A penetrating look into our society and worldview,
By A Customer
This review is from: Postmodern Times: A Christian Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture (Turning Point Christian Worldview Series) (Paperback)
Perhaps Veith's greatest contribution in this entire book is his acknowledgment of the paradoxical situation in which postmodernism finds itself. Postmodernism has claimed to be all about "no absolutes," and yet the "fact" of no absolutes is itself an absolute truth. Christians, in particular, can be comforted in this because it seems that the pendulum has swung as far away from God as it can go...It can only swing back. The hopelessness of no absolutes will bring back many who yearn for something more certain and more comforting. Here is Veith's positive assessment of a movement in thought that is often viewed with a great deal of negativity by many Christians. I highly recommed this book.
