Christianity started in Jerusalem. For many centuries it was concentrated in the West, in Europe and North America. But in the past century the church expanded rapidly across Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Thus Christianity's geographic center of density is now in the West African country of Mali—in Timbuktu.

What led to the church's vibrant growth throughout the Global South? Brian Stiller identifies five key factors that have shaped the church, from a renewed openness to the move of the Holy Spirit to the empowerment of indigenous leadership. While in some areas Christianity is embattled and threatened, in many places it is flourishing as never before.

Discover the surprising story of the global advance of the gospel. And be encouraged that Jesus' witness continues to the ends of the earth.

"Combining years of global relationships, extensive research, millions of miles traveled, and a wide knowledge of Christian history, Brian Stiller has produced a must-read masterpiece! I know of no other book that so encapsulates mission history, current trends, and real-life anecdotes of faithful followers of Jesus Christ. The stories of the church around the world will encourage every Christian that we are part of the forward move of God. The walk through Christian history will educate and help the reader to know how our faith has traveled through the ages. And the overall message of the book will stimulate every reader to faithfulness right where we live."
