Either / Or

by Carl E. Braaten (Editor)
 
The contributors to this volume argue forthrightly that neopaganism is not merely an objective threat from outside the walls of the church; in fact, gnostic forms of thought and spirituality permeate the church's inner life under such guises as "pluralism," "multiculturalism," "feminism," and "hospitality." Their essays are a direct attack on once-Bible-centered

Overview

The contributors to this volume argue forthrightly that neopaganism is not merely an objective threat from outside the walls of the church; in fact, gnostic forms of thought and spirituality permeate the church's inner life under such guises as "pluralism," "multiculturalism," "feminism," and "hospitality." Their essays are a direct attack on once-Bible-centered doctrine that is now being mingled with "alternatives" that are inherently hostile to the Christian faith.

Editorial Reviews

Books & Culture
"Brief but important volume.... Each of the essays represents an attempt to counter the gnostic or neopagan cultural Zeitgeist in a fresh and penetrating way, examining the foundational premises of competing worldviews and theological pluralism while considering the ethical fallout of pluralism's ascendance."
First Things
We warmly recommend this spirited guide to Christian faithfulness in an often hostile culture.
Lutheran Forum
Very readable...a stimulating point of departure for cluster groups or adult forums.
Augsburg Fortress Book News
"A provocative collection of essays offering a critical view of the context in which twentieth century North American Christianity finds itself.... The question of whether the core of Christian faith is at stake in the impact of North American culture on North American theology is well worth considering. And this book is a thought-provoking and in many ways insightful handling of the question."
