Perspectives on Writing World Christian History. Wilbert Shenk presents five important papers on how Christian historical and mission studies need to be changed in the light of the emergence of World Christianity and the demise of the West as its spiritual and political center. Shenk introduces the entire question in a brilliant essay that portrays the demographic, cultural, and theological shifts in tectonics. His introduction is followed by five chapters and concludes with a reflection by four historians on the contents of this pathbreaking book. "... an eye-opening collection of essays by first-rate scholars, who, all in their different ways, remind us that a very great deal of Christian history happened outside Europe and North America. This challenging book is essential reading for anyone interested in tracing the global development of Christianity through the centuries." Philip Jenkins, author of The Next Christendom
