New, different readings of church history are finally reflecting Christianitys deep roots in every culture worldwide. González listens to voices from centers other than the North Atlantic to help us see a different perspective of church history-a global story that includes those previously marginalized-as he offers us a hopeful outlook for the future of world Christianity.
