A very concise introductory look at postmodernism,
This review is from: A Primer on Postmodernism (Paperback)
This book is a very strong introduction to the cultural shift of postmodernism. Grenz does a thorough job of giving an overview of the major post-Enlightenment trends in philosophy and epistemology. While some terms will be cumbersome to readers new to the subject (deconstructionalism, subject-object dualism, logocentrism, etc.), Grenz keeps things fairly palatable for a wide audience. One very strong aspect of the book is that it shows that postmodernism is NOT to be feared or lamented by Christians. While it certainly provides new challenges, Grenz does a remarkable job showing how the gospel can and should be contextualized to intersect the postmodern ethos. Highly recommended for those curious to do some philosophical digging.
