And to follow on from the last blog entry, I offer the following suggestion.
I’ve recently been reading a copy of Philip Jenkins’ “The Next Christendom”. It has been quite an interesting read not only concerning the rise of Christianity in the global south (Latin America and Africa most highly featured). As a person of the global north, and particularly as person who has always been a part of the church in the global north, some of Jenkins’ statements I’ve found quite eye-opening. Particularly, the way Jenkins brings to light the necessity to navigate carefully the Christian and Islam terrain we are now venturing into.
If you haven’t read it, I highly suggest it. Thoughts if you have?
