After the Reformation, Christians found themselves living amidst wars of religion, Enlightenment, and colonization. This volume explores the spread of Christianity to lands outside Europe and the Middle East, the new pluralism within Christianity, and the incredible transformation of the Americas and of Christianity in the Americas, including the advent of Evangelical, African American, and Asian Christianities. It includes 50 illustrations, maps, bibliographies, and an 8-page color gallery.
