Beyond Christendom: New Maps
Dr. Justo L. González
The nineteenth and twentieth centuries have brought momentous changes to the map of Christianity, so that it is no longer possible to speak of Christendom in either geographical or theological terms. How is not only the present reality, but also on the way we look at the entire history of Christianity, reflected in the interpretation of Christianity’s canonical texts? What does the incarnation of Christianity in a wide variety of often conflicting contexts imply for its unity?
