Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is well written and articulates the material in a clear and easy to understand manner. However I didn't use it much in my course work.

Format: Paperback
The misinformed and dis-informing book propagates caricatures nonwestern socieies and their Christian communities, in service of American/Western pride and a false sense Christian charity.
First, a misinformation example: "Many ... religions ... began in Asia: ... Confucianism ... in eastern Asia.". Confucianism is NOT a religion, if by "religion" one refers to the supernatural or the transcendent, as is common. Please ask Voltaire, if you would rather not take this ethnic Chinese person's word for it. If the authors cannot get such basics straight, how I can take their other claims seriously?
When European colonizers came to sub-Sahara Africa, ... they succeeded in replacing African way of life with European political, economic, social, and religious institutions." Pardon me --- "replacing"? Or do the authors mean "superimposing"? Such carelessness is ridiculous.
Second, an example of misleading categories: "Although Christianity was founded in Asia (Palestine), it "left Asia very early and forced its way back several centuries later as a stronger and `intruder' which Asia consistently refused to entertain." Please, exactly what has Japan in common with Jordan, and Korea with Kuwait? That is, besides that none of them is western? May be the following details are irrelevant to the authors' mind: Korea has a very sizable and dynamic Christian minority; and the Philippines is actually Christian.
Third: an example of caricatures of the "other" to (subconsciously) serve American pride: In the chapter entitled "Jesus in Asia", I note a section entitled "Asian Poverty" but no sections called "Asian Affluence". Yoo-hoo. Have the authors perhaps heard of a country call Japan, and places like Singapore and Hong Kong?
