Few topics have captured the attention of the contemporary Church like the phenomenal growth of Christianity in the Global South and the increase of those who identify as “Nones” in the West. The Christian faith looks more diverse than ever and has moved beyond the bounds of the West, presenting endless opportunities for study. At the same time, concern for organized religion in the West has led to a plethora of scholarship focused on analyzing and reaching the “Nones.” While most authors focus on one of these topics, Bryan Bishop combines them and proposes that the West might have something to learn from growing Jesus movements worldwide.
