Q Ideas on Four Faces of Global Christianity

Q Ideas refers to a recent article – ‘A Globalized God’ – by Scott M. Thomas in Foreign Affairs on the cultural and political implications of such a shift of Christianity from the ‘west’ to the ‘global south’, particularly in India, Latin America, Muslim Nations, and China.

‘[Christianity] is now returning to its roots by becoming a post-Western religion dominated by the peoples, cultures, and countries of the global South’, Thomas writes. ‘For U.S. policymakers – many of whom currently consider Islam to be the most urgent religious challenge to Washington’s foreign policy – the politics of global Christianity may soon prove just as pivotal.’
