The world's religious map today is vastly different from that of 1914. What is the correlation between World War I and the change in today's world religions map? Dr. Philip Jenkins will speak on how World War I created a new world order for the great religions of the world.

Jenkins is a distinguished professor of history at Baylor University and co-director for the program on historical studies of religion in the Institute for Studies of Religion. He has published 24 books, including "The New Faces of Christianity: Believing the Bible in the Global South" (2006), "Jesus Wars" (2010), "The Next Christendom: The Rise of Global Christianity" (2011) and "Laying Down the Sword: Why We Can't Ignore the Bible's Violent Verses" (2011). His forthcoming book is titled "Four Horsemen: The Catastrophic Four Years that Remade the World's Religions" (2013).
