A New Christendom Explodes Into Life in the Third World
This volume, at 454 pages half again longer than the earlier ones, opens with the calamity of the First World War, the scale and horrors of which destroyed the 19th century confidence that science would create happiness. The Great War bred violent and tragic offspring: the communist revolutions, Nazism, the Second World War, and the nuclear arms-driven Cold War. Christianity suffered horribly under all these materialist ideologies, and then was repudiated by the culture of sexual and consumer hedonism which eventually replaced them. Yet despite all this, Christianity in all its major branches recovered and refocused on Christ’s Great Commission, while faith in Christ surged anew in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
