The growth of a global Christianity in the developing nations which is more conservative and fundamentalist than that of the developed nations poses a dilemma for future relations between the North and South.
Each session of this conference will include a time to respond to questions from conference participants. The three sessions for the conference will be:
Globally - Shall the Fundamentalists Win? What Are The Political and Social Implications of a Rising Global Christianity? Towards a Definition of Fundamentalism for Today
Our presenter this year will be Philip Jenkins, Distinguished Professor of History and Religious Studies at Penn State University.
