Chapter Summary

This index section of the book Orthodoxy, Liberalism, and Adaptation contains chapters from the Hebrew Bible and New Testament and the ancient stones near East. The chapters in the book argue three views. (i)Orthodoxy is not to be seen as the real and original form of a given religion, but as an idealized original form that should be construed as a construction in reaction to changes in time. (ii) Over the ages, liberalism-despite its laudable strives for adaptation - has been less successful than generally assumed. This lesson from history can be quite important in view of the adaptation processes for Muslims in Western Europe. (iii) Of great importance for the survival of religion seems to be a clear definition of the boundaries of religiously informed practices and ethics.
