Christianity in North America
Combines empirical data and original analysis to offer a uniquely detailed account of Christianity in North America
- Profiles of Christianity in every country in North America, coupled with attractive presentations of statistical and demographic information
- Analyses of leading features and current trends in regard to Christianity in North America, written by local scholars with expertise in their field
- Essays examining each of the major Christian traditions as they are finding expression in North America
- Essays assessing the direction of Christian faith in North America in relation to such key themes as faith and culture, worship and spirituality, theology, social and political engagement, mission and evangelism, religious freedom, gender, inter-faith relations, immigration and xenophobia, Christian nationalism, ecology, and media
Building on the success of EUP’s highly acclaimed Atlas of Global Christianity, this volume is the seventh in a series of reference works that takes the analysis of worldwide Christianity to a deeper level of detail. It focuses on Christianity in North America, covering every country and offering both reliable demographic information and original interpretative essays by locally based scholars and practitioners. It maps patterns of growth and decline, assesses major traditions and movements, analyzes key themes, and examines current trends. As a comprehensive account of the presence of Christianity in every part of North America, this volume will become a standard work of reference in its field.
