Item description for Beyond Christendom: Globalization, African Migration and the Transformaiton of the West by Jehu Hanciles...

Overview
Examining global megatrends, an African scholar shows how immigrant groups are decisively shaping the future of Christianity. "In a series of wide-ranging reflections on globalization and the currents driving it, Hanciles looks at emerging demographic flows and fault lines, arguing that these currents find their confluence in the transformation of the West by Christianized immigrant groups from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. His book is a rallying call for a fresh missionary engagement with global population shifts and a welcome contribution to studies in the field."--Lamin Sanneh, Yale Divinity School In this landmark study, Jehu Hanciles examines how non-Western movements and initiatives, particularly global migration, have the potential to transform Western society and Christianity. With more than two-thirds of Christians residing in the global South, the massive migration movement from the southern heartlands of Christianity to the old centers where faith is experiencing dramatic erosion and marginalization has profound implications for the renewal of Christianity as a global faith.

Publishers Description
Hanciles does yeoman work in part one synthesizing studies on the impact of globalization, revealing that its outcomes will likely not be determined by the Euro-American heartlands that sparked this movement. Instead, in parts two he shows that migration in general is having an enormous effect on shaping a new world order, and in part three, "Mobile Faith," he advances the case for the migration of Christians as carrying within it the seeds of renewal for the whole church and also the potential to reshape church-state and religion and culture relations globally.
