Product Description

In this brief and highly accessible introductory work, Heath White paints the historical and philosophical background underlying postmodernism in understandable, but not oversimplified, language. Exploring the differences between premodern, modern, and postmodern thought White describes what postmodernism means to our view of self, language, thought, the search for knowledge, and culture. Ultimately, White encourages Christians to face the postmodern world with hope and courage without fear.

White's down-to-earth approach invites Christians who otherwise might have avoided postmodern theorizing into this important dialogue, while also providing vital information for those already engaged in the conversation. His questions for further thought after each chapter and suggestions for further reading provide a journey for readers beyond the text.

    I stumbled across "101" while completing a graduate project and found it by far one of the better books introducing the "divide" between premodern, modern, and postmodern. While I have read many (20+) others, I found White even handed - he is not an alarmist (which it seems so many are), nor is he dismissive ("It's only a fad...it will quickly pass"). My suggestion? I would couple "101" with "Who's afraid of postmodernism?"

    I read this book with fascination as person straddling the fence between modernism/postmodernism and not even knowing it. This book is a highly readable primer on exactly WHAT postmodernism is and should be considered a prerequisite for anyone considering jumping on the Ravi Zaccharias or Chuck Colson save the world bandwagon. It is so easy to condemn PM without knowing of what we speak when truly it is an (extreme) reaction to our (modernism's) failures. With a good understanding of what we are faced with, where it came from, and why we are faced with it, along with a great understanding of why we moderns believe what we believe we will be far better prepared to lovingly correct the errors of postmodernism and come alongside those who have embraced inevitable changes in the world and still work to bring people to a saving knowledge of Christ.P.S. I am a great fan of both Zaccharias and Colson.
