Tennent on African Christianity
"At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the typical "face" of Christianity may more likely be encountered in Lagos than in London... What is emerging is the sunrise of a fourth major branch of the Christian faith, not so easily pigeonholed within the familiar categories of Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant Christianity.
Andrew Walls predicts that if current trends continue, African Christianity will become 'the representative Christianity of the twenty-first century.' This emerging reality is why Philip Jenkens has boldly proclaimed the emerging Majority World church as 'the next Christendom.'"
