fascinating statistics

Vitamin z has posted some bits from Mark Noll’s new book, The New Shape of World Christianity: How American Experience Reflects Global Faith

here are two of them (out of five that z posted):

This past Sunday more Anglicans attended church in each of Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda than did Anglicans in Britain and Canada and Episcopalians in the United States combined–and the number of Anglicans in church in Nigeria was several times the umber in those other African countries.

This past Sunday more Presbyterians were at church in Ghana than in Scotland, and more were in congregations of the Uniting Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa than in the United States.
