Excellent Analysis of Postmodern Christianity
February 3, 2012
Coral Gables, Fl.
Excellent thought-provoking look at the challenges facing Christianity in the Western, Post-Modern world. The author analyzes Evangelicalism in the West through three main strands: The mainline Evangelical tradition, the Market/Seeker Friendly model, and the Emergent Church movement. Analyzing the issues facing each, the author makes a bold and strong case for Evangelicalism in the West finding its center in Christ alone, through the authority of God's Word. The author repeatedly states how Christianity, in the desire to become relevant to the culture has made itself irrelevant in the Postmodern World. A great read to challenge both the lay person and the leadership of churches. It is time for solid doctrine to make a comeback in Evangelical Christianity.
Excellent! One of the most important books I have ever read. I was curious why Wells placed the chapter on truth before the chapter on God, but this order hardly matters because God is the main subject throughout this work. I believe he arranged the material this way for the sake of his argument. Nevertheless, this arrangement may give some readers the wrong impression. Along with heartily recommending this book I recommend the following reading strategy: read it one chapter at a time, taking breaks in between, and give yourself at least an hour to read each chapter. I found this way - rather than reading a few pages or a few minutes at a time - was best for helping me follow Wells' argument. Enjoy the book apply its message!
Wells is always insightful. This work is a helpful analysis of how the church got to where it is today. It is a very quotable book. I feel all his books could use some boiling down. I wish it had more bite in a way that I suppose only Tozer could do it. Even he admits in the book it is not high on giving answers to the problems presented.
