‘We are dealing with a deep change in the culture – religious and otherwise – of North American society. An era of de facto American Christendom in which the Protestant mainline churches had been the religious establishment of the culture [is] ending. Furthermore, modernity and its hallmark values – reason, self-sufficiency, progress, and optimism – [are] losing their sense of inevitability and their taken-for-granted status.’ –Anthony B. Robinson.
