Given the diversity and complexity of developments in the twentieth century, a history of the Christian Church in the modern period is in some ways the most challenging volume of all to write. But Jeremy Morris succeeds in presenting a coherent account of the Church. He emphasises the changing relationship of Western churches to the many forms of Christianity in other parts of the world, while also departing from the Eurocentric worldview of previous histories. His volume offers three major perspectives. The first is political, in which the history of the modern Church is assessed through a prism of international conflicts and international relations. The second perspective is regional, in which coverage is given not only to Europe and the Americas , but to Christianity in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Australasia. The author's third major perspective is institutional, in which he discusses particular Christian traditions and their relationships with each other, with other faiths and with wider cultures. An epilogue evaluates the future and prospects for Christianity in the new millennium.

Economic growth has been extremely robust following the country’s discovery of oil in 2007, reaching well into the double-digits and driving a boom in consumption and investment. The discovery in Ghana’s offshore Jubilee field in 2007 represented something of a turning point in the country’s economic trajectory. Followed by growth rates that at one point reached above 14%, as well as a GDP re-basing that improved the accuracy of its reporting, the country has moved up into lower middle-income status. As a result of its recent economic surge and stable environment, investment levels have continued to rise, as companies both foreign and domestic are eager to capitalise on the country’s wealth of natural resources and growing middle class. There have been challenges, as public spending comes under pressure and commodity exports remain exposed to exogenous shocks, but the economy’s fundamentals are encouraging.

From the Preface: The Revelation of St. John was for a long time a shut book to me. That it was necessary here to lay open a new path, that neither the course pursued in the older ecclesiastical, nor that of the modern Rationalistic exposition was to be followed, I never entertained a doubt.... The title shows that this work is intended for all who search the Scriptures. The remarks contain little of a grammatical nature. The text will present no difficulties to cultivated readers, even though not theologians, if they are only animated by the earnest desire to become thoroughly acquainted with the contents of the book.... I commend this work, the deficiencies of which I deeply feel, to Him who has given me strength to execute it thus far, and who has rendered it to myself a source of edification and comfort.
