Christianity is currently the world's largest religion, but the global Muslim population is growing rapidly. Within the lifetimes of most children now living, there will be more Muslims than Christians in the world.The figures in the report are fully consistent with the authoritative projections prepared by the United Nations, and show how the population totals will be distributed by religion in every country around the world.So what will it mean for the world if Islam becomes the largest religion?A great deal of the religious violence in recent years has been between Sunnis and Shiites. We should be wary of thinking of world religions as monolithic blocks. The world today has billions of Christians and Muslims, the vast majority of whom have no desire but to live in peace and happiness.What matters is successful modernization, not which religion happens to be dominant.
