Abstract:

Allen uses his knowledge of world affairs and religious insight to investigate the troubling worldwide persecution of Christians. In the early 21st century, they are the world's most persecuted religious group. According to the secular International Society for Human Rights, 80 percent of violations of religious freedom in the world today are directed against Christians. Underlying the global war on Christians is the demographic reality that more than two-thirds of the world's 2.3 billion Christians now live outside the West, often as a beleaguered minority up against a hostile majority.
