9781581343427: The Postmodern World: Discerning the Times and the Spirit of Our Age

In both subtle and distinct ways, postmodernism has permeated American life, becoming a part of our schools, our TV shows, our churches, our conversations, and even our own thinking. How often have we said or heard, "Do what you want, but don't push your values on me," or "You live your life, and I'll live mine"?

Its sheer pervasiveness demands that we ask: Is there anything wrong with postmodernism, or with the tolerance, pluralism, individualism, and casualness that it promotes?

With compelling illustrations from current events and everyday life, as well as his customary sound analysis, Millard Erickson equips discerning evangelical Christians not only to understand and recognize the phenomenon of postmodernism but to deal with its effects in a relevant, biblically minded way. As he unearths its evolution, he forcefully reveals postmodernism's inherent problems and its incoherence with the teachings of God's Word. He also unveils the greatest areas of concern for Christians and gives people the tools they need to respond more wisely, believe more certainly, and discern more soundly in this confusing age.

Book Description Crossway Books, Wheaton, Illinois, 2002. Softbound. Book Condition: NEW. 144pp. Is postmodernism harmful, beneficial--or even indifferent to Christianity or society? Before we can determine this, we must know what postmodernism is and how it is influencing everything about our lives. Using current events and everyday illustrations, the "dean of evangelicalism" offers a lively discussion on postmodernism's characteristics and its effect on popular culture, education, entertainment and Christianity. In this way, Erickson helps readers better understand and interact with the world around them and gives people the tools to respond more wisely, believe more certainly and discern more soundly.
