    I have Jenkins' book and am aware of the problem thatr this growth poses. The
    problem is that educated first worlders are leaving the churches. The embrace
    of Christianity as their hunter gatherer socities fall apart under emerging
    nationalism is almost a natural process, but the abandonment of the churches
