Christianity is the world's largest religious grouping. It has undergone massive change in the twentieth century, and seems poised to undergo major transformations in the next. In this important and timely book, one of Christianity's most prolific and respected writers examines these changes, and their implications for the future.

"This is a stimulating book...there is fuel here, especially for those few Anglicans left who are interested in managing more than their own demise." Third Way "[A] stimulating overview of its [Christianity's] global potential at the dawn of the twenty-first century. With a critical yet sympathetic eye, McGrath explores questions confronting world Christianity entering its third millenium. McGrath is provocative and substantive." Christian Week "McGrath's easy writing style...makes this reader a useful tool to the interested layman in thinking through future issues. Neither rosy-eyed nor pessimistic, it does, however, provide food for thought. Another excellent title from one of the Church's leading thinkers and academics." Church of England Newspaper "Readable and accessible, this significant book should be included in libraries with collections in religion and Christianity." Choice "Alister McGrath brings scholarship to the pews in digestible bites...This is a book that needs to be read and talked about." The Gospel and Our Culture "[T]his is an important and serious study, which addresses a very large number of the most crucial developments in Christianity today." Theology "Simply-written, yet nuanced; well-informed and global, yet highly engaging." Future Survey "[T]his succinct, accessible assessment by Alister E. McGrath...examines "trends that can be discerned within global Christianity"." Overseas Ministries Study Centre "When a thinker of such note decides to speak on the "future of Christianity" it is wise for anyone interested in the Christian tradition to give a listen." Journal of Religion "It addresses the right issues, and does so in an interesting and stimulating manner." Colloquium "The book gives a good overview of this crisis and should be read by all who are interested in the future of Christianity." Izak Spangenberg, University of South Africa, Religion and Theology
