In a 2010 interview with National Public Radio, Jenkins stated that he believes that “the Islamic scriptures in the Quran were actually far less bloody and less violent than those in the Bible” and cites explicit instructions in the Old Testament calling for genocide while the Quran calls for primarily defensive war. Jenkins went on to state that Christianity, Islam, and Judaism had undergone a process that he refers to as “holy amnesia” in which violence in sacred texts became symbolic action against one’s sins. Islam had until recently also undergone the same process in which jihad became an internal struggle rather than war.


In 2002 Jenkins, a Catholic-turned-Episcopalian, discussed the Catholic sex abuse cases by asserting that his “research of cases over the past 20 years indicates no evidence whatever that Catholic or other celibate clergy are any more likely to be involved in misconduct or abuse than clergy of any other denomination—or indeed, than non-clergy. However determined news media may be to see this affair as a crisis of celibacy, the charge is just unsupported.”


In 1980, Jenkins was appointed Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Pennsylvania State University, which marked a change in his research focus. Jenkins has forged a reputation based on his work on global Christianity as well as on emerging religious movements. Other research interests include post-1970 American history and crime.


In 1979, Jenkins won the BBC quiz show Mastermind.
