520    What is the state of Christianity today, and what might it
       look like in the future? In the West, the story for a long
       time has revolved around decline and the loss of monopoly 
       status, but how are these shifts changing the practice of 
       Christianity or individual belief? Similarly, the rapid 
       growth of Christianities in the Global South has been well
       reported, but the continuing complex intersections of 
       mission Christianity with indigenous religions are less 
       well known. Large-scale flows of people across 
       increasingly fluid borders mean that not only does 
       immigration sometimes significantly boost Christian 
       numbers in a given country, but that different forms of 
       Christianity shift traditional religious landscapes. How 
       will emerging trends such as 'reverse mission' from the 
       Global South affect Christianities in areas more used to 
       sending rather than receiving missions? As the majority of
       believers shifts from the West to the Global South, how 
       will issues such as homosexuality be played out 
       theologically, politically and individually? Will new 
       virtual churches manage to create viable long-term 
       communities? How does new festival Christianity function 
       in the religious life of an individual? The divergent and 
       oftentimes contradictory state of Christianity in the 
       modern world fuels questions about its place and future in
       the world: in politics, education and healthcare. This 
       book brings together cutting edge research on the most 
       recent changes and trends in Christianity worldwide. 
       Contributors drawn from the USA, UK and Europe, Africa and
       East Asia offer an invaluable breadth of coverage, 
       expertise and disciplinary perspective at the 
       intersections between sociology of religion, theology, 
       politics, education and human geography
