The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail
Nearly twenty years ago, when I first began serving on the editorial staff of Tabletalk, we decided to begin what became a two-decades-long overview series of church history. Since that time, the world has drastically changed, but the church has changed even more drastically. The twentieth century ushered in sweeping changes across the global landscape of Christianity, and those changes have continued into the new millennium. We have witnessed significant growth of the church in not only the Global South but also in places such as Iran, Afghanistan, and North Korea, where the church is growing faster than in most other countries.
