Paul Freston's book is a pioneering comparative study of the political aspects of the new mass evangelical Protestantism of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and parts of Asia. The book examines twenty-seven countries from the three major continents of the Third World, burrowing deep into the specificities of each country's religious and political fields. The conclusion looks at the implications of evangelical politics for democracy, nationalism and globalization. This unique account of the politics of global evangelicalism will be of interest across disciplines and in many different parts of the world.

Editorial Reviews

"Paul Freston provides readers with the first systematic account of the evangelical Christians and politics in the developing world... a valuable publication that pushes discussion of a controversial topic much further along than current debates often do...Freston has opened a window to a comprehensive view." Edward L. Cleary, International Bulletin of Missionary Research
