Andrew Walls on the Growth of the Non-Western Church

“Christian expansion has always been serial rather than progressive,” says Andrew Walls, founder of the Centre for the Study of World Christianity at the University of Edinburgh. “We don’t have a single center. There are no birthright churches.” In fact, he argues, the centers of Christianity have always moved about, from the fringes to the fringes. In our time, he says, the center has moved from Western Europe and North America to Africa and Latin America. Watch a five-minute video of excerpts and read the transcript of an interview with Walls housed on Faith & Leadership, an online project of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School. Walls, an influential expert on the global movement, explores the rise of non-Western Christianity and the ebb and flow of the church.
