Theologian says China will have world's largest Christian population

Catholic World News - December 03, 2012

Cox, the Harvard Divinity School professor whose book The Secular City made him a liberal favorite in the late 1960s, made that prediction during a talk at the Gregorian University in Rome. Speaking about inter-religious dialogue, he said that Christianity is growing fastest today in countries that do not have a strong historical tradition of Christian culture.
