With the rise of the Internet and newer hi-tech innovations, digital technology has profoundly affected the world. But what role does the church play in this multi-media dominated globe? In GloboChrist: The Great Commission Takes a Postmodern Turn Carl Raschke tackles the subjects of globalization, postmodernism, and information technology and the underlying impact these elements have on missions and evangelism. In addition, Raschke addresses the role Christianity plays in our increasingly pluralistic world, while providing concrete strategies for confronting these challenges. In short, Raschke helps Christians understand and respond to the technological shifts of the twenty-first century. This third volume in the well-received Church and Postmodern Culture series, will appeal to scholars, students, pastors, and interested lay readers alike leaving a lasting impact on culture at large.
The information age has not only interconnected the world but has also shrunk it. This global dynamic impacts Christianity, especially the Great Commission. How do believers make disciples of all nations in this digital world of religious diversity? Carl Raschke, author of the acclaimed The Next Reformation, answers such questions in GloboChrist. He explores the impact of globalization, postmodernism, and information technology on missions and evangelism, as well as the role that Christianity plays in an increasingly pluralistic world. In short, he helps Christians respond to the tectonic shifts of the twenty-first century. This third volume in the well-received Church and Postmodern Culture series is relevant to students, pastors, and all who care about the future of the church.
