Review
Assessing the religious climate of Europe has always been a challenge, mostly because the secularized media pay no heed to religious trends. Consequently, it is easy to imagine the continent of Europe becoming in 50 years a "Eurabia" of sorts. Jenkins (history & religious studies, Penn State Univ.) insists, however, that Europe is still "God's Continent" and gives the reader an impressive review of the many Christian successes in Europe since the end of World War II. As his bibliography exemplifies, he has made extensive use of Internet sources to discover these successes, and he weaves an inspiring story of new beginnings in many countries, from the British Isles to Ukraine. He also draws apt comparisons between Europe and the United States and shows how the current religious intolerance of secularized Europe complicates matters for both Christianity and Islam. This is the third excellent volume in the author's already popular trilogy of Christianity. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.—Gary Gillum, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, UT --Gary Gillum (Reviewed June 1, 2007) (Library Journal, vol 132, issue 10, p124)
