From the academy to pop culture, society is in the throes of change, rivaling the birth of modernity out of the decay of the Middle Ages. There is now a move from the modern to the postmodern era. But what is postmodernism? How did it arise? What characterizes the postmodern ethos? What is the postmodern mind and how does it differ from the modern mind? Who are its leading advocates? Most important of all, what challenges does this cultural shift present to the church, which must proclaim the gospel to the emerging postmodern generation? Stanley J. Grenz here charts the postmodern landscape. He shows the threads that link art and architecture, philosophy and fiction, literary theory and television. He shows how the postmodern phenomenon has actually been in the making for a century and then introduces listeners to the gurus of the postmodern mind-set. What he offers here is truly an indispensable guide for understanding today's culture.
