This book has some interesting statistics (see below) made more famous by Philip Jenkins. The Q & A format is annoying, and I didn't find his discussion of translation very helpful.

"In 1970 there were 120 million Christians, estimated; in 1998 the figure jumped to just under 330 million; and in 2000 to 340 million. The projections call for over 600 million Christians in twenty-five years. If those projections are right--and I will not go to the scaffold for them--apart from South America, Africa will have more Christians than any other continent, and that for the first time."
