Using a blog format, A New Kind of Conversation
is an experimental book that enters into a conversational theological exploration with five evangelical leaders and academics (Brian McLaren, Bruce Ellis Benson, Ellen Haroutunian, Mabiala Kenzon and Myron Bradley Penner), who are the primary bloggers. Originally posted on anewkindofconversation.com, people all over the world were invited to blog on the following topics:
- What is "Postmodernity"?
- What is a Postmodern Evangelical?
- Theology and (Non)(Post) Foundationalism
- The Bible, Theology and Postmodernism
- Evangelical Faith and (Postmodern) Others
- Postmodern Apologetics
- Postmodern Ministry
- Spiritual Formation in a Postmodern Context.
This book is a condensed version of that conversation.
