Christian "hot spots". The ten countries where Christianity is growing most remarkably or fastest. (Note: in all these countries, Christianity is still a minority. Sometime a tiny minority. We have to jettison our big battalion mindset to grasp the significance of these relatively small numbers. They all represent the growing edge of Christendom.) I like the fact that the author often includes specific figures for Catholics.
According to Justin Long, a missionary researcher, they are:
3. Burkino Faso
10. South Korea
Notice 7 of the 10 are in Asia. Where Christians are about to outnumber Buddhists for the first time.
The whole article is relatively short and worth a read.
