Africa's Turn?

On Friday, August 08, 2003, in a post entitled Kairos and Africa, I speculated that Africa might take the lead in 21st Century Christendom. This idea is now supported by the leading role played by Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria in the fight in the Anglican Communion against the "consecreation" of the gay bishop Gene Robinson in the United States.

Phillip E. Johnson, writing in Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity in an article entitled The African Century?, agrees. He also has this to say:

It is already accurate to say that a majority of the world’s Christians, and the most faithful Christian witnesses, are to be found either in Africa and South America, or in Asian countries like China and Korea.

I was happy to see Korea accurately included.
