Editorial Reviews

Review

"Seldom have I read such a combination of stellar intelligence, simple clarity, and a 'heart' understanding of Jesus and the Gospels. This book could resolve many people's faith questions and concerns. Jim Danaher talks with humility, honesty, and orthodoxy at the same time - which is rare today."

About the Author

James Danaher is a professor and chair of the department of philosophy at Nyack College, Nyack, New York.

I had never heard of James Danaher prior to reading this book. I ordered the book because I was intrigued by the title. Danaher has the rare ability to write about complex issues in a clear,direct, and concise manner. He says no more than he has to, but he says all that needs to be said. Danaher blends philosophy, theology, biblical exegesis, and traditional Christian spirituality with uncommon ease. Many of my PoMo colleagues have little use for Christianity. Many of my Christian friends see postmodernism as code for all that is unholy. I think both groups would enjoy and benefit from reading Dr Danaher's work.

As a postmodernist myself, I found this book helpful as it articulates a lot of my own experiences and current thought. Christianity is evolving as humanity evolves. It is important to acknowledge this development and consider where it might be taking us. This book does just that. It may be hard for a modernist to digest but I can say that Danaher is right on with postmodern Christian thought. If one wanted to understand it, this is a great place to start.

I highly recommend Danaher's book. I simply love the philosophical musings Danaher presents. He has restored my joy of exploring Christianity from the philosophical lens. I think only time will tell just how significant this book and Danaher's thoughts truly are. Danaher's gift to me and to an entire generation is the gift of understanding our faith in Jesus in the midst of massive rejection and accusation.

This book was written in 2006, and much has come to pass in 8 short years. It is commonly said that postmodernism is over. And so if we find we are reacting to post-modernism, we are probably behind the times, even if there is no clear name for post-postmodernism. Still I found it very helpful for me understand the post-modern viewpoints, especially since I lived through it and didn't even realize it! The value for me of Danaher's book is that he gives me the articulation I've been looking for to understand what was happening (and may still be happeneing) to me in the past decade.

Perhaps no other book has reshaped my filter of Christianity than this book. For any Christian who has carried a nagging sense that there's something awry with how they view their "walk with Jesus, or with how they perceive the gospel itself, this book will fix that problem. We are an inseparable product of our culture, including the ways in which we think, comprehend, perceive, and filter data and information. Therefore, it is impossible that any Christian can somehow be separated from their culture in such a way as to hope to be 100% objective. And even if they achieved that goal, that objectivity itself would have been necessarily predetermined by one's culture...once again.

Objectivity itself then must be redefined to mean understanding things the way God does, as revealed in the Bible...but also as worked out in the lives, cultures and applications of other believers around the world. In the end, seeing the Father as Jesus saw Him is the primary goal to be achieved, and not some legendary concept of objective truth. The author of this book both challenges this notion and puts forward a more realistic understanding of objectivity and truth in his most satisfying work.

This book so far is the best book I have found written by a postmodernist. I cannot put this book down and keep re-reading it. Most traditional reformists are unlikely to agree with Danaher's postmodernist views on the atonement. Though he does not mention it, Danaher's view is very similar to John Hick's. I highly recommend this book to those who are open to a postmodern view of the atonement.

I would highly recommed this book, particularly to people interested in philosophy and all Christians. The ideas discussed by Dr. Danaher cover topics Christians should be discussing, and the position of humility which he advocates will allow any spiritual seeker, regardless of religious affiliation, to grow and to better understand God. Furthermore, this transition from modern to postmodern thought in the Church is creating a great deal of debate and confusion. Dr. Danaher's work may serve to facilitate this ongoing discussion, to challenge the thinking of some who see postmodernism as moral relativism, and to unite the Church through a shared willingness to be corrected. Indeed, he shows us that one can approach Scripture with the humilty and curiosity of the Socratic method without sacrificing orthodoxy.
