"These are the final two volumes in a groundbreaking Cambridge series that presents Christianity not simply as a Middle Eastern/Western religion but as a worldwide phenomenon extending to India, East Asia, the Pacific Islands, and sub-Saharan Africa. [...] Both volumes, much like the series as a whole, are essential acquisitions not only for academic and seminary libraries but for large public libraries as well."
"...the editors and writers are to be congratulated on bringing order out of a difficult but fascinating period...it must be said that CUP has not departed from its usual standards of production. Footnotes, bibliography and index are impeccable, and this reviewer did not find a single misprint."
-Church Times (UK)
"Accurate and scholarly...comprehensive and helpful."
"The editors have recruited squadrons of experts, pulled their chapters into well integrated order, and themselves offered unusually useful summaries and conclusions. The treatment of traditional themes and historical Christian regions is superb, but even better is the innovative work on fresh subjects and new Christian areas of the globe."
-Mark A. Noll, The Christian Century
"Straightforward,nonclinical narratives ove apace, engagingly, in fact, with each an independent analysis treating of the particular and various backgrounds and conditions confronting Christian Europe on the cusp of Modernity.[...] Due to its breadth, this work recommends itself as a useful tool of reference."
-American Reference Books Annual
"...inspires awe....enormous diversity of of excellent scholars....stands out from rivals by its sheer scale....provide an effective structure....identification and development of themes is thoroughly successful....deeply impressive..." --Philip Jenkins
This is the first scholarly treatment of nineteenth century Christianity to discuss the subject in a global context. In addition to full chapters on European Christendom, it deals with the expansion of Christianity in the Americas, Asia, Australasia and Africa, covering both Catholic and Protestant traditions. Major themes include the churches' response to modern ideas, Christianity and nationalism, the expanding role of women in religious life and the explosion of new voluntary forms of Christianity.
