About this Guide
This is a basic guide to "World Christianity," or the Christian faith as it is practiced outside of North America and Europe: Africa, Asia, and Latin America. It provides basic guides as well as advanced information.
In this guide, clicking on a book title links you to Emory's EUCLID library catalog or the DiscoverE catalog search engine (or in some cases, to WorldCat, if Emory doesn't own it but can get it through inter-library loan). Clicking on a book cover image links you to Amazon. Clicking on a periodical title links directly to its online access page, or to the catalog.
