Where Change Is Leading

After completing the rest of the pie charts at the beginning of the article “Where Change Is Leading” (March 2018), we would notice another significant trend. While Christianity has remained constant at 33 percent of the world’s population over the past 100 years, Islam has nearly doubled and is currently about 25 percent of the world’s population. It is the fastest growing of the world’s major religions. At a 1.8 percent annual growth rate, the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world are increasing at a rate of nearly 80,000 per day.
