelical Christianity (including charismatic Christianity) into non-English-speaking lands, giving special attention to dynamic indigenous responses. The range of locations covered includes western and southern Africa, eastern and southern Asia, Latin America, and Oceania. An important concluding article provides a sociological account of evangelicalism's success, highlighting its ability to create a multiplicity of faith communities suited to different ethnic, racial, and geographical regions.ContentsGeneral Editors' PrefaceContributorsIntroductionDonald M.
