The New Face of Christianity will be “the black woman,” claims Kwok Pui Lan of the William F. Cole Professor of Christian Theology and Spirituality at the Episcopal Divinity School. In mid ’07, Europe claimed the greatest number of Christians in the world: 532 million, followed by Latin America at 525 million and Africa at 417 million. But by 2025, Africa will claim the top spot with 634.6 million Christians, with Latin America a close second at 634.1 million, and Europe will drop to third at 521 million. The U.S. had 223 million Christians in mid-’07 and will grow slightly to 252 million by 2025. (Lexington Herald Leader 3/26/08)
