This subject provides a comprehensive view of the global Christian movement over time. It explores the expansion and development of Christianity as a world religion between 1700 and today, concurrently with European colonisation and the emergence of the modern missionary movement. The subject examines themes in world Christianity from historical, theological and sociological perspectives. These themes include: the inculturation of Christianity, dialogue with other faiths, the impact of poverty and demands for social justice, hermeneutical diversity, and the rise of fundamentalism and Pentecostal movements. These themes are discussed with reference to non-western contexts, in comparison with Anglo-American and European trends.
