Postmodern and Wesleyan? is an exploration and internal dialogue on the current underpinnings of postmodernism as it relates to theology, church, community and mission in the Wesleyan tradition. Posting critical responses to essays on postmodernism, respected Wesleyan leaders state how the Christian faith might shape both the present and the future of the church in today's postmodern culture. In addition to these responses, a concluding thought is supplemented by Leonard Sweet at the end of each section. The comments and questions posed by Dr. Sweet will allow readers to continue this conversation within their Christian communities. By looking deeper into these crucial cultural topics of today, Postmodern and Wesleyan? will help churches who have advocates, both for and against postmodernism, continue to move forward in sharing the good news of God's love.
