Christianity is exploding around the world – except in Europe and America. Why is that true and what will it take for it to change? Historian, theologian and world-watcher, Dr. Glenn Sunshine will explore these movements of God across the globe and explain what is hindering His working in our nation. This may not be a comfortable conversation but it will force us to ask, “What is God doing without us and how can we join Him now?” Join Chris Brooks on Equipped and be prepared to have your heart stirred, your mind changed and your life re-directed!
