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.
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.
