LECTURE: “FROM CONVERSION AND CIVILIZATION TO DEVELOPMENT? SHIFTING PATTERNS IN BRITISH AND AMERICAN PROTESTANT GLOBALISM IN THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURIES”
Drawing from his recent work in Christianity in the Twentieth Century: A World History (Princeton University Press, 2018), Dr. Stanley will shed light on the contours and patterns of British and American Protestantism amdist the global spread of Christianity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Brian’s book Christianity in the Twentieth Century charts the transformation of one of the world’s great religions during an age marked by world wars, genocide, nationalism, decolonization, and powerful ideological currents, many of them hostile to Christianity. Written by a leading scholar of world Christianity, the book traces how Christianity evolved from a religion defined by the culture and politics of Europe to the expanding polycentric and multicultural faith it is today — one whose growing popular support is strongest in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, China, and other parts of Asia.
