Christianity and the Postmodern Turn

Christianity and the Postmodern Turn Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Addresses the promises and perils of postmodernity for the church today.

Synopsis:

In our post-Cold War, post-colonial, post-Christian world, Western culture is experiencing a dramatic shift. Correspondingly, says Myron Penner, recent philosophy has taken a postmodern turn in which traditional concepts of reality, truth, language, and knowledge have been radically altered, if not discarded.

Here James K.A. Smith, John Franke, Merold Westphal, Kevin Vanhoozer, Douglas Geivett, and R. Scott Smith respond to the question, What perils and/or promises does the postmodern turn hold for the tasks of Christian thinkers? Addressing topics such as the nature of rationality and biblical faith, the relationship of language to reality, and the impact of postmodern concerns on ethics, this book presents a variety of positions in vigorous dialogue with each other.
