Challenge of Postmodernism: An Evangelical Engagement

Challenge of Postmodernism: An Evangelical Engagement

by David S. Dockery (Editor)




This collection of essays seeks to define and examine the slippery issues related to postmodern thought. While the authors find some elements of modernity worth keeping, they contend that components of the premodern period are frequently more helpful for the church. These essays do not represent a retreat from modernity, but rather a recognition of its failure to fulfill what it has promised.
