Striking changes are afoot in the way intellectuals address Christianity. Long seen as a largely Western tradition steadily losing its cultural influence in the West, Christianity has recently been re-installed at the center of debates that concern academic specialists and public intellectuals alike. In this TIF book blog discussion, a range of contributors examine Christianity’s return to prominence via responses to a special issue of the South Atlantic Quarterly entitled Global Christianity, Global Critique, edited by Matthew Engelke and Joel Robbins.

South Atlantic Quarterly is edited by Michael Hardt and published by Duke University Press.
