Overview

“This book stands out . . . Marcus Honeysett presents his case with straightforward resolve and plain speech.”

—D. A. Carson
Research Professor of New Testament
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

We live in a culture that has disposed of truth, standards of behavior, and Christian influence—a culture in meltdown. It is impossible to avoid the “live and let live” opinions and lifestyle choices that prevail around us, but we can learn how to cut through the cultural fog and think clearly as Christians.

In a case-study format, this accessible, straightforward book works through the philosophical and social ideas behind our aimless culture. Honeysett skillfully illustrates the otherwise abstract ideas of postmodernity with everyday situations and offers a solid basis on which Christians can make informed, biblical decisions about their personal worldviews.

“I know of no other book written at an introductory level that better cuts to the heart of postmodernism and charts a faithful, thoughtful, and passionate Christian response . . . Meltdown should be read and discussed by all [who want] to make sense of our postmodern world and speak to it in the name of Christ.”

—Douglas Groothuis
