Andrew Walls predicted some 30 years ago that the agenda for Christian thought and action would be set increasingly by the rising Christian movements from the Global South. Today, however, the signs are much more prevalent. As you know, historically, the great questions and issues for Christian thought come from the front lines of the Christian mission in the world. In 1900, 80% of the world's Christians lived in Europe and North America. A century later, nearly 70% of the world's Christians now live in the Global South. So, Christianity is becoming predominantly non-Western. In other words, what is happening in Africa, Asia and Latin America will have a growing influence on what Christianity will be like worldwide.
