Global Christianity : contested claims( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2002 Philip Jenkins wrote The Next Christendom . Over the past half century the centre of gravity of the Christian world has moved decisively to the global South, says Jenkins. Within a few decades European and Euro-American Christians will have become a small fragment of world Christianity. By that time Christianity in Europe and North America will to a large extent consist of Southern-derived immigrant communities. Southern churches will fulfil neither the Liberation Dream nor the Conservative Dream of the North, but will seek their own solutions to their particular problems. Jenkins' boo

Seeds of conflict in a haven of peace : from religious studies to interreligious studies in Africa by Frans Jozef Servaas Wijsen( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 7 August 1998 the American embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam were bombed and 200 people lost their lives.

This book investigates why this is so. How are interreligious relations dealt with in Africa, and more particularly, how are they and how should they be taught in institutions of higher learning?

Religious discourse, social cohesion and conflict : studying Muslim-Christian relations by Frans Jozef Servaas Wijsen( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses religious identity transformations through inter-religious relations. It aims to highlight the link between religious discourse and social cohesion, or the lack of such a link, and ultimately seeks to contribute to the dominant discourse on Muslim?Christian relations. The book is based on fieldwork in Indonesia and Tanzania, and is timely because of the growing tensions between Muslims and Christians in both countries. Its relevance lies in its fresh look at theories of religion and science. From its establishment as an academic discipline, the phenomenology of religion has
