There is an interesting and detailed article in Newsweek this week about the decline of Christianity in America over the last ten years, which includes an interview with my near neighbor and fellow seminary colleague Al Mohler of Louisville Southern Baptist. Here is the link, see what you think.

I'm wondering what to do with the fact that Rick Warren recently baptized 800 people...
Mohler's association of "post-modern" and "post-Western" with "post-Christian" bothers me somewhat.
FYI - Dr. Mohler adds additional comment on the article in his 4/6/09 blog located here:
I need to sit down and listen to the full interview as I missed the last half of it, but today on NPR they did a segment about the global revival of religion. See here for interview.
Quote:They report compelling evidence of a religion boom. For example, they say China will be the world's biggest Christian country by 2050 — at the latest — and already the country has more churchgoers than members of the Communist party.
And I found interesting their assertion that some of the "rules" in China make actually making Christianity spread, that once you have a group meeting of more then 25 people that you must divide into 2 groups. So they have all these house churches dividing and multiplying like cells.
Anyhow, food for thought.
