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.
