The Future of the Global Church

History, Trends and Possibilities

by Patrick Johnstone


Price: £24.99
Publisher:Authentic Media
Published:December 2011
Those who love maps, statistics and the graphic illustration of both, will enjoy this book. The information it contains is amazingly extensive, although it has to be taken on trust, because checking and referencing can only be done with the electronic component of this book - DVD Rom, website, and the like. There seems to be something for everyone with an interest in our world, here. The caveat is contained in the book’s title. The conclusions drawn from the material, and the aim to which the book is directed, do strike one as somewhat narrow, sectarian even; but that should not overshadow what is a fascinating achievement.
