"If you are a mature believer who likes to think and be challenged (both ways) then reading a book like this will be good for you. Some bits will encourage you and challenge you positively, others will make you think long and hard about your beliefs." --as reviewed on the blog, Feeding the Five Thousand.
"I have read many books on the subject, and Rathburn offers one of the most insightful and easy-to-understand introductions and explanation of postmodernism that I have read. I recommend Russell Rathbun's insightful and intriguing work, not only for clergy or academics, but for anyone worried about the future of the church, experiencing the changes in culture, and wondering what it might mean to live faithfully - and authentically - as a Christian in today's world." --Kristopher Norris, Congregational Formation, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
"Rathbun asks all the right questions and whether you agree or disagree with them, the issues dealt with are vital to the church's effectiveness and relevance in today's society. I highly recommend this book." --Steve Bedard, as reviewed on the blog, Cassiciacum.
