Global Christianity & American religious history

The Global War on Christians: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Anti-Christian Persecution, by John L. Allen Jr. Thankfully the West has become a little more aware of the violence and mayhem directed against Christians globally, but Allen’s catalog of atrocities stuns and enrages nonetheless. It gains its power from the author’s very wide knowledge of conflicts around the world, and also from his refusal to focus excessively on any one culprit.
