Philip Jenkin's masterpiece 'The Next Christendom'..has altered the entire public conversation about global Christianity. 'God's continent' is just as good...this one is a gem, abounding in sparkling points, telling anecdotes, observations and statistics...Another seminal book to be sure. ( Meic Pearce The Third Way)
[Jenkins] has produced an eminently readable and yet magisterial work, marked through-out by differentiated and reasoned judgements. ( The Very Revd Dr John Arnold, The Church Times)
Remarkable... a brilliant book. ( Christian W. Troll, The Tablet)
God's Continent portrays a fascinating picture of Islam and Christianity and is a much needed, well-balanced account of the vocal and valuable role that religion continues to play in public life. s
...rich in information and discussion...both scholarly and objective [and] written with clarity... ( Catholic Herald)
What does the future hold for European Christianity? Is the Christian church doomed to collapse under the weight of globalization, Western secularism, and a flood of Muslim immigrants? Is Europe, in short, on the brink of becoming "Eurabia"? Though many pundits are loudly predicting just such a scenario, Philip Jenkins reveals the flaws in these arguments in God's Continent and offers a much more measured assessment of Europe's religious future. While frankly acknowledging current tensions, Jenkins shows, for instance, that the overheated rhetoric about a Muslim-dominated Europe is based on politically convenient myths: that Europe is being imperiled by floods of Muslim immigrants, exploding Muslim birth-rates, and the demise of European Christianity. He points out that by no means are Muslims the only new immigrants in Europe. Christians from Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe are also pouring into the Western countries, and bringing with them a vibrant and enthusiastic faith that is helping to transform the face of European Christianity. Jenkins agrees that both Christianity and Islam face real difficulties in surviving within Europe's secular culture. But instead of fading away, both have adapted, and are adapting. Yes, the churches are in decline, but there are also clear indications that Christian loyalty and devotion survive, even as institutions crumble. Jenkins sees encouraging signs of continuing Christian devotion in Europe, especially in pilgrimages that attract millions--more in fact than in bygone "ages of faith." The third book in an acclaimed trilogy that includes The Next Christendom and The New Faces of Christianity, God's Continent offers a realistic and historically grounded appraisal of the future of Christianity in a rapidly changing Europe.
