"Cultures or societies that are literalist or even fundamentalist in one generation can in later years become liberal, if not highly skeptical of all forms of faith; and that pattern occurs frequently—though not inevitably—across faith traditions."
- Philip Jenkins,The New Faces of Christianity: Believing the Bible in the Global South (New York: Oxford University Press, Inc., 2006), 15.
