Sub-Subject Description - Christianity in the World.

According to the study, "Global Christianity - A Report on the Size and Distribution of the World’s Christian Population" (PewForum) in 1910 had about 600 million Christians, 66% of Christians lives in Europe.

However, today Europe represents only 26% of Christianity, America (37%) surpasses Europe, Africa has 24% of Christians and the Asia-Pacific Region the 13%.

From this point of view:

Christianity is surely the most globalized religion.

  1. America: 804
  2. Europe: 565
  3. Africa: 516
  4. Asia - Pacific: 285
  5. MENA (the Middle East and North Africa): 13

Number of Christians worldwide has almost quadrupled in the last hundred years, about 600 millions of people in 1910 to 2,000 million.

As we can see, the United States, accounts for 11% of Christianity. Followed by six emerging countries (except India, are all BRIC). Only one European country, Germany; it is among these countries.

Like Buddhism or Zoroastrianism, Christianity is just nonexistent where was born and his early influence area (North Africa, the Middle East, and Turkey). In the Middle East only 4% of the population are Christians (about 13 million). In fact, there are more Christians in Indonesia (20 million) than in all the MENA Region (the Middle East and North Africa).
