Off the Shelf: The Future of the Global Church

The Future of the Global Church: History, Trends and Possibilities

By Patrick Johnstone

In The Future of the Global Church, Patrick Johnstone, author of six editions of the phenomenal prayer guide, Operation World, draws on his fifty years experience to challenge us with his bold vision of the global Christian church.

The Future of the Global Church weaves together the strands of history, demographics and religion to present a breath-taking, full-color graphical and textual overview of the past, present and possible future of the Church around the world.

I’m very interested in this big, beautiful volume from Johnstone. While Operation World provides a snapshot of the globe at one time, along with insightful prayer points, I expect this one will allow us to see the future–at least a bit.
