Report: Christianity Growing in Indonesia

Ad Feedback

A religious revolution is taking place in Indonesia.

Time magazine reports that Christianity is growing at a remarkable rate there.

Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim nation with 215 million adherents, but a new census shows that 10 percent of Indonesians are now Christian.

The growth is mostly among evangelical and pentecostal churches.

In the country's capital of Jakarta there are 40 evangelical churches. Just 50 years ago there were none.

Still, the growth is not without a price.

Christian churches and schools have been attacked or forced to close by radical Muslim groups.
