This is the first scholarly treatment of nineteenth century Christianity to discuss the subject in a global context. In addition to exhaustive 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.
