Gordon-Conwell Database
« on: October 18, 2003, 11:37:43 AM »
I pulled the following data off of the Gordon-Conwell World Christian Database http://www.globalchristianity.org/ after an article ran in todays local paper about it. There are several of these numbers that look really interesting and that I would question. Thought I would post this info to get the comments of the board.
