“While theologians at the Universities of Tubingen and Utrecht were diminishing the total of Christian belief, strange charismatics in the slums of Mexico City and Sao Paulo, of Recife and Rio, of Cape Town, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi, were adding to it.  The first group spoke for thousands; the second for scores of millions.”

Paul Johnson, A History of the Modern World From 1917 to the 1980s (London, 1983), page 702.
