There’s a greatstory in The Economist about religious affiliations in sub-Saharan Africa.
It is based on a new study funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Templeton Foundation.
You can look at reams of pages of data in the report — or simply take a look at the graphic at the top of the Economist. It tells the story.
In 1900, most Africans followed tribal religions. Islam was the second largest religion. Christianity was barely a blip on the map. 110 years later, Christianity is the dominant religion. It’s one of the great Christian missionary success stories in the history of Christendom.
