Although Christianity has been present in Asia for two millennia, it is currently experiencing a period of lightning-quick growth. For the first time, a one-volume reference chronicles the history of Asian Christianity, profiles its major leaders and dissects its various movements and denominations. In A Dictionary of Asian Christianity, editor Scott Sunquist includes entries on political events (e.g., the Korean and Vietnam Wars) and also discusses how Christianity has existed side-by-side with indigenous Asian religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. The entries are marvelously thorough for a dictionary, and well-written. (Eerdmans, $75 1024p ISBN 0-8028-3776-X; June)
