Postmodernism, with its denial of objective knowledge and deconstruction of language, has become a major topic of discussion in academic circles everywhere. How are evangelical thinkers responding to this new trend? In Postmodernizing the Faith, respected theologian Millard Erickson explores six evangelical responses--both positive and negative--to postmodernism and offers his own reaction to the movement. Erickson's purpose is "to introduce readers to postmodernism, to sensitize them to the importance of the issues, and to show them some samples of differing evangelical responses." Following an introductory chapter describing postmodernism, Erickson presents the responses of three evangelicals who consider the movement incompatible with orthodox Christianity. Next he details the thought of three evangelicals who believe "postmodernism is a development that needs to be accepted, and Christian theology done in light of it, and incorporating at least some of it." In each chapter Erickson offers a judicious critique, highlighting both the strengths and weaknesses of the particular view being discussed.

Excellent!

What is so outstanding about this volume is how the author points out what is the most glaring failure of this movement, namely its unawareness or unacknowledgement of its own Control Beliefs, Premises, Presuppositions, Historical Context, Philosophical/Metaphysical Bent which so heavily shape its content and conclusions. What is needed for any theological/doctrinal system that challenges evangelical/historical positions is a declaration,discussion and defense of such presuppositions, how they compare to the competition and why theirs are more plausible/tenable. Until postmodernism and other movements such as neotheism can engage at this fundamental level, any meaningful dialog with reality and Biblical truth is futile. Recommended highly to stimulate further research in this challenging arena.
