Clouds of Witnesses: Christian Voices from Africa and Asia

April 29, 2011

Trevin Wax gives some notes on a book he recently finished, Clouds of Witnesses by Mark A. Noll and Carolyn Nystrom:

Clouds of Witnesses puts a human face on the statistics that filled Mark Noll’s previous book The New Shape of World Christianity. The authors profile 17 key figures from recent church history in Africa and Asia, giving readers a compelling look at Christianity’s growth in a context quite different from our own. Noll and Carolyn Nystrom report these stories as fairly as possible and do not gloss over controversies in other parts of the world, including polygamy, miracles, syncretism, and Keswick-inspired “holiness” theology.
